Pilot Leia by AdamHughes Pilot Leia by AdamHughes
This is a trading card I did for Topps' STAR WARS Galaxies 5 card set, released today.

Before anyone gets confused, this is from the very first Star Wars novel, SPLINTER OF THE MIND'S EYE (1978), by Alan Dean Foster. It starts off with Luke and Leia flying to a diplomatic mission on one planet only to be forced into a crash-landing on another. Luke was in his X-Wing, and Leia was piloting a 2-seater Y-Wing with Threepio. I'm assuming Leia wasn't doing this in her white robes....

I guess I always liked the idea of Leia in the rebel pilot flight gear.

10" X 14", pencil & ink on 3-ply Strathmore Series 500 illustration board, then colored in Adobe Photoshop CS2.

First ever imaging of Leia as a pilot?

Now it's official in Dark Horse's new Star Wars ongoing series!

Do you have any prints of this, or is it a Topps exclusive?  If so, do they have any prints (roughly poster size) of this picture?  I'm in a mad search for non-Slave-Leia prints.

This is a really great idea and it was beautifully executed. It would have been pretty awesome to see Leia work as a fighter pilot during the Death Star run.

Sorry, princess. But you're not getting that helmet on over those buns.
