Didnt see a thread on my favorite bounty hunter yet so I though I would start one...



This will be my first Mini-Bust so I am really excited not only for that reason but because he is my favorite character in SW. I am really glad he is starting to "get some love" in the merchandise area.

So, who else is picking him up?

EDIT: forgot to mention, I have mine on preorder form Entertainment Earth... Since this is my first experience with Mini-Busts (I have order figures from EE before) are they a good retailer for Busts?

Re: GG Zuckuss Mini-Bust thread

I have him on pre-order as I love the scene with all the Bounty Hunters in ESB.

All we need now is 4-LOM to be announced at TF.

Re: GG Zuckuss Mini-Bust thread

Congrats on the plunge---your wallet will regret it! LOL Entertainment Earth is reliable and reputable, however, their prices are generally at retail and there aren't many price breaks. For future bust purchases, I swear by Northside Collectibles---nsidecollectibles.com. There are several others such as razorsedgecollectibles.com----i'm sure others will chime in. Prices are generally better at the smaller places.

Try your local Comic shop if you have one around. They can order them for you and sometime at a discount.

Zuckuss has always been my fav Bounty Hunter as well and I'm very happy GG is getting to him. I just hope 4LOM isn't too far off.

Re: GG Zuckuss Mini-Bust thread

Thanks guys...

I would love to have a whole set of the bounty hunters... but that boba is way out of my price range right now... maybe if GG releases a new version of him I might go back an pick up the others.

I have a local comic shop but they generally dont carry bust or anything like that. I might move my pre-order over to razorsedge because they look like they have the best price. Thanks for the information though and I am glad to see some other people out there excited about this bust!

Re: GG Zuckuss Mini-Bust thread

Razor's Edge rules, that's all there is to it.

Zuckuss is my favorite right behind IG-88, and I was thrilled to see him getting released this soon. The sculpt looks great, but the paint could use a little bit of work. No one reading this happens to have an in-person shot do they? I know someone had one of Plo Koon's in the thread I made about it.

Either way, Zuckuss is going to rock, and he's sure to turn some heads.

Re: GG Zuckuss Mini-Bust thread

Woah, I just now checked out your Zuckuss collection in your signature. That's very impressive. How would you rate the Hasbro 12" figure overall? I keep wanting to get it, but expect SS to do him within the next two years, while it's a bit of a stretch.

Do you have a photo gallery with all the pictures in at all? My Asajj one is here in my signature. 'love to add you to my friends list since I'm trying to find people who do character focus collections.

Without a doubt Zuckuss will be joining his fellow hunters in my display.

I was disappointed to find out Zuckuss was delayed till May as I've been looking forward to getting this bust as I can't get enough of the bounty hunters.

Thanks a lot! Character focus are a great way to narrow down ones collecting habits... If you try to collect everything then you would be broke!

I know hasbro 12 inch figures sometimes get a bad rap but the Zuckuss one is great. It has good articulation and a lot of great detail. It deffently worth picking up if you see it somewhere...

I really done see SS doing if anytime soon though... maybe in a few years, but not soon...

There are some other items to look forward too though... He is on the list of metal figures to be made by DeAgostini and there is and Atticktrx figure coming in series 5.

I dont currently have a photo gallery but I should be updateing that page pretty soon with some more pre-production items vintage and modern. I might just end up makeing a photo album eventually though breaking down each item individually.

Re: GG Zuckuss Mini-Bust thread

Just thought I would give this a little bump up since he is supposed to be coming out next month. Any new news or anything?

Re: GG Zuckuss Mini-Bust thread

Really nice looking piece, but I tend to be very picky with my orders, and so far Mr. Zuckuss hasn't made the cut. Once the first pics start showing up, I might be singing a different tune though...

Perhaps a CIV reveal, or maybe SDCC???

At least I am hoping for that. I'm quite excited for Dengar as well ~ when is he shipping again?

As long as they don't make 4-Lom an exclusive, since it is the last of the bounty hunters.

I think Dengar is supposed to ship in August...

Don't say such things, we must think positive thoughts.
