  • 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.

    Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
    Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
    I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
