It's probably the best Han likeness in this scale ever. Too bad it's on the older trooper body, but I liked that one so much I have like twenty of him or so.

I picked up a couple of these at a local Target store.  Finding it listed online and held for me at customer service was pretty nice.

Easily the best sculpt of a human that Hasbro has ever done.  Hands down it is unrivaled and not even close that I can think of.

How this can be shipping alongside the 6Ē Trash Compactor Luke with the goofy teeth is beyond me.

I managed to get one reserved at one of my local Targets.  Looks great!  I'm debating on either keeping it on the card or opening.  I might have to get a second one.

I missed out on the pre-orders but they now look readily available online. I just ordered 2 and have them set to ship to my local Target. Simple. Convenient.

Are you listening, Walmart!?

Just did the same and ordered two for in-store pick-up.  Hope at least one is a minty card for my Carded Han collection.

Here's the link for those that need it - TVC Stormtrooper Han Solo


edit: ran over to Target and picked up my two TVC HanTrooper figures at lunch.  Man, I wish every Target exclusive was this easy - so much simpler than trying to find a red shirt to pull a DPCI.

Found this on shelf today. Was just going to get a carded one, but now I think I need an opener too.

After being disappointed that they didnít use the new Stormtrooper body for this figure, i only picked up one. And that was primarily for the helmet and the head. I had intended to put the head on a VOTC ANH Han, but the skin tones donít match and I donít feel like painting the ANH Han. So the next best thing was to swap heads with TVC Bespin Han - that one HS an atrocious face sculpt. Now this figure is much much better...



The head peg needed some modifying to get the head to fit, but totally worth the effort.

That looks awesome!

I'm not going to lie, I hope they "real face" all these *******. Slave Leia, Bespin Han, ANH Han, ANH Leia...everyone.

Yup, I wound up with some extra Han Stormies and I may now just use them for head swaps since helmetless Stormtroopers are always fun too.

That headsculpt looks somehow 10x better on a classic Han costume figure.

This definitely improved my interest in the Stormtrooper Han. I had ordered 2 to hedge my bets on the helmet deco. I might just keep the 2nd one now.

Just gonna echo everyone else here.

Best Han ever, by a country mile.  One of the best "human" figures of all time.

And, yeah, had a stunningly easy experience at Target. Bought two online after midnight the day of release, picked 'em up the next morning, neat as a pin. 

I will definitely do an ESB head swap.  I worry about messing up the neck permanently on what is at this point a rare and expensive figure.  If I can accomplish the task by dremmeling out the head, so much the better (as they're clearly far easier to replace and, worst case, you wind up with an extra stormtrooper.) 

Can't wait to get the new Stormtrooper Luke this summer at SDCC.
