I wasn't too keen on buying any of these rehashed paintjobs at first, but Leia looks great. I still love the Hoth Leia from the Solo basic line, but I can never have too many Leia figures. I'm an opener, but I love the cardback so much, that I might actually keep this one carded because its mint as well. Its probably one of my favorite cardbacks from the entire TVC run. Hopefully we can get an ANH Leia (hood up) with a similar likeness before TVC comes to a close. A TFA General Leia (vest) with photo real tech would also be nice, considering how the TBS 3.75 figure of her from TFA turned out...
I won't be upgrading any of my figures with the new tech, unless I happen to find one in a store (hahahahaha!) and it looks amazing.
But I'm really unimpressed with the results of this new technique. The results are mixed at best. Of the figures I have, Skiff Lando is pretty sketchy, Young Lando is pretty good and Crait Luke is...okay.
But, I'd really rather have figures that I could look at without reading glasses to discern their faces, eyes and expressions. Everyone is squinty at best, rough and pixelated at worst.
