Original Wax Sculpting for Micro Collection Leia Hoth
The Micro Collection featured three Princess Leia figures, and only one of them represented the distinctive snow suit the character wore while on the ice planet Hoth. Above you see the original wax sculpting used by Kenner to produce this figure.

Here you see the back. In addition to being the only Leia Hoth Micro figure, it's the one to come closest to replicating the Travolta pose from Saturday Night Fever.

The silicon mold created off the wax for the purpose of making 4-up hardcopies.

And here you see two such hardcopies, one painted and one unpainted, along with the wax. That whitish stuff you see around the ankles of the wax is the result a pretty shoddy repair. The blaster is made from what appears to be a combination of urethane and injection-molded plastic.
