JTA Presents: Evolutions - Wooof

Welcome to another one of our JTA Presents: Evolutions features! Let’s check out how close or far we are from having an ideal Hasbro 3.75″ Wooof action figure. Have we arrived at definitive status yet? Weigh in and let us know what conclusion you’ll come to by clicking through and adding your two cents in the comments!

Wooof

 

Some of the blink-and-you-miss-it aliens from Jabba’s palace are among the most adored and revered by longtime Star Wars collectors. For many, a Yotts Oren is infinitely more desired than the next Rey, Finn, Poe or Rose action figures. During The Vintage Collection’s original run, Hasbro made a concerted effort to bang out as many background aliens as possible. And they did a fantastic job. One of them, Wooof, was the first time they ever produced a modern version of the 1983 RETURN OF THE JEDI Klaatu figure. It’s a nearly flawless action figure, but it’s worth taking a look to see if Hasbro can improve upon it.

1983’s RETURN OF THE JEDI line was a sensory overload bonanza for young Star Wars fans. The first wave of figures loaded us up with heroes, villains, and creatures galore. Klaatu was one of the first 17 action figures created for Episode VI. And he quickly became a favorite figure for many of us. Between his luxurious soft-goods, to his excellent sculpting, Kenner made a hit right from the start. Perhaps Klaatu looking so good in 1983 was the reason Hasbro made us wait longer than a quarter of a century to give us a modern counterpart!

“It’s worth the wait” is an adage that has become cliché for many people. But it’s the perfect one to apply to 2010’s TVC Wooof (VC24) figure. There are few figures than encapsulate pure action figure excellence, but Wooof is one of them. Hasbro mastered the sculpt, the articulation and the inclusion of premium soft-goods. (Just look at the drape of those things!) There is probably never a need to revisit Wooof in the Hasbro Star Wars action figure line ever again. Hasbro treated both collectors and this action figure with care, love and unbridled enthusiasm. We’re thrilled to have this figure in our collections.

Questions for discussion:

1. In your opinion, do we have a definitive version of this figure?

2. If we don’t have a definitive version of this figure, should Hasbro tool a new figure from the ground up again, or should they tweak a current sculpt to perfect it instead?

3. If the figure ranks as definitive for you, do you want to see it repackaged in vintage Kenner packaging (The Vintage Collection) if it isn’t already?

4. Add any other points of note or interest in the comments about any of these versions of Wooof action figures.
