#1920: Han Solo – Endor Gear

Posted: 18 Jan 2019 09:00 PM PST

HAN SOLO — ENDOR GEAR

STAR WARS: POWER OF THE FORCE II (KENNER)

"Han Solo commanded a strike force of freedom fighters whose mission it was to sabotage the Imperial shield generator protecting the new Death Star. However, a surprise visit from some of Endor’s native Ewoks appears to present an uncalculated setback."

On the Forrest Moon of Endor, everybody needs camo.  While Leia and Luke are just sporting some ponchos, that just wouldn't do for the coolest guy in the whole of the galaxy far, far away, so Han Solo got to be all badass long-coat-y.  Given the generally retread-ish nature of Han's costume from Jedi, this long-coat is his go-to look for Jedi-based toys of Han, as was the case for the '90s Power of the Force line.

THE FIGURE ITSELF

Han Solo in his Endor Gear was released in the 1997 assortment of the Power of the Force line.  He was the fourth version of Han to grace the line, and one of two Hans released that year.  He was also a nice compliment to the Endor Luke and Leia figures that were packed with the Speeder Bikes released that same year.  The figure stands 3 3/4 inches tall and he has 6 points of articulation.  The formula for building Endor Han was pretty straight-forward; he's pretty much just the first PotF2 Han, but with a new set of arms and a jacket overlay piece.  It's consistent with the rest of the line's offerings, but also means that this figure is saddled with one of the most "off" sculpts in the line.  The head never looked much like Harrison Ford, and the body was super, super bulked up.  Also, if you want to get technical, the shirt under the vest should be different if you're going for an authentic Jedi version of Han.  Topping it all off, the jacket's just really, really bulky looking, just further adding to the steroid-fueled appearance for Han.  On the paint side of things, there are some plusses and minuses.  The jacket works out pretty well with its camo and everything.  The biggest issue with my figure is the pants.  The initial release of this figure had blue pants instead of brown.  Later releases corrected this, but generally speaking, this is the one that seems to crop up most often, so odds are very good that you're going to have an incorrect version if you get one.  Han was packed with one accessory: his standard blaster.  It's oversized, as was the trend at this point, but otherwise a worthy addition.

THE ME HALF OF THE EQUATION

As with most Hans from this line, I wasn't particularly interested in this figure growing up, since it's so far off from his actual movie look.  I ended up adding him to my collection while on my recent quest to get a complete run of Power of the Force II figures, which my friends at All Time Toys are doing their best to assist me with.  I got this one from their bin of loose figures, so he wasn't much of an investment.  Ultimately, he's not one of the better Han figures from this line, but he's not terrible either.

#1919: Mumm-Ra

MUMM-RA

SAVAGE WORLD: THUNDERCATS (FUNKO)

It feels a bit boiler plate to have to start every Funko review off by noting that the company has the license to everything you love, everything you hate, and just about everything in between, but that's just how I do.  Apart from Pops, which seem to remain a fairly evergreen investment, Funko seems to slide from style to style.  For a while, they had their ReAction line, based on the Kenner stylings of the late '70s, but now they've moved forward a bit, with their new Savage World branding, which takes they stylings of Mattel's vintage Masters of the Universe line.  So far, they've done Mortal Kombat, an assortment of slasher flick stars, some DC super heroes, and, perhaps most sensibly, Thundercats, which is the line I'll be focusing on today!

THE FIGURE ITSELF

Mumm-Ra is one of the four figures in the first series of Savage World: Thundercats.  While some of the other lines have been sort of modifying the characters to better fit the Savage World style, the Thundercats line are more straight adaptations of the characters.  This Mumm-Ra in particular is based on his powered up "Mumm-Ra, the Ever-Living" form, which is a sensible choice, given its inherently muscle-bound appearance.  The figure stands 6 inches tall going by the top of the horns (about 5 1/2 without them) and he has 6 points of articulation.  The sculpt is unique to Mumm-Ra, and is a pretty sensible recreation of his design.  Obviously, he's super buff, as is the style for the line, but given the usual look for Mumm-Ra, it's not much of an adjustment.  The detailing on the sculpt is clean and sharp, and the head in particular has a lot of really nice detail work on both the face and the helmet.  The cape is affixed to the torso, and not removable, which was slightly surprising, but I don't mind it too much, since it means it's not flapping all over the place.  Like the sculpt, the paintwork on Mumm-Ra is clean and sharp.  He's bright and eye-catching, and he has all of the important details that he should.  He doesn't really have any of the smaller details like the Leatherface did, but it's befitting of Mumm-Ra's cleaner design.  Mumm-Ra is packed with his double-bladed sword, which he has a little bit of trouble holding, but is otherwise a pretty cool piece.

THE ME HALF OF THE EQUATION

I've never been a super hardcore Thundercats fan, but I do have some of the toys from the 2011 relaunch, and I can certainly appreciate the style they're going for with these figures.  This one's not actually mine.  As with Leatherface, Mumm-Ra arrived at the store with a limb popped out of place (though it was an arm this time).  While I don't know that I would have chosen Mumm-Ra on my own, I certainly like this figure, and I'm definitely planning to pick up at lest the Tygra figure from Series 2.

As noted above, the Mumm-Ra figure featured here was provided to me for review by my friends at All Time Toys.  If you'd like one of your own, they still have them in-stock through their web store.  And, if you're looking for other toys both old and new, check out their eBay store front or their web store!
