      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.

    Comments: One would figure that after seven Ewoks, Kenner would have finally been able to get it out of their system, but alas, as this figure proves nothing could be further from the truth. Mind you, one has to wonder what the point of adding Warok to the collection. For the most part, he is nothing more than a better made version of a figure that came out a few month?s earlier (Lumat). From that point of view however, it may be that this figure was only the herald to the way of life Star Wars collectors would have to adapt to ten years later?

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

    Spotting the Differences Between Lumat and Warok
    Many people new to vintage collecting often mistake Lumat for Warok, or vise versa. Because both figures come with very similar accessories, and share roughly the same colour tone, they do appear very similar at a casual glance. As such, there are a few easy differences to spot. When stripped of all accessories, one can notice that Warok?s head tilts to the left and there is a light coloured belt sculpted to the torso, while Lumat?s head looks completely forward and there is nothing save fur sculpted to the torso. Lumat?s Ewok Quiver sports two white painted arrows, where Warok?s has four unpainted arrows. Another tip to spotting Lumat?s Ewok Quiver is to note the colour, unlike Warok?s, Lumat?s quiver is moulded in the same plastic as its hood.

    Identifying The Ewok Bows
    In the case of the bows, Lumat?s intended bow is moulded in light brown plastic, and Warok?s is moulded in dark brown plastic. There are many reproduction bows out there, and such it is vitally important to know that neither bow was ever moulded in any other colour. Of all the reproductions known, the one to come about the most often is moulded in gray plastic. It is important to note that there are some Tri-Logo carded examples of Lumat with a dark brown moulded bow, but when considering that both Lumat and Warok were being packaged and shipped in Europe at the same time, it is likely that these are packaging errors, but there is a chance that they may have been intentionally substituted during a theoretical length of time. It is impossible to say how many were incorrectly packaged, but to date there are no known carded examples of Warok with a light coloured bow.
