Disney is still using in a series of Disney Store exclusive action figures. The concept of Disney Infinity is that these are action figures which come to life so there already is a very toyetic quality to each figure in the line. I actually won this as part of a prize package for a Star Wars Reads Day contest at my local public library (my daughter's package has Kanan Jarrus in it), making it one of the only two Star Wars Disney Infinity figures I own. Let's take a closer look at this very cool, very classic Han Solo after the break...
Height: 3 5/8ths
Year of Release: 2015
* While these were originally game pieces for a Skylanders like video game that was just so-so, when you remove the electronic aspect they're just good old non articulated figures. Maybe too large to be called minifigures but the concept is pretty similar. When you're dealing with a static figure the pose is significant and Han's is great. He's posed in a great blaster dueling pose!
* The paint work is excellent on this figure. The Disney Infinity figures have very clean but very simple paint jobs. Han's outfit is so classic and instantly recognizable.
* Time and time again it has been said that Harrison Ford has a likeness that is just insanely difficult to capture. Here, though, Disney went with a caricatured appearance and it works really well. It's definitely Han Solo even though it's not Harrison Ford as Han Solo. Seeing this likeness definitely causes me to lament the fact that Indiana Jones never got a go in the Disney Infinity universe.
* Han's BlasTech DL-44 looks really cool here. It also is stylized and looks kind of like an updated version of the vintage Kenner version of the pistol rather than a film accurate version. That's a cool detail that fits with the game's "action figures brought to life" aesthetic.
* While the base is necessary for the video game to function (the figure
unlocks the character in Disney Infinity 3.0 and serves as a memory card of sorts for the character's level), it also just looks really neat. I'm a sucker for
any figure with a base, even if they're non articulated.
