PGM's 2021/22 year gift selection for Jumbo line is a vintage figure that was never made. The Han Solo in Stormtrooper disguise.

Call me weird, but I think they should complete the actual vintage run before doing figures that were never offered in the original vintage line.

Many, many others I’d rather see before this. Wouldn’t be so bad if we were getting 8+ per year and this among them but I’m dying for a dignitary, Death Star gunner, or ANY imperials.

Looks like I will be joining the PGM again after a long hiatus. This is cool.

This is my number one want in the Jumbo line and I never thought they would make it. Hopefully it's on a full sized card and not one of those bubble only examples. That would be a monumental waste.

So does this mean the figure will be exclusive to GG and that I need to have a Guild membership to purchase one?

I agree, no small card. They should use the same image on the card back that Hasbro used in the Vintage Collection figure IMO

While they should continue to finish the original vintage run it's nice to see new figures being made.

When I first read about this I thought they were doing the fruit loops mailaway Han Trooper. I agree I'd rather see jumbo figures that were actually released but glad they're doing something with the line.

Not into this line, but the stance on the this figure (and the Luke Stormtrooper) looks odd. It should be wider.

Do these sculpts like, is there any chance these also end up getting made as Hasbro retro-style figures too? Or is that kind of totally separate? I don't do the jumbos, but I preordered the mcquarrie vader cause I love mcquarrie stuff, but would definitely get that one and this han trooper if they were made in 3.75

Probably. Although Hasbro is now doing retro versions of current media (The Mandalorian) so it will take a while for them to get to a figure like this Stormie Han.

Hasbro already released a 5POA Luke Stormtrooper about 4-5 years ago that fits nicely with the retros. Not in vintage card back though. See picture in link. Top row, Luke is on the far right. All on that row on top of the cabinets are retros. The ones inside the cabinet are true Kenner vintage :)

Speaking of those Mandalorian figures they would be amazing at this scale! Especially Grogu and Mando!

Only thing I don't really like with the Mando figure is, apropos to the vintage line, he really can't hold his rifle. I would have preferred they spend the extra $5 and also give us his pistol.

I really don't like how the cape sits on the 3 3/4"figure but it seems to work much better on the 12" for some reason.

Anyone know if this is still available? I see they revealed a new Gift Jumbo so I think I may have missed out on Han now dang it.

The Han is still available, if you login you can see it listed on the Premier Guild Gift page.

They haven't announced the 2022 gifts yet so I think you might be mistaken about a new Gift Jumbo. If you're thinking about the Luke concept jumbo then that's just a regular product, not an exclusive gift product.

Oops! My bad. I saw the Lando General PG gift thread at the top and for some reason thought it was a new offering. Now I went back and see that the thread was started in 2020. 🤦

I joined the PG today using their daily discount deal. Didnt see any place during checkout to choose my free gift figure (Han Stormtrooper). I assume/hope that they will send me additional emails with links and/or instructions, as well as my bonus coupons for being a member. Forgive me for sounding dumb, but is this how it usually works? You don't choose the gift up front when you sign up? I haven't been a member since the early days of Jumbos and I don't remember.

Sign in and go to whichever membership you purchased (you’ll only see the option for the one you purchased if you’re logged in). Then go to 2021 Premier Guild Gifts. Code will be at the top of the page. Your other discount codes will be on the membership specific page.

The problem was simply the membership wasnt activated yet. Apparently it takes a few days. I thought it was immediate. I see all the codes and available items now. Thanks
