Vintage Collection Gamorrean Guard Figure by Hasbro

November 30, 2010

Hasbro’s Vintage Collection has been pretty kind to Jabba fans so far. Not only did we get a brand new Jabba and throne (including a new Oola figure), we’re also getting a number of other characters from Jabba’s palace. One of the most widely requested was a new Gamorrean Guard, and for good reason — the previous versions just don’t fit in with the higher standard set by Hasbro’s more recent releases. This is the third completely new Gamorrean Guard figure that has been made (the first two being the vintage figure and the Power of the Force/Original Trilogy Collection figures (which are the same figure with different paint jobs).

I’d really have to try hard to find anything wrong with this figure. It’s got impressive articulation, it’s well sculpted and painted, and even the soft goods “fur” loincloth looks pretty good. It also comes with three different weapons, which is nice since it allows you to buy multiples of the figure and equip them differently. It’s a shame that Sideshow’s upcoming 1/6 scale Gamorrean doesn’t look this nice (and won’t be as well articulated from the way things look). Hasbro really hit this one out of the park, in my opinion.
