If you pre-ordered the international exclusive The Black Series [Phase III] Han Solo/Princess Leia Organa set, they’re beginning to arrive from Entertainment Earth. We have a sneak peek gallery for you to check out now. Han Solo is a dramatic improvement from the one offered in the Deluxe set with Tauntau years ago. We’re not crazy about the furry collar. It looks fantastic, but it’s woven bizarrely and doesn’t stay in place. Also, it functions beautifully as a hood, but it is shaped like a ring, so there is no covering for the back of his head. So it renders it useless. The head sculpt is reused from the Han Solo (Bespin) figure, and he looks great in brown. Princess Leia Organa is a slight repaint of the Princess Leia (Hoth) basic figure. It’s a shame Hasbro didn’t include any other newness with her to make this set unique. Oh, and Han Solo wasn’t wearing this outfit in the scene they’re attempting to recreate here. Also, it’s inconsequential, but the bio on Han Solo reads very awkwardly. Like, it made us uncomfortable in spots. But whatever. Hasbro did an excellent job on this set, and it only has a few issues that won’t detract from its greatness too much. The review is coming soon, and after it, we jump into the final vintage Kenner reviews!
