I prepared a small diorama almost a year ago, and I never had the chance to show it here. I took 4 Star Wars figures from Episode VI: the Return of the Jedi, and placed them in my garden, I mean, in the woods of the Moon of Endor.
These figures are:
BIKER SCOUT (1983)
In this case without the “bike”, I do not have it yet. The figure came with a small blaster in grey, which in this case is repro. It is memorable, how in the Return of the Jedi, this bikes drive through the forest and the Ewoks set some traps to destroy them. The Biekr Scout was available a few months earlier than the other three figures. It first appeared in the “65 back card”, while the other three in the “77 back card”
AT-ST DRIVER (1984)
The AT-ST (All Terrain Scout Transport) is the big two-legged machine seen in the Return of the Jedi (also shortly in the Empire Strikes Back) and here’s its pilot. The figure came with a small blaster, which in my case is again a repro weapon in grey-ish blue (same colour as the original).
I can’t remember very well which role this character played in the movie. In any case, it was one of the Ewoks in the tribe. Apparently plays a major role in some novels, but not in the film. The figure is nice, a big Ewok, with three accessories, all of them original: some kind of hat/headgear, an axe and a horn to call for battle.
WICKET W. WARRICK (1984)
This tiny figure is one of the Ewoks that fight in the woods against the Empire. Despite being so small, I guess it sold well, since it was maybe the nicest character in the whole toyline. It was also funny in the movie, with a few memorable moments. The figure came with a hood and a spear. Both are original.
