PostSubject: Calling All Gamorrean Guard Axe Experts – Axe Identification   Sat May 19, 2012 10:41 pm

Hi all,

I own a rubbery V2 B Gamorrean Guard Axe.

However, as I recall, not all Gamorrean Guard Axes were rubbery. Some were stiff. But, I am not 100% sure. (That was a long time ago...)

I recently picked up a Gamorrean Guard with an axe. The silver axe paint is worn off. The axe is stiff, but bends well—won't snap. The staff sinks when placed in water.

The staff resembles a V3 B. I see numerous plastic blobs on the wood portion below the axe.

Another positive sign is the axe blade has 5 dents. (See photos.)

Even though the paint wearing off could be “age” or “play” related, it could be a bad REPRO paint job.

I am leaning to good on this one, but a second opinion is always helpful.

Thank you very much. I love this Forum!!

I'll compare the finer details of your pics with my examples, but based upon the fact that yours is made of plastic & sinks in water it's potentially good IMO.
I'm sure others will chime in. Very Happy

I've checked my Gammy axes & I don't have one the same as yours. However, as I said previously, hopefully others members will chime in. If you don't get a response, try asking the question again here: http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t3957-the-official-fotm-thread-gamorrean-guard

Hi cantina_patron,

Thank you for detailed search. Never easy. I appreciate the time you took.

All the weapons I collected from the 1980s can be quickly categorized. (I have a basic 77 figure loose collection with a few additional weapons.)

I've compared my new axe to TIG photos and others off the internet; my new axe is not falling into known variants.

The axe is now in limbo. That is a safe place for it.
