I'm not into TBS6 though, just into Ewoks. Got Teebo as a giant mutant Ewok and will likely get both Wicket and Paploo to add to the ranks.

Yeah, these will definitely be the same price as any 'regular' release figure.
If Hasbro were smart about it, they should have done a 'deluxe' priced two pack with a second ewok.

Or a Wokling, or at least give some extra cowls and weapons so you can army build them.

Cause it'll sell more? If a Chief Chirpa comes with two extra cowls and weapons that'll help turn him into Lumat or generic Ewok 25.b, I'll buy three.

I was mostly joking about their lack of generosity, but wouldn't it be better to just make two separate Ewoks? If I had to choose between buying two identically sculpted Ewoks, each with its own unique paint application, cowling and weapon versus two of the same Ewok with two different cowlings and weapons, I'd rather buy the former or two differently painted Ewoks without having the leftover accessories. It's pretty much six in one and half a dozen in the other, but its cheaper not to pack extra accessories and you get a different painted version.

True, that's definitely preferable. I just doubt they'll get beyond the eight Kenner Ewoks anytime soon.

Look I get that some people might not have Paploo since he was part of an Exclusive 4-pk, yet couldn't they have at least repainted him to look like Warok or Romba to get a totally different Ewok? Especially considering Paploo is only three years old and there's only been three Ewoks released since TBS began. IDK seems a wasted opportunity though I guess repaint can happen any time.

I’m cool with it and I paid a lot for him in the Endor set. Part of the reason that I’m good with it is that they broke their unwritten rule and gave us a brand new Wicket.

I doubt they'll make any TBS Ewoks beyond the Kenner 8. The remaining 5 could easily be trinkled out over the next few years.
