Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard Disguise). This is a great figure of a great character. I always felt Lando got a slightly bum deal in Return of the Jedi (although that pales in comparison to how he was treated in the sequels, but I digress), side-lined as he was in the Falcon attacking Death Star II with a character that couldn't even speak English in Nien Nunb, rather than heroically defeating stormtroopers alongside some teddy bears, or cutting off Darth Vader's hand... But perhaps it's just me?

Regardless of how the character was utilised, this is a really solid figure. A good likeness of Billy Dee Williams, a decent weapon and a removable helmet! What more could a young boy ask from a 4" figure?

Lando can be found in a variety of skin tones, both on his hands and face (and not always matching either). He also has some interesting Lili Ledy variants, but alas I must rely on others to share photos of those, as sadly I do not yet own any.

I do however own these three:

I love your little lando army :D thanks for sharing it :D I also think it is a great figure, love the helmet and weapon for him. I think lando did a great job in rotj but I missed him in episode 7 and 8 not that I think episode 7, 8 and 9 was great. But episode 7 and 8 would maybe have been a little bit better if lando had been in those movies :D

I hope you get some more variants and a lili ledy. I had a lili ledy in my collection withour knowing it :lol: When I began to collect variant then I began to check the figures I had and my lando skiff was a lili ledy to my big surprise :lol:

Love this figure, remember losing his helmet at a friends house in the garden in the late 80’s and spending all afternoon looking for it. Never found it and ended up replacing it in the 00’s on eBay.

Here are my examples, Kenner 65a and my childhood figure except the helmet!

Great MOC and well done for still having (most of) your childhood figure :-D. You've done better than me as I kept none of my childhood collection :oops:

Thanks for sharing yours :-)
