I haven't pulled mine out of the box yet, but at first glance I'm happy with the figure.  I think it looks pretty nice.  I'm interested to see the mynock out of the box.

MWCToys has a review up of the exclusive Bespin Han Solo, if anyone is interested.  From the pics I've seen, the jacket does look a little short, but I'm still looking forward to getting the figure.  According to shipping, it should be here by Tuesday.

Solo, Han Solo.

Finally, was able to futz with Han.   Like most SSC figs, he looks significantly better in person than any of the online pics would suggest.

His cheeks don't look so bad, (strange that the box pics, looks really fat) in person.  His accessories are terrific, the detail on the blaster is amazing!  Two things that were a bit tricky, were when putting on his holster belt.  I had to take off his right boot to slide the strap on his leg, man was it a pain in the ass to get his boot back on, and the second was the hole to secure the bett buckle was kind of far off, and I had to pull on it a bit to make it fit in the hole.

Other than that, my only major gripe, was the right side of his hairline is not painted in very well, and it's kinda noticeable when looked up close, but I can live with it.

Overall very good fig, and likeness to the scruffy looking, nerf herder. :P

Well, Bespin Han arrived via UPS yesterday, so I officially have my first Sideshow figure.  I'm really happy with it and quite impressed overall.  Like others have said, the figure looks much better in person than online.  There were times looking at some of the pics online where I wasn't sure how great it looked, but now that I have it in front of me, I think it looks great.  After adjusting his shirt/jacket, and getting everything in place, he looks even better.  The detailing on the figures and accessories is top notch too, especially the blaster.  Also, although I'm not a packaging guy necessarily - I just have to comment on Sideshow's.  This packaging is really amazing, and definitely something to keep.  It really looks nice, and as others have said before, is quite collector friendly.  All in all, I'm quite impressed with my first Sideshow purchase, and I hope I can afford a few more in the future.

I've heard that a few times now.  Perhaps I need to track one down after all.  I mean, he's my favourite character from the Saga (besides Vader, of course  ;)).

Also, although I'm not a packaging guy necessarily - I just have to comment on Sideshow's. This packaging is really amazing, and definitely something to keep.

I agree.  This packaging is just too nice to throw out, so I'll definitely be keeping it, which I've done with my Anakin and Kit Fisto.
