This Han Solo in Bespin Gear was released in a Princess Leia Collection 2-pack, during the The Power Of The Force 2 collection in 1997. The second figure in the set was a Princess Leia in Bespin Gown. The figure is based on Han Solo's appearance towards the second half of The Empire Strikes Back.
Just like Princess Leia in Bespin Gown, Han was given 5 swivel joints, with one in the neck, one in each shoulder, and one in each leg. The figure's waist is not movable. Han can stand somewhat OK, but with the knees and ankles not being adjustable, it's better to place him on a stand (both feet have peg holes) for more support. There were two accessories included with the figure, a removable soft-goods jacket, and a blaster. Both of them are a good fit, but the jacket lacks a lot of details, including a side pocket on the right sleeve. The blaster of course is way too big and bulky looking.
The paint application on Bespin Han Solo isn't very good, the jacket is black instead of blue, and the pants are missing the yellow stripes on both sides. The "He-Man" look is outdated, and the face sculpt just doesn't look like Harisson Ford at all. All in all, this Bespin Han Solo is among the weaker versions released, and can easily be passed on.
The formidable sight of Darth Vader strikes a reflex reaction in Han Solo's trigger finger, but the Dark Lord's power proves too great and Princess Leia and her band of Rebels are taken captive.
