So, it's a brand new day ...

Thanks for posting that flickr link Krayt - had not seen that photo set before.

So do any of you guys have this in hand yet, because I haven't seen any local photos, just the images on ebay and the links you've posted.

That cornerstore deal is pretty sweet - doesn't seem like it will get better than that for some time.

Those pics bring up a non-Solo Medicom question that I have: I have the SM3 Spidey that I got a couple of weeks ago, and he comes with a stand that looks very similar to Solos (I'm guessing the same one).

Are you supposed to put the little ring around the guy's waist somehow? If so, I don't see how it won't break. Seems like it is almost narrow enough to go around his leg, but not quite.

Those rings usually just go around the thigh portion of the leg, not the waist. It's a little awkward and I've never been able to quite get them to sit to my liking on the figure. I have the Medicom Boba Fett and luckily did not need the stand at all to keep him upright.

OSCORP

^

Usually you don't need a stand for medicom figures. But the wider ones can go around the waist, i never do that cause it can get tight. Those things can bend like crazy though, but i just use the thigh ones if i need to.



So do any of you guys have this in hand yet, because I haven't seen any local photos,

The head looks kind of big for the body. I think Medi should start development on a man sized bodies. Han looks like little kid. Maybe its the angle of the picture.

Strange. I've been trying not to see it but i keep seeing it.

I agree with the review.

"Who’s scruffy looking? It’s a great head sculpt!!! Every other reviewer talks about how hard it is to catch Harrison Ford’s likeness and they have been right before, but Medicom has nailed it this time. I think the head sculpt is a little bit stylized on purpose as Medicom likes to do, but it is unmistakably Ford. The skin tone is good and the hair is well textured and painted. You even get a couple of sculpted loose hair sticking out on the front. The eyes don't have the same amount of realism as we are getting used to from Hot Toys’ releases, but they fit well with this figure. The chin scar is there as well and overall, it’s a fantastic sculpt that improves upon but stays true to the Medicom SW line."

The figure looks ok, not the 180.00 figure I would expect at that price. I know I can get it cheaper somewhere else, but Im talking retail price. Anyway, I have never been a fan of Medi's stylized faces. I love their armored figures, but the human faces just look too cartoon for my liking. As far as the review goes I dont agree with the "nailed it part". "Nailed it" to me is saying they got his face down perfect, which to me is not true, if its stylized its not or never wil be a "nailed it" figure. But that is just me. With that said, I have to look around and see where to get him cheap.:D

good point. this is what i think most of the fans are saying. you can definitely tell that it is indeed Ford in the face, but not 100% on par. i'd like to get the clothes and gear for a custom figure, but i doubt i'll ever find them at an affordable price to justify it.

Looks like an 18 year old Han Solo. The resemblance is there, but it's just looking very young.

I really like the hair, though. I think that really helps with capturing the overall "Han Solo" in the sculpt.

I love the look of that Han Stormtrooper! Does anyone know if a medicom head (Han's) will fit a sideshow body (Stormtrooper's)? I'm not keen on the sideshow Han heads and can't pony up another 100 for a medicom stormtrooper.

Chances are it won't, as medicom scale is slightly smaller and the neck post is different too.

I can't wait to get Anakin Skywalker. The way they revealed Ani and Han together, I hope next they announce Obi and Luke. I think they should take another shot at Luke cause they've improved so much since their last attempt.

But knowing Medicom they'll probably throw us a curve ball , like Jar-Jar:lol.......and I'll still buy it:monkey2

OSCORP
03-12-2009, 05:57 PM
I would also love another Luke. (any version)
For Obi if it's an ep4 version i would not need it no matter how good, since the SS one is near perfect. I would dump any current SS fig for a medicom if medi made the same one, but not Ben.

Got mine today. WOW! Very nicely done Medicom.
Mini quick review.
Body 5 outta 5
I dunno what medicom did to the body but they revamped it. It's different, the feel and plastic is different. Joints are super tight. I didn't undress him yet but this is awesome. Also the hand pegs are in there so ^^^^ing tight ya gotta be careful. Medicom obviously revamped something here.

