Hasbro 12″ Lando Calrissian in Skiff Disguise Figure

Hasbro’s line of 12″ figures seems a little strange to me. As someone who basically started collecting with Sideshow’s line of 1/6 scale figures, I associate figures in this scale with high-end collector-oriented figures, rather than toys that you might find at your local store and actually give to a kid to play with. Of course at the time there were plenty of collectors buying these figures as well, but generally speaking they were made to be affordable and relatively sturdy. These are toys that can stand up to a little play, even if they don’t come close to Sideshow or Hot Toys figures in terms of their appearance. I have a few other figures from this line, including Slave Leia & R2-D2, Leia as Boushh, and the Gamorrean Guard. Lando seems to be one of the harder-to-find figures in the line for some reason.

Hasbro certainly seems to lead the industry in twisty-tie use. I find that using wire clippers or nail clippers to snip them off is much easier than untying them all.

The head sculpt is really pretty good — especially compared to some of the other figures in the line. The outfit does look pretty plasticky though. And the helmet seems almost comically oversized. It also doesn’t sit very well on the head, so he wouldn’t actually be able to see out of it.

Some people have had pretty good success upgrading figures in this line for use with higher-end figures, but I will probably wait for Sideshow to come out with this figure before adding the character to my Sideshow Jabba display.
