GAMORREAN GUARD Gamorrean Guard Return of the Jedi
Repaints aside, the VC21 Gamorrean Guard from The Vintage collection is only the third 3 3/4-inch action figure produced of one of the most popular creatures in Return Of The Jedi, and hands down, this one is the best of the three. For the first time we were offered a Gamorrean with a removable helmet, a fun fur loin cloth and enough weapons to army build. As such, this figure would never stay on the peg for very long, even when it was repacked in future assortments.

Released in November 2010, the third wave of figures in The Vintage collection focused on characters from Return of the Jedi including the VC21 Gamorrean Guard, VC22 Admiral Ackbar, VC23 Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight / Endor Capture), VC24 Wooof, VC25 R2-D2, VC26 Rebel Commando (first version) and VC27 Wicket action figures. Both Yoda and Wedge Antilles were originally intended to be a part of this wave but both were shuffled to later assortments. Many of the figures in this wave were re-released on chase variant Revenge of the Jedi cards in the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive Revenge of the Jedi Death Star Set and later in stores on the same cards, only this time sporting a send away sticker and mail in order form.

About This Figure
  • Gamorrean Guard contains no re-used parts.
  • Straight from the package, the loin cloth on the VC21 Gamorrean Guard has a mind of its own. For collectors looking to make it more screen accurate without actually damaging the toy, we recommend using the Water Treatment method to manipulate the fun fur.
