His left hand is cupped nicely so he can hold a lot of things, just not his gun. I took a picture of him holding a vintage Yoda, and I noticed his helmet is bigger than the vintage Yoda!

I bit on the cyber Monday sale at the disney store. I ordered the die cast x-wing, falcon, and star destroyer. Also the ERG pin and the plush wicket for my girls. I was really tempted on the 14" boba as he would have been $15, but I just don't have space for these.

Recently picked up some of the Die Cast Metal Ships from DisneyStore.com

Speeder Bike - CHEAP! The soft plastic parts were bent really bad while still in the box. No display stand and just overall disappointment for the price paid.

X-Wing - purchased for a kiddo for Christmas. Haven't opened it, but it came in with two of the laser cannons broken off. Looks good in the box with the exception of the broken pieces flying around.

B-Wing - also for a kiddo for Christmas. Haven't opened but it did at least survive shipping. Looks really good, not sure how the laser cannons will hold up to playtime thought.

So far I'm really disappointed in the line. Read in the reviews that the AT-AT legs break real easy, even in shipping. I figure the Star Destroyer is the only one that will really hold up but I'm skiddish to make the purchase with the price they have on it. Looks like Disney took some pages out of the Hasbro playbook on these and went cheap with high prices.

I saw the x-wing at the store in person, yikes they are terrible, I'll be returning the one I ordered - every single cannon I saw in the stack were pointing in different directions. Also saw the speeder bike, the front was twisted, the take away seem to be if there is anything narrow on the ship it will twist or break. Holding out hope for the falcon and star destroyer. Wouldn't be too sad if I returned them all.

My x-wing arrived with a broken cannon. I'll be returning that one. The Star Destroyer and Falcon looked fine, I may be able to post some boxed shots of them soon.

Also, not sure if anyone has mentioned this...but DisneyStore does a horrible job packing boxes. Usuall the item with one or two airpillow packs in a very oversized box. At least that's what I've been getting.

HA! I can assure you good man, if I'm gonna loot something... it won't be a busted X-Wing.

I'll be avoiding ordering anything after seeing this and reading some horror stories from our FB readers.
