Don't worry about it Darklord, for whatever reason sometimes people are just spiteful towards other collectors for giving their honest opinions.  And when there's one or two bad eggs in a thread, it can start to look like more people are ganging up on you than there actually are.

Man, I can't believe some of you are so obsessed with this ****.  It's a toy that retails for $7 and was not intended to be the Bespin Han to end all Bespin Hans.

It's a fantastic toy - if you want authenticity, go buy a $400 SS statue.

"Authenticity."  Hah.

Upon receiving the 12" Han Bespin from Sideshow, I immediately removed his space trousers, and was horrified to find a smooth, rounded nub where his package would normally be.  Are we to believe that the biggest scoundrel in the Star Wars galaxy was ill-equipped to put it to Princess Leia?

So, no more Han Solos for me, no sir!  Not from Hasbro, not from Sideshow, not from Gentle Giant, not from anybody.  Until someone accurately captures and incorporates Harrison Ford's genitalia into their collectibles, you can count me out of the Han Solo game, thank you very much.

I demand 100% anatomical correctness from my Star Wars collectibles, and I refuse to settle for anything less.

I never said anything about the 12" figures.

Take the pants off of the Han SS statue.

You might find yourself pleasantly surprised.

That's pretty much my feeling about it. I'd have been happy if they'd just kept making figures the old school kenner way. I feel we're just lucky that toy makers found a way to give us a better quality toy then they could afford to 25 years ago. Now if they could just make it cheaper. Sure there's the occasional sloppy paint ap, poorly designed joint/articulation or just bad sculpt but I think sometimes we take it to far considering it's just a toy that's meant to be played with. If I want something with more detail I don't go looking for a figure in the toy aisle but a unleashed style or high end statue. I pretty much have no problems with any of the figures I've picked up since 2005. If it's been a horrible figure I've just not bought it.
The most prized possession of my entire star wars collection is my Sega Trilogy Special Edition Pinball Machine.

He. . .  he has a penis?  For real?

You better not be fooling around with me, Travis, or so help me God I will come to Iowa and beat the ever-living **** out of you.

I already had my heart broken once before with the 12" Han.  I don't think I can take it again.

I've gone through two different galleries now, of that so-called "Premium Format" Han, and I've seen nothing to indicate whether or not said collectible actually has all his man-parts.

I demand proof, sir.  Photographic proof of his johnson.

You're saying that you [billcable]were[/billcable] fooling around with me, aren't you?

I thought we were buds.  I thought we were friends.  And then you go and pull this kind of ****.  Get me all worked up and excited that maybe there's finally a Han Solo collectible out there which accurately depicts Harrison Ford's genitalia.

How dare you.  How dare you.  I thought you were cool.  I guess I thought wrong.

I'm leaving for Iowa in the morning.

You know, I don't really feel like driving all the way to Iowa.

You just wanna meet me in Kansas City or something, so I can kick your ass there?  Does that work for you?

Let me know.

Sure, we can meet there.

Is there a Wal-Mart that is off the interstate?

I'm looking for the new Han Solo with torture rack.

Could we be in store for some kind of a midwest taint punch fest?  Damn it all, with my calender all full.
