acorrding to sirsteve on the home page, the han solo with the white droid caller was only produced 2 weeks before they changed it to silver. it also said it could be just as rare as bloody luke! good news for us!

hope you guys have it to!

It's possible it'll be rare, but I was at a collectable show 2 weeks ago and there was a guy selling them for $8 or $10 and he didn't sell out of either the silver or white droid caller variation. I agree that these should be rare and more valuble, but I guess only time will tell.

I've seen way more of the Han w/ white droid caller than I ever saw of the bloody Lukes. Oh well, I have both of those (albeit not carded) so I'm cool. Though I don't care about variations anyway. I have to say though, the bloody Luke variation is much more interesting than the lame droid caller one.

It's an error, the gray is the movie-correct version. They released what they had made already, which is why the white-caller is only 1X in the second Mace/Jango/Luke/Vader assortment.

But I suppose it was easier to fix a plastic color than fix the horrible face sculpt and paint job - the main reason I've passed on many Hans already.


Being less common isn't a selling point for me.

Oh yeah. I guess technically it's an error, not really a variation.

Hey Lord Tenebrous, right now you have 999 posts. Cool. :D

well, nice to have the White lever BUT, the date codes over 21001 are pretty common... Those were made later. The date codes which were under that such as *20851* has a bubble variation on the white and its extremely hard to find. I'll post a picture when i get home from work...

The time i got my White lever han solo i got it in the assortment with 1 HAn solo and no chews, or obi's. I got the han before a lot them were shipping so i must of been lucky by getting the earlier date code. Now they are shipping 1 per box in the Chew, and Obi wave. I guess those date codes are 21051 with the white lever or 21091 with the grey lever. If you happen to have *20951 or even earlier (VERY RARE 20851)* you have the Han solo that was in the first shipments.

The Han I picked up today was coded 21051 with the white lever. He came packed TWO pre case along with TWO Obi-Wans and TWO Chewies. The reason why I know this is that the NICE:D :D toy manager at my local Wal-Mart opened up a brand new fresh case for this 30ish collector. HH:) :)

Han Comparison 1 White lever : Earlier date code *20851* (rare) on Left, Later date code on right *21051* (common)

The Bubble line inside stops on Hanís right hand in the earlier version. The Bubble line keeps going on the later version.

Han Comparison 2: Earlier date code *20851* (rare) on Left, Later date code on right *21051* (common)

Both white lever versions from far away:

For those of you who have the common version, thats nice.... For those of you who have the datecode *20851*, this early date code is the one which is just as hard to find as the Bloody luke! :) Happy Hunting! (pictures above are mine) Download them and show all your collecting buddies!

I don't see how you variation hunters maintain your sanity...I get frustrated enough just trying to find the figures I want, let alone all those variations and minute differences.

Between releases, I like to let my bank account recover a little bit from my SW spending frenzies. :) I could never afford to be a variation guy. Or even a "one to open, one to leave on the card" guy.

Actually, I maintain my sanity, because im a collector :D ! it gives me something to look for when there is nothing left to find! My WAL-MART gets everything so its too easy just to find the "htf figures", i guess its more of a challenge yet a lot more money to find the rare variations and the errors! BLoody Luke, Vader and his begging for money hand (FLAT) or finding those background figures especially geonosian warriors, dexter jettsters, plo kloon, Battle Droid, and r2-d2. The Padme with mole was a pretty cool variant too. I guess it brings Star Wars collecting more excitement for those who already have all the figures but who want to go to the next level (as well as spend A LOT more money :eek:). But if you can afford it, it doesn't hurt to hunt for variations, its more fun to hunt! :D

Well, I'm not as fortunate as others to live in a place where new figures are released near actuall release dates. I have a difficult time searching for new figures and usually end up purchasing them online. But if you can hunt for variations, that's cool and I respect you.

I don't see the big deal of White/Grey Droid caller variants, the Han figure isn't anything to write Corellia about.

Interesting, looks like I've got the white lever too. I didn't even realize it till I saw this thread.

Neat!

Would any of this stuff be rare if nobody said anything about it?

Has anybody considered the fact that if nobody knew about the variation then it's not rare. You guys make it valuable because you say it is.

It seems the Silver Han is more rare in my area. Everywhere I go I see the White Han.

I'm seeing the white callers all over the place. It seems as if they're still producing them or something. Perhaps I should go and get the "rare" silver caller to add to my collection.
