They have been hinting and saying something about an Ewok multi pack for years now as Jeff pointed out...as long as they do a new Lumat and an updated Teebo everything else is gravy (Wompus!)

Adam Pawlus. That is a name I have not heard in a long time... A long time.

Princess Kneesa & Chukha-Trok as a 2-pack?  I'm thinking online exclusive.  That would allow for a smaller run, and I can't see Target or WalMart going for something like that.  Methinks Adam Pawlus might be the person to inquire with about this....

They didnt indicate that it would be a 2-pack, they just said an exclusive.  Based on what they've discussed before, this could be the Ewok multipack thats been waiting for release for a few years now.

Lumat is confirmed for next year, Teebo is rumored for eventual release as Hasbro said they would like to update the remaining vintage figures.  Oochee and Widdle are also up for release, possibly in this Ewok exclusive as well.  As for Wompus, this is the only site I've seen him mentioned on - so I am wondering if he is even on Hasbros radar - is there a wiki page for him?  I googled his name and only found him mentioned on JD...

"Wompus" goes back a long time here...

and finally..
10.  "Ewok Warrior" - Ewok Village

Take that last one and repaint/re-hash him 4 times as follows:
 
A) brown/tan with short spear
B) gray/black with 'rock-on-a-stick' club
C) reddish-brown with bow/quiver
D) dark brown with long spear

Just like this:


Call them Lumat, Romba, Warok, Wompus, or whatever the heck you want just give me some more Ewoks!

He's the Ewok with the gray/black fur, green hood and "rock-on-stick" weapon. Second from left in the pic above.

He may have some sort of proper LFL name, but I have no idea what it is, so I named him Wompus.  7 years later, he still doesn't have a figure.  I think we should change that... though I know fully well they won't call him Wompus if/when he makes it out.  (He'll always be Wompus to me.)

And yes, he is on Hasbro's radar.  He's been on the JD Wishlist many, many years now and I personally have had a few conversations with Hasbro about him at past Toy Fairs. They know who he is... I made sure of that. ;)

Well that explains why I couldnt find a wiki page, I didnt realize you named him.  :P  At least Hasbro will know who the character is if he makes the top ten list.  What about Lumat?  If he makes the top ten, will he be replaced by a main Ewok character or a backgrounder like "Wompus"?

Why not start a campaign for Wompus? He can be the next Ice Cream maker guy.

I want the dead Ewok, with built in sound feature...plays that sad music.

It's still strange they've never made the horn blowing Ewok. Or the victory drummer, since they made the drum set (half-assed set in the accessory pack).

If Lumat makes the top ten list, who do you guys want to see replace him?  Another ROTJ Ewok, or one from an EU source?

If its going to be ROTJ, Widdle would be a good choice, seeing as Hasbro said they were going to update his figure, but never did...

Bumping this up.  I was in the store and saw the new LEGO set "Ewok Attack", and I noticed that it features one Ewok that we haven't gotten from Hasbro.  This one is called Tokkat, and it could make for a good Hasbro Star Wars addition to their Ewok offerings.  Lumat certainly seems to be in the proverbial "parking lot", but you have to think that Hasbro also wants to touch on some new Ewoks, too.  Tokkat might be a good candidate.

That figure will be part of the Movie Heroes 2017 line. (Orange trimmed packaging with Jabba the Hutt's face on it.)
