Here's Medicom RAH (Real Action Heroes) Han Solo just out of the box, without his customized DL-44 blaster pistol and droid caller (only accessories that come with the figure, plus two extra hands and the customary display stand)
"I'm captain of the Millennium Falcon. Chewie here tells me you're lookin' for passage to the Alderaan system?"
What attracted me to this figure was the head sculpt. I have stopped collecting Medicom Star Wars figures because of their puny size and high prices, opting instead for Sideshow's Star Wars figures which are much better and also cost much less too - no brainer, if you ask me.
But this is one of the more accurate head sculpts of Harrison Ford as Han Solo (IMHO) - mercenary pirate, smuggler captain and cocksure braggart (exact words used to describe Han Solo in the DK published "Star Wars Visual Dictionary"). This is Harrison Ford with the 1970s hairstyle, in his starting role as Han Solo. In 1975, director George Lucas used him to read lines for actors being cast for parts in his upcoming space opera, "Star Wars (1977)". Steven Spielberg convinced Lucas that Ford was meant to star in the film, resulting in his being cast as Han Solo. The rest, as they say, is history.
Besides Han Solo's very well tailored Corellian spacer black vest and cream-colored shirt (his trademark outfit), there's also his 1/6 scale pants belt as well as pistol belt with quick-draw holster

And here's Star Wars Episode IV Han Solo in one of his classic poses

Han Solo's other trademark pose, etched in our minds since 1977 when "Star Wars" the movie was shown and introduced a whole new concept of movie merchandise!!
"Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid."Needless to say, I'm mighty happy with this one :)
