Hm. The figure itself is very nice (if almost 40 years late :D ) but the sculpt is less good. It's ok, but I think it lacks the Ford resemblance and I think I see bits of Jeff Goldblum in it.

Head sculpt is a little off.
Let's hope Hot toys will improve it later.

Nope, I don't see Harrison there either,

HT won't change it. As far as they're concerned he's done and they just want to sit back and watch the pre-orders come rolling in, which they invariably will. To me, HT are making stuff for THEIR fans and not those of the movies.

CHEERS!

Wow, does this suck. "Why so serious" Han was cocky and always had kind of a smirk and a twinkle in his eye; clearly HT isn't the end-all-be-all that everyone raves about. It's pretty obvious their sculptor only knows how to make scowling faces. Not to mention this is just some random guy, and not HF. Too bad, I would have gotten this, but not at their ridiculous prices. Pass.

By the way, there's no such thing as someone having a likeness that's hard to capture. I went to art school myself (as an illustrator). You either develop the skill to draw or sculpt correctly, or you don't. Clearly this sculptor doesn't have the ability to sculpt what they see accurately.

The figure is amazing.
Except for the head sculpt.

I'd love to upgrade my Sideshow Solo, but I'm not sure I want to spend the dough if the HS is not good enough.

I agree this sculpt is just not there at all. As I said before, at least I'm pretty sure the other one is Chewbacca. But I guess Harrison Ford is notoriously difficult to sculpt especially when you can't use any element of exaggeration or caricature.

People are saying that Hot Toys didn't make enough effort or just phoned this one in, but I don't think that's likely on their flagship Star Wars release. Maybe the better way to look at it is as a reminder of how difficult it is to achieve those perfect HT sculpts. So that even with all their best efforts once in a while they're still going to miss the target and you can't take it for granted.

Is this the same guy who sculpted Indy for HT, sure looks like it?
He hasn't gotten any better at Ford. The hue and cry was loud over that lack of likeness so don't expect any changes on this.
I always see Zach Snyder when HT does Harrison.

Indy was sculpted by Arnie Kim, but this announcement says that Han was sculpted by Kojun. A quick google shows that Kojun also did the Christian Bale headsculpts for the assorted Nolan Batman figures, so it's not like he doesn't have skills. Why he can't get Harrison Ford right is an open question, but it's not the same sculptor.

I'm also not sure if I'm in for this figure or not. I passed on Indy mostly because I didn't care for the headsculpt and didn't think it was worth what they were asking for it. I don't see Han in there, either, and given their current prices I'm pretty sure I'll pass on this one and Chewie also. Accessories sure look good, though.

If I had to throw a wishlist out there, I'd say they could have kept the headset hairpiece and done 2 faceplates: one serious and one with Han's cocky grin on it. But if HT couldn't get the first one right, I'm not sure I'd want to see what they'd come up with for the second.
