Why We Need Disney To Repaint The New "4-LOM" To Be 4-LOM

Posted by Paul | April 27, 2017 at 07:51 PM ET |

The 2007 TAC 4-LOM (30 41) figure has ALWAYS bothered me. He always looked too chunky for my tastes. I was disappointed when he was reissued without any tweaking in The Vintage Collection three years later. But as soon as I had the Disney Droid Factory "4-LOM" Build A Droid figure in my hands, I knew Disney got it right. Good friend Josh M. knew this too and repainted one of these Disney Droid Factory sculpts in the same color scheme of 4-LOM. See for yourself how much improved and screen accurate the character looks utilizing this sculpt. Josh, I need this!Please tell me how much!
