It's Lando Calrissian and this is the third modern attempt to sculpt the Rebel hero, but only the first with a cloth cape.  The original in the 1980s got it right, but how does this one stack up against its modern siblings?

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,638

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 23, 2011

This Chewbacca has a good amount of gear, a great sculpt, and is friggin' Chewie.  On the other hand, the face paint could be better-- you should still look this one up, though.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,637

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 22, 2011
