For my final entry of Star Wars toys this week on Earth Station One I decided to cover a character that me and my son both really like.
I am a fan of Ewoks.
I get why people don’t like them, I just don’t agree. Ewoks are savage little brutes that were going to eat not only Han Solo and Luke Skywalker, but the mighty Chewbacca as well. And people scoff at the fact that they played such a big role in the Empire’s loss at the Battle of Endor. You know what? That generation of Imperials has been proven to be the most incompetent of any, while the Ewoks were wild savages backed into defending their homes and their way of life from invading aliens. If Randy frigging Quaid can save Earth from the Independence Day aliens, the Ewoks can darn sure do the same from a bunch of poorly trained morons who can’t even shoot straight and think the most efficient weapons of war are a giant dog robot that explodes when it gets tripped and a giant robot chicken that is apparently made of the Star Wars galaxy’s equivalent of tin foil.