Clothes as always are superb. 4 outta 5 (the boots are newish material as well so soft you can actually pose the foot and toes....super cool)

Accessories are cool if not much, a stormtrooper belt woulda been nice. 2.5 outta 5

Headsculpt is great for sure ANH Ford here. (it is a bit stylized as medicom likes to do, but make no mistake it's ford.) I was a little worried after some pics (he photographs strange) looked great and others not so much but my fears washed away when i opened him. (finally a good Han Solo figure!!) I thought the neck looked skinny in some photos, but people i've talked to assured me in hand it's a non issue. And thank god cause it's not. It is a tad skinny but it really is no biggie as Medicom makes it work. And the collar hides it well if it bugs ya i can see pics makin it worse than it really is. 4 outta 5 here

Not worth 170$(what figure is besides HT IM or something) from SS but i got him for less than retail. If you can get him for $150 or less do it. Medicom has upped their quality especially in the body dept. I hope this means less fragile bodies in the future, and i hope this continues. Besides HT Iron Man this is my favorite figure so far in 09'. All in all the good FAR outweighs any minor negatives 4 outta 5 overall. If your desperate for a good smuggler/Han figure like i was this is it!

Sorry to be negative Krayt, but to me the headsculpt in your (otherwise great) pictures looks more doll-like than any others I've seen. It almost reminds me of the old Kenner 12" Han/ Indy sculpt. And up until now I've been quite keen on this figure. Is it the minimalist paint job that 'spoils' the sculpt?

OSCORP
03-17-2009, 04:45 PM
I'm with tin in his review of the HS/paint. But to each his own, no need to be sorry not gonna ruin my enjoyment of the figure I ^^^^ing love it!

"As far as the head - there's something about the minimal paint and the flesh tone of the plastic that actually makes the headsculpt more realistic in a subtle way. I actually prefer it this way than to have a painted head that may be more "detailed" - but fake in feel." -Tin

Yeah he looks good with his fellow SW figs. But Kenobi is going to be with SS Vader when he comes. Then maybe i'll have ANH Medi Han and ANH Luke in the back for an ANH theme or something.

Great shots Krayt - thanks for posting them along with your review. I like the way he looks along with the Medi Boba (the only RAH figure I have); they're a good compliment for each other and look great in the case together.

The sleeves on the shirt look like they could be a bit more snug, but I do like this figure overall. He does seem to walk the line between a stylized/realistic look, but I like that. I like that he is different from the SS version, and I like both for different reasons. If I can score it someday at a much lower price I may pick it up to go along with my Medi Fett. Can't have too much classic Solo anyway.

One thing though - shouldn't his collar be folded down? :monkey3

This han looks pretty good...not sure why his undershirt is as inaccurate looking to the movie as it is - rest looks good. Too stylized for my tastes..

I got it a few days ago from Play. It's a great likeness but as usual with Medicom the pupils are painted too large and the minimalist/ non-existent paint job puts me off. Plus the body is too small. I will try it with a larger body, but if I don't like that I'll put the head on a Medi stormie (after a repaint).

The Medicom body annoys me so much I thought I'd stick the head on a Medi stormtrooper. I had to dismantle the Han body first to swap the Stormtrooper neck post with the Han neck post. The other figure is my Han/ Indy kitbash, which I haven't had repainted yet.

Ditto that. I like the Sideshow better--I think this one is too cartoon-y for my tastes. But it would be still nice to have (with the massive discount) only because Han is my favourite character. I'll keep my ear to the ground.

I bet with a repaint that Medicom sculpt would be the best of Han that's out there. Especially after seeing what UltraJack did to that Medicom Indy with a repaint.

After a repaint, I believe SSC's Han is better. There is just something off about the Medicom face. I also do not care for the shirt collar.

I really like Medicom's armored figures, but something is missing with their other releases. Just my opinion.

I like SIDESHOW's better as well but I do think the Medi one is a nice representation of (what to me as well is) a beloved ANH character. But as I bought my three Indy Medis (Henry Sr., KOTCS Indy, and Mutt) for considerably lower than what they were originally offered at I figure this guy'll be available down the road somewhere for a more reasonable $100 (or less) as well.

The forthcoming Anakin looks good as well-- but not $150 just like I wouldn't pay $70+ for that 1/4 DSC SW stuff... maybe $25.:lol

It's not unusual for something molded in plastic to look better than something made in the "real" material.

You know its funny that Han is short and yet the Medi Batman is the perfect hieght. I think Medi was self concious about their last Bats and was determind not to let that happen again. That new body should just become the standard for all their American characters.

Has anyone looked at the body to see whats different ? is it just leg extenders?

The factory paint on Sideshow's Han is indeed a damn shame (those with eyes know that Trevor's sculpt is aces), and the Buck sucks... but even $100 for that Medi Han is a joke. It looks like a freakin' Ken doll in Han clothes.

