Target 2019 VC143 Han Solo (Stormtrooper Disguise)
« on: October 5, 2018, 07:04 PM »
I saw people bitching about the Han. How is getting a Han in Stormtrooper disguise anything but cool?

And not having a Han to go with the vintage POTF Luke has always been disappointing. This will be a decent compromise 30+ years later (for those who don't open TVC stuff)

I'm personally pretty excited about the new Stormtrooper Han. Yes, we have gotten it before,  but I never tire of seeing OT releases in this line, and it looks like the head/face paint is improved here. Plus, a figure that always sort of "belonged" in the original line. If it has to be an exclusive, I'd MUCH rather it be Target than Wal-Mart.

Wasnít there rumored to be a Stormtrooper disguise Han/Luke in Trash Compactor deco coming out (might be 6Ē).  Thought I saw pics of that awhile back.  Maybe it was that Hasbro diorama they did?

I missed the reveal on this yesterday.  Is it supposed to be considerably different from the Legacy Collection version?

It looks to be the new TVC Stormtrooper sculpt from the Rogue One cardback with a new head. If it is, this has lots of potential. Definitely going to put the Han head on a VOTC Han

Looks nice.  Hopefully it will be easy to find!

Actually looks like the old ball jointed Sandtrooper/whatever sculpt, not the Mimban one.

Yeah, the arms, knees, and holster off the belt make it look like it's on older Stormtrooper, but now with new Han head (not sure if it's a new head sculpt or just the new face deco technique applied to one of the old heads).

The more I look at it, the more it looks like 2014 Black Series #08 body.  That upper arm armor is the give-away.

Looking at the press photos, it appears Hasbro is using the 2011 TVC Stormtrooper, which is a mod of the 2004 VOTC Stormtrooper for Han. The giveaway is the cod piece lol.  Only the helmet is shared with the new 2019 TVC Stormtrooper. Thatís a bit disappointing as I was hoping to be able to build up the new design when Target overflows with Han. Oh well...

Very disappointed that they're using the previous Stormtrooper body. Probably my least favorite. Hoping against hope that maybe the press images are mock ups and that they're using superior new mold for production.

Go to www.yakface.com and look at in-hand pics of the Han.  This is an exclusive I can safely say I want a few of.  That's a nice Han likeness there.
