Lando Carrissian is a good friend of Han Solo. In the latest movie “Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker“, he returned with Chewbacca in the spaceship Millennium Falcon, which revived the audiences’ memories to Lando Carrissian. So the launch of this Lando Carrissian action figure is very meaningful.

The costume styling of this action figure meticulously recreates the appearance of Lando Carrissian when he was the administrator of Bespin Planet in the movie.

The light blue long-sleeved shirt and dark blue pants of Lando Carrissian are very well-fitting. They are all made of real materials.

On the sides of the pants, you can see the obvious lines which carefully sewn by the sewing machine, and compared with the real pants, there is not much difference, and the workmanship is very good.
In addition, the black belt is also very distinctive.
