Leia’s Jabba Kill Immortalized in LEGO Tribute to Carrie Fisher

Leia’s Jabba Kill Immortalized in LEGO Tribute to Carrie Fisher

It’s only been a few months since Carrie Fisher suddenly passed away, but we are far from over the loss our beloved Princess General Leia. For years, Fisher was not only a movie star and one of the top script doctors in Hollywood, she was a frequent guest on the convention circuit. In fact, Fisher had been scheduled to be a guest at Emerald City Comic Con next week. To honor Fisher and note her absence from the con, one fan took it upon himself to use LEGOs to recreate the moment from Return of the Jedi where Leia killed Jabba the Hutt.

And it’s as badass as you’d expect from the feminist icon:

Leia vs Jabba LEGO 1

Via Neatorama, the LEGO Leia vs. Jabba was created by Iain Heath and inspired by a statue that was produced by Sideshow Collectibles. On his Flickr page, Heath wrote, “We’ve already seen LEGO tributes showing a demure Princess Leia shoving a floppy disk into some poor hapless droid, but I wanted to reimagine a moment from the original trilogy that really captured Fisher’s feisty character!” Truer words. And, it has to be said that the expression on LEGO Jabba’s face is pretty hilarious.

As is Leia’s plucky determination for ending the man that put her in such an objectifying outfit:

Leia vs Jabba LEGO 3

For years, Leia’s costume in Jabba’s palace has been called “Slave Leia,” but this LEGO creation seems to be more appropriate for Leia’s more recent nickname: Huttslayer. It’s a fitting title for her, and has even worked its way into the Star Wars canon via one of the official novels.
