Han Solo in Carbonite Statue by Applause

October 19, 2011

Released in the mid 90s, this statue depicts Leia as Boushh about to defrost Han Solo in Jabba’s Palace, and is in the same series as the Jabba the Hutt and Rancor statues that I posted about earlier. All of these statues all done in a monochromatic finish. I thought that the Jabba one, and to a lesser extent the Rancor, was intended to look like a metal statue, but with this one it seems like they were going for more of a stone look. All of the statues are in different scales, and the style of the Jabba statue in particualr is a lot more stylized than this one, but they look okay displayed together. My guess is that they went with these finishes because they’re a lot easier to pull off that a realistic paint job (particularly at this price point) but I’d be interested to see what this would look like painted realistically.

It’s fairly large at about 10″ tall. It’s supposed to have a light in it that will shine down on Han’s face, but mine doesn’t seem to work. For some reason, this is one of the harder Applause statues to find. They don’t show up on eBay very often at all, while the Jabba and Rancor ones are always available.

    Does it have any value to speak of? I have one packed away in its box somewhere, and could probably make better use of the money. 😉

      Not a lot of value, no. But you could probably get $20 or so for it.
