Gaak - I wish they would have used a different head set since wicket is in this set.

I thought that the text on the box said that the second Ewok's name was Dochee.

Apparently his name is "Oochee".

Some other random facts about the Endor set:

- the two Biker Scouts use different molds.  One is the VTSC version, while the other is the kit-bashed wide-leg version that was used for the SDCC Shadow Scout set.  Main difference is in the waist pieces.

- the AT-ST driver in this set (and the one in the Hoth set) uses a repainted head taken from one of the Tantive IV RFT figures.

After seeing this opened up, I only want the Ewoks from this set. I don't need officially sanctioned Star Wars®™© logs.

Did I mention I typed that at 6AM? :P

I argue this.

I saw this at Rebelscum as well and see *NO DIFFERENCE* between the molds-- much like the Cmdr. Neyo, the legs are spread apart slightly due to how it was packaged.  (Many molds will deform the legs when they sit these days.)  You'll notice there's a gap between the leg and the hip on the "wide leg" Scout, just like the Shadow Scout.  The molds are, as far as I can tell, identical-- it's just like "band hands," but for their crotches.   Basically the tab on the leg has been deformed by the packaging.

I concur with Adam.

If anyone buys one of these and wants to sell the repainted Ewoks for maybe $20 (?) please PM me.

I just need the At-St driver. Perhaps some type of WOW BP splitting thread is in order.

No can do - but if by some freak chance I end up with another one, the extras are yours. :)

I saw these for the first time today.  I certainly was tempted but it just doesn't fit into my new collecting mold.  My target had at least 4 or 5 of each of them on the shelves.  If they clearance down a bit, I may not be able to resist.

I actually bought one of these last Monday after swearing I wouldn't touch them with a ten foot pole.  The reason I went ahead and did so was because the box looked as if an anvil had been dropped on it and Target had marked it down to 34 dollars.  I did a close inspection of the contents and there was no visible damage to any of the figures or vehicles, so I figured, "Why not?"

Thank you whoever horribly maimed the Battle Pack with a forklift!  ;D
