So, SS showed off more pics of the piece and it looks really cool! Except for the overdone carbonite detailing. They captured the look on the 1:6 scale version, but for some reason chose to put Han in a carbonite jacuzzi this time.

The lighting looks great though, especially the "thawing" appearance. I'm most impressed that they not only duplicated the hero/life-scan panel for the top right side, which they missed on the 1:6 version, but they even have it lighting up.

Thoughts?

I really want this. But as much as I do, a 1:1 full scale Carbonite Han is my Holy Grail. So I must pass in hopes and I am able to acquire and Illusive Concepts piece or that someone makes a new one.

Wow Basker, you are not kidding about the over-the-top nature of the carbonite ripples! Compare to this image on Wookieepedia: http://images.wikia.com/starwars/images/3/34/Hansicle-TSWA.jpg

(I also don't think the mouth is quite accurate, and there's something wrong with the right eye, but those could be about angle.)

I do like the light up effect a lot, but for the price, it should be an exact replica, not an artist's interpretation. If it was $100, I could understand it, but at $300 for a figure with no clothes or separate pieces, just a block with lights, it needs to be perfection. That said, I am still tempted. :p
