Star Wars Han Solo in Carbonite model to add some brick charm to a certain bounty hunter’s favourite trophy.

One of the most iconic moments in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back is when Han Solo is frozen in carbonite by Darth Vader and taken away to Jabba’s palace by Boba Fett. It coined one of the most famous exchanges uttered in the franchise’s history, between Han and Leia, and the image of Solo frozen in that metal box remains one of the most memorable too.

Group has produced a couple of versions of Han Solo in carbonite. Back in 2000, the frozen smuggler was represented by a printed brick, which appeared in a total of four sets over a six-year period. After that came a moulded single piece, released in 2010, that remains today as the LEGO template for Captain Solo’s fate. This version also inspired a metal keychain released at the back end of 2020.

If you’re after a brick-built version, though, with a blockier charm to it, look no further than our own build.

As one half of Tiro Media Ltd, I mix a passion for print and digital media production with a deep love of LEGO and can often be found on these pages eulogising about LEGO Batman, digging deeper into the LEGO Group’s inner workings, or just complaining about the price of the latest LEGO Star Wars set. Make a great impression when you meet me in person by praising EXO-FORCE as the greatest LEGO theme of all time. Follow me on Twitter @RobPaton or drop me an email at [email protected].
