Lando Calrissian (Human Gamber / Businessman)

Lando Calrissian is a long-time friend of Han Solo. He joined the Rebel Alliance following the death of Jabba the Hutt and went on to become a General. While commanding Gold Group during the Battle of Endor, Lando piloted the Millennium Falcon through the superstructure of the second Death Star. Lando eventually met a woman named Tendra Riesant, and the two were married. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion, Lando greatly assisted the New Republic's military by supplying them with his new YVH War Droids, free-of-charge. Following this act of generosity, Lando was involuntarily pulled back into the New Republic military at his previous rank. This is Lando as he appeared in Shadows of the Empire.

Parts: Head (General Lando Calrissian), Torso (Stormtrooper), Upper Arms (Stormtrooper), Lower Arms (General Lando Calrissian), Legs (General Lando Calrissian), Blaster (Han Solo), Blaster Rifle (Stormtrooper).

Supplies: Super glue, X-acto knife, file, emery board, brushes, Testors paints, Testors Dull-Cote and Gloss-Cote.

Reference: descriptions from Shadows of the Empire.

Step One: First, I removed the heads and legs from each figure. I attached Lando's head and legs to the Stormtrooper body.

Step Two: Next, I cut the Stormtrooper's arms off just below the shoulder armor. I cut Lando's arms to match and super glued them to the figure.

Step Three: I painted the figure according to my references.

Step Four: Finally, I applied a coat of Testors Dull-Cote to seal the paint. To keep the Stormtrooper armor shiny, I applied Gloss-Cote to those areas.
