Princess Leia in Bespin Gown Large Size Action Figure Prototype
Of the four unproduced Empire Strikes Back dolls, this one was certainly the most detailed. In addition to a new set of clothes, Leia would have had a new hairstyle, which required a new rooting pattern in the "scalp" area.

Note that this Leia has a cloth belt, similar to the one seen in this photo, while the photo on the prototype box indicates that she would have had a belt similar to the one from the Star Wars Leia doll, but with a hook added for a gun. Interestingly, the photo from a trade advertisement shows Leia wearing the gun belt over the cloth belt. The concept artwork for this doll can be seen here.
