Thomas takes his first steps into a larger world with the incredible Sixth Scale Han Solo Figure by Hot Toys
The return of the rebellion general Han Solo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been one of the most anticipated highlights of the epic film as the infamous smuggler plays a critical role in the unfolding of the story. Hot Toys have delivered the highly anticipated 1:6th scale collectable figure of Han Solo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens! The highly-accurate collectable figure is specially crafted based on the image of Harrison Ford as Han Solo in the movie. It features a newly developed head sculpt and hands, a finely tailored outfit and winter gear, all-new blaster pistol, and a specially designed figure stand.
Following my review of the Hot Toys General Leia Organa figure, my second Hot Toys review is focussing on Han Solo (The Force Awakens)! I had to pay more than for Leia but the extra cost can be justified by the extra gear included, Han comes with his normal outfit and the snow outfit! The box is the same as Leia’s box except at the back there is no promotional picture of the figure, there’s one at the front and one inside.
Han comes with plenty of accessories – a blue coat, a scarf, his blaster, two additional interchangeable hands (so that’s 4 in total for the basic outfit) and 4 interchangeable hands for the snow outfit. It also has two hand joints replacements, I like that they include replacement parts, you never know with that kind of joints, at least if you break one you can replace it immediately! Han also comes with a stand which is more basic than Leia’s – it’s just the rebel symbol. The only annoying thing was the 6 cylinders – 3 for the leather jacket and 3 for the snow jacket. They were really tricky to put on, it would have been easier if it had been assembled at the factory.
About the face sculpt, I’m going to say it’s perfection once again, I can’t say anything less than that. It amazes me how detailed it is – the scar on his chin, the hair, the eyes, the scruffy look, everything’s there! I can’t even imagine the amount of time, the sculptors have to spend on each figure! It’s Harrison Ford! Han Solo is one of my favorite characters. And The Force Awakens is my favorite version of the character, old Ford has a little something that is extra special! So this figure really needed to be the best it could be!
As for the clothes, they used great fabric for it. The jacket doesn’t look like real leather (obviously) but they gave it a visual aspect that looks like it, it’s well done! They stuffed his white shirt to make it look like he had the weight of an old man, he’s not in his twenties anymore! The snow jacket can be a bit tricky to put on but once it’s on, it’s really beautiful to look at! I appreciate they included both outfits, it’s so good!
The incredible Sixth Scale Han Solo figure by Hot Toys does not disappoint. It’s easily the best Han Solo figure I’ve seen, no contest!
