Hot Toys Gets Their Hands Dirty

‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ has been lighting up the box office for the last two weeks! While it isn’t quick the blockbuster Disney was hoping for, the overall word of mouth on the film is that it’s a true ‘Star Wars’ film at it’s core with lots of throwbacks for longtime fans and a story worth telling about how everyone’s famous scoundrel came to be where he is now! The film see’s Han Solo starting off way down at the bottom, and now Hot Toys is bringing collectors a chance to add this down and dirty Han figure to their 1:6th scale collection with their new Han Solo Mudtrooper figure! Yes, Han worked for The Empire. Not for long thankfully, but long enough to get thrown down into the mud quite a bit! Now you can commemorate this low point in Han’s story with the figure you never knew you needed! The new Han Solo Mudtrooper figure comes packed with a removable helmet and face mask, a blaster rifle, and a special figure stand! Check out the full release from Hot Toys below!
