The figure ticks most of the boxes, with a working holster and cool accessories. The holster is a separate piece, but it's a little big and loose over his waist and leg. Just sculpting it right to the body generally gives better results, but at least you've going swivel wrists and ball ankles and a bunch of other joints you will most likely never ever use for this figure in this costume. It's nice to have the options, though. Han's Hoth jacket is wide open, once again showing a white lining behind the figure.
For variation hunters and those seeking the very best of every possible release, this is a figure you should have already purchased. If you missed him the first time, you simply must get this better version. If you're happy with your 2010 Echo Base Han just keep scrolling - you're basically shelling out a 50% premium for an admittedly very good head upgrade.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
