    Sounds like those kids in Canada were spoiled!

    I have King Gorneesh loose with coin. I bought it at TRU back around 1988 on clearance and only began to really appreciate it around the beginning of the summer. Until then it was still in my C-3PO collector's case.
    I love the Droids packaging style. I have the Side Gunner MISB and the artwork is fantastic. The randomness of the character selection for the art gives the whole package an odd and mysterious look. The ATL interceptor is a bit out of my price range right now but I've seen the artwork for that online and that has the same mysterious odd quality. The fact that nobody played with these toys only adds to the fun of having them now.

    I'm also now collecting the Droids series. I've found some VERY NICE unpunched figures on eBay for $40 - 50 each. Of course, I forsee the 2 Fromm's and Mr. Fett being the last ones to round out my collection due to their prices. But, I'll have 'em all when I'm done

    I must agree with StillAKid here, but an interesting fact for you Jangofart, I remember reading an interview with George Lucas a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away... He originally intended for a scene of Wookies to come to the rescue of the rebels, but he could not work it in, then when ROTJ came along, here was his chance, only Chewbacca had been well established by then, so if you manipulate the word wookie, drop a few letters move the "e" to the front of the word, you have ewok. I dont remember much more of the interview to explain why they were small and cute little teddy bear looking creatures, like I said, the interview was a very long time ago... If anybody else remembers the interview, please help me out here. My memory just isn't what it used to be... Age can be a cruel joke sometimes...

    Also, I chose to avoid the Ewok figures from the TV series because they had a different look to them... is that stupid or what? And I call myself a collector?!!!

    I remember hearing that he originally wanted the Wookies on Endor, but he went with Ewoks instead. The Ewoks were more primitive in fighting to the Wookies plus it was easier to get a bunch of shorter people than taller people. If it was Wookies I believe the whole battle on Endor would have been different.

    I myself was never interested in the Ewok figures from their show. I always just stuck to the movie line.
