Teebo is an Ewok poet, musician, and mystic who reads the future in the stars and communicates with nature. He's a member of the tribe's Council of Elders and led the war party that discovered Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and the others before the Battle of Endor.

Collectors everywhere! Let us grasp your attention! Hasbro has released the very first modern Teebo action figure in the Power Of The Jedi line. Part of the tail-end Charlie wave of the line, Teebo, along with controversial BoShek and long-awaited R4-M9 has been released much to the happiness of collectors all around. As luck would have it, the last wave of the Power Of The Jedi line was quite difficult to lock down and many collectors needed to rely on specialty shops and/or online to secure these action figures. Teebo was perhaps one of the more anticipated figures in the line because he was part of the original vintage Kenner lineup in 1984 and for collectors, completing those original figures are always priority number one. The great news here is that Teebo is not a letdown in any way possible. A great sculpt is complemented by a gorgeous paint job and a wonderful amount of accessories. And in keeping faith with the vintage spirit, Hasbro made sure that you could strip this Ewok down to nothing but his fur for ultimate and alternate play value. Teebo completes the Power Of The Jedi line with a loud bang and we couldn’t be happier with the results. As Ewok fans, we hope Hasbro goes into overdrive making them for us. There some of the nicest action figures we have received and Hasbro has made them better and better with each successive release.

Teebo is a warrior. And in Star Wars Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi, Teebo sported two unique looks. Of course, this time Hasbro gives us the rarer of the two looks and gives us our very first interpretation of him based on the “full cowl” headdress. The 1984 vintage Kenner figure is based on the more common film appearance of Teebo (with the “half” cowl). It would have been great if Hasbro included both cowls with this version of Teebo, but we’re not going to complain about it because this figure is almost perfect as is. With Hasbro revisiting scale in the Power Of The Jedi line, we have to be upfront and state that Teebo isn’t exactly perfect. He is too large when compared to the other characters in the line. This is of course bittersweet because the figures itself is as close to a work of art as Hasbro has ever come to date. The sculpt is breathtaking. They added two swivel wrists to Teebo which work wonders when posing him with the spear. And although it takes some effort, his cowl is completely removable as well as his horn and knife sheath. Underneath you will find that Teebo has a swivel head in addition to swivel shoulders. And of course he comes with two swivel hips. The extra accessories are a very nice touch. If you recall when you were a kid, some of the Ewok action figures in the Kenner line came with the most accessories. That’s exactly where Teebo harkens back to for us.

With all of that being said, we still have to say that Teebo’s greatest asset is his paint job. Again, it’s literally the nicest paint job in all of the Power Of The Jedi line. All of us are well aware of his fur pattern. Well, Hasbro has nailed it beautifully as far as we’re concerned. You’ll find alternating stripes of light gray/white against the dark color that his body was molded. And Hasbro has added tons of detail in the sculpt to recreate the illusion of real fur. Teebo comes with his signature “angry eyes” and Hasbro has accentuated this feature with adding a rim of red that encapsulates them. The sculpt also has Teebo showing his teeth and Hasbro once again painted the lips and teeth perfectly. Teebo also sports flesh colored skin around his fingers and toes. Although somewhat sloppy in spots (but not that terrible) Hasbro has added this detail nicely overall. Our bone of contention with Teebo? Hasbro molded the torso in a slightly different color plastic that his limbs and head. It’s not terribly noticeable, but noticeable nonetheless. This happens here and there in the line and sometimes it can become pronounced as the plastic discolor over time because of age, sun or chemical reaction. We have concerns with how badly this will affect Teebo over time. Despite its flaws, we’re thrilled to have this addition in the Power Of The Jedi line. It should go to show us all that Hasbro should stick with the bread and butter: the original vintage Kenner cast. Because some of their best figures are based on these characters.
