I am so excited to share today’s unboxing video! Last year the website Zavvi announced a new worldwide exclusive Star Wars collectible – a gorgeous Princess Leia bracelet and armband set. This was a must-have collectible for me – Princess Leia and jewelry? Yes please! These are not just replicas, but real full metal wearable pieces.
That box though, it was a mission to get the items out – well, you’ll see in the video…
Check out the full unboxing video here –
The set is a limited edition of 1,500 pieces, each with a numbered certificate of authenticity. The set includes a bracelet and armband, replicas from the metal bikini outfit Princess Leia wears in Jabba’s palace in Return Of The Jedi. The jewelry comes in a black display box, with the edition number on the top, and a neat hyperspace print inside the lid.
Many years ago I finally had the courage to wear Princess Leia’s metal bikini outfit at our local convention. It was a big step in my body positivity journey, and it felt special that it was a Princess Leia costume that helped me get there. These pieces are a reminder of that experience, and help me feel more confident and ready to slay.
I absolutely love that SalesOne is making more replicas of jewelry see in the Star Wars films. From General Leia’s ring, to Rose and Paige Tico’s matching necklaces, and more – I really hope this is a trend that continues, so we might see the range include characters like Padme’ Amidala as well.
As always, I’ll have a full review with more photos on the blog soon, but I just wanted to share my excitement about finally getting my hands on this beautiful set. It took a lot longer to arrive than I hoped, but it was worth the wait.
May the Force be with you!
