Jeweler Makes a Solid Gold Han Solo Minifig

And we thought carbon freezing looked painful...

Jeweler and all-around maker of things JerryRigEverything took a LEGO mini-fig of everyone’s favorite scoundrel smuggler and turned him into solid gold. First Han gets coated in plaster and then heated until he vaporizes. The resulting hole is filled with molten gold and then polished to a high shine. Golden Han even dukes it out with Vader in a cheeky stop-motion battle afterwards.

While burning everyone’s favorite Star Wars character in a furnace may seem cruel, Captain Solo never truly dies, he only comes back stronger—which gives us some hope about Episode VIII.
