Wicket the Ewok enters the “Star Wars” universe when the Rebel Alliance send a small team to the forest moon of Endor to figure out how they can sabotage the second Death Star floating in space nearby. There, Leia stumbles upon the teddy bear-like creature, whose name nor species is never said out loud in any of the “Star Wars” movies. He’s a little bit jumpy and doesn’t entirely trust Leia at first, but as soon as she throws some sacks his way, they’re basically friends. Of course, the rest of Wicket’s friends want to cook the other rebels they meet in the forest, but C-3PO clears that up with a little white lie about being a golden god.
This figure has a fully furry body, molded plastic nose and mouth, and the deadest eyes you’ve ever seen. There’s also a simulated leather cloak that Wicket wears, though there’s no spear for him to wield, which is a bit of a bummer. How else are you supposed to scare your children and pets with an anthropomorphic creature if he’s not armed with a primitive weapon?
If you want to bring home your own Ewok, you can head over to ShopDisney and get this Wicket the Ewok plush figure for $499.99. That’s a lot of cash, but that’s the price you pay for basically buying yourself a hairy alien to sit around your house.
