YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My 48-C, graded an 80 due to an almost invisible crease in the top corner and a tiny bit of biro on the back but it's a beautiful piece. I bought this one as my first ever figure as a kid was Zuckuss on Empire card.

Revenge proof.

Until I get mintier ones here's a split bubble tri-logo and a couple of coin offers.

Ok, not vintage but I love him, Gentle Giant 12" 4-LOM.

Wow - some lovely examples of Zuckuss you have Dr_Ball! Strange how those bootlegs kind of get the head and torso right, but the limbs are way-off. Really great MOC and Revenge proof.

Here's my childhood Kenner 77 back ROTJ Zuckuss, the cardback and bubble (75% attached) are original to the figure.
Of the figures with unique weapons I always thought Zuckuss had the coolest gun!

That's amazing! I wish I still had my childhood Zuckuss.

The polish bootlegs use mostly Biker Scout limbs.

Thank you - it's been fun archiving each childhood figure and I'm so glad I kept the card backs and bubbles.

I see the biker scout influence now... knee caps are a giveaway.

Some great Zuckuss posts, everyone! I can't add to the carded samples, but here are some loose variants:

Moulded matte grey plastic heads at each end, metallic grey heads in the middle.

Second from left, circles on back of knees and ankles, and body the same shade of grey as the limbs. The other three figures all have limbs that are a different shade of grey to their bodies, whether through a genuine colour difference or discoloration, I couldn't say.

And another 'circles' variant in my main cabinet:
