  • Point of Interest: 
      This figure first appeared in Canada on the Return Of The Jedi 77 back card, but debuted on the Return Of The Jedi 79 back card in the United States. This figure didn’t get released in Europe until the Tri-Logo 70 back card and because of that this figure, along with Lumat are often referred to as belonging to a wave known as “The Last Seventeen”.

    Comments: Along with his good buddy Teebo, Paploo here owned the Ewok Village… at least according the Return Of the Jedi novel. Sadly, for whatever reason, he is represented as nothing more than a nameless character in the film. Well, a nameless character who stole a Speeder Bike and essentially gave the Rebel Alliance the ability to defeat the Evil Galactic Empire that is.

    Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the Paploo Action figure has no known major variations.

    Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
    Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
    1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
    I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
    This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
    I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
    I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
