This figure really is a case where photos don’t do him justice. When I first saw photos of him, I wasn’t sure if I even wanted to order him because his face only looked so-so. I’m glad that I changed my mind, this Diamond Select Han Solo might have the best looking face sculpt that I’ve ever seen for a Han Solo figure. The molding on his face is asymmetrical complete with his signature smirk. He has nice color to his skin that matches his body. His eyes are green with some extra depth to the coloring. Like Anakin his hair is very nicely sculpted. He looks equally great with his hood up or without it.

His outfit is highly detailed. His jacket has stitching over it to give it a parka appearance. He’s extra stitching for detail on his pants also over his pockets. His belt is beautifully detailed and has a small snap to close his gun holster. Belt is covered in pouches and metal plates. About the only items that aren’t completely realistic looking are his boots, they’re vinyl and look it. They could’ve used some extra flocking or extra paint to give them the illusion of not being plastic.

Accessories included with Han are also fantastic. The Macro-binoculars in particular are very detailed and life-like. His blaster, the badge on his coat, and goggles all look great. Out of the 2 figures – Han is the closest to perfect as you can get.
