Lando Calrissian, Dashing Scoundrel
Set: Alliance and Empire

Date Reviewed: June 26, 2007

Sith Dragon Lando, Dashing Scoundrel
Cost: 18
DEF: 17
ATK: +8
DAM: 20

Mobile; Evade; Opportunist

Today we review the newest gaming system from Nintendo. The Lando DS is compact, portable, and affordable. Errr.....oops. Okay, so Lando isn't the latest in software entertainment, but he is most definitely affordable. Coming in at only 18 points, he has more options than a Swiss army knife. Someone in this game must really love Lando because every Lando has been pretty damn good.

Lando, DS has a very nice 17 DEF for a non-Jedi. It may be a bit lower than HoT, but that is because they jacked up his offense. He is a +8 for 20 DAM. The +8 isn't so hot, but the 20 DAM is nice. Of course this wouldn't be Lando without opportunist, so now you are looking at a +12 for 30 DAM!

This Lando still has his mobile attack, but for added defense he now also has evade, which will make him even harder to kill. Now one more thing that is key is something that he DOESN"T have - a commander effect. him being a follower means you can use him with Ackbar and make him a +16 for 30 DAM shooter, or you can use CS Yoda for an extra reroll on the evade save. Keep in mind too that at 18 points he can be brought in with Lobot or any other reserve/reinforcement roll.

100pts: Not real playable here, but i wouldn't write him off just yet. With his cost being so low i wouldn't be surprised if he fits in somewhere.

150/200pts - he is equally playable in either of these. His most popular roll right now is in the San Hill builds, but he can quite literally fit into pretty much any squad. The other thing i like is that he is as good as Lando, HoT but does not make him irrelevant. Both are still very playable. You just have to play them in different rolls. HoT can double for 10 more DAM, but is left in the open. More often than not though you will use him for his CE. DS is a great follower that can stay in hiding and do 10 more DAM while moving. Both are very good for what they do, and the new game system Lando is an awesome piece for only 18 points.
