On Friday the 1st of May, Hasbro held a live stream on their Hasbro Pulse Facebook channel hosted by Patrick Schneider and Eric Franer. The 55 minute show was a mix of unboxing of product that is about to hit shelves - mostly around The Child - as well as reveals for the Star Wars lines for Autumn 2020.
In the Vintage Carded line celebrating the 40th Anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back will be a two pack of 4-LOM and Zuckuss.
Both will be individually carded on Kenner inspired cards and inserted into an outer box. To reflect the original Kenner line, the figures are mis-named. The figures are also repainted in what the Hasbro Team are calling the Kenner Decor line (as started with Boba Fett last year). 4-LOM certainly has lighter eye tone while Zuckuss is a lot lighter in the brown like his Vintage counterpart. This too is an Amazon exclusive.

STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 6-INCH 4-LOM AND ZUCKUSS Figure 2-Pack (HASBRO/Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $49.99/Available: Spring 2020) When Kenner first produced the 4-LOM and ZUCKUSS figures, the names somehow got reversed. In this STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 6-INCH 4-LOM AND ZUCKUSS Figure 2-Pack, the original packaging has been recreated – switched names and all. Fans and collectors can imagine scenes from the STAR WARS Galaxy with this figure 2-pack, inspired by STAR WARS: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK and featuring quality detail and multiple points of articulation. STAR WARS fans and collectors can display these highly poseable (4 fully articulated limbs) figures, featuring premium deco, in their action figure and vehicle collections. Includes 2 figures and 2 accessories. Available for pre-order exclusively at Amazon.

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force) and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
