PPG First Look: Pop Star Wars Zuckuss Toy Wars Exclusive

Thanks to the kind folks at Toy Wars, Pop Price Guide has three yet-to-be-released Pops to show off! Being a huge Star Wars fan, you can bet I saved the best for last. Here’s a bit on the Toy Wars exclusive Zuckuss!

Who grew up in the heyday of the Kenner Star Wars line? Who doesn’t remember the Kenner’s 4-LOM/Zuckuss flub, confusing a generation of fans by getting the names mixed up on Zuckuss and 4-LOM, switching the two through the entire run from 1982-1985. So here were are more than 30 years later, and despite corrections being made in action figures, role-playing games, media, etc., beginning in the late 80s, old fanboys like me still switch the two names. But I digress.

Here we have Zuckuss himself, the bug-eyed Gand that appeared briefly during The Empire Strikes Back during the bounty hunter gathering on the Super Star Destroyer. Zuckuss is a Toy Wars exclusive and up for preorder with a September delivery. I have to admit, when news of this figure first hit, I was excited and disappointed at the same time. This was bounty hunter #4 from that scene, following Boba Fett, Bossk, and IG-88, and now #5 (the real 4-LOM) has been released). But…he looked so drab in the promotional shots. I’m happy to say that the final product turned out looking pretty good, with better detail and depth, plus slightly better color contrast. Now, get moving, Funko…we need Dengar to complete our set!

Again, big thanks to Toy Wars for providing this sample.

        Dengar will almost certainly happen at some point. They’ve done a bunch of bounty hunters this year. Wait another year or two. He’ll be an exclusive eventually.

    Does look a lot better than the initial shots of it. I might actually pick it up now…

    I won one of these back in June from Funko in one of their Facebook giveaways. It looks much better in person.
