She looks like a great addition to the game. Looking forward to it.

Gameplaywise she looks good... her mini is really stupid though.

She's just standing there with her hand on her hip and chillin' with the gun in the air.

What? Women can't be actiony? The imperial officer might not be shooting at anything - but at least he's pointing at something...

I'm not sure why but this sculpt really bugs me for some reason.

Agreed. Why not just use her pose on the cover?

Right? That would have worked great!

Ironically, 'On a Diplomatic Mission' should be way better on Gideon, who rarely attacks, than Leia, who has an awesome attack.

Totally agree. About a month or two ago FFG mentioned twitter being on BoardgameQuest's Top 10 games with positive female role models. My one criticism to IA being on the list was that Leia looks like she's modeling rather than fighting in the images released of her figure.

When FFG posted the tweet about the new article today I asked if she was the first figure for IA that doesn't look like she's in a fight. Having looked through my collection (Core, Wave 1, Twin Shadows, Wave 2) the only figures that aren't in a pose that conveys motion are the droids/at-st. Even the Imperial Guards look like they could be marching in formation instead of just standing in place.

I'm guessing there was some heavy inspiration from this vintage poster from 1977:



But, yeah. Agreed. I'm worried when we finally get Lando, it's going to be him running a comb through his hair!

You all are looking at the mini wrong... she is clearly shooting something that is flying above her without even looking... what a BAMF!

Ha! that would be great for Lando - even better, put a miniature 40oz Colt 45 on there somewhere

For anyone who isn't familiar with that reference (and also because this ad campaign is AMAZING):

The Leia pose doesn't bother me too much. I just hope they work on the mini for Verena more. I can put my finger on it but the way it looks in the preview is just dumb. I think it's the blaster pistol and how she's holding it

The pose may have been to make the figure more visually distinct from Luke, since the color and shape of their outfits are similar, and his pose is similar to the pose in Leia's card art.
