If you’re an Ewok hater, well first shame on you, and second, you’ll likely even have less tolerance for the more interpretive collectible versions of these fuzz balls. Take for instance the Wicket W. Warrick Maquette from Gentle Giant Ltd.. We absolutely adore it and think it’s cute beyond belief, but if you can’t even bare to watch them in Star Wars Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi, there is no way you’ll remotely care about a caricaturized version of the first Ewok to encounter the Rebel Alliance during their mission on Endor. The Wicket W. Warrick Maquette is officially the smallest in Gentle Giant’s entire line. The great thing is that its totally in scale with all the other pieces in the Maquettes line. Despite its tinier size, Gentle Giant didn’t seem to reduce the retail proportionally.
Wicket W. Warrick is at the ready with his trustworthy spear. He’ll likely poke whatever he encounters with it to see if it will harm or help him. Too bad a knocked out Princess Leia in her combat poncho gear wasn't included as part of this piece. He is affixed to a very simple yet colorful base that is complete with sprouting grass and at the base of his feet is a piece of kindling wood to help reinforce to the collector that his planet is a forest moon. It's simple, but colorful and wildly reminiscent of the Ewoks cartoon from the 80s. In the film, Wicket was primarily solid brown with a light tan encircled face. Gentle Giant took some liberties with Wicket and gave him streaking highlights in equidistant layers all the way up his entire body. It doesn’t look bad, but it may initially distract your eyes as you wonder why they decided to go this route with his paint job.
Status: Co-designed by Lucasfilm and Gentle Giant Studios, Inc., this maquette showcases an animated take on the classic characters from the Star Wars saga. Inspired by the various cartoon styles from the Star Wars universe, each character has been reimagined in a captivating new rendition sure to delight fans and collectors alike. We hope you enjoy owning this piece as much as we have enjoyed creating it.
