I love the fact that Bib comes with a little shiv rather than a giant laser rifle or something like that. Bib Fortuna is more the kind of guy to stab someone in back or slip his dagger between someone's ribs. The accessory suits him. And, unless I'm mistaken—I think that's the same dagger shown in the Star Wars: Visual Dictionary next to Bib Fortuna. Does anyone know where there'a a scan of that page?


I agree with you about Bib's knife. Although I think Bib is too much of a wuss to actually stab anyone. I think he uses that knife to cut peel apples and pick the dirt out from under his finger and toe nails :)

I know that was a great contribution to this thread!
I have the OT Vis. Dictionary, and it does say that he rubs poison on his knive... so I don't think he picks his fingernails with it. Or his nose. Or his ass, for that matter.  :P

now what would be cool if the carb block had some sort of light in it to turn the melting effect on or off, or if it was a two sided block one side the way we see it and the other a melted carb block like the i believe came with the Jabba Palace Dio.  oh what the heck am i thinking that would actually require hasbro to go out of their way for something, silly me.  another thing though why is only his upper half red.  last time i watched the movie it looked like his whole body was melting at once not in stages.

I was just wondering, do you guys thing they cut Han short of leg articulation to match the Saga Skiff Guard Lando from two years ago? He has an awesome upper body articulation wise, but they skimped out on the legs.

And I agree about his sculpt, he looks a bit off. Then again, it kind of looks like the VOTC scuplt, so who knows. It may look better in person.

I definately believe that Han was going to be used at the end of the Saga line had the DVD repacks not come out.

Hasbro finally has their update up on the first wave of The Saga Collection, slated for 2006.  We've seen them all by now, but you can find pics and info at their update above.

Wow, just wow.  This really is a fantastic figure.  It completely blows the SotE version away.  I don't even really care what kind of articulation is has, the sculpt is fantastic IMHO.   :)
