A favorite of mine. The first Ewok figure I ever received, and I'm pretty sure I still have it, sans accessories of course.

A cool ewok figure back in the day.  Hopefully, I'll be able to find the modern one.

Love the CA92 feature, glad it's back, and a good figure to come back on...

the perfect contrast of the two eras, especially considering the new one is even part of TVC.

I think Logray was my first Ewok as well...  weird.  And probably my favorite as I didn't have the latter ones, and Wicket was small.  Logray seemed like a real warrior to me because he was bigger.

The modern figure is clearly as good as it gets pretty much.  The articulation, the sculpt, the gear...  hasbro has perfected the little fuzzballs, and I just now want repaints and gear changes.  I can't say, beyond the ones that narf the ATST, and making sure all are updated from their vintage counterparts, I'm pretty happy with Hasbro cranking out repaints and accessory swaps.  Like Rebel Pilots or whatever.  I just like something slightly new using the perfect library of molds they've got around now.

It really amazes me how different the scales of the vintage vs modern Ewoks are...

Yeah, the originals are really giants...  When you look at Wicket in the movie though, and the fact that Leia can easily pick him up and move him, that screams a lot about how small Warwick Davis was at that time in his life.  Carrie Fisher wasn't big by any means, but she moved him around like a doll.

One of the nice things abuot the modern line is, generally, they've been getting scale right for the better part since 1999/2000...  It's surprising how big/small some characters are though.  I think Amanaman was one of the bigger shocks for collectors.  Ewoks are others.

I really dig Logray as well. If the cost weren't so high I'd have grabbed several for customs.

Looking more at the card I think I may make some changes to mine. The headdress should have some more long braids/feathers hanging down from it. It's probably something it would have been hard for Hasbro to do and make them look skinny enough. The face paint app isn't entirely accurate either. Still a great figure though.
