Vintage Sigma Ceramic Gamorrean Guard Mug

November 19, 2010

A few months ago, I wrote about the Gamorrean Guard figural mug that Applause put out in the mid 90s. But that was actually the second Gamorrean Guard figural mug that had been produced, the first being this one that Sigma released in 1983. There’s something a little strange when they make two figural mugs of a character like this and none of Jabba himself, but I guess we’ll just have to overlook that for the moment.

I definitely prefer this one to the Applause version. The sculpt is better and while the paint on the backside is kind of rough with very obvious brush marks, overall I think it’s better than the Applause version as well. It does have a bit of a lazy eye thing going on, however. It’s a bit smaller than the Applause version as you can see below.

    I have one of these from when I was a kid. What is it worth? Mine has a slight chip in the nose and a hairline crack in the handle. I’m the original owner though.

      Not a huge amount I’m afraid. Generally searching eBay completed listings can give you an idea of what they are worth.
