Welp, it took me about two months to find a Wicket with good paint and an original spear, but that finally happened this week.  With that, I'm done with Droids and Ewoks outside of waiting for Mark Poon to make Bondo and Chiuhr...

It's possible I missed something, but outside of a few esoteric variations that I'll track down eventually, this was the last 3.75" scale figure I can think of that I was missing in the history of the Kenner and Hasbro lines. 

My vintage checklist is down to the rarer of the mini-rigs, a handful of playsets, an Ewok Battle Wagon, and an Imperial Troop Transporter.  I'll keep plugging away more slowly now, it'll be sad to finish the set... it's been about 22 years since I started piecing it together.

What a great-looking set Rob. The paint apps on all of those are so clean that they look like they could have been made in 2023 as part of the Retro collection. It has been fun to see all of your updates here. I don't have the same level of nostalgia as many here for original Kenner figures or the Droids/Ewoks cartoons since they all came out before I was born, but your posts and watching the old episodes on D+ have made me really want to get into collecting these one day.

It's always bittersweet completing a collection like that. I'm sure you'll find something else to collect next though... ;)
