Lando Calrissian (Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back) - Original Trilogy Collection 2004

Lando Calrissian

MORE INFORMATION

This Lando Calrissian action figure was released during the Vintage Original Trilogy Collection in 2004. Hasbro made a big effort to make this the ultimate version of Lando, and as of this review (5 years later in 2009), the figure holds still up compared with modern figures. The head sculpt is nicely done and has a great character likeness to Billy Dee Williams and the non-removable soft-goods cape is nicely detailed on the inside. Lando stands securely by himself without the need of a stand, and he can hold the blaster securely without the help of a small rubber band. If Hasbro is ever going to release another Lando action figure based on Bespin, they could include ball-jointed elbows and maybe a ball-jointed waist, but besides that, there is little to improve upon. Overall this is the best representation of Lando Calrissian in the Star Wars Action Figure line as of 2009.
