Kind of a deep cut, but very cool. Han looks amazing.

I assume the Mynock and the breathing tubes are what is exclusive to this set?

This is probably why Hasbro didnít show Han for the longest time.  They had this exclusive in the works. 

Pretty cool job.

Pretty cool.

How different is this Han from previously released Han 6" figures?

The Mynock and breathing mask is neat, but not sure I need to pay $35 for these if the figure is mostly identical.

If you skip upcoming basic release you're paying $15 for the Mynock and accessories

Dave, 6Ē Bespin Han has yet to be released (but will be in the near future).  So itís new and whether you want the extras.

This, I like.  :)

I was hoping for a second there was some kind of environment piece included, but I guess not. Still pretty cool, def will buy.

Thanks guys.  Sign me up!

On a side note - I've never seen the term "exogorth" used before in place of "space slug".  Is that a recently coined name?

Looking at Wookieepedia it appears that this has only started to be used in the last couple of years.  I wonder why they bothered to make a change.

It's a very cool way to present Han Solo from TESB.  And the packaging seems similar to what Hasbro did with the Thrawn SDCC exclusive, with his office/gallery as the backdrop.

The exogorth term is new to me, too.  But it seems like LFL has been taking a bit of a deeper dive with these giant lifeforms that can exist in the vacuum of space:  the space slug in TESB was first, along with the Neebray's in CLONE WARS, the Purgill in REBELS, and most recently the summa-verminoth from SOLO.

Absolutely love it. Really hope I'm able to get one, as the SDCC exclusives are always a pain. I typically haven't worried too much since they have been re-releasing the figure itself later but being Han Solo - especially Bespin Han Solo, my favorite - I'd really like to get a hold of one of these.

This is really all about the packaging which, as Nick said, is gorgeous.

Video footage of me after opening the Hasbro PR box and finding this set inside: 

This thing is awesome.  Easily my favorite of the four exclusives they sent out.  Execution of the packaging, the mynock, everything.  So, so, so, so cool.  Hope everyone here who wants one is able to get one because you're not gonna wanna miss it!
