This is not a topic of discussion. This is a topic of simple truth. If you have nothing good to say just enjoy the awesomeness of Han Solo and leave.

If you are a fan of the only normal guy in the saga feel free to leave your favorite Han Solo moments.

Han is the only normal human in the entire saga who holds his own with no special abilities, ancient weapons or hokey religions.
 
Have a nice day.
The  purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in
defense. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more
important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.

Drake and I agreed on something. Somebody get the camera out to capture the moment.

Coolest thing about him is that if you told him he was the greatest character in the universe, he'd give you a smug half-smile and say "I know."

I sometimes wonder how the character would have turned out if Harrison Ford didn't get the role.


Drake is flamboyant, and may go over the top, but if he were not that extrovert then who would move things along?

Everyone likes him because he's a scoundrel.  There aren't enough scoundrels in our lives.    :P

Its amazing how different it nearly was with Harrison Ford.  During filming of Return of the Jedi Harrison Ford got fed up with filming and asked George Lucas if he could kill off Han so he could go home early.  Obviously George refused and so we now have the whole Han and Leia marriage scenario in the EU novels set after the films.

That was pretty funny.
I will say Kurt Russell's Han did not seem to too bad.

It's funny how much the real dialogue had changed from the time of the screen test.
(e.g. "Organa-Major" was the system that got destroyed and Princess Leia was being kept on Alderaan - and "nobody goes near the Alderaan system")

I guess that shows that Lucas really was writing that osik on the fly.

As far as Han Solo goes... One of my favorite scenes was him and Luke talking about rescuing Leia from Death Star I; and Luke says that she's richer than Han can imagine. And he says, "I don't know... I can imagine quite a bit"

There was a cool triology written by AC Crispin that was Han's backstory pretty much right up to chillin in the cantina w/ Chewie.
[I can't remember all of the titles. The third one was called "Rebel Dawn"] They were pretty cool books, if you like EU.
