    Comments: The Lando Calrissian (General Pilot) action figure is pretty inaccurate. In a surprising move, it appears as if the figureís sculptor decided to use none of the reference material made available by Lucasfilm. Not only is this figure sporting the wrong belt, and missing the huge comm. Link that should be was on Landoís right wrist, but they sculpted the wrong shirt on the figure as well! That entirely aside, the head sculpt was fairly accurate and the cape was completely off the hook, helping this figure to become one of the coolest in the entire collection despite its discrepancies.

    Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the Lando Calrissian (General Pilot) action figure has no known major variations.

    Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
    Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
    I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
