Who Wants More Ewoks?
« on: October 9, 2012, 06:15 PM »
Anyone Ewoked out? (Brent can't answer this question)

Seems like we've hit critical mass on the little guys and I know my shelf is bursting with Ewok goodness.  As I said somewhere in another thread I usually buy 2-3 of each and swaps hoods with others.  The joys of universal necks and heads!

Who else do you want, who else needs to be done...or are you done?

I'd like them to continue to issue a Ewok-centric piece at least once a year. The pack-ins can be generic but I'd like at least a catapult with team, a few more archers, rock/bola throwers and various spear-chuckers. (Is that term allowed?)  :P

Plus we need that log reissue  :P

I'm with Jayson that I'd take a catapult...  I would be ok with a bolo one too...  I'm kind of done at that though, but the Catapult would probably be my only big Ewok want that I can think of really.  If they were 2-packs in the basic line I'd be a little more interested in randoms.  A nice distinctly black/light grey or white striped one would be high on my list...  repainted Wokling accessories would be cool too.

I'd ALSO kind of be interested in a spit/fire thing, as its own little accessory, maybe with an Ewok or something.  The little guy singing a song while he builds the fire perhaps, to cook up Han.  Give him a torch from the Sallah figure even.

I think I'm good for this year, but I know there's a few out there that I'd like to see done:

Kazak
Rabin
Tamat
Tokkat
The one elder smoking the pipe, or as I call him, "The Dude"
Keoulkeech was already done, but would be nice to see him released again in a non-EU pack.
There's also one Ewok that looked like s/he had mostly white fur

And some baby Ewoks that I just noticed the other night (minus the last one, which we have).

I'm having fun with the Ewoks, and I can't say I regret buying any of them. Count me in for a catapult as well...it's something I've been toying around with making (since it's basically string and sticks.

I would like to see at least all the Ewoks depicted on screen released, and I'm almost ashamed to say it, but I'd like to get Teek as well. I obviously didn't get that Disney thing that he was in.

I'd also like some Ewok set pieces as well...barbecue and whatnot.

Aside from the catapult, a Victory celebration drummer with drum set with removable imperial helmets....because really, I just want a source of imperial helmets. 8)

I'm tired of the 30th anniversary era molds they keep using and I don't own half the figures they've made using them.

Throw in some recolored woklings with the single carded Ewoks, too...since they are just unarticulated accessories.

With Lumat on the way in the web only wave, Hasbro is definitely going to be turning a major corner with the Ewoks.  And it's pretty amazing to look at the number of Ewoks we've gotten over the past 2 years!

Hasbro may want to dial it back a little bit from here on in.  Perhaps 1 carded Ewok per year, and a deluxe type offering:  catapults or gliders.  Or maybe even a set with the new(er) Paploo and the new Speederbike would be cool, too.

They could also consider doing sets with the Rebels on spits and a couple of Ewoks carrying each spit.  And even then, that might be stretching things.

It's sorta dumb but I'd really honestly dig seeing, somehow, a couple trees with logs...  If it were possible, and I think it is ultimately, it'd be cool to see 2 trees with ropes on branches holding logs you could smash your new Endor AT-ST with...  You'd barely need any weight in the the logs to knock it over even.  How can you beat an action scene like that?

Add the 2 waving at each other after they do it, and it's a set.  It won't happen, but it'd make a pretty slick little set around one of the new Walkers.  :)  I forget what the height is on the Ewok playset trees but might even be worth giving it a shot with some of those.

Ewok related items I'd like to see would include a catapult and a new improved Ewok village.  At this point, after I add Lumat to my collection, I think the only Ewok figure I'd like to see made would be an AT-ST Stomped-On/Smushed Ewok carcass figure.

Locked?  Probably just a misclick or something.

That's true.  Conspiracy time!

He probably teamed with Hasbro to make sure nobody could get toys this year.
