A brave pilot, a reckless smuggler, a careless pirate, a skilled soldier and of course a great hero in one person. People like Han Solo are extremely rare in the known Galaxy. When he involved in the Rebel Alliance, nothing and nobody was able to prevent him from going down in history. This figure is based on Solo's look from "A new hope", shortly before the trash compactor action on the Death Star station.
As many modern figures, this version of Solo is greatly articulated, so there is no problem with stability. It has 14 articulation points: head, shoulders, elbows, arms, waist, knees, legs and ankles. The paint application is well done except one sad detail: the sleeves of Han's shirt are brighter than the rest. An unbelievable mistake in such experienced company as Hasbro! For me the sculpt is nice, only the face is not as similar to Harrison Ford's one as in other version of Han Solo toy. As you can check on photos, the figure is quite detailed.
Solo comes with parts of regular Imperial Stormtrooper equipment: a white helmet, a chest armour and a blaster. Sounds great, unfortunately the accessories are not a strong part of this toy. The helmet is over-sized and looks stupid compared to normal Stormtrooper figures (Han's neck is still visible). Just the opposite, the armour seems to be too small - it is impossible to cover entire chest. Furthermore, there remains some free space between the armour and Solo's belly. It should be fixed! Only the blaster is decent - it fits well into both hands and you can keep it in holster.
If you don't own any Han Solo figures yet (is it possible?) or your version is very old, you can buy this one. Its accessories are really poor, but without them you have a decent Star Wars action figure.
He has to be one of the hunkiest fellas in the Star Wars universe. Mr Han Solo was portrayed by Harrison Ford in three of the movies. Han Solo assisted Luke Skywalker in the rescue of Princess Leia and became a key player in the Rebel Alliance. He would eventually go on to marry the Princess.
Since the film came out in 1977 there have been dozens of Han Solo figures. The original toy hit stores shortly after the film was released. Han was an interesting figure, as his head was not the right size in relation to his body, so it was quickly remodelled by toy giant Kenner.
This new Han Solo is part of the Legacy Collection and is a pleasing addition to the series. Han's face is in proportion to his body this time and his hair colour is just about right too, with some nice detailing on the crown area. The Kenner toy had way too glossy hair! Han's sleek black waistcoat looks the business and is cut at the right length too. It sits over his slouchy white shirt well.
I was particularly pleased to see the trousers had improved this time around. The blue shade has been captured very well and they do look like the ones he wore in the original film. Han's slacks are quite tight too, which is accurate.
He is fully poseable and also comes with a droid part, the idea is to collect the droid parts to make a bigger creation. Han is equipped with a blaster which he can grip with ease in either hand. My only criticism is the price. At near on ten pounds, the figure is too expensive for the casual buyer and could be placed at half that in price. Otherwise, thumbs up for another good Han toy.
