Qi'ra is the other) meaning that unless Hasbro repacks this guy down the road he is probably going to be difficult to find. Seriously, Hasbro: You really should have double packed this guy! Original Trilogy figure + Empire Strikes Back + bounty hunter equals hot commodity! Let's check out the lovable 4-LOM after the break...
Height: 5 3/4ths inches
Articulation: Swivel/hinge ankles, hinged knees, swivel thighs,
balljointed hips, balljointed mid-torso, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel
shoulder covers, bicep swivel/hinge elbows with hinged pistons, swivel/hinge wrists, and a double balljointed
Accessories: DLT-19 Heavy blaster rifle
Non-Scalper Price: $20 dollars
* 4-LOM looks near-perfect. Being a protocol droid with a head modeled after the Gand species, 4-LOM contains a great mixture of both droid and alien in his design. While the figure is completely new from the waist up, 4-LOM does reuse the legs and possibly pelvis of C-3PO. This is accurate to the film and the in-universe lore, so I can dig it. The plated armor features some excellent detailing and a great paint job that captures the look of the droid bounty hunter.
* One of the coolest features is the functioning piston hinge on 4-LOM's elbows. Unlike C-3PO, who featured non-articulated elbows, 4-LOM has a piston that is on a balljoint which attaches into a groove on the forearm. Moving the elbow joint in and out makes the piston function. Very, very cool design!
* 4-LOM is a LOM series protocol droid featuring a head based off of the appearance of the Gand species, this explaining his insect-like appearance and his resemblance to Gand bounty hunter Zuckuss (whose names were switched in the vintage Kenner line). The paintwork and sculpt of the head is incredible, especially the detail on the eyes.
* Want to know something else cool about the eyes? 4-LOM's eyes are translucent and green, just like the movie prop helmet. It's tough to see but shine a bright light around the figure and the eyes glow a brilliant green.
* The figure features a very worn and battered paintjob that makes the droid look very worn and rusty. Hasbro went all out here and did an excellent job of capturing the droid's appearance. He's really in need of a good oil bath, isn't he?
* The blaster rifle has no paint applications on it, which makes it look kind of cheap. Most figures lately have features some excellent paint applications on their blasters and other accessories, so the lack of anything on 4-LOM's is kind of frustrating.
The only other 4-LOM collectible I've reviewed is the Micro Machines Mini Heads 4-LOM.
