Lando Calrissian in Skiff Guard Disguise



Once upon a time I was given a Christmas tip from a guy at work which was two cans of beer..... To say the least, I was fucking fuming! Two beers??? seriously, his shit tip cost me another tenner because I then had to buy more beer just to make it worth it's while!
Same thing happened a couple of years ago when I used my awesome knowledge to make a mockery of everyone in the Detail Game
I was generously awarded a prize from Steve (Cantina_Patron) which became the 1st Star Wars MOC I had owed since childhood. Naturally I was over the moon about this Very Happy  However, this has worked in much the same way as those two cans beer!
The figure was Lando Calrissian in Skiff Guard Disguise. Being an obsessive collector and owning my first MOC.... I wanted more! And given that Lando in Skiff can be picked up for a reasonable price MOC wise, I decided to add more and create a small focus.... And trust me it is currently very small, but I'm hoping to extend this focus over the coming years so thought a starter limelight was needed Very Happy

So..... Here is Steve's costly legacy so far Razz  (I'm keeping a tally on cost Steve and you may recieve annual invoices :cool laugh:  )

Great start and a cool story, Alex cheers

I love Lando Skiff he's a cool dude with his removable helmet and steampunkesque style.

I also won a Lando skiff moc from Steve in a Detail Game a long while back. Steve is like the Lando Skiff Moc magnate of the UK - just sitting on piles of Lando investments... he may feel generous one day and throw a few out here and there for mere mortals lke you and I... he's a good bloke but I'd def charge him a comission on your new addiction :cool laugh:

Alex, that's a nice start to your Lando Skiff focus. :clap:

You should start with a loose figure collection first and then work your way to the MOC's. :cool laugh:

doh What have I done! Next time I host a detail game I'd better send the winner a pencil topper. :cool laugh:  

Seriously, that's a nice run you've started Alex. :clap: I'll look forward to watching it develop.

that's a nice looking run so far Alex, well done :clap: :clap: :clap:

I started a small run of ROTJ 77bk, Kenner, Jabba henchman, a while back, because they are fairly cheap (which thankfully rules out Yak Face and Amanaman of course). Haven't picked up any for a while now though, been a bit sidetracked with Vader mocs Smile

Looking good Alex, great figure for a focus, as you say relatively inexpensive to pick up & quite a few variations considering he only came on the ROTJ cards, I got a little side tracked myself with MOC's & now have a couple of small run's, can be hard work tracking them down for the right price these days though, you going to add any baggies to the run? can be picked up pretty cheap.

Good luck with the mini focus. Cool
