"I'll take a good fight any day over all this hidin' and freezin'!"

From Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, relive your favorite moments leading up to the Battle of Hoth with the Sideshow Collectibles Captain Han Solo - Hoth Sixth Scale Figure.

On the run and with a price on his head, the intergalactic smuggler Han Solo joins the Rebel Alliance at their remote secret location on Hoth, Echo Base. Dressed for the planet's notorious sub-zero climate, Solo is fitted in an authentically replicated blue quilted parka, complete with rank insignia and fur-trimmed hood. Two scarves, a cap and goggles frame the lifelike portrait which perfectly captures actor Harrison Ford in the role that made him a star - and for additional display options, swap in the portrait without headgear, depicting Han as he appears inside the base.

Though hiding and freezing on the wretched ice cube doesn't sit well with the smuggler's disposition, when Rebel Commander Luke Skywalker goes missing during a routine patrol, Solo has no choice but to leap onto the back of an ill-fated tauntaun and go out after him. Fully equipped with a blaster pistol, macrobinoculars, droid caller, and portable life scanner, he's willing to risk everything on a rescue mission to find his friend and save the day.

Sideshow Collectibles fell for something we were certain they never would. And that was add to the debate of whether or not Han Solo’s parka in The Empire Strikes Back is brown or blue. This age-old debate has become a big part of the hobby of collecting Star Wars. While all of us should know well that the actual prop is brown (from the many The Magic & The Myth exhibitions and other documented resources) by now, there is no denying at all that the coat still looks blue in many sequences in the film. We liken this debate to the scene in Liar Liar starring Jim Carrey when he tries to lie and say the pen is red. You may not see the direct correlation here, but the internal struggle he had with not accepting the pen was blue is about the same way fans of Episode V see this debate on the color of Han’s parka. There are some people that won't see the truth. Some don’t understand why other see it as blue and the converse is true too. It's an endless debate. Clearly we’ve gone on too long already about this nonsense. The point is really moot. To satiate both camps of this “silly” argument, Sideshow Collectibles graciously pacifies both preferences by creating two Captain Han Solo (Hoth) 1:6 Scale Figures and we have to say that both are looking quite fantastic. Both version have corresponding Sideshow Exclusives, but all units of the Captain Han Solo (Hoth) [Blue Jacket Version] are only available at Sideshow Collectibles. There is no regular edition available. If you want the novelty blue jacket, they’re your only option.

Captain Han Solo (Hoth) [Blue Jacket Version] is another brilliantly amazing 1:6 Scale Figure. We are so pleased with how Sideshow has elevated their quality standards to produce high-end collectibles that compete neck and neck with so many other longer-established companies. Let’s be clear. Sideshow Collectibles has their own unique niche. But between the enhanced portraits, the fitted costumes and the perfectly accompanying accessories in the last few years, Sideshow is clearly on a mission to engage Star Wars fans like never before and we think they’re doing a fabulous job. We honestly have to express that Captain Han Solo (Hoth) [Blue Jacket Version] is another step above even some of the most recent 1:6 Scale Figures they’ve released. Han Solo’s quilted parka is of course bulky, but it is also streamlined and fits the Prometheus body beautifully. It is then accented with a replica belt and holster as well as cold weather accents like multiple scarves and undershirt. His pants are equally fitted and their new “two part” boots, while sculpted, look true to life and finish off the character wonderfully. Captain Han Solo (Hoth) [Blue Jacket Version] is a pleasure from top to bottom and it has more than been worth the wait to see him finally released. Sideshow doesn’t even load us up with too many interchangeable hands. Just the right amount are included and their equally utilitarian as they are well designed. Everything is here for a reason. There is nothing wasted. That’s what we like to see.

Sideshow Collectibles included a droid caller which perfectly attaches to Captain Han Solo (Hoth) [Blue Jacket Version]‘s belt. It honestly couldn’t be a better fit. We think that the holster isn’t perfect, but it is able to accommodate the DL-44 blaster (with silver tip). Perhaps the most impressive accessory included here is the life scanner. Sideshow Collectibles actually included four separate attachments for it in this release. This means that you can have both antenna in a retracted position, or both antennae in an extended fashion. And if you march to the beat of your own drum you could probably set up one of each to be different if you so choose. The life scanner itself is just beautiful. No detail was left out. These accessories are such an impressive work of art, it helps to explain why these figures have approached the $200 MSRP now. Just like Commander Luke Skywalker (Hoth), Captain Han Solo (Hoth) [Blue Jacket Version] comes with binoculars that have a real leather strap. They look equally good here. Also included is an interchangeable portrait of a “plain” Han Solo head without any head gear at all. It’s a little bit boring, but it’s a nice option to have. You’ll certainly be more preoccupied with the head sculpt wearing the cap. This attachment also has goggled which can either rest on the brim of the cap or be worn over the eyes when outside in the icy tundra of Hoth. Captain Han Solo (Hoth) [Blue Jacket Version] is certainly a novelty 1:6 Scale Figure, but we love it. We’re glad Sideshow has the collectors at heart.
