Ok I composited the two Lando pics to be about the same size. I also lightened up the smuggler pic so you can see things more clearly. The sleeves are not really grey on the smuggler Lando, but I had to keep close to the original contrast of color so you can see the folds. If I didn't then the lightening of the pic would have blown out the color and you wouldn't be able to tell.

Anyway in the pic you can clearly see that it's the complete Lando VOTC body. Arms, torso, waist (including the belt, which has now been painted to match the pants), legs, and feet.

So indeed it is only the collar and the head that are different to this sculpt (oh and the vest). Of course the paint job on the rest of the Lando now reflects the smuggler outfit better.

Not excited about this fig, but it has it's merits over my custom in the articulation, so I'll prolly get it.

One of Jedi Defender's questions to Hasbro was this:


1. Looking over photos from Celebration IV, it seems like "Smuggler" Lando Calrissian is made up of some old figure parts. It appears that he is using the head, arms, and legs of Vintage OTC Bespin Lando Calrissian. Is this the case? Is it simply a new torso? Either way, the figure looks great!

** Lando has a new head, upper torso, and belt. The rest is a re-use of Han tooling. Glad you like the result!

Han tooling? do they even know what they're talking about? Have they even looked at their own product? what an idiot.

Han, Lando - same guy! :tired:


Anyway, that is a great way to retool an existing Lando figure - they did a nice job; this will probably become my fav Lando fig of all time, given I wanted to see this version of him for pretty much ever!!!!

Thanks for the cool composite!

I don't think Lando's sleeves were puffy in the film.:upset: However, this does open up the possibility of Hasbro kitbashing us a Ceremonial Han Solo with that buttoned up collar.

You're welcome, however I got the photos from JD. I just altered them to make them clearer to see. So I won't take full cred for this.

Was that you, btw, who posted the original photos? It says "Matt" is the poster for that post in that thread.

Not me, nope....


As for the puffy shirt, I do not mind - that is a minor issue on an otherwise cool figure!

Funny how no one ever asks for the outfit Lando wore in the celebration scene at the end of Jedi. I am pretty sure it is different than his General uniform.

Looks like a good figure to me. I will be getting a couple of these.

That's what I was thinking, but Han's vest was over the collar in the film. Hopefully the vest is removable and not just molded onto the shirt.

Wasn't it just his General's uniform with the top unbuttoned?

I thought he was wearing some sort of a vest that was not a part of the General's uniform, which I thought was a shirt but no vest. I think his outfit in the last scene is very similar to what one of the recent Endor Rebel soldier figures was wearing.

Anyone have a screen capture of Lando's general outfit and outfit in the last scene?

all that seems to be different is the removal of the cape and gun holster and the addition of the vest.

Thanks for doing that! I thought it was a little different. It isn't something I am dying to have, but if Hasbro wants to keep putting out major characters it might as well be in slightly different outfits. I have never heard anyone request this figure. Seems like it should be made as much as Han with Stormtrooper belt, Luke in poncho or floppy hat, or some of the other clothing variations people have requested.

hmmm the lando general costume has an over garment with small cap sleeves the same as general madine. celebration lando has that removed and as has been said he wears a vest instead over his shirt. so for a figure hasbro would need to do a complete new upper body sculpt. However, I'd say it's justified as by that point in the movie lando is as much a core character as the original heroes. Not to mention 'Lando celebration outifit' sounds right for the dude. Ladies man and partay monster.

Dang, one shy of a six pack.

The head sculpt is better than the other Lando. This one looks a lot more like Billy Dee! Billy Dee! Billy Dee!!! Billy Dee Klump Williams! *claps*

I don't mind the retooling of the previous Lando. I'm glad that they at least tried. *shrug* It's close enough for me considering he was only in this outfit for, what... two shots that lasted about a minute.

Pimp Lando. (http://www.keithpaquette.com/kapscustomuniverse/pictures/jb/pimp.jpg) Problem solved.

I didn't buy any of the first waves of the Vintage figures. So, I'd like them to re-release the Vintage Lando.

Hey guys speaking of pink, I notice his shirt isn't! Hopefully this is corrected by the time he hits the stores in september.
