This 4-Lom (Zuckuss) action figure was released individually carded, but was part of an exclusive convention 2-pack along with Zuckuss (4-LOM). Both figures officially kicked off The Vintage Collection packaging Easter weekend at Jedi-Con 2010 in Germany. Later, in August 2010, the 2-pack was sold as a convention exclusive in the United States at Celebration V in Orlando, FL. Both figures are a nod to the original Kenner Star Wars line with vintage-style packaging, a paint application mimicking the original figures, and the mixed-up names on the packaging (in the original line, Kenner incorrectly named 4-LOM Zuckuss and Zuckuss 4-LOM). Both characters appear briefly in The Empire Strikes Back when Darth Vader hires Bounty Hunters to track down Han Solo.
The figure is a re-release and repaint of the Zuckuss figure from 2009's The Legacy Collection. This time though, Hasbro repainted the figure and gave it a new soft goods skirt.
4-LOM is super articulated with 14 joints, including a ball-jointed neck, shoulders, elbows, knees and ankles. There are swivel joints in both wrists, the waist and both legs. Zuckuss stands very securely on its own without the need of a stand. The included blaster rifle fits very loosely into both of the figure's hands, the right better than the left. However, if you have Zuckuss hold the blaster rifle with two hands it's a good fit and won't give you much trouble. The breathing device uses 2 cables, which plug into the front of Zuckuss' face. Both cables run down his front, all the way to the back where the device is plugged into a hole in the figure's back. It attaches firmly and won't come off easily.
The paint application on this version of Zuckuss is a nod to the original vintage figure, and Hasbro managed to mimic the color quite well. The figure really does have an old-school feeling to it. The super articulated mold is fantastic, with lots of details around the facial area, and some nice details on Zuckuss' front armor. All things considered, this figure turned out great and is well worth adding to the collection!
