Series: Black Series 6″ Phase 3 – Wave 5
We would have paid whatever Hasbro could have stuck on this figure just to have another Han Solo figure to add to our collection. It could have been poorly designed and hideous; we still would have offered up our wallet for him. Fortunately for us, Hasbro made a wonderful looking figure that is one of the best from the current phase. As much as we love Han the way it is, this figure blew us away.
While we have several favorite features on this figure, just starting at the top brings us to where Hasbro made this Han Solo. The head sculpt blows away the other figures. The older, weathered face comes through perfectly with small details in his molding that really make him lifelike. This gets combined with the coloring of the plastic for a genuine looking skin color and texture. Even his hair gets plenty of lines and texture for the full experience.
If raving about his head was not enough, Hasbro created the best looking jacket yet for him. His jacket here looks so much better than what you’ll see on Finn or Poe Dameron. The sold already has a roughness to it that is expanded with a paint job that makes it look like a real used leather jacket. We are still just in awe how they managed to work plastic to look like genuine leather. There wasn’t as much to impress as with his jacket, but his undershirt and pants were very well done with great folds that captures them flowing during movement. As with his original, younger release, he features his blaster holster if you don’t want him hanging onto his iconic blaster.
They smartly placed his articulation points for a variety of movement and angles. We’re pretty sure he can be put into double the amount of action poses that the real Harrison Ford can actually pull off now. Where his legs come together at his crotch is the only point where the articulation made us look at the figure and think this was actually a figure and not a sculpture.
Hasbro really out did themselves with this. It certainly is a fitting tribute for the most notorious and popular smuggler in the galaxy. While perfect alone, our suggestion is to make sure to grab Chewbacca to go with him. Then it will truly feel like being home again and you won’t be able to stop smiling looking at them.
