Han Solo [1995, POTF2]

...With Heavy Assault Rifle and Blaster!

Can you feel it? That's Han! So pumped out now he makes cracks in the concrete when he strides! Do you see it? That's his pimped out blaster rifle! Never saw it before? Well see it now!

When Kenner reintroduced the Star Wars line, they made Han and Luke especially, shall we say, pumped? Also, Kenner decided to include a little extra non-canon weaponry. Why? To appeal to a generation of He-Man and G.I. Joe types, seemingly oblivious to the fact that nostalgia alone would make many people buy these again.

Han has a bio card that is fairly limited to Episode IV information, but that was probably how Lucasfilm wanted it for now.

Five reasons to get this figure:

1. Watch Han smash! Puny human tremble!

2. New Han can finally go hand-to-hand in a Chewy arm wrestling match.

3. New Han doesn't fly the Falcon. He throws it into space and jumps on!

4. Extra blaster is compensatory measure.

5. Bulging chest - oh my! Tight pants - oh my stars! (swoons)


Many, many Star Wars books, comics, movies have covered Han well, but to get his full story just read his lengthy Wookiepedia entry.

#6 in the POTF2 line
