    Jul 11, 2013, 10:05 PM - Vintage Han in Carbonite LARGE size figure Custom (work in progress) #1

    When I got back into Star Wars collecting in the mid 90's I tried to keep my focus on Boba Fett and Han in carbonite. It always bugged me that I never had a vintage large size Han in Carb. to go along with the large size Boba. I've finally decided I'm going to make the Han in Carbonite that I imagine Kenner would've make had they continued the line. To start out I bought a old Han Solo figure that will be sacraficed for the project. I hate to destroy something that's nearly 35 years old but I won it on ebay for less that $10. The shirt has some stains on it but the pants are perfect, Oh well.

    I've built a wood frame for the carbonite block and cut some side panels. Not sure if I'm going to sculpt detail on the side panels or make stickers like the slave 1 han in carbonite had. Any opinions? whatever I do I don't want it super detailed. I want it crude like it was make in 1980.
