The Rebels are victorious over the evil Empire, but their fragile new Alliance is in jeopardy. A Hiromi spy secretly instigates a misunderstanding between the Ewoks and the Lahsbees. The conflict threatens to become an all-out war that will engulf the rest of the galaxy. Will the Rebels help the Ewoks and Lahsbees resolve their conflict before its too late?

For those of you who may get confused while trying to properly identify the correct names to the appropriate Ewoks, when looking at a packaged sample of this Comic Packs set, the Ewoks from left to right are Machook, Keoulkeech, and Kettch. We need this as a note for ourselves just as much as for you. Probably the surprise Comic Packs set of the year, we never expected Hasbro to help us grow our Ewok army via this method. Hasbro decided to make the most out of their 2007 TAC Romba & Graak (30 43) molds and retool them into three new never before made Ewoks. Although they have very colorful cowls upon their heads, once removed, you have three realistic styled Ewoks. It’s always been quite “en vogue” to rip and criticize Star Wars Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi specifically for the Ewoks, but we (and many more of you out there) are proud fans of the closing story of the saga and big fans of these little fur balls. It was a great move on Hasbro's part to make this set because most of us love to get additional Ewoks but we typically only get one or two in the basic line per year, so it was especially nice to get three more knocked out at once. We are especially thankful for the once a year Ewok addition to the basic figure line, but it is especially great to get them peppered throughout some exclusives like this Comic Packs set too. Ewoks should be a staple to the line and it seems as if Hasbro is really beginning to pick up on this more so now than ever before. But thanks to their revised approach, we are growing our Ewok armies exponentially and we are always ready for more and more. This Comic Packs set was one of three Walmart exclusive sets released in February 2009 and for the most part have sold out in many areas. (This is a great thing!) And although these comic sets have done very well for the most part, most complaints from collectors about this particular set stem from the fact that these are based on the Marvel series appearances of the characters which usually results in the use of bright and odd color utilization. But except for maybe a couple of hyper-colorful cowl choices, these Ewoks turned out especially nice. If you mix and match Ewok parts, you will find out just cool these little guys are indeed.

Because the Romba & Graak molds were retooled and repainted and utilized as the basis for these figures, they have a ton of articulation. They can be posed in a multitude of different ways and the weapons they come with are molded very well and can be held in the hands very easily. Great figure designs and even better accessories make so a very compelling product for collectors and Hasbro gets high marks for taking all of these things into consideration here. The Ewoks also come with unique Stormtrooper armor, made a bit out of scale, but cool nonetheless to fit their stocky and corpulent frames. These “fur balls” have apparently kicked some Imperial butt judging by their assets and souvenirs. Hey, they did it in Return Of The Jedi so they can certainly do it in a comic book! The Ewok population is full of diversity and individuality and this set adds three more distinct “personalities” to the whole mix. Although we don’t feel Hasbro has run through the entire gamut of Ewok body types, there have certainly given us a lot to chew on so far. We look forward to them changing up the bodies a little bit more to further diversify this Endor species. Machook is a retool and repaint of the Graak figure, so they look very similar to each other. But there are enough differences to make them unique obviously. Keoulkeech looks the most “cartoonish” of the three Ewoks and he too is a retool and repaint of the Graak figure as well. Interestingly, the name “Keoulkeech” should sound very familiar to collectors. If you remember back in the Star Wars “Saga” line (2002-2004) we got a 12” version of Keoulkeech in a two-pack with Logray. Well, we know now that the 12” figure was named incorrectly because we discovered his real name that to the Leektar & Nippet (BD 4) two-pack in 2008’s The Legacy Collection, because clearly that 12” figure and 3.75” figure are the same character. In short, it looks like we finally have a correct, albeit Marvel-inspired, 3.75” interpretation of Keoulkeech. Kettch is the “other” brown Ewok in the set and he too makes a first time appearance in any format. But he is a repaint of the Romba figure. The three Ewoks are wonderful additions to the line and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to purchase them.

If you are not a fan of the Expanded Universe, you may still want to pick up this set because these three Ewoks will undoubtedly add some body and depth to your Ewok Village or Endor displays. And if you are an Ewok fan then this set doesn’t require much thought. There is value here because you are getting three figures for the price of two. This helps any Star Wars collector’s budget. The figures are not bad at all and significantly beat out the POTF2 Wicket and Logray figure sculpts as far as quality, accuracy and scale are concerned, and they are significant upgrades to any Ewok made prior to 2006. This set whets our appetite for what new Ewoks will be coming down the pike for collectors. The Ewok species is in the forefront of Hasbro’s vision and this is a great thing. Ewoks have picked up momentum as time has moved forward and we believe that the catalyst to spark this interest was driven from the lack of frequent Ewoks in the line. Hasbro has played their cards right here and it seems the sky is the limit for future Ewoks. This Comic Packs set gives you options too. If you think their cowls are too bright and not authentic enough, they can be easily removed and replaced with others already in your collection. Or you can just display them without. Either way, you will have a great addition of micro warriors to help defend the Rebel Alliance against the Galactic Empire. And it is our hope that Hasbro will consider another Ewok three-pack or multipack set in the near future. It is certainly worth every penny and it is probably the quickest way to get Ewoks into your collection. And as diverse as the Ewok population is, there are countless choices to pick new Ewoks. (Editor’s Note: has reported that “Kettch” is not the name of an actual Ewok but rather a “made-up” character from the Wraith Squadron novels.)
