The Ewoks of Bright Tree Village join forces with the Rebels to battle Imperial troopers. These diminutive natives of Endor are fierce fighters with an array of weapons to help defeat the troopers and immobilize Imperial walkers. Armed with spears, clubs and weapons taken from overpowered troopers, the Ewoks do their part to free the galaxy.

As we collect our thoughts to rave about what may go down as one of the finest Hasbro exclusives to date, we’re still in disbelief that Hasbro had the effrontery to release a multipack that contains…. wait for it…. five Ewoks. Collectors have proven throughout the recent years that Ewoks are in demand, for every basic figure Ewok or two-pack Hasbro has released have been monumental successes. They fly off of the shelves and Hasbro has found a way to include some impressive articulation into their tiny little bodies. Still, it’s cool to be an Ewok "hater" in the collecting community. Regardless, for years we’ve been staunch supporters of the little fur balls and now something that we’ve waited for years to arrive has and it couldn’t be more impressive than it is. This set isn’t without a blemish or two as there are a few things that got changed by Hasbro at the prototype stage that didn’t make it to the final product, but all in all the final result is prodigious. If you despise Ewoks, then we actually feel remorse for you and we’d ask that you move along and find another review to read because we are going all out to rave about this set. Yes, we’ve already called out the Ewok haters, but we would also like to address the closet Ewok fans. It’s OK to love Ewoks. It’s OK to think they’re funny and cute. And it’s OK to purchase a set of them for around $40 at Toys R Us. It’s just OK. The MSRP of $39.99 (with some reports even noting a higher price point) is indeed a little steep, but keep in mind that there are five “new” figures here, four of which make their debut as an action figure in the modern line, which average to only $8 a figure. Oh, and then Expanded Universe fans get two Ewoks to add to their collections too. It could be worse. The Ewok recipes used to make these action figures are very interesting. We’ll go through each Ewok one by one and hopefully you’ll see why this is absolutely an exclusive you need to support and purchase now. Thank the Maker that Hasbro is cranking out Ewoks in such high numbers. It’s such a great time to be a Star Wars collector!

Flitchee is the first Ewok in the set. If you recall in Star Wars Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi, there was an Ewok that confiscated an E-11 blaster from a stormtrooper and waved it in the air at the first sign of victory at the Battle of Endor. This Ewok has no been immortalized in plastic complete with the E-11 blaster rifle. Interestingly, there is no official record of Flitchee in Wookieepedia despite his visible screen time. There is an Ewok spirit names Flitchee, but that is the extent of it. Flitchee is a retooled kit-bashed figure that utilizes the body of Romba from 2007’s TAC Romba & Graak (No. 43) basic figure set with the hood/quiver combination from Graak in that same set. The head from Leektar in 2008's TLC Leektar & Nippet (BD 4) two-pack accompanies it. The important thing to note here however is that Hasbro revised the cod section to remove the hole for the sheath in addition to the belt that was used for Romba. The knife fits quite nicely in the “quiver” which now functions as the sheath instead. The figure has also been repainted. Nanta (formerly known as Corpsey) was a close friend of Romba. It is a repaint of the Nho’Apakk figure from 2009’s LC Ewoks (BD18) set. An all-new cowl has been sculpted for him as well. You'll be surprised at how differently this figure looks in darker colors. Probably the most anticipated figure is the most controversial. We finally get an update to Teebo. A prototype head sculpt made it to the product’s packaging which looked incredibly authentic, but licensor Lucasfilm, Ltd. suggested that the head sculpt be changed before it went into production. As a result, Teebo ended up being just a repaint of 2011’s TVC Logray (Ewok Medicine Man) (VC55) figure with all-new accessories. But the final figure doesn’t look bad at all. Unfortunately the face is not accurate as it could be, but the rest of the figure looks incredible. Teebo comes with no less than nine accessories, one of which is an alternate headdress which was in a brief scene in Return Of The Jedi. Hasbro went above and beyond to give us every version of Teebo possible. As a result we’re very happy.

The rest of the Ewoks in the set are from the Expanded Universe, but one, Kneesa, has been on collectors’ lists for years now and she’s arrived to a warm reception. Kneesa looks absolutely perfect. She’s mostly made from 2010’s TVC Wicket (VC27) figure but comes with an all-new excellent head sculpt, two interchangeable cowls for her various appearances and a tightly wound bola for tripping things. The great thing is that the bola fits under her pink cowl perfectly without any bumpiness or rigidity. Many collectors have ached for her and the anticipation of her release has nearly killed them, but she is now available and phenomenally sculpted. Fans of Star Wars: Ewoks should count themselves fortunate. The final figure in the set is Tippet. Unfortunately Tippet was not in Return Of The Jedi, but he did make an appearance in Marvel Comics’ Star Wars #94. There were some really aggressive Ewoks in that story arc and Tippet is one of them. He’s a lot of fun, but doesn’t necessarily fit in with the rest of your Episode VI specific Ewoks. Tippet is a straight repaint of the Machook figure from 2009’s TLC Machook/Keoulkeech/Kettch Comic Packs set (that was released as a Walmart exclusive). Obviously the figure has a different color scheme and new accessories including two interchangeable cowls. He also comes with a new dagger that completes his look just perfectly, especially with that angry expression. Fans of the Ewoks species have a lot to celebrate with this release. It took Hasbro years to muster up enough courage and take a risk on something that, a few years ago, could have bombed. But perhaps waiting that long for a hodgepodge of Ewoks is what will make this set a success. We hope so because we’d like to see Hasbro continue to release multipacks of Ewoks. Even with the many we’ve received to date, there are still many more from the Battle of Endor that we love to see immortalized as action figures one day. We just want to see this trend repeat. (Editor's Note: Special thanks to Jayson Krebsbach at Yakface.com for his time and notes in determining correct "recipes" for the Ewoks in this multipack.)