I do wish that Sideshow had done a better job on Han's paint... on a shelf he actually looks great, but when you get close the "deer in the headlights paint" really smacks you.

In looking at the images, my preference is still for the Sideshow figure. I'm just not feeling the Medicom version.

$180 is the rip off price, sideshow and other online retailers are asking for.

At least the stylized sculpt doesn't have paint that ruined it. Can't say the same bout SS sculpt's.

Uh....that's the Import MSRP, not the "rip-off" price. And $130 is still too much for what you get, craptastic plastic - ill proportioned bodies, poor sculpts, cheaply tailored outfits and Hasbro-quality armor, accessories, boots & belts. As for the likenesses, at least there's an actual likeness of the actor beneath the SS paints. Something you can't say about Medicom's which hides the poor doll-like likenesses under the moniker "stylized." :lol

A product should naturally be more expensive to import a greater distance. You have taxes, tariffs, cargo costs, etc. If a company picked up that cost, they would likely take a loss on the product being sold. That's bad business. And are we so sure Sideshow's the "exclusive" distributor? If not, then they don't set the price for everyone else who sells Medicom's products.

Clothes,boots,head sculpt,belt and blaster all look better to me on the Medicom and its on a better body for posing as opposed to the buck, you get more natural human poses out of the Medicom..whatever about the height! the figure is nice and is a vast improvement over the SS one and i am sure Anakin will be as well, hell! i like SS Bespin Han better then their ANH version.

Products like Ventress, Old Ben Kenobi, Sith Anakin & EP 3 Obi-Wan, this are the select few which are actually good and I bought it. But the rest of the figures that they have produced just aren't worthy of a purchase.

the 1st SSC Han Solo was crap, the 2nd had a chance but was destroyed by the factory paint.

I still believed that SSC could improve and bought some of their newer figures like Lara Croft & General Kenobi....but well, Lara Croft looked nothing like the proto & the eyes aren't even looking at the same direction, the outfit clothing was horrible and it was a pain to get her classic tank top & shorts on. I sold her off for cheap cos I couldn't stand having such an ugly Lara Croft. I'll put Lara Croft in the same category as bunny padme.

I've repeated my general kenobi story many times and in brief, it was loose like a rag doll, can't hold a single pose, one arm broke within an hour of simple posing.

That said, I still ordered the 212th Clone Trooper....hoping that they would fix the looseness issue. I'm still waiting for mine to arrive, but I don't have high hopes.

..... Can we stop with the medi vs sideshow "who's got the bigger johnson" contests please? the stupid is giving me a headache.

they both have good points and bad. look. here's a nice breakdown

Sideshow headsculpt Actualy looks like harrison ford, but has a terrible paint job

Medicom's headsculpt has superior articulation, appars to be cast in transparent flesh resin( allways a massive +, but i could be wrong, can someone confirm?) and while it is more expressive, looks less like han than his stunt Double. Great Hair though

Both sideshow and medicom have Awful shirts

Sideshow's Accessories are superior, and have a greater degree of detail. however, this is at the expense of Fragility

Medicom's accesories are far more stable, being cast from a solid chunk of plastic, however, they do loose some detail, and are prone to warping.

Standing perfectly still, medicom's plastic belts look fantastic, however, when you pose them, the plastic can break, or at the very least will not pose properly. As such, sideshow's leather belts win out due to nice flexability of the leather.
( A GREAT upgrade to any medi figure is tracking down a sideshow belt, and swapping it, trust me, improves the look MASSIVELY)

the boots. Sideshow's boots were great.. a while ago. it's nice that they're getting softer, so the ankles actualy have some articulation, however, they fit far too loosely. medicom wins this round for nice, properly fitting boots. However, they shuld NOT have the odd cuff at the top, and Han's boots in ANH were Glossed, not Matte.

http://al-debran.com/debran/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/han-solo.jpghttp://l.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/us/wrlds/strwrs/pr/img/orig/Episode_4_Han_Solo_and_Chewbacca_1.jpg

however, they are not as HIGH GLOSS as sideshow's either.

Medicom's pants are beter fitting, as is the vest, in my opinion.

BOTH bodies have issues. The medicom 301 ai is a brittle body that needs to be adressed. Stands are a must, and while the bodty is more or less proportioned to itself, it does seem odly undersized when compared to other figure lines. fine if you're only a medi colector, or simply don't care about it (raises hand)
Terrible if you're OCD and collect lots of different lines. DC direct superheroes suffer from this as well.

