The figure seems to be a new body that's a lot shorter than most figures wrapped in a faux-weathered faux-leather robe. Along with the classic gown for Leia, Zuckuss is one of very few figures covered in cloth which does a great job hiding his joints. You can't see the double-jointed elbows, the bend-and-swivel wrists, or the laterally moving hip joints. Thanks to this design, he can hold his rifle like in the movie with the left hand gripping the trigger area and the right hand wrapped around the barrel. The fake-weather-printing looks wonderful, and the gloved hands look really good. So does the head - there's a lot of detail here, with lots of gizmos and tubes and just about anything else you might want. Hasbro and presumably Lucasfilm/Disney seem to have used significant reference to make this figure look good, with just dreadful skin on the head being recreated to look even better than your imagination thought.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth. Disney Stores have had it for as little as $9.99.
