Madine's detail alone is perfect for the figure and the paint application is just right. There is not much to say beside the obvious good quality which can be seen in any picture. His "Pigstick" is nice, if not short, but very rubbery like most of the accessories made now days. It is dissappointing about the stick, but it is what it is. The Elbows are articulated like a G.I. Joe figure. They both twist and roll at that Elbow joint. The hands twist too. But who cares about that. The real care is in the detail and paint job. How awesome he looks, what a replacement Madine.

The Vintage Lando General was always one of my favorite figs. I still have that figure on a original POTF card with the coin. When the POTF2 version came out I loved it at that time, even though the stance needed some work. Now a new Lando has made it out, and we must admit the POTF2 version needed an update. When I got this one I was quite happy, and finally we have a diffinative Lando. First of all his gun comes out of his holster. The color and detail is great. The Paint application is a bit sloppy, but is not so bad that it hurts the figure completely. Another sweet detail of this figure is that the gun strap is actually a holster with a strap that is REMOVABLE. Nooooo waaayyyy! I could not believe it. What a surprise.

I like both of these figures as well.

General Madine was long overdue and turned out really nice IMO. You can't really ask for much more out of this character considering his minor role. Paint and sculpt are very nice, he should please most everyone who's looked forward to his release.
Grade: B+

Lando Calrissian General is a huge improvement over the wide-leg stanced POTF2 version. The holster idea is great and the likeness is actaully pretty good. I had trouble finding a paint app. that met my standards too but once I did I couldn't find any areas I didn't like.
Grade: A-

Two great figures that came be customized into generic Rebel officers. Swap heads and there you go!

I love the figures, but I like Jaff's avatar even more! :D
