I assumed Han was an AT-AT commander at some point, so they could work AT-AT's in the movie.

I notice he and Whewbacca the Cookiee are in chains too.  Love the big cannons they have.  Itís amazing how an accessory you can actually use and appreciate changes the dynamic of these sets.  Iím wondering if Han doesnít save Chewie from enslavement and wind up in chains alongside him.

Han in chains?  The word "insubordination" comes to mind for me when I think of Han Solo in the context of the Imperial military.

I was kind of surprised to see the set with Rose, BB-8 and BB-9E being carried forward in the new packaging.  And finally that Qui-Gon and Maul set has turned up.  A friend of mine also managed to pick up the Lando and Kessel guard 2-pack yesterday.

But I'm really wondering about the muddy Han Solo set and if it's going to be widely available?  Distribution for this segment of the line has been weak.

I wouldn't expect wave 2 of Force Link basic figures, 2pks, vehicles for a bit yet.

I spotted wave 1 at a store that doesnít seem to be honoring street dates.  I found the carry forward set with Rose and the BB units and the Qui-Gon Jinn & Darth Maul 2-pack. But Lando seems to be too smooth to stick around...

The Darth Maul and Qui-Gon 2-Pack doesn't look like it'll have much play value:

That's the best thing I've seen all day!

The twice retail Wampa set at $39.99 was the worst thing I've seen all day.

I picked up the Lando/Kessel Guard 2 pack and it is by far the best 2 pack they have done in this format. For 5 poa figures, these two stand out as really good looking sculpts. The cannon is really neat and a callback to the Kenner days. Along with the guard's staff being able to slot into his backpack, there is a lot of play value here. The only drawback from the set is Lando's holster sucks ass! It isn't a holster, just two rings sticking out of his leg to hold his gun. They would have been better off not including it, it's an eyesore, i just might cut  them off. Other than, it's a great set and worth getting.

It's outstanding. Really looking forward to the other Solo sets. Also re: Lando's blaster - appears to be missing the extension the six inch version has. Unless I'm seeing that wrong.

Here's another TRU Exclusive (found in Canada) that will need to find a new home here in the USA - C-3PO and R2-D2.  Looks like they are 'dirty' repaints of the figures released in the TLJ 5POA line...

It lacks the 2-pack assortment number and only has an item number (E4590) in the upper left corner so it's very likely not part of the regular 2-pack assortment.
