I had a dentist who looked like Lando Calrissian. This always made my trips to the dentist thrilling, as I would picture myself going to the remote Cloud City, where Lando lives and being given a grand tour. The reality is somewhat different of course, for Lando exists only in the Star Wars films. A dashing rogue of a man, a bit like Han Solo. He was played by seasoned actor Billy Dee Williams.
I had all the old Kenner Lando figures and this was the first of the newer Lando toys that I bought from Hasbro. This is Lando in his Bespin attire; he wears this outfit on Cloud City.
A delightful face recreation here, with slicked back black locks and a pert moustache drawn in superbly. His facial expression is one of a hero, he looks bold, sexy and commanding. The kind of man you know you can trust. As we trundle down his body, you will see this figure is unusually hunky in the chest region. An inaccuracy on the part of Hasbro and something they did to a lot of their figures; making them very muscular.
Despite the body looking too beefy, the color match is good and his hook on cape is a vast improvement over the old vinyl cape from the eighties figure. Lando can be posed at all limbs and he also comes with two blasters which he can grip.
The toy stands at about four inches or so and can be bought boxed for a few pounds. This is an improvement over the older figure, but the body shape lets it down somewhat. Collectors will also want to get the other Lando's, there are several different outfits to plump for. On the whole though, a solid action figure and well made for playing with or for display purpose.
