I just saw Solo, and now have a much greater appreciation for the Kessel Guards; if this set ever goes on sale, I'll pick up another one so I can have 2 guards.

Yeah the Kessel guard definitely is more appealing after the movie. I have my fingers crossed (probably futile) that they release the Kessel tech's some day. Those sort of Cloud Car Pilot Yellow guys.

Picked up another of these sets @ Burlington Coat Factory for $2.99 (marked down from $4.99). Excellent price for this great set. I only got this for the Kessel Guard & the Laser cannon; really digging the look of both this character & the weapon - fantastic.

They definitely have an old-skool, Vintage Kenner SW "vibe'. Makes sense, since these are 5 POA figures & the Solo film was set only about 10 years prior to ANH.

I almost did the same, but then put it back because I just cannot stomach getting another poser Lando.
Secondly, it's just too difficult trying to customize these figures.

I agree that the Lando isn't impressive at all, but I only got another of these sets for the great Kessel guard. I.e., even discounting the Lando I feel that $3 for an additional Kessel guard w/Laser cannon was a steal - great price, for an excellent figure & weapon set.

seen it at Five Below recently as well.
I grabbed an extra set from FiveBelow today to have a second Kessel Guard. They seem to have restocked because they also had the muddy Han and Chewie pack as well, which had been long sold out before.

Yup, I've also seen the Rebolt and hound set at some, but not all the stores I've been to recently.

I ended up with 6 of these, just for the Kessel Guards. The price was low enough that I would have bought them as singles, and all those Landos just came along for the ride. 🤷‍♂️

i also bought an extra to see if I could somehow add articulation, I suspect this will be a WIP for another 5 years though with my schedule.
