LANDO SKIFF - An Accidental Focus

Post by General Kahn on Tue Dec 22, 2015 6:21 pm

Lando Calrissian - Skiff Guard Disguise

Many of you already know how this came about, but for those of you who don't.... here's how What a Face  Basically I was playing my first attempt at the detail game over on TIG and was doing surprisingly well considering that I expected to be pretty shit at it. The prize hadn't been disclosed but the fact it was an MOC had. Now I don't collect MOC's and I knew that if I won it would be a bad thing because having one would definately make me want more!! cheeky
ANyway, long story short, I won and the prize was a Lando Skiff MOC, and sure enough the second it arrived I wanted more!!! The thing is, Lando Skiff's can be picked up for quite cheap at times so I decided that I might put a small focus together as and when I have cash or see one for cheap and all though it is currently only small this is what I have so far......

Fantastic side focus Alex clapping

By the way did you check the 77 B Anakin offer, as some of these were MIM too, even though the sticker on the back says MIHK.
This was at least the case with Vader anyway.

Very nice run Alex! I enjoy watching it grow. Wink

Definitely not MIM Chris. If it were, I would have kept it.
& Alex your 65 back MIM is a really nice example, it took me ages to find a reasonably priced example and it's not as nice as yours.

Cheers guys Very Happy

And yes that 77B should look familiar Steve...... I still blame you!!!! cheeky

Steve already answered your question Chris, no it's not, I do think Lando was also released on a MIM 77 back though, pretty sure I've seen a 77A somewhere.

Steve, the MIM is absolutely mint and was a total bargain as well Wink

One thing that I have tried to achieve with this focus is keeping it cheap, it's taken time, but has paid off, the entire cost of the 6 MOC's shown is currently running at £145 !!!!! That's not bad at all Very Happy

That's pretty impressive for a 'side focus' mate! Damn!

You should focus more on this fig and sell me all your LBs.

Looking good, i need to drag my arse up to yours sometime to have a proper look. I can see myself getting back into collecting MOCs, so regret selling all the ones i had. I should maybe get you to do some shopping for me if i decide to start again as you always find the bargains Smile
