  • 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.

    Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
    I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
    I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
    I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
    I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
    I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
    I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
