For 14 years I've posted on this site how I wanted Jaina and Jacen Solo action figures - how the story of Star Wars must continue beyond the movies I can sometimes grow tired of.

Now I've been able to use the new Expanded Universe wave to create the pics below.

A rebellious Jacen confronts his Jedi Master Uncle Luke and his father Han Solo.

Jaina appears with her mother Princess Leia, taking on their training to become Jedi Knights of the New Republic.

This is my first modern-era Millennium Falcon I used to display my first modern collection Star Wars figures in. They've since relocated to my BMF because the recorded dialogue for that ship was specifically tied in with ANH. But from nostalgia, I love my 1995 Falcon and put it to good use here, doing something I always wanted to do! :thumbsup:

Wow, your photos really point out how terrible that EU Leia figure is. I'm really hoping they some day get around to a remake of the old EU Jedi Leia and an older Han Solo as well.

Congrats on being able to enjoy something you've looked forward to for so long. If only they could hurry up and get us Anakin too.

I must ask, Where did the Han Solo come from? Is he a custom?

I'm thinking it is an Indiana Jones figure.

Thanks for the compliments on my pictures.

Yes. That's Indy from KOTCS.

It's not qualified to be a custom, but it is a head sculpt of Harrison Ford in his 50's by Hasbro.

Han was 33 in ROTJ (Harrison was probably a little older when he played him at 33).

After 20 years post-ROTJ in the EU, I'd have Han change his clothes from the 4 or 5 styles we have movie figures of him sporting.

He is illustrated wearing all black after Chewbacca's death, but my scene could be before or after. Chewie could be still alive and just flying the Falcon during this particular moment. Anakin Solo could be back at the Jedi Academy on Yavin IV (before the Vong invasion of that world) and training with Kam Solasar.

I don't think Leia ever got a decent EU figure. I think it's about time she gets one.

I like the Luke figure (which comes with the Evolutions: Jedi Legacy pack) although I changed the right hand with the black-gloved hand of Death Star 2 Luke. I know they must have fixed the skin of his bionic hand somewhere after the Battle of Endor but I somehow think that the gloved hand suits Luke better. But I kept the original hand anyways.

Oh and speaking of EU, they really should release an older Jaina figure and a Darth Caedus figure. They seem to wait too long before they make figures.
