Too bad it's on a GIJoe....

Anyone know if this was "borrowed" from the Star Wars line? I don't feel like comparing it to all the bazillion Hans I have, and the nearly twice that many I don't.

The hair leads me to believe that it's not a direct copy, but damn, that's freaky.

That is just crazy. I hope hasbro is reading this right now.

That head would've looked good on one of the KotCS Indy's we got last year (with darker hair of course).

It didn't really look like Han to me at first glance. I tried covering up the hair, and that worked a bit better, but perhaps it looked more like Indy than Han.

It could be made into an older (NJO-era) Han Solo.

They need to make the hero figures from that era anyway:

Han in his 50's and Luke and Leia in their 40's.

It definitely looks like Indy from the Last Crusade, but the face is just not young enough for Han Solo.

I can't see it. maybe it's my eyes but even covering the blonde hair I still don't see Harrison Ford likeness....

That definitely looks like an older Harrison Ford to me. Freaky. I think I'll grab that for a NJO scene with the twins and that Luke from the Evolutions set.

I'm afraid this is the best I can get with our camera. It's pretty high-end, but the disadvantage is that the "camera-challenged" (like myself) have trouble focusing on small objects up close.

From the front, it is a good likeness of Ford from his '90s films, like Air Force One or The Fugitive, but I wouldn't recognize it as a Han Solo or Indy.

From the side, it doesn't look like him, which is so weird.

This is easily the least-Cobra-looking guy I've ever seen.

Harrison Ford from Air Force One is still way closer to Han Solo than Hasbro has gotten, well, ever.

As for "least Cobra-looking," have you seen the Fred figure (http://www.yojoe.com/action/08/images/crimsonguard10_large.shtml)? Admittedly, it is based on an actual character (characters, actually) who are supposed to look unassuming, but, still....

I had not seen Fred, but yeah, like you said, based on a real guy (or a real series of guy).
