Hasbro: Star Wars Command Gamorrean Guard

Here is an orc I forgot to include in my Orc Army.  A friend pointed out that the Gamorrean Guard figure from the Star Wars Command series makes an excellent orc. I only have a couple of these figures.  Not enough for army building, but he does make a fine orc.  He is about 45mm.  He comes in the Rancor Revenge set which also includes a Rancor that works as a fantasy monster.

I remember thinking "why is there an orc in a sci fi movie" the first time I saw Jedi.   Well, I am glad for it now.

  2. Yes, good call on the Orcishness of my favourite space pigs. That Rancor looks pretty good too!

  5. The whole line is pretty cool and it's too bad it was so short lived.
    I mean, come on, Star wars Army Men! What's not to love?

  6. I've actually used a vintage Star Wars Gamorrean Guard as an orc with LJN's AD&D figures.
    Are you at all familiar with D&D-style gaming miniatures? How would those SW Command Gamorreans measure up to a heroic scale pewter miniature like Reaper's?

    1. Your guess is a good as mine. I am not into D&D style minis except in the rare cases where they are large enough to fit with toy soldiers.

    2. Well I'm less familiar with toy soldiers, I just know my DFC demons and gargoyles are a tad taller than my human heroes.
      I did a quick measure and a reasonable size for a "heroic scale" orc miniature would probably be around 1.5" tall without the base factored in. Are the SW Command Gamorreans close to that height?
