  • Point of Interest: 
      This figure debuted in the United States on The Power Of The Force card, and in Europe on the Tri-Logo card. It was never packaged on a Canadian card. The Tri-Logo card back inexplicably features a picture of Paploo in place of one of Romba.

    Comments: Romba was a good looking Ewok and he knew it. When compared to all his mates, heís the only one who doesnít look like a creepy pint-sized rag-wearing bear with a sharp stick, a fact that likely makes him popular with all the Ewok hotties. Maybe thatís why this handsome pint-sized rag-wearing bear with a sharp stick always had a smile on his face.

    Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, the Romba action figure may have a very major variation. Though not much is known about the origin of it, there is at least one known example of a Romba figure moulded in very dark brown plastic. At this point there is not enough information known about the origin of this figure to state that it is a legitimate production variation or a prototype.

    * Seemingly the same, the spear that comes with Romba is a different sculpt than the one packed with Wicket W. Warrick. It is, however, very difficult to identify one from the other, and generally considered one and the same.

    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).
