First, the 12" Zuckuss was a dissapointment being too skinny and with a human body (unlike earlier 12"alien releases where Hasbro would mould an inner garment to maintain the mystery of the alien character like Yoda and Jawa for example).
Second, the new Imperial Shuttle's paintwork/weathering is inaccurate making the whole ship being too dark especially the "neck" and the bottom section of the cockpit area. The weathering should be done like what it was being done for the POTF AT-AT walker several years ago. My friends and I agreed that the piece looks more like hasty work to rush production deadline.
Furthermore, the old ship had 9 screws all over the ship wherelse the new one has 29! Why? Since only minor resculpting was done to round off the edges of the wings/fins and the extra screws only spoils the surfaces of the ship. The back 'panel' can still be opened as it used to house the battery compartment for the vintage ship which is now just a flat surface. The panel that opens up to reveal the cargo area slips off too easily wherelse the vintage snaps tight. Hasbro didn't even bothered to change the description on the bottom of the new ship that says, " 1984, Kenner Products, Cinn...." since Kenner is no longer around as well as the office in Cincinati being closed for quite some time! Why can't Hasbro maintain it's QC and spend more time on accuracy (or the effort to like during the POTF period) on paintwork and sculpting?
Other toy companies are making an effort to improve their toys and packaging but Hasbro is taking the complacent road for their vehicles and 12" doll lines recently since they know that Star Wars collectors will splurge on their toys anyway inspite the lack of quality in sculpting, coloring and packaging their mechandise!
