Unlicensed Han Solo in Carbonite Life Mask

January 6, 2011

Illusive Concepts made a full-size Han in Carbonite prop replica a number of years ago, and Sideshow Collectibles is rumored to be working on one of their own. But I’ve never really been that interested in getting one for myself. I don’t have any place for one, and it would be very expensive (think $5-$6K). But when I saw that I could get this life mask on ebay for just $20, it seemed like a no brainer. Jabba needs his favorite decoration, after all. đŸ˜€

It’s life size, and appears to be a plaster cast of the face part of the Han in Carbonite prop. I don’t know where the mold came from, so maybe it’s just a recreation of the prop, but it certainly looks like Harrison Ford. The mask came to me with one-tone, all-silver paint job that didn’t look that great, so I used some black and silver paint to detail it. I think it came out pretty well. It has a hook on the back so you can hang it on the wall.
