    Yup! Apparently his name is "Mauler" Mithel. He'll have some silver dots on his helmet; I'm reasonably sure there's a version that's basically the same, but there have been so many slight variations on this mold that I can't remember right now where it came from. I'll have to check next time I'm around the collection.

    I'm more impressed that they're doing a new Porkins. Too bad about the pricing on these, 5 Ewoks ain't worth $35, and there's a lot of recycling in the Yavin one. I may stash one of each until a sale comes up.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    When basic figures are $11 at some stores, and next to impossible to find for less than $10, $35 for five Ewoks ($7/figure) is a steal.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    I'm interested to see if they ended up reusing any of Willrow Hood's mold for Porkins, like they alluded to a few years ago. It's hard to tell from the pictures, but he looks a bit chunkier than the ol' ICMG.

    I just happen to have Willrow on a shelf in my lab and comparing him to the fuzzy pictures Sandtroopers got ahold of I'd say no. The legs and lower arms are certainly different. I can't see the upper arms well enough to make any conclusions. The torso, assuming the vest isn't part of the mold, could share some parts, but it's doubtful. There seems to be some minor differences in the torso, but the vest obscures it enough to not be able to say definitively.

    When is this supposed to be out? Since I don't have a TRU near me, I'll need to be aware of when to look for it online, or make a drive down towards Seattle later this summer.

    But they're half the size of regular figures.

    Have they been consistent on anything like that lately? Not to my knowledge, all past promises and plans seem to have gone out the window lately.

    Porkins should be thicker than ICMG, remember how big Hootkins was in Raiders and '89 Batman? Great in both films, but not even remotely as svelte as Willrow Hood who is barely rotund at all.

    Seems to me like the Potj porkins has a bigger belly than this new one.
    One way to out think people is to make them think you think they'll think what you are not really trying to get them to think what you think.

    I agree, that figure looks more like his shape than this, even Willrow Hood seems rounder than this figure.

    Do we actually see Porkins from mid-torso down?
    Tommy, close your eyes.
