That's definitely not been confirmed at this point, in fact, I don't think I've even heard of him on any rumored lists.  But I'm sure it'll happen eventually since we need a few more Ewoks, and he's one of the more obvious choices.  Maybe he'll show up later next year when the line is still being focused on the "collectors" before the final movie gets released.

I'll believe it when I see some pictures... I sure hope it's coming soon.

i made a custom chirpa from the new teebo, some paint and the head dress from the old chirpa. it looks good, but i would definitely like to have a production one.

Yeah, I remember hearing this rumor as well.  I think it would make a nice figure.  I also "heard" there was a possibility of an unamed Ewok and a baby Ewok.  I never actually saw the last 2 on a list.  Chirpa I have.

i find it surprising that we are getting a 12 inch Chirpa before a normal sized one.
Hasbro just messes around too much...

we do need ewoks though.
and as said Chirpa is a good choice.
i suggest getting all the vintage ones again, redone.

That may be a CHEWIE rumor...of course he was the one that wanted a two-pack with an Ewok hugging Han's leg  ;D

I see.  That's probably where I am getting that from then.  That would be kind of cool actually.  LOL!  The endor Han should have had that as an accesory :)

I will buy as many ewoks as Hasbro puts out.

Chirpa is no exception.  

There is always room to add them to your Endor diorama.

After all, they live there  ;)

We'll probably get an Ewok 4 pack at some point.  Hopefully they will ad in some cool Ewok stuff like gliders, boulders, logs, wooklings, etc.  Hope so anyway.  Of course nobody wants rehashes.

What good are a bunch of Ewoks without a Chief?  We need a Chief Chirpa figure right away!

I personally want each vintage Ewok redone to a Saga (Teebo quality) version, including Chief Chirpa.

After that, I'd like a female (with 2 or 3 color variations) with 2 Woklings, possibly also in color variations.  I'd also take:

Ewok with Imperial Rifle,
Ewok who sang while roasting Han
Ewok Hugging Solo's leg
Ewok with pipe
Ewok with battle horn
Ewok with "vine" accessory (You can hang the "vine" somehow, and the ewok  holds it and you let him swing into stormtroopers)
Ewok Catapult with Stone Axe Ewok
Ewok with Bolo
And the Ewoks who get hit by the AT-ST blast and one dies.

Yes, I like the Ewoks personally...  :)  And I'd take as many as I could get.

Honestly though, if they made a 4-pack of Teebo (repainted) with some plain hoods (In different colors though) with 2 spears and 2 bow/arrows then I'd be content.  To me that would be an ultimate army builder set.

if all 4 ewoks were different colors and all 4 hoods were different colors imagine the combinations you could create. (according to my calculations it should be 16)..but correct me if i am wrong
