Alright, that does it! As if the holograms weren't bad enough for variant hunters and completeists, there are six different numbered force pike variations.

Check it out (http://www.rebelscum.com/story/front/Photo_Archives_Update_Han_Solo_Force_Pike_Variatio ns_96609.asp)

Thank God I've been cured of my completist affliction!

Goodbye Hasbro. Hello Sideshow!

Who really cares if the force pike ha a different number one it? I am a completist but I dont go for stupid things like number variations. I mainly go for the color variations, you know the ones that are actually noticeable. I feel bad for anyone who feels the need to get these.:(

Yea....Hasbro can kiss my a** if they think I would buy 6 Han's because of a force pike variation.

Imagine the poor sap who has to have each numbe and with each holo combination. That's 36 figs...of JUST Han/Carbonite.

If theres a single person out there who will actually hunt for all these variations I'd be truly surprised. I don't think theres ANYONE that's that obsessed.

What is the reasoning in having the different numbers?

I can understand paint or packaging changes but the pike number?
Is this even film related or just production related?

Sorry but this has me completely baffled! (thats not even mentioning the ppl who will actually be looking for them all)

This is just some sort of crazy numbering system. My force pike has the number 4 on it with a 52791 date stamp.

Besides Chuck Norris will never die. He'll just go into eternal hiding.

Sorry but this has me completely baffled! (thats not even mentioning the ppl who will actually be looking for them all)It's likely that the mold for the pike has 6 cavities, and the mold-maker was a doofus that day and numbered each cavity.

I believe we need to investigate this issue more closely. In order to do that, someone will need to go and actually look at the mold to determine if this is correct. I think SSG should send a representative to Hasbro to do a cavity search.

A friend of mine said that he saw a Han Solo carbonite that looked like the old one from POTF2. He said it was the old buff Han and the Carbonite block was not red. Is this an error or some sort of freak thing or variant?

People have been doing it for years. Some people dont like the fact that their old figure was redone and they have to buy an updated one, so they keep the better of the two and return it. There are many threads on this through out the entire SW communinty.
