FROM LEMON TO LEMONADE - THE BLACK SERIES 3.75" "ENDOR HAN SOLO"

We can't deny that when we first heard that Hasbro planned to release a repack of the Endor Han Solo in The Black Series Wal-mart exclusive line, a few unfavorable words might have been said in their direction.  Immediately, we thought the company was unloading all their warehouse overstock at an exorbitant cost to their consumers.  Now, while that certainly could still be the case in this instance, we did our best to take a bad situation and still make the most of it. Truth be told, using this action figure for customizing fodder helped us add a few characters to our collection that we had always really wanted and his release ended up becoming a blessing in disguise.

We used the camouflage jacket from Han Solo to make the jackets for both Atheloe and Ownellco. We shortened all the legs and arms of the figure to create the body for Rycar Ryjerd.  These were all much desired characters we wanted to add to our Mos Eisley Cantina display. 

We were even able to articulate our Force Awakens Han Solo action figure by using the arms and upper torso of the Endor figure.

All in all, we sheepishly admit that we are really happy this figure was released after all.  Without his release we would have missed out on four figures we have really grown to love seeing on our collection shelves.
