    DARKLORD's Custom Action Figures (Part 1)

    LANDO CALRISSIAN: PALACE GUARD DISGUISE:
    Custom Action Figure and Photo by Roberto Williams

    PROBLEM:

    I liked Kenner’s vintage Lando Skiff Guard Disguise very much. I did NOT like Hasbro’s POTF II “overly buff” Lando Skiff Guard. I LOVED Hasbro’s SAGA Lando: Jabba’s Palace.

    GOAL:

    This was a simple straight-forward custom. I just wanted ALL the Lando’s in my collection to have a consistent head sculpt (POTJ Lando Bespin Escape - my favorite). So this was basically a head-swap. But since the new head is slightly larger than the original, I needed to create a better-fitting (larger) helmet, while still retaining the tusked face webbing. Also the stock Vibro-blade weapon was replaced with a sturdier one from the Vintage line. This is an example of a custom Action figure where most of the work went into the accessories! “We’re on our way!!”

    RECIPIE:

    1) POTJ Lando Calrissian: Bespin Escape (Head (Hollowed-out for ball-jointed use)
    2) SAGA Lando Calrissian: Jabba’s Sail Barge (Full Body, Blaster pistol, Helmet (face webbing portion only) )
    3) Vintage Kenner Lando Calrissian: Skiff Guard Disguise (Vibro-blade)
    4) POTF II Lando Calrissian: Skiff Guard Disguise (Helmet)
