Lumat

General Analysis

There were two Ewok figures from Kenner’s RETURN OF THE JEDI line that snuck out to retail that many collectors didn’t know of until much too late. I, thankfully, wasn’t one of those young collectors in 1984. Like a hawk, I stalked store shelves looking for the "latest and greatest" Star Wars figures so I could complete my action figure collection. Lumat and Paploo made up the third wave of RETURN OF THE JEDI figures and are the only two figures in the line dubbed as 79-Back figures. Labeled initially with the name EWOK WARRIOR, it took time before Kenner upgraded his name to Lumat across the entire Kenner and Palitoy lines. I loved Lumat as a kid, and I thought it was incredible for an Ewok to come with a bow and a quiver full of arrows. One summer break in the mid-nineties while attaining my Bachelor’s degree at Rutgers University, I took a trip out to northeastern PA (before I lived there) in the country and went antique window shopping. Much to my surprise in a locked display cabinet next to some rather old-looking PEZ dispensers were perfectly mint carded Lumat and Paploo figures (each in THE POWER OF THE FORCE packaging with coins). I had them for years until I realized I didn’t care about carded figures anymore and sold them on eBay. I wonder what Star Wars collector owns them now?
