Ok gang, I'm excited for Solo this upcoming Friday. I'll be rating a couple of pops from the new film after I see it, but for now let's hit rewind and rate our old friend Han Solo from the 2017 Galactic Convention. So, from a creative standpoint, this edition of the galaxy's most lovable smuggler is pretty darn basic. It's labeled an "action pose", but it's lacking much...well... action. Han has blaster ready and looks like he's ready to pick off a few hundred stormtroopers, but it's not what I'd call a creative masterpiece by any stretch. As for detail, Han has a solid resemblance to his likeness. The stern'ish and almost cocky demeanor comes across somehow on this pop, and I feel that counts for something. The slightly curved eyebrows are to be commended for that. Han's full head of hair is on point. His clothing could have used a little "oomph" and maybe some better coloring, but it's nothing that detracts unnecessarily from his overall look. My copy of Han has some shirt stains, and it's not by design. He's also got a minor case of #funkohands .. Usually things get screwy when pop hands meet firearms, and alas, there's some noticeable paint spillover from gun to hand 👉 The rest of Han is solid. The hair is well done and his face is blemish free. Our beloved Han is iconic. I'm glad we have a number of versions that Funko has rolled out. This one will fall somewhere in the middle of the pack, if not lower.
