When Lucasfilm was acquired by Disney, Princess Leia joined the ranks of not-so-helpless royalty who are known to encounter the occasional cute and furry critter in the woods. In this scene by Miro Dudas Leia meets the adorable Ewok Wicket, played by Warwick Davis who landed this promotion from extra Ewok when Kenny Baker fell ill. The figure of Leia is expertly crafted, particularly her hat, which has a distinct shape. The use of BrickHeadz eye tiles for Wicket is the perfect contrast to Leia’s plain brown eyes made from sideways facing 1×1 round plates. I suspect that Leia is as tempted to pinch those furry little cheeks as I am.
Back in late 2017, before LEGO released any BrickHeadz characters from the Star Wars Classic Trilogy, we reviewed the New York Comic-Con exclusive Boba Fett & Han Solo in Carbonite. I excoriated LEGO for creating artificial scarcity in what would inevitably be an incredibly popular set. That set is now selling for at least $200 on eBay, but there’s good news: LEGO has now released another wave of Star Wars BrickHeadz characters, this time including Boba Fett (41629), Princess Leia (41628), and Luke Skywalker & Yoda (41627).
