My, my my, the sculpt of Han Solo. Well, first off, Star Wars figures have
evolved so much from the days of POTF2's He-Man Buff style. Han looks just
like he did in the Endor Bunker scenes of ROTJ. This is the first Han
figure that Hasbro used the Face scanning technique on, so this Han
actually has a stunning likeness resembling Harrison Ford.
Han Solo (Endor Raid) has 7 points of articulation (Neck,
Shoulders, right bicep, waist, and hips). His action feature kind of gets
in the way of his waist and right shoulder articulation, though. Overall,
not that bad of articulation.
The particular figure that I own has some pretty good paint
application. Not a single splotch of paint. The only complaint I have in
this area is his vest. In the film, his vest has always been black. On
this figure, his vest is blue. This just doesn't sit right with me.
Han Solo comes with two suction cup Grenades and his trademarked
blaster pistol. I tried out the Grenades and they stick to a surface
rather well. His blaster pistol is smaller than POTF2 blasters, which I
think is pretty good.
The dreaded 2002 Saga Action Features strike again on Han Solo
(Endor Raid). Lots of people overlook this Han figure because of his
Action Feature. I did myself, for the longest time. I finally gave in and
bought this figure and realized that his action feature works very well.
There is a white button on the left side of his waist that you push down
and he turns to draw his blaster. The white button doesn't look that bad
when you think about it. That is because it is in the shape of a peg that
has always been on past Han Solo figures' belts. I like this action
feature a lot. Also, I experienced a bit of Nostalgia from this figure due
to this Action feature. If you've ever played Super ROTJ for the Super
Nintendo, you would know that when you play as Han Solo, he has a special
feature where you can throw grenades at enemies. Well, this figure rotates
when doing his Action Feature pretty much the same way that Han does in
the SNES game when throwing grenades. If you put one of Han's accessories
in his hand enough to where its loose but can still stay in his hand, when
you push the button, he can throw the grenade JUST like he did the the
Overall, I love this
figure. He comes with a working Holster to place his blaster pistol in
when it is not in use. Working Holsters have always been very cool looking
and are done rather well. I'm giving this figure a high score for the
great sculpt and the Nostalgic Action Feature. I can't bring myself to
give it a perfect score (A+) though, because the Bluish Vest bothers me
