I like the way he looks, the fact you can wiggle his head and tail (a bit like a Jabba) and I love that you can stick your Stormie in him using the trap door. The SW Figure line weren’t like MOTU where He-Man could sit aside Battle Cat because of his swivel legs so this was ingenious!
Anyways Lars here’s my Dewback. He came with a ROTJ catalogue with Jabba on the front as this was the collector’s issue re-released in 1984.
Thanks mate for sharing the pictures and the story. So it was maybe also not sold in the UK
I remember I have seen a canadian box
so maybe it was sold in usa and canada and maybe a few shops in europe imported the Dewback
I also like that you can stick a figure in him, just like the TaunTaun, I think that is cool
In the collectors box that I have there is this catalog, is that the same you have in your box ?
