LEGO® Certified Stores (Bricks World) MINIFIGURE(S) OF THE MONTH - LEGO® Star Wars™ Cloud City™ Residents

Posted by Bricks World Storemaster on

Bespin's Cloud City first appeared in Star Wars™: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back but amidst the action, we only had glimpses of its residents. Let's now take a closer look and get to know these characters more.

 

Lando Calrissian

Lando was the Baron Administration of Cloud City in 3 ABY when the Betrayal of Cloud City occurred. He won control over the man-made Tibanna gas mining colony in a card game using his impressive gambling skills - or shall we say tricks?

He left Cloud City to join the Rebel Alliance in rescuing his old friend Han Solo but not before issuing a city-wide broadcast warning to his citizens to let them know of the Imperial presence and impending occupation of Cloud City.

He was the owner of the Millennium Falcon before Han Solo won it fair and square in a game of sabacc by swiping Lando's sabacc spare card when he greeted him knowing how Lando cheats and wins in sabacc!

 

Lobot

Lobot is a male human with an AJ^6 cyborg construct which he allowed the Imperial army to implant on him to run battlefield calculations for them.

Eventually, Lobot became Lando Calrissian's partner-in-crime and served as Lando's aide and chief for Cloud City. He became the city's computer-liaison officer making use of his implants which enabled him to communicate with the city's central network.

During the Empire's takeover of Cloud City™, Lando ordered Lobot™ to gather their security forces to outflank the stormtroopers™. Although they successfully helped evacuate the city by rounding up the stormtroopers™, the city soon fell to the Empire and Lobot™ was captured.

 

  

Cloud Car Crew

They operate the flying atmospheric vehicles that patrol the Cloud City. The cloud car are twin pods connected by a repulsorlift engine and were fitted with light blaster cannons. Each cloud car is crewed by one pilot and one gunner.

 

Ugnaught

Ugnaughts were porcine humanoids native to the planet of Gentes in the Outer Rim Territories. They have pink skin, upturned noses, white hair, and thick layers of jowls.

Corellian Lord Ecclessis Figg offered three Ugnaught clans freedom in Cloud City in exchange for their help in constructing it. The clans were then freed from slavery and was even able to build a floating colony of their own which they called the Ugnaught Surface, with the city of Ugnorgrad as its capital.
