  • 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.

    Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
    I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
    I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
    I'm behind both of these ideas!
    I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
    It isn't for me.
