Han Solo in Carbonite:
Premium Format Figure
The Han Solo in Carbonite Premium
Format figure captures every detail of the frozen smuggler as Jabba's trophy.
Each piece is individually painted and finished, each with its own unique
quality and detail that is the trademark of a handcrafted Sideshow Collectibles
product. The piece features several illumination effects that provide added
authenticity, simulating pivotal scenes from the film - a projecting light
within the base to illuminate the carbonite block, side panel lights, and a
light simulating the superheat melting process that frees Han Solo.** A
wall-mount option also allows the piece to be removed from the base and hung on
a wall while still allowing light-up functionality with felt backing to protect
walls. Crafted in 1:4 scale, the Han Solo in Carbonite Premium Format Figure is
the perfect addition to any Star Wars display.
**Powered by battery (included)
or by outlet plug.
Former smuggler and space
pirate, Han Solo is the rugged, devil-may-care captain of the Millennium Falcon.
Fast thinking and quick with a blaster, Han is noted for his narrow escapes from
dangerous situations, many of which are the result of his own brash and arrogant
behavior. His skill with a blaster and uncanny luck are equaled only by his
extraordinary piloting abilities.
After winning the Falcon from fellow gambler and friend Lando Calrissian, Han
extensively modified his ship to become one of the fastest space vessels in the
galaxy. For this reason, he is hired to transport Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi and
young Luke Skywalker on a mission that will forever alter Han's roguish course.
After helping to rescue the Rebel leader Princess Leia from the clutches of the
evil Empire, the charming yet insufferable pilot finds a focus for his flyboy
talents. No longer a reckless vagrant, Han Solo becomes a general in the Rebel
Alliance and is recognized as one of its most deserving and courageous heroes.
With the Rebel base on Hoth under siege, Han Solo and Princess Leia escape to
Bespin's Cloud City. Darth Vader dispatches a number of bounty hunters to locate
and capture the fleeing Rebels. Boba Fett, the Mandalorian bounty hunter, tracks
the Millennium Falcon to Cloud City, and alerts Lord Vader to their location.
Darth Vader orchestrates a clever trap, forcing the cooperation of Lando
Calrissian, the administrator of Cloud City, wherein Han and Leia will be used
as bait to lure his true prize, Luke Skywalker. Darth Vader intends to
immobilize Luke by freezing him in carbonite, rendering him safe for transport,
and tests the process on Han Solo. It is a clever deal, as Boba Fett is rewarded
for his aid in the Rebel capture, and is also allowed to take the carbonite
encased Han Solo back to Jabba the Hutt, and collect the bounty offered by the
vile gangster as well. Han Solo suffers the painful injections and near
torturous preparation process, and once encased in carbonite, is loaded into
Fett's Slave 1 ship, and delivered to Jabba's palace where he remains frozen in
perfect hibernation until Leia, Lando Calrissian, Chewbacca, and Luke Skywalker
can rescue him.
