You're showing your age Brent - those of us who were under the age of 12 in 1983 love Ewoks.  I hope they make them all!  And as they make more and more Ewoks, I hope they re-paint the Ewok Village and throw a few new pieces in.

Hallelujah, don't forget the Battle Wagon!  :P

When attempting to give Brent a hard time for no good reason, yes, we do.

I'm telling ya, Jar Jar with subtitles and less dialogue (or dialogue through interpretation like 3PO did for the Ewoks) would've improved him...  ;)

Ewoks rock man.  Midgets in bear suits?  Come on...  That's the kind of genius Barnum & Bailey made a fortune off of.

Brent has a hard enough time as it is--leave the poor man be.

I retract my earlier statement. 

BTW, I steadfastly refuse to purchase a spirit Anakin figure with a Hayden head on it.   >:(

I'm almost with you on that one, except that I'm a sucker and will buy it even though it sucks.

I don't blame Hasbro though - I blame George Lucas for bringing it to life.

I can agree with that, Hasbro is simply making the most out of an opportunity presented to them by GL.  Still, I ain't buying.

Great wave! I'll get the 'Wok 2-Pack, Spirit Anakin, Ewok Village R2, and maybe McHan.

Ever since Episode One I've come to realize that Ewoks are really not that bad.

Sweet mother of... this wave is incredible.  Now, I've been waiting on images of the A-Wing pilot more than any other figure... it looks wonderful, but I think Hasbro has used some creative license there.  I'd have rather they update the familiar look of the POTF2 and vintage versions:

It's a semi-easy enough fix...  Part of me thinks Hasbro was wanking the fans a bit with the creative license and giving us Tycho...  Kind of skipping "reality" and going for EU instead.  Maybe they just didn't have good ref material though too, but I'd think LFL would have that readily available since ROTJ was pretty heavily production photo'd for that stuff.
