    Comments: Lando Calrissian sure has one heck of a great reputation for being a lady’s man, but when you really think about it, poor L Silky was getting less action than a Tatooine farm boy. One can’t blame him for his restraint however, living in a world were the only girl around was already in a lover’s triangle involving his best friend and her twin brother. And you can forget about Sy Snootles and EV-9D9 (yup, 100% all girl… robot), because our man from the Bespin System wasn’t into that Captain Kirk scene in any way, shape, or form; no pun intended.

    Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the Lando Calrissian figure did have one major variation in its spray ops. Some figures have the teeth and eyes painted white while others do not. The latter is not a production error, but it can be found on all three card fronts. Neither version is more rare than the other.
