New Arealight Printed Items Coming

Arealight Slave Leia as CowboyArealight recently released this picture to announce that new printed items are coming.

If you get over the fact that this fig looks like some fantasy mash-up of the Collectible Minifigure Cowboy and Slave Leia, you'll notice the torso (how can you miss it). It would appear that Arealight will be offering a Slave Leia torso with their signature curves. I couldn't find an instance where this had been offered previously. It would also appear that more female Twi'lek figs are on their way too.

Several of the custom houses have introduced minifigure innovations that would be great to see in official LEGO figures. I get that LEGO would likely have to reconfigure their production lines to produce these more feminine torsos, and that its just cheaper to silhouette the figure with print. Here's to hoping that some of the production out of China might open the doors for these types of experiments.
