Sideshow Collectibles' has me all warm and fuzzy with its #StarWars Captain #HanSolo Hoth figure

Sideshow Toys Captain Han Solo Hoth on TaunTaunI’d like to consider I have solid resolve on figures. Much as I want to, I won’t pull the trigger on buying the still elusive Hot Toys Hawkeye figure, which regularly sells for over $600 on eBay, but Sideshow Collectibles has found my figure Kryptonite. Yep, more shots of their “Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back” Hoth set. And this one features everyone’s favorite scoundrel. From Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, relive your favorite moments leading up to the Battle of Hoth with the Sideshow Collectibles Captain Han Solo – Hoth Sixth Scale Figure.Sideshow Toys Captain Han Solo Hoth with binoculars tight

On the run and with a price on his head, the intergalactic smuggler Han Solo joins the Rebel Alliance at their remote secret location on Hoth, Echo Base. Dressed for the planet’s notorious sub-zero climate, Solo is fitted in an authentically replicated blue quilted parka, complete with rank insignia and fur-trimmed hood. Two scarves, a cap and goggles frame the lifelike portrait which perfectly captures actor Harrison Ford in the role that made him a star – and for additional display options, swap in the portrait without headgear, depicting Han as he appears inside the base.

Though hiding and freezing on the wretched ice cube doesn’t sit well with the smuggler’s disposition, when Rebel Commander Luke Skywalker goes missing during a routine patrol, Solo has no choice but to leap onto the back of an ill-fated Tauntaun and go out after him. Fully equipped with a blaster pistol, macrobinoculars, droid caller, and portable life scanner, he’s willing to risk everything on a rescue mission to find his friend and save the day.

Of my prolonged birthday figure openings, all that’s left is the Hot Toys Bespin Luke and I’m seriously feenin for some more 12″ ESB figures. But clearly I’ve gotta work out some

    This Luke Skywalker and Han Solo set looks great, I would get that DX07 Luke before I get these Jeff, but that’s just me. You’re right about ‘Hawkeye’, he’s become expensive as hell man, but I have seen some here and there go for a shade under $500. If you can find one in the $450-$475 range you definitely should go after it if it’s within your budget. What most impresses me about ‘Hawkeye’ is the detail, sculpt, design, arrow set and sheer weight of him, he’s solid and not one of those fragile light feeling figures.

  • I’m trying to do what Barry suggested and just cobble one together from various parts auctions on eBay, but even that’s been hard to do lately. 🙁
