#83: Star Wars The Black Series - Han Solo

The coolest smuggler in the galaxy has made the jump to the six inch Black Series, and I'm going to suggest that it is the best Han Solo figure Hasbro has made to date. This is Han in what is probably his most iconic look, his outfit from the original Star Wars. The Harrison Ford likeness has been all over the place through the years, and this one turned out decently enough. It's definitely better from some angles, but it's there. For accessories, Han includes his trusty blaster, and a removable gun belt.

Swappable hands are fairly uncommon in domestic mass market releases, but Han gets an extra pair sporting his piloting gloves.

His other accessories are a Stormtrooper blaster and a removable Stormtrooper belt with holster. The use of accessories for Han is pretty great, as it allows for display in various scene specific looks, without having to buy a new figure whose only difference is a pair of gloves. Also, I would like to point out that the Correllian bloodstripes on Han's pants are sculpted on. It's still amazing to get six inch figures with so much unique tooling.

"I don't remember the cockpit being so small."

While my favorite look for Han is his outfit from Empire Strikes Back with the blue jacket, I'm glad I didn't wait for it and got this figure. This is making me really look forward to the upcoming Chewbacca figure.
