The Chief is the best Ewok ever. Sculpt and paint are excellent. The scale is correct, Teebo was a giant, taller than most humans. Ball jointed head is the way to go, and Hasbro promised more new ewoks next year. Let's see how they follow through.

I only paid $5, so that wasn't a problem. Hasbro figures are abundant, so don't hesitate to wait for a sale.

I won't mix him with older ewoks, as it looks out of place, but it's okay, I'll start a new ewok village!

Speaking of scale, isn't Rappertunie a little large?

Rappertunie does seem pretty oversized, though not many good shots of him with others exist.

That said, I can't say I agree on waiting for sales...  As much as I would love a good price on it, if you want it I wouldn't pass up a figure hoping to get it cheaper.  I haven't seen a Chirpa on the pegs in at least a few weeks if not over a month.  He certainly seems to not be rotated as much as others in that wave have been.  About the only Endor figures I see are Jerjerrod, 3PO, and the smattering of DSG's still shipping out...  Beyond that, I haven't seen Chirpa making the rounds heavily like others.

I loved Teebo for what he was, but given Chirpa's stature and Hasbro's new direction with Ewoks, I could stnad a resculpt of all current Ewoks at this point...  Save maybe the Glider Ewok, just to save buying another one of those.