1/6th Companies take note, TRY TO KEEP YOUR BODY SIZES CLOSE IN SCALE! we'll buy more if you do.

Sideshow's buck body pozes aqwardly, looks weird and.... wait.. what's that? they retired the body more or less and adressed the issues? hmm... perhaps they're listening. they might even improve their paint jobs, and casting methods if we give them time.

now if only medi would llisten to their fans as well..



Look, point is, not every figure is for everyone. pick the one you like, and buy it. Don't hate someone else if they say you'res is inferior to theirs. let the crazies have their Kool-aid, smile and nod.

Fact is, EVERY figure's got SOME issues, and NEITHER one is perfect. NEITHE one is a home run either. as a complete package, i'd say BOTH figures are B+ at best, and about equal with each other.

Got sideshow Han, and when the economy picks up, if i can find medicom han for 100$ or less, i'll get one as well.


And i'll swap his belt as fast as I can :lol

SS Star Wars figures are painted like dolls..face it, the only good figure we got was Old Ben.

He was trumped by CloneObi, who was trumped by the Stormtrooper who was trumped by the Utapau (I didn't have the ragdoll issues some crybabies are whining about). Last decent figure Medicom put out was their 501st but sadly, that's been shamed by the Utapau and if Sideshow's version of the 501st looks anything like the Utapau, the remainder of my Star Wars Medis will become obsolete as I have no interest in collecting figures that are closer to 1:7th scale and don't desire a Tie Pilot nor an Anakin that's shorter than my Sideshow Lukes.

I'll give Medi credit as far as the Toho figures, as to date, nothing better has been released, but when it comes to Star Wars, that torch is fading with each improvement Sideshow makes. And in the case of Han, a simple repaint of the Sideshow head will still bring you in under the cost of Medicom's (bargain bin prices don't count), which makes it a superior figure.

Well, no offense but there has been plenty of the folks who don't like SS figs nailing them for quite a while now. I've asked this question of the Medifolks who (more so back in the day) like to bash SS figures why they post about SS figures. Chavez being one of the worst and I can remember you doing it a few times yourself.

So I ask the question why now is it ok to ask this? Cause folks are talking about how bad a medicom figure is?


I am talking about the figure and i stand with what i said, SS Han looks like it should had been a $40 figure and the Medicom $70..are we not forgeting one is imported and the other is not?, stricktly just by looking at both..Medicom edges out the SS just as their Darth Maul does with a much more accurate headsculpt..They look good and Sideshow should never had raped the customer with a increase price for a crappy old buck body, the least they could had done to justify the price a little, would had been to give us a loose POS Pro body :lol.

I remember seeing the Proto last year @ SDCC. This figure just isn't worth that much IMO. The sculpt lacks a Ford likeness, ok outfit/accessories, and too skinny/short. SS may not be quite HT overall but their figures are better than most of what Medicom puts out. As far as SS Maul SS Maul looks like Ray Park who played Darth Maul. While Medicoms looks like Maul from one of the Maul SW Graphic Novels. Both are awesome mind you but one actually looks like something from a movie.


I sometimes honestly wonder if the diehard Medicommies think the world is flat.

hot toys would be nice if they did starwars.
but i like medicom han solo. i also have sideshows which would probably be better with a paint job.
i use to be critical of medicom ,but iam not anymore..
you either like the pieces done each company or you don't. just be selective.wow wheres luke from a hew hope. come on medicom.

Medicom vs Sideshow debates are funny, because what's so special about being crowned a distant 2nd to Hot Toys? :lol

So far, this particular SS vs Medicom debate is weak. The old debates were much better.

Maybe we should have a Sticky Thread of "Pix's current, former and future titles"...

Of course the only constant is "douche" :lol

Well for my dollar SS and HT are both #1 because I feel like I get the required bang for my buck.

This thread has been locked down-- It'll be unlocked later when hopefully like-minded collectors who respect one another's opinions can agree to disagree.

:rotfl And you're allowed to-- even in lemon chiffon :naughty :rotfl

Here's a few comparison pics because some people were asking if the Han was even shorter than the previously released Darth Maul.

And not to be left out here are my two other Medi SW's to share some time with Han.

Interesting. I see how this is gonna go. So are you planning to delete the Medikids' comments in the Sideshow product threads too since you're continually deleting all my posts here? Or is this just a personal bias kinda thing? :lol

BTW, why is your Jango shrugging?
