Limited edition figure
Despite its staggering popularity the original Han Solo
action figure looked like the result of a liaison between the two Noels, Fielding and Gallagher. But forget minor details because the bigger (or should that be smaller?) problem was that he was only 3 ¾” tall. So thank goodness Kenner have finally seen sense and created the awesome Han Solo Vintage Kenner Action Figure
Modelled on the first ever Han Solo action figure from 1978
, this roguishly evocative, limited edition
plaything stands a far more satisfying 12” tall and has been made using digital scans of the classic figure. It can’t pull Princess Leia or dish out smarty-pants one-liners but at least it replicates the original figure’s inexplicably Beatle-ish barnet. It even features a handy looking blaster, just like the original.
It’s not all about the cocky Corellian smuggler though, because Captain Solo’s replica 70s packaging
boasts original artwork/photos and a resealable plastic clamshell that allows you to display him in all his swaggering, retro-boxed glory. Now let’s blow this thing and go home!
