The Official Ewok Village Thread
« on: February 9, 2003, 12:57 PM »
We really really really need a Saga Ewok Village!

I can remember as a kid always wanting the Ewok Village, but about the time I actually started looking for one in flea-markets, the GhostBusters Fire Station playset came along :D.

Well, as we speak I've got my Fire Station set up in my room (including my Ecto 1, Stay Puft man, and a few figures), and now it's time I finally get my Ewok Villiage.

This is the thread where I bump it every 5 minutes until somebody responds in complete agreeance, or maybe not, but I really want a Saga Ewok Village... I can see it now, rehash or entirely new... I'll take it, even if its a insanely expensive FAO exclusive... It could come with a pack-in C3PO God & Throne, or even 4 or 5 ewoks from the past lines...

Please Hasbro... make my day. Make the Ewok Village.

I've got the Vintage one, and it was certainly one of the best playsets ever released.  I could definitely go for a new one though, preferably an all-new sculpt which would be equal to, if not better than, the Vintage version.

Of course, we would also need a few more Ewoks to inhabit such a playset...  ;)

I have the old one too. Seeing that Hasbro is coming out with remakes of most of the vintage, it can be possible to release a new version.  If they do, they should pack in a few new Ewoks to go with it.
Man, I wonder what the Saga box would look like?  8)

I found and bought the vintage Village on ebay.  I couldn't believe I found it at a reasonable price where a bunch of morons didn't bump up the price to some insane price.   Still, I would love to see an updated version, but like others, I would buy another even if it was the same version.   We definitely need new ewoks and still need some of the vintage ones remade.  After seeing the rehash POTF Han & Leia that they will be releasing in a SAGA card on the Hasbro site today, I wouldn't mind seeing even the vintage ones that haven't been updated released on a SAGA card.  I open all my figures anyway, so it would just be great to have a Romba and the others.

I won't rest until I get an Ewok Village, but I could take a dream-less doze if Hasbro remade us the vintage Ewoks... I wouldn't mind getting the Endor 'Battle Wagon', even though it's EU...

I still want an Unleahsed Ewok the 2nd most though...  >:(

I don't collect vehicles and playsets so I am not really bothered if they make one or not.
That said if they do make one, they will have to bump up the number of ewoks to be made otherwise it will look like a ghost village.
IMO, more Ewoks=The Dark Side.
Don't you all remember the classic line from TPM?
Yoda; "Ewoks are the path to the dark side. Ewoks lead to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffferrrrrinnngg!"

I'd love seeing figures of the 'Caravan of Courage' movie made... Lots of great Ewoks there just begging to be immortalized in plastic.

As far as Ewoks being evil goes...  ::)

This is a great topic and I ressurected it from days past because I am in favor of many more playsets being made.  

Would you all want it to be exactly like the vintage version?  Or an all new mold?

I would prefer an all new mold, especially if they made the plastic look more realistic.  And a couple more Ewoks would be awesome, they could also include the shield generator bunker from 1997 by simply packing it in.  It would definitely add to the play value for the kids.  Hell, put several figures in this:  clean Scout Trooper, CT Stormtrooper, new Ewok and Endor Rebel 3rd head variant.

 :P

I'd definately like a Vintage, but I'd prefer a new one - more detailed, lots of pack-in's, etc.

Good to see this thread brought back!

We really really really need a Saga Ewok Village!
Well, as we speak I've got my Fire Station set up in my room (including my Ecto 1, Stay Puft man, and a few figures)

HeHe, I had mine out pretty recently too, i had to put it away do to visitors in the guest room.

i ownt he Ewok Village in its first incarnation, and if Hasbro simply rereleased it, i'd be happy to have another, i thinkt he only true improvement i'd really like are treetops for the ...trees...
maybe some clear plastic fires for the pit.
an exclusive ewok figure coem with it...

thats all i guess..

I agree the trees need some tops and the clear fires would be neat...you could light them up with some small lights
