WICKET Wicket Return of the Jedi
The VC27 Wicket figure is not only one of the finest likenesses of the brave young Ewok ever produced, it was also Hasbro's first stab at a realistic version based on an animated series to be packaged in The Vintage collection line. While it came packed with all the standard gear you'd expect for a film accurate figure, Hasbro also included the green cowl and satchel the character wore in the short lived Ewoks cartoon that ran from 1985 to 1986.

Released in November 2010, the third wave of figures in The Vintage collection focused on characters from Return of the Jedi including the VC21 Gamorrean Guard, VC22 Admiral Ackbar, VC23 Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight / Endor Capture), VC24 Wooof, VC25 R2-D2, VC26 Rebel Commando (first version) and VC27 Wicket action figures. Both Yoda and Wedge Antilles were originally intended to be a part of this wave but both were shuffled to later assortments. Many of the figures in this wave were re-released on chase variant Revenge of the Jedi cards in the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive Revenge of the Jedi Death Star Set and later in stores on the same cards, only this time sporting a send away sticker and mail in order form.

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.
