It would've been ideal if Hasbro could have a "short guy assortment" at a lower price for the likes of Yoda, Grogu, R2-D2, Salacious Crumb and their ilk. It doesn't mean that this isn't a good figure - it's just that Hasbro sells other, cheaper, taller figures with more parts for less money. We're just being charged a tax because it's in the 6-inch assortment packaging. Such is life. If you're like me and you were crazy for Ewoks as a kid, you want this, and you may already have this. I can't imagine Hasbro will revisit Ewoks given how few we've had in the last decade, although a repack in a new box is pretty much guaranteed to happen eventually. If you don't get the "vintage" packaging version, and you love Return of the Jedi, be sure to pick up some flavor of Wicket. I think I can safely say this may well be the best Wicket figure Hasbro will ever give us, unless by some miracle they start to deliver cartoon-style Ewoks with appropriate sculpting and deco. And that's pretty unlikely. Movie fans, if you just want a cool Wicket and don't mind the price, do yourself a favor and pick up this one.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
