  • The LEGO Ewok Village 10236 is going to be exclusive to official LEGO Stores and the online LEGO Shop, and will retail for a scary €249.99 (likely $250+ in the United States). Here’s what we expect the set to be like…

    The Star Wars Ewok Village from Return of the Jedi is no stranger to toys. A vintage Kenner Ewok Village playset was released almost thirty years ago (although Hasbro hasn’t ever released the Ewok Village in the modern Star Wars toys line). While the 2013 LEGO Star Wars Ewok Village is obviously going to be larger and very different from the vintage Ewok village, looking at the Kenner Ewok Village gives us some idea of the sorts of things we can probably expect with the 10236 LEGO Ewok Village set.

    From a Kenner Toy Fair catalog:

    Straight from the forest ENDOR and the kingdom of the EWOKS, it's Kenner's own EWOK Village. Our playset features an operated "net" trap for capturing wayfaring REBELS, a working "vine" elevator and tree escape chute, carrying litter 2 huts, even a "campfire." Kids love reenacting their favorite EWOK scenes from the new movie with this new Kenner playset.

    The Ewok village was the largest of any playset that Kenner produced. It is one of the easier playsets to acquire today, but with as many small parts as this set has, it's often tough to find a complete one.

  • Ewok Village Action Playset
    Here's something you don't see every day--its the Tri-Logo version (European-issue) of the Ewok Village toy. What I didn't realize before Ross pointed it out to me was that the photo used on this box is completely different from the one employed on the American boxes. Look close now--although this image mimics its earlier counterpart closely, its a completely different shot. The angle is slightly different, the background is different, and the included Ewok figures have been updated. Whereas the American box was restricted to Chief Chirpa and Logray, this one shows Teebo and Wicket as well.

    For the monumental price of $250+ that the LEGO Ewok Village is going to cost, I’d like to think that the set will contain at least three giant trees as the centerpieces of the set. We’re all but guaranteed two giant trees with the set so that they can have the rope bridge connecting the trees where Luke Skywalker tells Princess Leia that she’s his sister, but four giant trees would be absolutely ideal.

Travel to Endor and visit the treetop home of the Ewoks

The worst-case scenario for the LEGO Star Wars Ewok Village is that it ends up having a bunch of rehashed elements that don’t belong in the set, such as an Imperial AT-ST or Speeder Bike. Those vehicles were seen in action at the Battle of Endor, but never at the Ewok Village itself. Considering we just got a LEGO Battle of Endor set a few years ago, I’d hate to see this set wasted borrowing elements from that one.
