Han Solo

Edit - The two Han Solo VOTC/VSTC figures -



and



Which do you prefer?  Which one is a better figure?

Also, are you happy that Han has gotten two versions already that are so similar while so many other characters have not had any figures made in this style yet?

So far this is the only VOTC/VSTC character that has received two different figures...

You sure?

I don't own the VOTC Han, but I do own the VTSC Han.


But comparing pics and such, I like the Endor Han more because it's an improvement from one of my favorite POTF2 figures, plus it's an Endor figure, and everybody loves Endor. :P

I think I prefer the '04 version too... it's just more of the classic look that I like for Han Solo.  And while the '06 version has a removable vest, it seems a bit bulky on him.  Still both are fantastic figures.

I prefer VOTC Han for the fact it is probably the best figure Hasbro has made ever.

VTSC Han is still better than 95% of the line.

Upset that Han and Luke have gotten 2?  Nope.  Make all the Lukes and All the Hans from the Vintage line again in the Super Articulated style.  Better them than Aliens or prequel figs.

For some reason, I don't agree with that statement.

I concur. 

VOTC Han Solo is the single greatest action figure of our time.

Hmmm... I agree it's awesome as hell, but I think a few are better.

- Early Bird Chewbacca
- VOTC Vader
- VOTC Stormtrooper
- VSTC Scout Trooper
- SAGA Ephant Mon

Of course, those are of non-humans or have helmets on.

- Early Bird Chewbacca

He's #2 on my list... but VOTC Han is still the best.  ;)

Bah!  If they would have fixed his ankle joints so they matched his boots, he'd be close to the top...

Han's ankle joints?  Black, just like his boots. 

Ergo, VOTC Han Solo is better than ROTS #55 Obi-Wan Kenobi and therefore, VOTC Han Solo is the single greatest action figure of our time.   :)

I prefer the Endor Han. It has most (if not all) of the first VOTC figure's features, plus a trenchcoat. Add to it that the Endor Han was the only Han figure I had in the vintage days and that this is a great update that I've been waiting years for- that's what makes it top in my opinion.
