The Gold Standard…
I want to start off by thanking everyone for their patience as we got everything squared away on Jabba! Your understanding, makes me realize how lucky I am! You are all the absolute BEST. We’ve been doing this for awhile now, and just when I think I couldn’t be more humbled by you all, you never cease to amaze me. Thank you, for being AWESOME, and making me feel like the luckiest artist alive!
So this is another one I’ve been wanting to do for awhile. I mean, it doesn’t get much more iconic. She is a character who transcends even Star Wars. Even if you’ve never watched any of the movies, you know Princess Leia.
I’d always wanted to do a Leia figure, but after her untimely passing, I really struggled with the idea. I love Princess Leia, and the thought of being able to offer a version of her that would probably not get to be made otherwise was awesome. We can’t have enough Leia!
She passed away on my birthday, so I will never forget the day one of my favorite characters was taken away from us. One of my biggest regrets with doing these Star Wars books, was never getting a chance to meet her. I have never heard one cross word. Whether it was her adorable dog, or being splashed with glitter, every person who met her said she was a true shining light. It’s because of this, that I feel the only way to honorably make this cover is to continue to spread her love, in whatever small way I can. So with that said, I will be donating a portion of this sale to one of Ms. Fisher’s favorite charities, The Make-A-Wish foundation.
With all of that, it is with loving memory that I present…
– JTC EXCLUSIVE full-color LEIA ORGANA: YAVIN GOWN Action Figure Variant for Star Wars #58, exclusively at johntylerchristopher.com
She will be available for Pre-sale on November 15th.
Like before, we are offering graded books of 9.6 or better from both CGC & CBCS. You get to choose between two exceptional grading services.
The book will be limited to 3,000.
So with that out of the way, here’s the slim.
What can be said about a character who had such an impact on us as a culture. I remember playing with the toys as a kid, and Leia was always a part of those memories. I never thought of her as a damsel-in-distress, so whenever I would play, she was always right there in the thick of the action. With Jedi being one of the first movies I remember, I always had her with a blaster or a lightsaber, kicking butt and taking names!
Nothing warms my heart more than seeing my daughters eyes light up when they see her on Endor, and I know that her legacy will live on in them.
