I just got the Han Solo brown coat variation and I was wondering if anyone else has found one and are they becoming more common. Just taking a quick scan around the boards...

I finally found one the start of the week, at Target. Along side Luke: Jedi, R1-G4, and R2-D2: Bartender. Nice figure, and the color is great. Is the fur on your hood a lot better painted on the brown one also? On the blue one it's mainly white and tan. and very muted. But on the brown one, the white, tan, and yellow are more visable. Maybe the earlier blue ones, just arn't painted as well. :)

I don't have him in hand yet, but a friend of mine in Orange County, CA, picked me up one at a Target a week ago.

I found one at Target about a month ago on clearance for $2.38 (score!).

I haven't compared him to the blue version yet, so I'm not sure about the paint differences. I'll have to check it out later!

Yeah... I kinda noticed that right off the bat, actually. There was much more paint on it and the fur seemed to have a darker colour...

I found a brown coat at KB toys a week of two before Christmas. I haven't seen one since. I compared the colors and on mine the face on the brow coat is better than the face of my blue coat.

I had to compare them though, while I was in KB I really couldn't be sure that I had found the brown coat or if it was a blue coat that looked stange under the lights. :confused:

I found one about two weeks before Christmas. I was at Walmart in Old Bridge NJ when a stock person was unpacking a new box of figures. The box contained the new Hoth Assortment of Luke, Han, Trooper, R-3PO and Imperial Hoth Trooper. The Han I found was packaged on the new Gpld Cards. I guessing that the brown version comes with that assortment. :)

Found one at KB about 2 days ago, they had about 4 and all were brown. I'm really not into variations but I would've rather had found a blue coat one cause it looks better alongside the POTJ Bespin Han, but I guess I can't complain since any new figures I find at my side of the woods are a good, scarce thing.

I also found mine a few weeks before Christmas. There were 4 on the shelves. I think I found him in a wave of previously released figs.

I found one here at Wal-Mart a couple weeks ago, which in itself was miraculous as I've not found anything there more recent than Clone Tropper pilots in a ages. Unlike others on this thread, I found that my blue coat Han had a much better face painting job. My brown coat Han makes Dr. Evazon look handsome in comparison.

Found one a couple of weeks ago at a WM Super Center. The card and bubble are mint but there is an odd mark on the card inside the bubble. It's a small green line that looks like it may have come from a pen or marker. I don't know how that could happen but it's there.

I don't have him yet, but his status is officially "pending". With any luck that will change to "shipped" very shortly, and I'll be able to add him to my shelf shortly after that. Glad to hear quite a few people are happy with him, the blue one is one of my favorites from 2003.

I always seem to find the figures I want but they are usually on a bad card. :(

Found one at Target Duarte, face paint is a little sloppy and the card is slightly bent.

I found 2 Hoth Han Brown Coats in Amarillo on Saturday at Target. I only purchased one because both Hans had damaged cards. I'm a mostly a Loose Collector, so it didn't bother me to purchase a damaged carded fig. Oh well, too bad none were mint as I coulda bought a second and traded one of you for a Blue Coat Han (I'm more of a Blue Coat Han kinda guy).

I don't have a blue coat or a brown coat version yet...mine looks black!!...glossy paint on the top half of the body, and the arms and bottom of the coat are plain matt, they don't look like they have been painted at all!!

I've got one I don't need. The card's not mint, but it's not too bad. I trade on RS and have feedback there under "Sgt Ook".

Found mine in my Kebco box this afternoon. It's wicked. :cool:

Nice to be one of the gang again, I was beginning to feel left out! :D

I found four of them at TRU in Woodbridge, NJ today. Only bought one, and left the rest. Looks like these aren't gonna be all that rare after all.

Of course since the coat was brown, that would be unfair. ;) :D

Out of all the Star Wars figures I've seen lately, the only place I've seen the gold stripe repacks was at target, including Brown coat Han. They seem to be the only ones who ordered them around here. It's weird.

I passed on the Brown Han (Gold stripe) today at Wal-Mart, and unfortunately this figure is part of a case that is nothing but rehashes. It consisting of Brown coat Han, Snowtrooper, Luke (Throne Room), Darth (Throne Room), Yoda and Chian, Aayla, Barris Offee, Boba, Anakin Secret Ceremony, and Ashla and Jempa. It's too bad this figure was not circulated with newer assortments like the Bossk, Rappertunie wave so that the shelves did not get cloged with last years figures. Oh well, it will just make it harder for folks to get new figs in stores!

Kidhuman

Considering so many people missed alot of those figs last year with the distribution problems, they have been flying out of the stores around here. Snowtroopers are a great army builder. Plus it is also packed with core characters that kids and all people like. Barriss would be the only pegwarmer I would see. Plus you have completeists who will buy them because of the new cards and all.

I've got my Brown one cracked, and on display beside Blue. Brown has mask on with pistol in hand, Blue has mask off holding the saber. They make a lovely couple...... :D

This is my 2003 figure of the year (for appearance anyway - I'm not wild about the wide stance or the distraction feature - but just standing there, they look amazing).

Thanks for the link. I'm still rebuilding my collection, so I picked up the $6.99 each C3PO and Yoda Deluxe figures.

Now if they'd get some Red Arcs and SA Clones, we'd be set:crazed: .

Lately, it's been hanging around in our stores more often. I didn't buy this brown coat version since I already have the dark blue one. After all, I have 2 Hoth gear Hans from the early POTF2 w/ the brown jackets. This one with blue coat is good enough to complement the first two. :)
