Toyguide Update: Ewok Assault Catapult

ewokcatapult_preview

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume with our next entry for the ever continuing Vintage Collection. Today, we take a look at the Kmart Exclusive Ewok Assault Catapult.

PROS: Again, Kmart proves to be the retailer of choice when it comes to Original Trilogy merchandise. Not only do we get 2 “new” and unique Ewoks, but an all new catapult as well.

CONS: It really would have been nice to get the dalmatian Ewok (Brethupp) that was originally solicited with this set. Hopefully that version will see the light of day.

Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this set is worth adding to your collection.

You can also weigh in with your impressions on the figures we add to our toyguide on facebook and in our forums.

    These Kmart sets remind us of just how capable Hasbro is of making quality product that people want.

    I hope they recognize the demand for such items is there and take this concept and expand on it, especially for accessories and diorama pieces like the scanning crew equipment and the catapult.

    These are just excellent sets and the collecting community should continue to support them… and I hope the thieves who keep swapping the figures and returning these sets get caught. All that does is let people down, and make it harder for Kmart to justify more of these sets in the future.
