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.
The LEGO 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.
