Merging your post in here Paploo, and as you can see - there's some other fans of the idea of Unleashed Ewoks!  Especially Morgbug.   ;)

I'll have to see if I can dig up MisterPL's fine interpretation of Unleashed Ewoks for ya' too.  Some great stuff!  Hold on...

Here ya' go!

Oh yeah, count me as a big fan of Ewok Unleashed ::)

No offense to Mister PL's artwork, it's great, but geez people.  

Ideas for unleashed Ewoks:

-two pack picking lice off of each other
-solo ewok with soft middle portion (like JediMac) for hugging due to unbearable cuteness
-ewok on a spit roasting on an open fire

Seeing the new Luke, Chewie and CLone at TRU last night I jsut couldn't resist.  I'm making a concerted effort to make some space so I can display these properly.  I really love that Bossk too and I can't quit now

Chewie is nice, nicer than I thought he would be, I'm guessing the skimped on the base because he himself is mammoth in size

I really like the Clone, really well done, looks great and is in a great dramatic pose.

Luke is also nice but I'm not a big fan of how he is placed on the base.  Its a weird angle and how he's sort of leaning out of the base while there are large portions of the base still behind hi, its really hit and miss :-[

I just received my Chewie and Luke from Kebco on Wednesday, and I'm happy with these.  I know a lot of people don't care for the Chewbacca, and although I will admit that it is a little "extreme", I do like it.  Like Scott said, in person it looks pretty good I think.  I've been trying to stick to OT-only, since these things do take up a lot of room...but that Clone is pretty cool too.  I think I'll continue with just OT, my display space for them is already full...and I still want to get Bossk and the Tusken later this year.  Hmmm...what to pack away now for more room? :P

Jeez, now I feel guilty, cuz I have mine, from you (in a round about way).   I haven't opened them yet, but will soon.  

My basic opinon at this point is that pictures and in package just don't do these figures/statues justice.  I did not like the picture of the Chewbacca.  Now that I have that (heavy) figure, I really like it.  It's impossible to sculpt hair at the best of times and this is a neat interpretation.  I think they did an excellent job of the facial features as well.  This sort of reminds me of Chewie on the death star running with Han and firing backwards.  The face seems to be as animated as it should have been had Chewie not been just a costume in the original movies.  Well done.  

Luke looks fine too.  Haven't set him up like Scott, so can't respond to your comments.  Still think it's an odd choice for an unleashed figure  but hey, I bought it didn't I?

I feel bad that you haven't gotten yours yet either Mikey, that is strange.  Mine had been pending for quite a long time (couple months probably), and I finally e-mailed them to just politely ask what was up...they told me that they would all be shipped this week sometime, and actually my status went from "pending" to "shipped" the next day after I wrote them (last Friday).  I got them on Tuesday I think.  Hopefully yours are on the way soon.

I set Chewie up next to Han, it looks sort of neat, except for Chewie's bizzaro base...why not make it a piece of Falcon Decking or Death Star Floor...or cover him in snow and make him frozen Chewie...some more figures I want:

ANH Luke (After Obi-Wan bites it)
ANH Leia (Detention Cell Baby)
Hoth Han (Brown Coat)
Bespin Han (Toture Rack)
Bespin Luke (After he loses his arm, this should have been Luke #1)
Lando (Escape from Bespin)
IG-88
4-LOM
Zuckuss
Dengar (Got to have all of the Bounty Hunters)
Wampa (make it an exclusive)
Stormtrooper (obvious)
Snowtrooper (love that outfit)
Scouttrooper (this one too)
Royal Guard (this one double too)
Jabba (again Exclusive)
Amanaman (That latest Comic is awesome)
Lobot (so Lobot's Duplex gets another member)

You best back off with your desire to hug my cute self!  Sheesh, it was just a Muppet cookiee, man.  It's not like I sent you a tiger print thong, or sumthin'...   ::)

And how did you know that I had started using Patty's skin moisturizer to create that "soft" middle portion on myself?  That is what you meant, right...?  Soft like a baby's butt, I tell ya'.   8)

As for the actual Unleashed figures, if they pump out some more "hot Star Wars chicks" and Bounty Hunters, I may be tempted to pick up a couple more!   ;)

Hi Guys,

Just thought I'd make sure all you Unleashed fans saw this news item from GH.com:

First Unleashed Variant - RED Clone Trooper (Captain)

Luckily, I'm happy with my one Clone Unleashed statue and don't need the Red one...
