Good old Wicket! Perhaps the most bearable of all the ewoks in 'Return of the Jedi'... Bearable!... Do you like what I did there? :wink: No?... Alright, suit yourselves!

The Wicket figure is actually my favourite of all the vintage ewok figures. He's tiny, true, but he's in proportion, and he also looks like his character. He has the correct spear and a neat removable hood, and he can move his arms and legs... And well, that's about it! But it works.

There seems to be two main variants to be found with Mr Warwick; a no COO where the limbs are usually a different shade of brown to the torso (quite possibly due to discolouration of one or both areas), and a Taiwan variant where the limbs and torso are a much closer colour match to one another (although my camera flash exaggerates the difference that is there, making them look less well matched that they actually do in hand). The hoods and face paint apps are also slightly different shades across the two variants... when you can find one without Imperial Dignitary Syndrome of the nose, that is.

I don't have a Ledy or other foreign variant of Wicket, so perhaps some other visually different variants exist out there, and if so, I'd love to learn about them :)

Anyway, here are my 2 loose ones. Hopefully some other members can help with some MOCs?

Hi i'm Russ

Remember above the clouds the sun always shines

C-3PO (Return of the Jedi): I’m rather embarrassed, General Solo, but it appears that you are to be the main course at a banquet in my honor.
