I don't know if people noticed or care (I don't) that Bespin Han uses General Landos legs, maybe why lack of holdster strap.

I'm hopeful he'll sport one on the holster itself come production.   :-\

Allright we found our 1 gripe to focus upon this figure! That and a possible "too tall".

That and the removable vest.  I think the images at TF proved he's not going to be too tall at all, but the vest is actually somehow a step backward from previous versions.  It's my only gripe at this point though...  I'd do without the holster even (I'd rather none at all than one that didn't function), however I somehow think it might get added in at some point.

Great wave. Every time I try to get out, they pull me back in with a great wave like this.  :) I should probably just accept that I'm going to buy these until Hasbro doesn't make them anymore.

And no holster strap for Han either.

Yet Bom has a strap.

Those are some pretty spiffy cardbacks, I especially like the look of the ARC Trooper (Fordo) card -although I wish Hasbro would just acknowledge that this was Fordo on the card.

The staff I can live without since I have dozens from the Guard, but the holster?  Wow...  Lame.  I hope they repack the figure in some capacity with a holster at some point.  Every RFT had the holster, so it's a pretty glaring omission from the figure.  Disappointing.  I wouldn't yet call it a dealbreaker to me, but disappointing for sure.

Lest we forget.  

Be careful what you wish for.....

I'll see if I can talk "someone" into making holsters (funtional) for your troops, because you know I need them too!

Strange, thinking of all the cantina types they gave holsters to and the imperial scanning crewman who clearly never had any.

In regards to Han and the RFT, ain't it weird how Hasbro can go so far only to fall, just short of perfection? If no holster is included with the RFT, I wonder why?
