Totally agree...  $20 is pretty on.  New big and multiparty accessory and two "new" woks...  And the other sets still $15?  Does hasbro or Kmart get credit for this?  With all the collectors bashing both companies its hard to say who got this right.  I guess collectors can just take the credit for this maybe? :)

Hasbro didn't bother changing the slide from Toy Fair. What could have been.

Is that better or worse?  I can't tell.

I dig what we're getting, a lot.

Neither, just different.

Will somebody hurry up and take a picture of the back of the Ewok box already?!?  Be nice to get some names for those little fuzzballs...

Looks like the 'Chubbray' and 'Stemzee' reports are confirmed as the names of the 'woks...

StemZee sounds like a pothead. :x

Were those in the eu or Hasbro originals?

I can't tell - is this the same mold as the vintage cat or is it all new?

Parts of it are new for sure.  I can't be certain on the base, but I recall the original launching arm had a hook, which you inserted into a hole in the boulders.  This one looks to have a net/platform that the boulder sits on.

I found and bought this set today. I placed a store-pickup order for two sets, and the store had two more sets on the shelf. So either these are shipping in cases of four or my store got two cases of two.

EDIT: This was in Raleigh, NC BTW.

None of these in my neck of the woods yet.  And no shelf or peg tags, either.

Was told that my local store had them in stock so I ordered 2 with in-store pick-up - got my e-mail that my order was ready for pick-up, so I'm going to hit there tonight - fingers crossed!

No need to worry the store pick up works fine...  The set is a lil small but I think $21 isn't bad for it.

The ewoks are dreamy...  Love the teal hood.  Love the kinda calico deco on the one.  Nice set to finally have and the rock can haul some serious ass if you fire it right!

The rocks are rubbery so I wonder how they'll last long term but they're cool and its a well designed little toy that actually works probably better than they intended it to.  Very screen accurate too. :)

I have a Robin Hood battlewagon I am going to custom up for my modern ewoks and this will look slick nearby.

Sorry - should have said that I had my fingers crossed that one of the two is MIB - which as luck would have it happened to be the case.

They had two more sitting out on the shelf - so I grabbed a third to have a 2nd opener.

Very pleased with this set - and considering that we were paying Vintage prices for Wicket, Logray and Lumat all by themselves, getting two Ewoks and a catapult for $21 isn't that bad of a deal.
