Also interesting that they got two of the figures wrong in either the description or photo!

Everything I got from Argos as a Kid broke within a week!

Interesting though.

Yes, and the blaster looks wrong on the rebel soldier, looks more like a black Pilot Blaster to me? I presume they were all baggies in a white outer box.

Just noticed...but Image 2 shows an interesting Ewok. Could it be a prototype? looks a bit like Romba remodelled. Interesting.

I could be wrong, but that looks like a Paploo figure wearing a bizarre extra dark brown Wicket hood, holding a Teebo axe.

Think you might be on the money there, the hood might have been an early design change they made before it went to full production.
