Upcoming: Sideshow Han in Carbonite Premium Format Figure Now Up For Preorder

June 16, 2011

Sideshow’s new 1/4 scale Han in Carbonite PF is now up for preorder on their site for $299. It doesn’t have an exclusive version though, so you might want to wait and see if other retailers will have it cheaper. Like the 1/6 scale Han in Carbonite, this has a Jabba’s Palace-themed base (as opposed to the carbon freeze chamber on Cloud City). While considerably bigger, the PF actually looks somewhat less impressive than the 1/6 scale version, since they only included a small portion of the wall. However, it does have a light-up feature for both the control panels on the sides and the “thawing” effect, which looks pretty impressive. It can also be wall-mounted without the stand if you prefer.

I’m hoping the fact that they chose to use a Jabba’s Palace-themed base indicates that a Jabba PF may be in the works, since this would make a nice companion piece for it.

    A Jabba Premium Format??? I’ll believe it when I see it but man that would be awesome (and unfordable)!

      I think it’s doable. The Attakus Jabba is 1/5 scale, so going to 1/4 wouldn’t be that huge of an issue, especially if they decide to curl his tail closer to his body and (especially) to not include the full throne. It would be expensive, but probably in line with a 1:1 bust or something.
