Can't wait to get these guys in 3.75". These guys seem to be the first thing in SW ever to hit 6" before having a 3.75" version. I might still pick up the 6" version since he does look like Deadpool's best friend.

But then I wonder why the resistance soldiers by this point would not wear armor.....if criminal organizations do?

Again i was thinking what if we see them very early in the movie something like this
after the crawl we get the usual spaceship battle but its a First Order star destroyer chasing down a Guavian freighter or battle cruiser (maybe got too close and The First Order are still trying to remain secret) and then it gets "caught" and the storm troopers board just like in ANH and instead of the Darth Vader entrance its Capt. Phasma that enters the ship. it would be a whole homage to ANH (JJ said it was his fav in an interview). I mean it looks like we see them running in a ship under fire in that split second in the trailer.

I don't know that it does look more advanced to me. I mean, I guess you could say it's more compact but it's hard to know without really knowing what it does.

TK114
09-22-2015, 05:08 PM
I would say its less advanced than a Stormtrooper. This helmet has tons of exposed circuitry on the faceplate that would be easily damaged and no eyeholes, so when that circuitry gets damaged and the heads up display quits working you are blind. It is also far to compact to have any form of adequate crash padding. The stormtrooper on the other hand has eye holes, so if his HuD quits working, he can still see though the lenses. The stormtrooper helm also has breath filtration systems and is large enough to accommodate all those electronics and still have room for crash padding inside.

In the Scenes that were shown, there were 2 of These guys, os it seems that they are more or less some Kind of security trooper. I'd say, buy up what you want because they seem to be troopers. If you're still unsure, then Keep them packaged so you can take them back after seeing the film.

That did the trick. Turns out they were a little sloppy when they glued his shoulder armor on. Some had seeped down into the top of the arm socket. After boiling I was able to get to it and cut through it with an x-acto knife. All better now.

Same here. Just got the Guavian Enforcer tonight and both arms seem to be superglued on. Since I'm just going to be displaying him, I'm not going to do anything to fix it.

Otherwise, I'm fairly impressed with this figure. It seems that the Guavian Enforcer has the highest amount of detail compared to any other TFA figure I've seen. Absolutely no paint errors whatsoever, and there's even some detail in the wires around the circle in its head. Compare that to the Resistance Fighter figure, which looks like a kid's paint-by-number coloring book drawing. The entire Hux wave looks more like the prequel-era figures in terms of detail, paint job and overall quality than previous TFA figures. I'm glad to see things improving.

I agree that it appears to be very modern sci-fi looking. As much as I love the 'lived in' look of the OT, and although I can see that TFA will try to match that look (in contrast to the PT shiny look), I'm glad to see some modern designs here and there with TFA characters. It definitely sets the tone that what we're watching is 30+ years in the future of ROTJ, in terms of design and fashion. I get the same 'futuristic' vibe from the new Snowtrooper uniform, especially the helmet. Definitely doesn't look like something designed during the ESB era!

I must be in the minority... I saw one of these at Target, and decided to pass. I just didn't think the figure itself looked that cool or fun or visually interesting. I can't really put my finger on why exactly. Perhaps it's the helmet... I do think it looks a little small compared to the card art.

I have 3 Guavian Bodyguards—1 is perfectly fine, the other two have have their right arms stuck. I tried boiling them—didn't work. They must have too much excess glue. I tried forcing them (after boiling), still wouldn't budge. I tried carefully carving/cutting the glued pieces apart, but the glue is too deep into the joint and socket. I guess there's no fixing these.

Ok, hypothetically-speaking, if I decided to cut the arm off cleanly with an exacto-knife, what would be the best and cleanest way of re-attaching the arm and still having full articulation and movement?

i would guess...if you did cut arm off w/ clean cut AND the arm peg is permently glued into the torso, i would suggest drilling small hole into arm peg thats now glued to torso. Insert a dowell or a nail (hacksaw off the nail head and point) and insert it into the drilled hole then glue it place, Dip ink or paint onto nail/dowell that sticking out from torso. Line up arm to toso allowing ink/paint to leave a marker onto the arm. Drill small hole into arm at the marker BUT NOT ALL THE WAY THROUGH then slide arm onto nail/dowel. If loose, wrap nail w/ thin layer of tape then attach arm.
You can do the opposite as well, where the nail/dowell is glued into arm the into torso. but 0bviously do not glue nail/dowell to both arm and torso, only one or the other. More i think about it, it may be better to have the nail/dowell glued to arm in case the original peg break loose from toso when you drill that hole. You can add more tape if that hole ends up too big for nail. hope that makes sense

i used to do this method when doing head swaps w/ early potf2 figs if boil/pop didnt work or it appeared the neck stems were different sizes. In those cases, i tried drilling into piece of neck plug that was stuck in the torso after slicing off the head. Also i found q-tips staffs worked well for dowells w/ potf2 heads

