Here is a pick of Han as Carbonite verses the frame. The Carbonite looks just like my Illusive Concepts surface. The frame is black with a splattered effect of Carbonite overspray. Looking at online pics, the Carbonite Han and the frame section look the same color, but the frame is smoother and a darker shade than the Carbonite. The sideshow frame is definitely black instead. In the pre-production pics, the frame was a darker shade of the Carbonite instead of full black.Nice. What are the actual colors of Han and the frame? Looks like a big contrast. I'm also curious why they didn't make the bases similar. Congrats!
Thanks, good to know the movie version was just stickers too. I may still modify them and add LEDs. Make it an idealized version of the prop instead.Despite the bases, that's a hell of a display. Congratulations! I love that the side panels came in their own box. They look great. As for the stickers, I think those are accurate. Thanks for sharing.
As I look back at the reference picture of the Carbonite chamber, there is a second circle in the back as well that is exactly the same yellow-orange color as the neighboring rings. So I am not very happy with the base:
#1) I think the bases ARE supposed to be the same color.
#2) The scale of the oblong slots is VERY different. The width of the slots of both bases should be the same.
#3) The Han Solo base is shiny black and the Boba Fett is Flat Black. They should be the same.
#4) The black flooring of the Han base is 1/2" thick, and the Boba Fett is 1/8" thick.
Take a look:

Here is the original advertisement picture which shows bases with the same color and scale:

The slab is light enough to simply hang on the wall or mount horizontally. There is a TV style mount on the back, so if you wanted to mount it to the wall you would simply have to buy a TV mount.Hi starwarrior
ive got a Han in carbonate coming my way as well. Is the slab structural enough that it can be sat on the ground and lose the base altogether?
taking up that much floor space was never in the cards...and seeing how dissimilar the fett base is to the carbonite one...one or the other is staying in the packaging.
