View Full Version : QUESTION TO ALL ATTAKUS COLLECTORS

When I bought my 2 royal guards from the Attakus collection I recognized I got 2 different versions of the statue. Not from the outside ( they look identical ) but from their weight.

One royal guard seems to be massive and solid while when I had the box of the second in hand I first thought it to be empty as this one seems to be very little weight and hollow inside.

Now I wonder ... is this a variation - a production flaw ? How many of you guys have the heavy solid version and is there anybody who owns a royal guard that seems to be hollow because of his low weight ?

Just curious ... both statues were bought from the biggest german official Attakus reseller www.toy-palace.com (http://www.toy-palace.com) so there is no doubt they are both "real" ...

Looking forwart to your input !

I own 2 of these and have sold several. From all of the Royal Guards I've seen/had, they were all real heavy (solid fill). You can email Attakus directly at infos@america.attakus.com to see if they made 2 different types of this statue. Also, Attakus did make a 2nd run of these which was a Japan exclusive, numbered to 200 pieces. Maybe 1 of them you have is the Japan version and that version was hollow? I hope this helps.

Thanks,
Mike

Both were purchased pre-Japan-edition http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif
Well from a production view why fill them ... I would understand if they left out the "filling" as it is not visible wether or not it is filled but I am just curious if this is a one of a kind statue the way it is made or if there is more people having having a similar one in posession http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

That is weird, mine is solid and heavy.
These are cold cast porcelain, is there a technique to make these hollow with that material?.
Anyway, congratulations on your new statues Medusa.

Sounds like a flaw to me. I have both Jango and Boba and they are quite heavy. I'd drop Attakus an email and ask.

First time I ear of that kind of " problem " in the Attakus line.
I have 6 of their lines and 7th is coming. I have the Royal Guard and I get at least 5 in my hands if more, I never encoutered any weight difference.
As someone else said, contact Attakus directly. From my part I will ask them on a french board, they will normally answered by June 26th as they promised.

I got mine from Razor's Edge, and it's the US/Euro version. It's very heavy and feels solid. You probably have the Japanese version which has a more limited run and may be produced differently.
