I've wanted this figure for so long now and snapped him up as soon as I saw him on Trade Me.

I was wanting to paint him the same way as the Kenner mock-up but now I actually have him in my hands I'm going to keep him as is.....he's to cool to paint.

I know he's not an official Star Wars character but seeing as this figure was the first one ever used to represent Han (Luke) in plastic form he's definitely going into the collection.....Luke's mock-up figure looks like they used the same character but it's Han who always stood out to me.

I would like to track down Obi-Wan, and Leia because they don't look to be altered much from the Fisher Price Adventure People they were based on but the others look way to kit-bashed.

I've read in so many articles and posts that the vintage line was 3.75" because when Kenner President Bernie Loomis was asked by a toy designer how big they should be he held up his hand and said this tall, so the designer measured the gap between his thumb and finger.

I always thought that was cool but after seeing the Adventure People (that Kenner had to be aware of) and the fact the mock-ups were based on these figures I'm starting to think that's a bit of retro-active history lol It's a great story though and just adds to the Star Wars toy history.