Thanks for the tips and suggestion, R1G4R3PO, but I managed to fix it earlier in the evening—using a method similar to the one you suggested. I accidentally broke off the figure's arm when I tried to forcefully move it. Afterward, I was able to fix the arm, and re-attach it by using a screw. This also returned full articulation to the once-permanently-glued-stuck arm. Here are photos that detail my procedure... http://forum.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data/500/thumbs/DSCN6701.JPG (http://forum.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data/500/DSCN6701.JPG) http://forum.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data/500/thumbs/DSCN6702.JPG (http://forum.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data/500/DSCN6702.JPG) http://forum.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data/500/thumbs/DSCN6704.JPG (http://forum.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data/500/DSCN6704.JPG) http://forum.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data/500/thumbs/DSCN6706.JPG (http://forum.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data/500/DSCN6706.JPG) http://forum.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data/500/thumbs/DSCN6712.JPG (http://forum.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data/500/DSCN6712.JPG) http://forum.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data/500/thumbs/DSCN6715.JPG (http://forum.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data/500/DSCN6715.JPG) http://forum.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data/500/thumbs/DSCN6719.JPG (http://forum.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data/500/DSCN6719.JPG) http://forum.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data/500/thumbs/DSCN6720.JPG (http://forum.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data/500/DSCN6720.JPG)

I bought 2 of these guys last week. I opened one and kept the second carded.

I also have the issue of the stuck arm. It won't budge at all, and I am ok with that. The last thing I want to do is break it off.

Hopefully the issue with the stuck arm will be corrected when the figure gets released in following waves.

So is this figure actually named "Guavian Bodyguard"? Just curious since the 6" figure is called "Guavian Enforcer". Are they different?

A heads up for those looking to customize these: The elbow joints from Mosep are almost *exactly* the same color plastic. Makes for some easy articulation. These still need to be cleaned up a bit, but...

What is SA 3.75"??

Initially I didn't like this Guavian figure, but it's sort of grown on me a little bit. I was looking for a reason to like it, and then decided the battle damaged metal grille on his face looks pretty cool. "General Hux" and "The Inquisitor" (from Star Wars Rebels series) is needed to complete the three set. Nonetheless at the moment i'm gonna give bother with this three set. I'll just keep General Hux (which i already have).

2 main scales for the SW figures. To put them in metric, 3.75" = 9.53 centimeters. 6" = 15.2 centimeters. Or to put it into terms of terrifying 8 legged spawns of satan:

3.75" = dinky buggers, about the size of a Huntsman.
6"= bigger, about the size of a golden orb weaver.

My thought on these guys is that they may be native to a specific planet/system.
Kind of like the Geonosians. Could be a planet/system called Guavia?

I hope we don't actually see them in another movie.
If it ends up playing a pivotal role, I'll change my tune. But if it's just another baddie, especially if it's system specific, let them serve their purpose in this film.
No need to rehash a character unless it's a bigger role.

Got 5 from online. 3 were fine. 1 had left arm stuck. 1 had both arms stuck. Maybe there is a 40-50% chance of having a problem. Since I'm army building, I can live with them and most would have their arms down since they can't cross arms anyway.

That double right arm sounds terrible. But when Nintendo did that to Meteroid amiibo, she sold for hundreds of dollars (MISP).

I think it was a squad of 6, along with their leader.

Besides the unusual mask, I wasn't totally convinced that these guys weren't droids or maybe cyborgs. Were there any telltale signs either way?

Not really, I just assumed they were part of the gang, like how Kanjiclub were all humans. I'd guess cyborgs could be very likely. We didn't see any die in a fantastic explosion or the at least dismembered in a way we could see what's inside them.

Well, since I can't edit my previous post, from Wookiepedia, it says:

The Guavian Death Gang's red-armored foot soldiers were recruited after swearing loyalty to the gang in exchange for a cybernetic augmentation. They were equipped with a mechanical reservoir that acted as a second heart, injecting a secret combination of chemicals into the soldiers' bloodstream, giving them a boost of speed and aggression. They communicated via high frequency data streams transmitted from the central disk in their faceplates. Enforcers were armed with the latest black market technology, such as the Tostovin Munitions percussive cannon.

Besides, i'm sure there's a small army of them somewhere in the SW universe. They look too cool to be a gang of only 6:D

A Black Series figure of the Guavian would do wonders just to show his onscreen costume in all it's glory for collectors, and allow a greater appreciation for just how cool his character-design really is I reckon. The 3.75" base series of all the TFA figures is so sad in the sculpt and paint aspects it ironically makes me wanna love them just for how pathetic they are:rolleyes:

You can't possibly be talking about this figure being sad. Out of all the TFA 5 POA figures, I'd put money on this being the best, and that actually is saying something. Yes its 5 POA, but it actually looks very nice, and so far, all of mine have had perfect paint apps.

I don't believe you, it cannot be so, it just cannot be:confused: unless we differ in what we deem "perfect paint apps". Either that or Hasbro is sending all the B-grade stuff to Australia? Here, 99 out of 100 figures i've seen are in sub-par condition technically speaking. Every one of them has obvious misaligned paintwork all over the figure and out-of-place specs and blotches here and there, and many times apparent abrasion/scuff marks, not to mention that the see-through plastic casing many times looks like it barely survived a roller-coaster ride. If what you say is true, then Australia really is the dumping-ground of the world.

