Question About Ewok Battle Wagon - Pls Help!
« on: October 26, 2010, 02:30 PM »
I hate to clutter up the forum with another thread, but I wasn't sure where else to post this.

I have a burning question about the Ewok Wagon that I have tried to research exhaustively but to no avail. It's really bugging me, so I am hoping someone that has one of these can help answer this:

RE: the side panels -are they exactly the same? I mean, literally.

If you look closely, you can see there is a groove at one end of the panel. It seems to me that both grooves should face inwards, but on the one I bought loose, the groove faces in on one and out on the other. It seems very odd Kenner would have sculpted it this way, unless they were really trying to cut corners and save money. Is there truly a "left" and "right" panel? Or are they identical?

I have looked at the photo archive on JTA and it appears they have one facing in and one facing out on the one pictured. (IE: seems to support the fact that they ARE identical)

Also, I have been scanning eBay auctions for months now, and although I have seen numerous auctions for side panels (there are 2 listed right now), I have never seen the one that I "think" I would need.

It seems to work ok - I can affix both panels in the correct orientation on mine, it just bugs me about that end groove. It's too assymmetrical.

Anyone have a clue on this? TIA!

Both grooves are on the same side, seems they just used the same mould.

Thanks a lot, that is what I had pretty much figured too. Weird choice on Kenner's part, but one less piece I need to procure, so that's cool. :)

I got a kick out of this because that's the kind of detail that would bug me too.   ;)
