Attakus Han in Carbonite Statue

September 19, 2011

I actually got this a few weeks ago but hadn’t had a chance to take pictures of it until now. I’ve had this on my want list for some time, but they don’t show up on ebay all that often (at least compared to some of the other Attakus pieces). As with all of the other Attakus pieces in my collection, this was purchased for way below the original retail price. In this case, it was about $120, which I think was quite a good deal as I’ve seen them go somewhat higher.

I think it’s pretty well done, especially when you consider how most Attakus humans don’t really look anything like the actors. This definitely appears to be Harrison Ford. This is of course in scale with the other Attakus 1/5 scale statues, so it’s quite large — about 18″ tall on the stand. The carbonite block is separate from the stand, so I suppose you could display it on its own, but it doesn’t come with a hole in the back or anything that would allow you to hang it on a wall.

Representations of Han in Carbonite tend to either be silver or black/gunmetal and this one is definitely in the silver camp. That makes it a lot closer to the version included with the Gentle Giant Jabba’s Palace bookends than the Sideshow 1/6 scale environment. I think the Sideshow version is probably closer to the actual prop, but silver does make it easier to see some of the details on a small-scale replica like this.

Here it is with some of my other Attakus statues. Pictured are the Gamorrean Guard, Oola, and Bib Fortuna statues. Ideally I would have him displayed with the Jabba statue, but he will only fit on one surface in my office so that will have to wait until I can figure out some other display option. Han in Carbonite is the last of the explicitly Jabba-themed Attakus statues that I needed, although the C-3PO, Jedi Luke, Boba Fett and even R2-D2 ones could conceivably be displayed with these.

    Nice pics and collection. Do you think hardened attakus collectors would ever part with some or all of their collections? If so, under what sort of circumstances do you think collectors will sell.
    I have got into attakus recently (2012). As you know the prices have somewhat elevated since their release.

      Well, I can’t really agree that Attakus prices have gone up since their release — just the opposite. Every single Attakus piece that I’ve bought has been considerably under the original price. If you’re looking for Attakus statues, your best bet is to just be patient and watch ebay. Don’t buy the ones that are always listed at high buy-it-now prices, but instead wait for actual auctions or reasonably priced BINs. For some of the pieces it can take months for one to show up, but generally speaking they don’t go for really high prices. Of course there are some exceptions, like the Attakus Vader statue.
