Video: And we thought carbon freezing looked painful... Jeweller and all-around maker of things JerryRigEverything took a LEGO mini-fig of everyone's favourite scoundrel smuggler and turned him into solid gold. First Han gets coated in plaster and then heated until he vaporises. 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 favourite Star Wars character in a furnace may seem cruel, Captain Solo never truly dies, he only comes back stronger -- which gives us some hope for Episode VIII.
