Image Bank: VC89 Lando Calrissian (Sandstorm Outfit)

By Mike — Friday, February 24, 2012

Hello, what have we here? When it comes to Lando figures, the Skiff Guard outfit is probably the most popular, and Hasbro decided to add a chock full of accessories, including a Skiff Guard helmet and Force Pike, to elevate the new Deleted Scene figure from good to extraordinarily good. You can multi-task Lando from Skiff to Sandstorm by swapping out his hood and poncho.

The sculpt is new and nicely articulated, but there is one drawback. There must have been a mix up with the color swatches in the factory because Mr. Calrissian came out a few shades too light in skin tone. The figure definitely doesn't compare well to Billy Dee Williams or even previous Lando releases. Let's hope Hasbro corrects this at some point, either as a running change or in a Battle Pack, if they decide to re-issue this sculpt again, because it takes away from an otherwise stellar execution.
