This New Han Solo Figure From Hot Toys Is The Next Best Thing To Meeting Harrison Ford In Person
Harrison Ford is a legend. He's the man responsible for bringing both Han Solo and Indiana Jones to life. Woman want him and men want to be him, and no doubt more than a few fans would pay a hefty sum of money to be able to meet the iconic actor in person.
But if you can't meet the man in the flesh, you can always settle for the best next thing: this Hot Toys Han Solo figure. In true Hot Toys fashion, this new figure based on Harrison Ford's Han Solo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens is about as realistic and as detailed as a figure can be. Better yet, Solo's wingman Chewbacca is also getting the Hot Toys treatment, and the loyal Wookie has never looked better.
Each figure is 1/6th scale and comes with a number of accessories. Solo comes with two jackets: the leather one he wears for most of the film and the winter outfit he sports shortly before his unfortunate run-in with his son, Kylo Ren. He also comes with his signature blaster pistol.
Chewie also has plenty of toys to play with. Of course his Wookie Bow Caster is included, but the set also includes a number of thermal detonators and numerous different hands for both Chewie and Han, so buyers can pose the figures however they want. Chewie's mouth can even be posed, so owners can have the character look as if he's in mid-roar.
Both figures sport brand-new face and hand sculpts, and the detail on each figure is absurd. The two characters look as real as can be, the spitting image of their on-film counterparts.
Figures this nice don't come cheap, however. Though exact pricing has yet to be revealed, ComicBook.com reports that the original trilogy version of the dynamic Star Wars duo cost $479.99. This new The Force Awakens set is likely to be around the same price, if not more. Still, a sum of around $500 is a small price to pay to have a miniature Harrison Ford in your hands.
