I recieved this Gamorrean Guard in a lot a few months back and he fell apart when my daughter picked him up! having never had this happen before i did a little research and am guessing he has not been welded, he is a Macau figure and as info on this is pretty vague i thought i would create this topic to hear your thoughts is this quite common or rare? and maybe see some other examples, cheers guys!

just another simple day in the life of a gamorrean guard under jabbas rule Smile

Cool figure! The process of fixing the figure together is called sonic welding, it's something to do with using high frequency acoustic vibrations to bond the figure together, or something along them lines. Naturally every now and then the odd figure may miss this process, but I imagine it would be a reasonably rare accurance.
I saw a guy flogging a non-sonic welded Luke farmboy once, it was the orange hair version aswell!
Also thought you might like this AFA Han Bespin

So in general I'd say you have a reasonably rare figure, I'm not sure if it would have any great value, I've found that factory error figurestend not to attract a great deal of value, but it depends on who wants it I guess.
Interestingly though, aside from the lack of welding the figure looks from the photo's to be in excellent condition with pretty much zero wear, which is quite an achiement in it's self for a Gamorrean Guard.
Good find!

thanks for that! yeah i read up on the sonic welding and just thought it was a neat little find, i'am sure there are many other examples and maybe we will get to see some others soon? it's always cool to have something unique and yeah he is in excellent shape so thats a bonus!

Dismembering Razz i bet you treat your figures alot better these days! i used to play with my figures out in the dirt and trees of our garden and there may have been the odd amputation but certainly no severe dismembering!

it would be neat to have a full set of non welded figures for some mix and match imagine the possibilities geek

I have two jawas that are non-sonic welded.

Kenner Version:

Lili Ledy Version


In my opinion, they are pretty hard to find and can (at times) go for a nice price as well. The cool factor is pretty high as well, due to their insides showing... Very Happy

Is this why so many EV-9D9 arms pop out of their sockets? Smile
