Bounty Hunters 30th Anniv Exclusive: 4-LOM & Zuckuss

Ebay seller Star Wars Army Store has updated with what looks like could be some sort of new 4-LOM figure coming out - I wonder if this is going to be tied to the Vintage Collection? Here's a direct link to his latest new listing...

Thoughts? The description lists it as an exclusive... any thoughts as to what we're looking at here?

This is looking like a tribute to the vintage figure to me... I wonder if Hasbro will intentionally mislabel him as Zuckuss? :lol:

Is that a repaint of the one one from the 30th Anniversary Collection? I think I actually like the paint job better on the one from a couple years ago. http://www.yakface.com/TGuide2004/html/tac/41.html

Funny coincidence, I had just bought that other figure from "Star Wars Army Store" last week ;)

Yeah, looks like a repaint of the TAC version. And I've been buying from him more lately too, and will continue to do so until Hasbro gets its retail distribution back in order.

Although it doesn't interest me as I have the old one, it is a cool idea for a Vintage-style figure.

I'm interested in it for the different color scheme (not that I really care about a nod to the vintage figure, but I like this color; seems more sleek and evil).

There are rumors/theories floating about that this figure may be part of the "Bounty Hunter Collection" that turned up on the Hasbro marketing slide a few weeks ago. If that is the case, I'd venture a guess that we'd get the other bounty hunters with vintage deco as well. Thoughts?

that would be an easy do for hasbro since after zuckuss and dengar they will have refined sculpts for all the hunters and all they would need to do is refine paint apps. Heck through in an Admiral Ozzel and it looks like a done deal. Rehash of the meeting on the Executor

Cool, I guess. Though I'm not so sure I'm that interested.

Yeah, exclusives are always overpriced and not worth it. But darnit they have that Maul I really want as an exclusive.

I am bit torn between the idea of I kind of like it but is it really necessary or worth it? It may have been cooler to just actually put them out in the basic line this way. I love that Zuckuss has the faux leather skirt instead of the cloth one that just came out. Again the big concern is price and over all I think it is a bit of a stretch for an exclusive.

darthmadonna, I think you're referring to the current Zuckuss that is in the Legacy ESB wave... the older sculpt, which is the POTF2 one is plastic. Unless there's something I'm missing.

Anyways, I might just buy on ebay loose via tunghori and get these for $6.99 each rather than a jacked up exclusive price.

:wink:

Oh yeah he just came out. HA HA I forgot that he was actually new. But the one I was thinking of is the newest one with the cloth skirt. Thanks.
