Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back Hans Solo Test Production Carbonite Bust
Empire Strikes Back - Harrison Ford “Han Solo” in carbonite test bust from STAR WARS: EPISODE V - THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. (TCF, 1980) One of the most iconic images in film of all time is “Han Solo” (Harrison Ford) frozen in a block of Carbonite at the climatic ending of Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back. This is a production-made test bust of “Solo’s” face frozen in Carbonite. Since the full-body prop had to appear to float via antigravity units embedded in its sides, this test 15 x 13 x 5 in. “Solo” head, incorporating a life mask of Ford, was constructed of lightweight vacuum formed plastic to gauge the durability of the ultimate prop and to allow it to hover on wires. Painted in gunmetal gray/silver in post-production. There is one visible crack on the flashing of the plastic, however does not affect the head or face. In vintage, very good to fine condition. Acquired directly from ILM Studios.
