There's a Han Solo in Carbonite RIGHT THERE, Grab It You Moron!
JPX unearthed this picture he took of me in 1985. This is me a few weeks into being 17 years old. There's all kinds of things to make fun of here, but nothing that stings more than the fact that this was the first and LAST time we saw the Power of the Force collection of Star Wars figs on the shelves. Except maybe how thin I am. Was.
About three figures to the right of my head there is indeed a Han Solo in Carbonite figure, hanging there with its puny 4 dollar price tag. Maybe less, I don't remember. Anyway, if you assume four bucks then the carded figure has enjoyed a three thousand percent markup. Dang!
