Stormtrooper from "Dutch Garisson"

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

several years ago I got the chance to get my hands on some of the rare minfigs with pauldron and back printing from the Durch Garisson.

They always were kind of a special item in my collection, but now that I want to reduce and sell my Star Wars Collection, I wonder if anyone ever saw someone selling them and could give me a hint, what they are worth?

It is a normal stormtrooper with a back printing with the Logo of the Dutch Garisson and each minifigure has a different colored pauldron on his shoulder.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

Greetings Hendrik

Sorry, have to correct something:

3 of them are actually from the German Garisson, and one from the Dutch one..

Will post pictures later..!

I've never heard of these nor have seen them. Do you know if there's any supporting material that showcases these? I'm not doubting you, but it would be easier to sell something like this with some type of info that substantiates it.

Lego seems to make things like this periodically, but it's hard to track because they're one-shot items.

Did you mean these Sir von Lego? I know the first three were commissioned from The Litte Arms Shop by LEGOLAND Germany and given to the German 501st Garrison in 2007. As far as I know the one on the right was made for the US 501st garrison.

Yes!!

I don't have the US one but instead a Dutch one from Dutch Garisson..

Can you imagine (or give me a hint) if they were ever sold somewhere?

I haven't seen them for a while, but they were for sale on eBay some time ago. I haven't seen the Dutch Garrison version before... :wub:

The guy that runs the little arms shop from the Netherlands, Hein-Jan Kemperman, is / was a 501st member and asked to make a run of these minifigs many years ago. According to him these are 'official' minifigs but I have never seen any evidence of that. So from my point of view these are custom minifigs with a printed backside and pauldron. They were sold exclusively to 501st members but a few made it to the general audience it seems.

Being MOCs / customs I guess it's up to the buyer what they are worth, but I wouldn't overexaggerate the value of these...

Custom SW minifigs normally go for €25 - €40, depending on the parts used and the print. For a non-official LEGO minifig I'd say €150 is rather excessive...

40 EUR or less would be ridiculous.

These are "semi-official" products like the promotional bricks von Legoland Germany with printing of German Garisson on the back.

Back in 2007, they were about 150 EUR, so should be more now, right?

Yes they are semi-official, so they should be worth a little more than regular custom figures. But not everything increases in value. I would say 150 EUR for each would be top. Like I said mine were around 80 EUR each last year and that was for a full set.

Yes I have one of each of the 6 variations. I bought them all from one collector.

Hi,

What is the 6th variation? Us, Dutch, 3x German? I am only counting 5 in total.

What is the 6th one?
