Firefly Easter Egg – Carbonite Han Solo
A brilliant discovery has been made by Amy, a fellow ladygeek over at Geek With Curves. Apparently, a carbonite Han Solo action figure can be spotted in the background in several episodes of Firefly.
According to GWC:
A Han Solo in Carbonite was brought on set since Nathan Fillion is such a huge Star Wars fan. The props team joked around and added it to sets whenever they could, it apparently became a running joke. It didn’t get grabbed out of every scene before shooting though.
Above, you can see Han Solo on the counter above Mal’s shoulder in the episode, Heart of Gold.
So far the episodes that the carbonite Han Solo has been spotted in are The Message, Objects in Space, Jaynestown, Serenity, and Heart of Gold.

I don’t know what your plans are for the next few days, but I know that I will be re-watching the entire season of Firefly – scouring the background for a little frozen Han Solo.
