This Lobot action figure was released during the Power Of The Force 2 series in 1998. The figure has the for the series typical 6 point of articulation (head, 2 arms, waist, 2 legs), and came with a blaster and a transmitter device. Lobot's head sculpt looks pretty good and does look like the actor John Hollis who played him. Unfortunately though, Kenner (still Kenner at the time, not Hasbro) decided to give Lobot a pre-defined leg stance, which forces you to constantly have Lobot displayed in a somewhat action oriented pose. The blaster fits quite well into Lobot's hand, but the transmitter causes some difficulties. He can hold it to some degree, but it looks clumsy and looks like as if it's just about to fall out of his hand. Lobot can stand securely, but the holes in his feet are present if you want to place him onto a stand. At the time when the figure was released, it was a decent figure, but nowadays it has a hard time when compared to modern Star Wars action figures.
As the cyborg administrative assistant to Cloud City, Lobot made certain that Lando Calrissian and his Rebel companions would safely escape the Imperial occupied city.
