I have been slowly working on an ESB Han Solo, but things have accelerated recently with Anovos actually shipping several things to me. Sadly, three of the four were in the wrong size, and of those three, they only have two of them in stock in the correct size, but that should come as no surprise I am sure.

The Anovos people that I spoke to said that they were not currently planning to make another run of the Han ESB ensemble. Frankly, who knows what they are doing?

The actual quality of what I received, however, is pretty good. I would say that the jacket in particular is very accurate. The color seems just right in that sometimes it looks grey and sometimes it looks more blue depending on the light source.

Here are the parts that I have or am hoping to have so far:

Jacket: Anovos--Received 3/22/18

Shirt: Anovos--Received 2/6/18 (wrong size and no correct size in stock) Maybe Magnoli?

Pants: Anovos--Received 3/22/18

Boots: Lucasfilm--Received many years ago when they were selling very accurate replicas of things in their archives.

Belt: Anovos--Received 2/11/17

Belt Rig: Anovos--Received 2/6/18

Belt Rig Tools: Anovos--Received 2/6/18 I also got the Revell engine model kit from 1977 for a slightly more accurate carburetor.

Droid Caller: Anovos--Received 2/6/18

Blaster: Boba Debt "Accurized" Denix C96 Kit--Paid on 1/27/18

Pictures to come.

Jacket

Here are some photos of the Anovos jacket. The color really alternates between blue and gray....

The stitching looks very accurate to me. Curious to hear other people's thoughts.

Here's a thread with a detailed breakdown of the Anovos vs. Todd's holster rig:

The belt rig is pretty much identical to the one that was previously reviewed in-depth. So far, I can't discern any difference between mine and that one other than perhaps the bottom of the holster seeming to be finished off a little better than the one that was reviewed. I don't have a DL44 yet to see how that fits. My only other though about it is that the leg strap is a little loose on the tightest setting, so I may need to relocate one of the snaps.

Shirt

Here is the Anovos shirt. It's a little off-white. I think the pattern is accurate, but the fabric is not quite correct I think. It seems too thick to me, and maybe the texture is a little off.

The original shirt seems a lot lighter weight to me.



Here you can see the color difference between it and a white shirt, and you can see the shirt's texture:


Collar detail:




Here you can see the snaps:


The box is nice:




This picture in particular makes me think the Anovos fabric is not quite right:

The correct size of jacket and pants finally arrived and look great. The shirt is too small, so I need to find a replacement. Anyone know what color to specify for Magnoli? What is their turn around time?

The DL-44 is still in the process of being finished. I understand that the shop where the scope is being manufactured is not quite done yet.

If/When you place your order, along with all your measurements you can just tell them you want a screen-accurate ESB Han Solo shirt and they'll know what color, material, and cut to make. I think they say 2-3 months is typical turnaround. I received a shirt from them (not a Han Solo ESB, so I can't comment unfortunately) in almost exactly 2 months.

Sorry for the typo. I just have one shirt, which is a medium, and I need a large. (Typo fixed.)

I will contact Magnoli and see what their turn around time is like.

Thank you.

Small update: Boba Debt finally received the scopes back from the CNC shop and will be shipping out the DL-44s soon.

I'll post pictures when I receive it.

I did finally order the Magnoli shirt, but I am still waiting for Boba Debt to finish the DL-44. I'll post pictures when it arrives.
