Putting the Ewoks in ROTJ paved the way for two Spin-off movies nobody wants to remember, two seasons of a cartoon, a toyline for the cartoon (or maybe that was the cancelled one and only Droids got made?) and a bunch of comics, childrens books + other shit for literal toddlers.
The Ewoks got pushed hard but not really during the ROTJ era itself, mostly after. Even then, weren't there just as many Ewoks as Jabbas Guards? For a figure type that mostly differentiates itself only through hat and fur color that's quite many.>>8005628
How have there been 22 TFA sets, it feels like all three sequel movies got a wave of set + 3 extras in waves after. Even then TROS gets the short end of the stick with only the Night Buzzard/Knights of Ren ship in the summer wave this year and presumably nothing else.
