I figured I'd toss it up so we can comment on it. From the way the arm joints look, to the detail on the legs and body, it appears that the figure is indeed not a total rehash like they report. It's likely retooled so the folds arn't exactly the same. The helmet looks a bit big and funky. But it's not that bad of a figure. I'm more excited for the General Madine and General Lando though. Sorry about the new thread, but I knew most people might miss it in the other. :)

Ok, extremely close comparison points to the fact that the left 'comlink' arm is all new except for the glove. Since they had to make it so it could get to in front of his face. Hopefully they include the comlink as well. The legs also appear to be new, or atleast heavily modified. Due to the fact that the wrinkles are quite different. The main body and right arm appear to be the same. I do like the addition of the antenna on the helmet, even if the helmet is sorta big. :)

Interesting, I guess we really don't know for sure if Han was fully in the suit or not. Would that be correct? I do love the fact that the helmet is removable!! Simple and easy to make for hasbro. Oh well I guess we will have to wait for another Endor Han with Trench coat.

It appears that he did, since he looks like he's wearing the gloves as well. But you can't really see any evidence of the uniform. I heard you can see a bit of the collar, but in the only photo I've seen, I don't see it. And I don't feel like digging out the Laserdiscs. But there was plenty of time for Han to ditch the uniform, gloves, and helmet. Since the movies don't take place in real time. It would have taken sometime for the Squads that are sent out to round up the rebels to prep and go to the Bunker's back door. I'm gonna guess that he did. After all, if the Imperial's moniter would have seen his shirt of vest, the entire ruse would have been for nothing. :)

This figure is okay. He looks a little weird, mainly because of the helmet, but still a nice figure. I too hope for a Han with Trenchcoat to come out soon (heck, with all the Lukes planned this year, we could see him again sometime this year) and hope that it is a Soft Goods coat as I dont really think I will buy the Han Endor figure with the Explosive Charges that came out in '02 because his vest is a little too blueish if you ask me (should it be fully black?).

Jar Jar BinksSounds good, I do have to give Hasbro credit for doing this one. Who knows, we might get the Ice Cream Guy sometime, if they keep this up.

Well, the face looks good, so that is always a plus; as for the helmet not fitting, well, it really wasn't Hans to start so Hasbro is trying to be realistic, yeah....that's it. This does look better overall than I was expecting, but this is a pretty oddball fig.

Better than I thought! I think the helmet looks pretty good. This figure would be very nicely complimented by an Endor Soldier in Biker Scout disguise, no?

I, for one, am still convinced that Han only donned the AT-ST driver's helmet and gloves, not the whole uniform. There wouldn't have been any need to put on the full uniform just to make a quick vid-screen communication! But, as there doesn't appear to be any way to prove or disprove it, what the heck! Looks pretty good, and the removable helmet is a plus. Saw this pic yesterday when my issue of Insider #73 arrived in the mail.

It looks like it would make a good army building figure at any rate. I'll buy it :rolleyes:

Pretty nice figure,with a basic sculpt to rip off his head and place a few more around on the Imperial Side.I am still waiting for a new Han with Trench Coat as well,but no complaints!Suprised Hasbro made this.

Agreed with the Suprise. I've seen it on a couple wishlists over the years. And it's usually classed in the 'Yeah, they could. But I doubt they ever would' catagory. It is impressive that Hasbro did try to deliver a main character in a outfit never before done. Now we need Lando: Smuggler Attire and Luke: Medical Robes. :)

I agree. It looks a lot better than expected. The helmet may be a little big, but is nothing compared to the size of those goggles! I think the Wampa could probably wear those to prevent snowblindness.

I can't really see Han putting on the pants and boots for what he needed the uniform for. But it would be a pretty weird looking figure if it was a regular Han from the waist down with the Imperial tunic only pulled down to his chest and probably not even fastened all the way.

Yes I am surprised as well and this gives hope for those other miniscule characters who have not yet been made. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!
