Star Wars - Bat Earp, the Gunslinger
I've always liked the costume Harrison Ford wore in Ep V which is now mostly associated with the Bespin adventure. It looks cool, yet somewhat generic. Ebay has finally granted me a TVC Han in Bespin gear figure, but I must confess that I had wanted this figure for the simplest of all customs - the famous headswap. Throw a different head on the Han figure and voilá, you have a generic cantina patron, evil gunslinger, your personal hero for your next photonovel or fanfiction. You'll notice that I've given "Duke Solo" a DL-44 Blaster pistol from the Marauder Gun Runners range of products. The weapon does not fit into the holster, but looks great when drawn. If you want a holstered gun, just use the Blaster pistol which came with the figure. By the way: Except for the swivel waist and no ab articulation, this TVC Han is ball-jointed everywhere, just the way we like it. Love the figure, it was well worth the wait.
