With the COO figures due in next week to finish off the Squidhead guide, I've decided to go back to the Empire line for the next little guide. Everyone's favourite administrator, Lando Calrissian.
First appearing on the Empire Strikes Back 31 Back card.

Here's a picture of the two figure variants available. Lando smile / No smile. I got this done almost 3 years ago to the day, By Steve at UKG. It was one of my favourite display pieces at the time!

Also has the spray ops variants of Smile and eyes or No smile and eyes. Neither of which is rarer than the other. With both appearing on all cardbacks.

Spray Ops :

There are a number of different available spray ops on this particular figure. The most obvious being the Smile / No smile figures. There are also noticeable differences between these two COO variants.
Lighter face and much darker neck on the China COO figure.

Belt buckle :

The figure comes with two different belt buckle sculpts. Both figures documented above come with the same buckle. I believe that the Hong Kong COO figure has the different buckle.

Why is it when I see the Lando with teeth I always think of the expression, 'Han, old buddy...'

Head sculpts:

Just realised that the twin set I had before consisted of a No COO figure and a No Smile, Hong Kong COO figure.
Here's an example of the various different face sculpts and colours available. The MIHK COO figure has a very similar mould to the No COO figure.

The figure has a different face and neck color compared to the other 'Made in Hong Kong' COO figure.

As discussed before, this figure came with two different belt buckle sculpts. This can be seen here in the picture. New figure on the right has a slimmer buckle.
Also notice that the line on the front of the figure goes all the way down on the 'Made in Hong Kong' COO figure as opposed to half way on the 'Hong Kong' COO figure..
