Muah-hah-hah! My Ewok collection is now (almost) complete! Sure, the fuzzy little inhabitants of the Forest Moon of Endor have been maligned as ridiculous teddy bear savages by many hardcore fans since their introduction in 1983′s Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi, but I think they’ve grown on a lot of people (especially since the even more maligned prequels came out).
Would it have been cooler if George Lucas had gone with the original idea of staging the epic battle against the bumbling Empire with Wookiees instead of Ewoks among the trees of their homeworld of Kashyyyk? Sure, I suppose. And if Lucas hadn’t sold the business to Disney, there would probably always be the potential danger of him deciding to retroactively change the movie to reflect his initial intentions — but then what would happen to my glorious Ewok collection?
I guess it would become one of those sci-fi rarities, hmm? A super collectible Ewok collection more powerful than you can possibly imagine — even if none of them wield lightsabers or appear in Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back!
So here’s a rundown of what I have, what I’m awaiting, and what I might wind up skipping in the building of this, the most ultimate Ewok collection, like, ever!

Ewok Collection Still en Route
Don’t Yet Have; Might Not Get
There don’t seem to be any figures of Cindel Towani, but I’m sure that’s just some kind of ludicrous oversight.
Do you have your own Ewok collection? Do you wish it was a Wookiee collection, instead? Well, then you may very well be Wookie pa nub in all the wrong places. Go, team Ewok! My faithful hound, Wicket, will thank you for remaining loyal to the Ewok cause.
