Default Best 3.75" Han Solo

Looking at the Endor outfit Vintage Collection figure I see these scrawny legs and terrible waist. Why isn't there a better Han Solo figure? Or did I miss one?

Which is the best realistic figure out there. Or if you have to make one, what parts do you use?

Because Hasbro makes a habit of half-stepping. I don't think any Han Solo has ball hips (yet). If I were to make a tier 1 HS custom I'd be looking into swapping a Joe pelvis on to something like the VOTC Han upper torso.

Hinged wrist hands, too.

Hasbro reminds me of Liefeld. Starts with the head and some upper body, satisfied and just says fuck it with the rest.

That's........a pretty fitting analogy, actually. I don't know how he still gets away with it. 25 goddamn years he's been drawing like shit.

The Bespin Han Solo from the vintage collection has ball hips an all around pretty good figure , but agreed they always seem to miss the mark with Han Solo figures.

I wpd probably use the right upper leg from a 25th cobra commander the left upper leg from a 25th shipwreck and the lower legs from a 25th crimson guard or resolute cobra commander ( or similar) . I don't think you will find any one figure with legs that will work.

I like the torso from the Han on far right in pic. The arms unfortunately have that angle slice swivel. Someday I'll get another set of arms and a better head for him.

Damn, didn't Lando get the new hip treatment? I don't understand why clone troopers get the hip treatment, and a lot of the other characters get shafted. They're $10, they're suppose to be premium quality at that price, and Hasbro predictably half-asses it. It's the biggest franchise they have license to and even today they're still screwing up. Is anyone else getting the idea that the folks who work on these figures don't care anymore?

I'm thinking about casting my own. Once I get good at casting. Body parts should be easy enough

Which head is the best though?

The latest 5POA figures have the best actor likeness IMO. Unless there's an Indiana Jones figure out there with a better one?



They don't have ball jointed heads tho. On these I'd dip the figure,and dunk only the head in mold maker. after you fill the mold you can dremel out the cast to fit whatever. Another issue you may encounter is SW parts are tiny compared to joes. If you want to make SW figures using joe parts? you may wanna upsize the sculpts or shrink from the 6" line.

Still waiting on them to release that 6" Han in carbonite as a non exclusive figure/set.
