PostSubject: Is there a singular correct Rebel Blaster for Poch Han Solo and PBP Han Solo?   Tue Jun 27, 2017 11:29 am

Hi guys, I managed to get my hands on a POCH Han Solo small head and a PBP Han Solo large head and was wondering if there was a singular correct Rebel Blaster for each variant? I know TIG lists v5 blue as a PBP variant but thought Han usually came with the darker colour? Any help appreciated. Jay

many poch figures came with kenner weapons, are you sure the small head is poch ?

ive never seen a small head han solo poch , in fact im pretty sure one does not exist .

i own 2 solos that are poch ... yours doesnt look even close . not trying to say either here nor there just saying thats all . also the hands look way off

You may well be right, I've looked into the small head further and there's not a single reference that I can find. Shame. Any clues on blaster for PBP Han?

I don't really know the pbp/poch line all that well. There is a book ( I don't have a copy of it but I think Bill does) that might be able to answer this question. Can anyone confirm if Javi's book has this info? If yor goin to concentrate on the pbp/poch variants I would recommend getting that book as I have herd it is the most definitive "guide" on those lines to date.

A copy of the page would be awesome. Some info on the book would be great too, sounds like a sensible investment. The poch and pbp lines throw up some really interesting variants.

Wow the variations in the one figure are immense. Very interesting. What is Javi's book called so I can keep an eye out for it?

Yeah saw a copy sold on 4th July for £35 or best offer. Can't see one up for sale at moment so have facebooked Javi. Now I know the name of the book I can keep an eye out. Just catching up on a couple of interviews with him online, and looking at the YouTube clips of the book.

Yeah really enjoying it. It's superbly designed. I can really appreciate it being a graphic designer. The "Inside PBP" article is really insightful.

And of course Javi's wealth of knowledge and expertise comes across in spades. He's been an exceptionally nice guy to deal with.
