      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 monthís 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 laterÖ

    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 Warokís head tilts to the left and there is a light coloured belt sculpted to the torso, while Lumatís head looks completely forward and there is nothing save fur sculpted to the torso. Lumatís Ewok Quiver sports two white painted arrows, where Warokís has four unpainted arrows. Another tip to spotting Lumatís Ewok Quiver is to note the colour, unlike Warokís, Lumatís quiver is moulded in the same plastic as its hood.

    Identifying The Ewok Bows
    In the case of the bows, Lumatís intended bow is moulded in light brown plastic, and Warokís 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.

    Poll
    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).
