Attakus Gamorrean Guard Statue

June 16, 2011

I’ve had my eye on this statue for quite a while, but never convinced myself to pull the trigger until recently. Like most Attakus Star Wars statues, this can be had for quite a bit less than retail (which I believe was $450 when it came out a few years ago). However, it hasn’t plummeted in price the way pieces like the Attakus Oola or Bib Fortuna have. I ended up paying $189 for a new in the box example, which is more than I paid for Oola and Bib combined. Still, I don’t feel like I paid too much, especially when you consider that high-end 1/6 scale figures sometimes retail for more than that these days.

This is a very impressive statue. Many Attakus pieces have problems with their human likenesses (or perhaps I should say that they opted for a more stylized look instead of trying to recreate the actual actors’ appearances). But with an alien character like this, that’s not an issue. Indeed, I think they captured the look of the Gamorrean Guard perfectly. The detail work is incredible, from the fluffy fur of the loincloth to the texture on the armor and skin. And the paint is impeccable as well. I really have no complaints.

The Attakus Star Wars statues are 1/5 scale, so they’re a nice size, if not quite as big as one of Sideshow’s Premium Format statues (which are 1/4 scale). This is about 15″ tall, and its girth makes it seem particularly hefty. I’d certainly be interested to see what Sideshow could do with a Gamorrean Guard PF, but they’ll have their work cut out for them, as Attakus has set the bar pretty high. I’m not all that impressed with the work Sideshow did on their 1/6 scale Gamorreans (which is why I don’t have any yet).

Unfortunately I simply don’t have the room to display all of my Attakus statues together. Someday I’d like to be able to display them all, including the Attakus JabbaLeia, and Salacious Crumb, and also get the other pieces I’m missing like Han in Carbonite and C-3PO. But at the moment, the only place that might even remotely be able to accommodate them all would be the kitchen table, and I don’t think my wife would take too kindly to that…

    I love Attakus although i find them very expensive in comparison to Sideshow. I agree completely that their aliens are superb and quite underrated IMO.

    That is stunning. Where did you dig that one up? I would seriously consider adding this to my collection as well.
