Han Solo in Carbonite [1995, POTF2]

...with Carbonite Freezing Chamber!

Well, technically, it's more of a storage unit. The actual freezing chamber was in Cloud City, but let's not get into semantics.

Carbonite Han, or CH as his friends call him, is a much better than the vintage figure (no thick neck), but still a little muscular. He comes with the aforementioned freezing chamber, and a blaster that he used in the escape from Jabba's barge (think, oh, the one he shot the Sarlacc tentacle with).

Five reasons to get this figure:

1. Commemorate Han's idleness!

2. The best accessory to Slave I you will ever get.

3. Puts out thoughts of the vintage ol' thick-neck.

4. Mascot for the blind - still manages to stage a breakout.

5. What they give out at the anniversary to Han's visit to Tattooine (they don't get many celebrities).


His backstory is very long and comes from many sources: his Wookiepedia entry.

#8 in the POTF2 line

Ah, FAO - they still have the FAO talking tree from the Mall of America - but it is now in the Rainforest Cafe in Mall of America. Repurposing!
