1/6 Scale 12-inch Han Solo Figure From Medicom Toys
A History of the Han Solo Figure
Star Wars became one of the most significant cultural phenomenons of the Century and impacted the lives of millions of people around the globe.
From 1977 to 1985 more than 90 unique action figures were produced and sold from the original three movies.
The first series of figures released by Kenner were less than 4-inches in height and only had 4 points of articulation but there were many differences and unique qualities in the individual figures that departed from these norms.
These figures were produced with vehicles and play sets based on the Star Wars movies. The figures were, however, sold separately clear plastic packaging.
The backs of the cards usually promoted all available action figures, upcoming figures and related products. "12-back" cards promoted a line of 12 action figures, "20-back" cards promoted a line of 20 action figures, etc.
Curiously enough the Han Solo figures were one of the few that Kenner went back and did a re-mold of.
It is for this reason you will often hear the term "big head Han" and "small head Han" used.
The small head Han Solo figures were on the original figure, released in 1977 which was replaced by the big head Han Solo on The Empire Strikes Back cards. You will however still find some small head Han Solo figures on Empire Strikes Back cards as retailers where able to send back unsold figures to be repackaged on the new movie cards.
Han is therefore one of the few characters to have been released on Star Wars: A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi cards.
Also the Han Solo figure was one of the original twelve-back figures, with the paintings instead of photos. Han also came with his signature blaster.