I reckon he's just okay, but nothing to get my jollies over, the two-tone black&red doesn't give me anything to write home about. General Hux is my favorite from a perfectionist point-of-view. The matte gun-metal-black color of his suit and the overall simplicity and classiness of his costume just looks very slick. From an interesting stand-point the TRU Exclusive Poe Dameron is my favorite, i just wish they had included his helmet in the pack as a separate helmet-off item .

I'll take some pictures and see if the forum will let me psot them this time, but I have no splotches or misaligned apps on the 3 Guavians I've got. I can't speak for all the TFA figures, I mean I have a stormtrooper with a black splotch on the face and an unpainted right knee, but it was a gift, so I kept it since it was my third trooper anyway. I can accept what you mean about Hux, but he's still second best in my own opinion. Despite the general two-tone color shceme, I think the sculpt is the most intricately sculpted and it works with little imperfection here. Although, I have seen more than one person here with a stuck arm joint on the Guavian, so again, I might just have gotten lucky.

Following is the 4 Guavians i had to choose from when buying the figure, each with their unique blemishes/imperfections; i'd be interested to find-out which one you would have bought if you were faced with the same limited choice...

1: No imperfections whatsoever on the sculpt, but card and see-through plastic casing in shocking condition.
2: Quite a few obvious dark small blotches on chest area, everything else fine.
3: No blotches anywhere, but the protruding silver pouch on his left leg was of very faint grey color, whereas it's meant to have a more dense solid silverish look to it, and the paint was not completely up to the border of whatever that piece is.
4: Perfect card and see-through plastic casing, and the protruding pouch painted with nice dense metallic color to it, but on his right waist around the side is a 3-by-3 mm blotch of black paint which could almost be mistaken for being an extension to his black belt, but really isn't meant to be there, plus the faintest of two very mild blackish small blotches on his chest area.


Now, obviously i've already purchased him, but tell me which one you would have bought and see if it's the one i actually bought.

Well as someone who opens my figures because I've been into the hobby since I was a kid, I'd pick the first one. Long as the figure was fine, I'd take a dinged up card to get him. I'm not concerned with the after market value, it's something for me to enjoy on a shelf or enjoy light play with my children.

Maybe you might indulge me and care to pick again under the understanding that i'm a MOC collector. I'd still be interested to see if you pick the same one i ended-up purchasing.

Well from you're point of view, I'd initially guess the 4th one, but possibly the third one as a gray paint app that should be more silver doesn't sound like the end of the world, and without any other noticeable blotches, and you don't mention the card, it's probably the most well done paint job. .

FYI the card and plastic casing on the third one was all in great condition. But, you were right, I ended-up purchasing the 4th one.

My reasoning for purchasing the 4th (you might be interested to know) was that I deemed the two-tone black&red color of the Guavian figure a bit boring to the naked eye, thus I reasoned that the silver pouch became a stand-out feature of sorts, therefore it needed to be in prime-time condition.

With the 4th, since the black 3-by-3 mm blotch (which funnily enough was a neat square shape) was situated (luckily) right on the border of a section of his black belt, and discretely on the side of his waist, i reasoned (from a pick the best of a bad bunch point-of-view) that it was not so grievous, and the two barely obvious faint black blotches on his chest could pass as meant to be there:)

Awesome figure!I picked him up before the movie came out, not knowing anything about him just cause I liked his look.....pretty much for the same reasons I think Briareos from Appleseed looks cool. I wouldn't mind picking up a couple of more..especially if they ever release their leader. I noticed in the visual dictionary...that straight on shot , the helmet unintentionally looks like a light bulb.

Probably would've gone with 3 or 4 as well. I'm not the strictest MOC collector, but the overally quality of the bubble/card has a definite bearing on my decision. Unfortunately, the only FO Snowtrooper I'd seen in the wild had a slightly damaged bubble. i bought it and attempted to fix it at home. Got pretty lucky that it mostly buffed out.

They were running a deal where you could get 3 heads free with a low minimum purchase. I couldn't resist. The neck post is a smidge too small for the Guavian head, but that was no problem. It seems like it wouldn't be too hard to add some ammo pouches to the torso or the black shoulder gear to make it a bit more screen accurate, but either way, it's better than 5POA :)

If you want a bunch of these guys I guess it is important to decide if they all wear the exact same uniform or if each squad or individual is different.
If you want them the same, buying the figure is the easiest choice.

I intend to make at least one white one from the sketch. And I want them all to look a bit different. I found a couple of Joes (1 fake Joe) that do alright.
I made a mold of the head, stomach pouches, and leg cybernetic and added them to the Joes (I made the shoulder armour but it was easier just to craft it on from scratch). I modified them a bit so they look different (upside down pouches, cybernetics). If I had an extra Baroness, I would make a female version.
Here is a WIP so you can easily see the base figure I used.

Here's the "mostly finished product". Someone with better skills can take my ideas and run with them.

The white ones are from the concept sketches. I couldn't mix the colour of the uniform. I'll repaint the brownish one after I buy the correct colour. Mixing red and blue came out muddy. I need better paints.
