May the Force be with you!
Hasbro has released the most incredible version of Han Solo that they will likely never be able to beat…. ever. The “Vintage” Original Trilogy Collection Han Solo action figure is breathtaking, stunning, gorgeous, brilliant, and about a thousand other positive adjectives that don’t readily come to our minds. Han Solo is action figure making at its very best. There isn’t one little bit of room at all where we can find fault with the action figure. If Hasbro were to develop all future Star wars action figures with this miraculous quality, we probably wouldn’t whine as much as we do. Super-articulated, wonderfully painted and simply accessorized, Han Solo is a true testament that Hasbro insisted on holding nothing back when creating most of the figures in this premium collector-focused line. Although, the VOTC Han Solo action figure will be a very hard one to top. We don’t expect to see this amount of quality in every future action figure, although it would be very nice. You can forget about all of your other Episode IV Han Solo action figures. This one is king and will remain so as far as we can see. We would ultimately like to assert that Hasbro will never be able to perfect it. It’s that good.
Han Solo comes with 14 points of articulation. This is obviously the standard we expect anymore. But Han Solo has been given premium ball-jointed articulation in all of the parts that really matter. This includes ball-jointed elbows, knees and ankles to assist the collector with attaining as many unique poses as possible. Ball-jointed articulation actually has the propensity for creating an infinite array of posing options, so expect Han Solo to do whatever you ask him. While he doesn’t come with ball-jointed hips like the Luke Skywalker action figure, he does come with a great deal more flexibility than a standard action figure with swivel hips. We believe the angle that they were cut allows Han Solo a little more give and wiggle room to acquire a few extra positions that an action figure with a more straight cut wouldn’t be able to achieve. For this we are extremely thankful and do not take this offering so lightly. What’s more, Han Solo has a build a portrait that captures every last nuance of his character unmatched. The VOTC Han Solo is undeniably one of the greatest action figures Hasbro has produced. And we believe it will hold the title as a top ranking Star Wars action figures indefinitely.
