Han Hoth Unpainted 4-up Hardcopy (269-003)
Above we see a dynamic pose of the Han Hoth unpainted 4-up hardcopy used in the production process of this Micro Collection figure. This particular Han Solo pose (269-003) heralds from the Hoth Wampa Cave playset. The "269" portion of the six digit product code indicates the corresponding playset, while the "003" indicates the character/pose.

The final photo affords a rear view of the 4-up. The unpainted 4-up is cast in a green urethane, commonly referred to as dynacast. As many prototype collectors know, the micro figures were sculpted at a 4:1 ratio explaining their immense size when compared to the production figures. A 1:1 scale gold micro prototype is present to visually illustrate the striking size difference.
