Star Wars - Ep V - The Empire Strikes Back

Lot # 474 - Live Auction 2017 - Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams) Puppet

Stock #72129

A Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams) puppet from Irvin Kershner's Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. Lando rose from the top hatch to catch Luke (Mark Hamill) after the young Jedi's fateful confrontation with his father, Darth Vader (David Prowse); the quick shot was achieved at ILM using a custom-built Lando puppet.

This Lando puppet features a soft-foam torso, with a blue-painted papier mâché shirt, and has a head that is made of sculpting compound and painted with detail. The puppet is mounted to a rod that raised the piece through the top hatch before Luke's fall from Cloud City. At the base of the puppet is a fabric tag that reads 'Hand Puppet by Carson'. This item shows wear due to production use and age, with cracks to the sculpting compound at the neck and general wear to the shirt. The piece remains in fair overall condition. Dimensions (on stand): 15 cm x 15 cm x 37 cm (5 3/4" x 5 3/4" x 14 3/4")

£3,000 - 5,000
