My favorite version of Han Solo, although the ANH outfit is obviously more "iconic". I never had the vintage one as a kid either, although I always wanted one (and it was the first one I picked out at my friend's house - who had everything). I also had the Endor Han, so I don't think my parents saw the need for me to have another - and I also got more into actual Star Wars figure buying with ROTJ (I was 6 at that time).
As far as the figure goes, this is my #1 most wanted modern re-do, and it sounds like (hopefully) we'll see it finally in 2011. I hope they get it right the first time, and we don't see the constant tinkering and re-dos that Jedi Luke has. As others have mentioned, the POTJ Han is a great figure for its time - and actually still one of my favorites. I really enjoyed that line as a whole, and thought the Han was great then and in some ways now. It does need a more modern updating, and I look forward to the new figure, but not bad for what it is. It is silly that we haven't gotten another version since then, aside from that Torture Rack version (yikes).
