I'm a small head guy myself. Lol

I have both. The big head version I own is a poppy

To be honest, I never understood why they changed it

Little head is my child original, big head I bought a few years ago on eBay. Never knew the big head existed until I read an article on variants on starwars.com. It opened up a whole new area for me to collect - major variants. 93071F48-4C52-406E-9E0C-5295B6A220E7.jpeg

Oh man! Didn’t even know that , I’m gonna have to stop at big head and little head , no more room in the display or budget lol. Your figs are awesome!
There's also painted vs. molded legs for the small head. Just one more thing to gnaw on your soul...

Here's mine. Per DarthBeek I've got 1/2 the hair combos. Light hair small head and dark hair large head. And yeah it's an opened card (no blaster)

Does anyone know why there's such a huge variation here for Han. I mean, it's not a simple change or paint job.

What was their reasoning behind making such a drastic change.

Personally, I like the small head much more.

Was always curious did Small head Han only appear on Star Wars cards?

I'm kind of the oddball w/ this one since I much prefer the large head version. Probably because that was the one I had as a kid.

It's more of a 12-back thing with small head, or the elusive 31-back ESB !! There was a 31B ....graded on ebay in 2020 ( pretty sure early spring) .... it sold for a low number, I forget if it was $2500 or close to $3k , either way it was a great deal

How the heck do you post pics? I just took a photo of my Hans and it keeps saying it's too large? Won't even let me embed using Flickr or Facebook. What gives?

go to the top tabs here, go to Photo Gallery ..... you have to start a new file , but it's pretty straight forward.

Also, 31B Han small head is most likely harder to find then a DT Luke MOC. Last I heard , maybe 15-20 Han's , and around 35 Luke DT's .... yet Luke DT gets way...way more value , mainly due to the fact it's a harder to find figure.
