I never owned Zuckuss/4-LOM as a kid, so I don't have much of any fond or negative memories of him... What I do like about him, once I got him as a teenager and I picked up Star Wars as a hobby, was the complexity. Compared to other vintage figures, he was a notch above most others. He had a spiffy pleather coat, the rifle of doom (the gun really was bitchin'. Like a sawed off space shotgun), and of course the webbing/backpack.
It really was a nice figure for the time. The insect-thing about him kind of probably wouldn't have been so cool to me I guess though. I wasn't into bugs much. Pretty cool regardless though, and the head had some nice paint details to attempt to spiff up a fairly decent sculpt a bit. Not all vintage figures were so well treated.
Flash forward... The POTF2 figure, at the time, was kind of revolutionary. The paintjob was really used to highlight the sculpt of the fabric the coat was made out of... if that makes any sense. It is one of the earlier figures I can think of that a "wash" of some kind was used to bring a more realistic highlight to a figure's sculpt. It looked pretty great.
Also Hasbro took the time to give him that creepy armor underneath, as an homage to his EU-ish background I guess? I wonder what was underneath the actual costume's trenchcoat? Assuming he had something on under that, I'd guess it's probably the only "canon" detail under there.
Flash forward, again... And the Legacy Collection's sculpt is phenomenal. The articulation is superb. Hasbro added softgoods, but not completely. They opted instead to go for the "Softgoods skirt" rather than a full coat, and honestly that's probably my only critique of the figure.
I actually would've preferred a full softgoods trenchcoat, with a removable webbing deal, and then have the freakish sculpted armor under there. Especially because, for some reason, the softgoods skirt flares out at the sides for no real reason. It's fixable, but it's odd looking right out of the package.
That said, I love the articulation. Bounty Hunters, though they didn't do jack in the movies, should really be treated as army builders, Jedi, etc. Action should be their focus above all others, so the poseability plays a big role I think.
Likewise, the sculpt is really quite fantastic. It gives off the "squat" look this guy had, and there's a ton of detail in his sculpt to enjoy when you're examining him on your shelf. Paint aps were really well done on him as well. Lots of washes, lots of light browns contrasting the dark browns, silver and other metallic highlights applied nicely. When you look him over too, he's really got that grimey look he had in the films. Like out of all Bounty Hunters, this is the guy you don't want stuck in the elevator with.
I'd still rebuy this guy though, if Hasbro ever went down the path of a full removable softgoods coat and web harness. Maybe they could even rock the pleathery coat for him?
I didn't buy the vintage deco version of "Zuckuss & 4-LOM" either. It's neat, but it really doesn't fit in with the modern figures to me. I prefer the thought of the Blue Snaggletooth, or something that's physically different I guess, beyond paint. Like, if they really want to do a vintage Zuckuss (4-LOM), I'm more into the thought of a removable coat, rather than a plain tan paintjob.
