Nothing on tap...  I have been hoping for a Warriors 4-pack that just redecoes Teebo, gives him 4 different colored plain (Wicket) hoods, and includes generic weapons like a bow/arrow, spear, axe, etc... 

That'd be an ultimate army builder set to me.

A new Wicket wouldn't hurt though, given the outrageous size of the current one when compared to "proper" scaled figures like new Leia figures.

I'd like the last of the Vinty's rounded out as well...

Yeah, I'd rather have ewoks, than half the garbage out now. All I see are figures i bought a billion ago, on new cards...

New figures is what we need.

Yeah, I agree - and why the heck in the TRU 4-pk did they put THOSE Ewoks in there - why not the Paploo from the POTJ AT-ST and a repainted Teebo?

I've never been a fan of ewoks in general, but I am an old schooler in that I'd like to see Hasbro finish off the rest of the vintage line in the modern era.  So let's start with a Chief Chirpa first and foremost, and then work our way down to Lumat, Romba, and Warok.  Throw in a new momma Ewok with her woklings for the hell of it too, while you're at it.

Then get back to the good stuff!   ;)

Snively, I love you.  My general opinion is that Ewoks suck.  And they do.  That said, agreed, finish the vinty line.  Also agree with Chewie, why those Ewoks?  Why not Paploo and the repaint for Teebo.  Then the pack might have actually sold, rather than sitting and collecting dust for the next 3 years.  It's always tempting to pick up the scout trooper and speeder bike, except the rest and therefore most of the pack sucks.

Funny, but it looks like those Kubrick collectors are getting way more Ewoks than the 4" collectors.  I think they've only got like 25 or so figures in that line so far, and Hasbro's got well over 500 now.  They'll have 3 different Ewoks already, and Hasbro's stuck on what, 4?  That's pathetic.  Not that I like Ewoks, but pathetic nonetheless.
