      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A nice addition to your Star Wars Lego collection

      Our little Lego Star Wars mini character figure of Chief Chirpa the Ewok was originally part of a much larger set which was made in 2009 and called the Battle of Endor Lego set.

      We decided to go for the set as it included so many Lego mini figures that we liked such as Princess Leia, Chewbacca, R2 D2, Wicket the Ewok, Paploo the Ewok, plus several others and of course Chief Chirpa the Ewok. The Ewoks appeared first in the Return of the Jedi film and endeared themselves to audiences all over the world.

      **********************************************************
      When you consider that the Chief Chirpa Ewok figure on his own can set you back £6 to £9 on Ebay etc, the fact that we got such a nice selection of mini figures within the set plus a AT-ST scout walker, the imperial bunker, speeder bikes and so much more, was a real bonus.

      We have many of the little Lego Star Wars figures set out in a mini fight scene including Chief Chirpa and they all look great. I would recommend both Chief Chirpa and the set to any Star Wars Lego fans. I feel it would make a nice thing to give as a gift to a child or teenager who like the series of films and is perhaps also keen on Lego.

      **********************************************************
      The little Chief Chirpa Ewok figure is a slightly grim yet cute little guy, with his determined expression which is both alarming and endearing at the same time. I really loved the Ewoks in the Star Wars films, so it was an obvious draw that the set we bought included the Chief. He stands at not much more than 4cms tall and is a little shorter than many of the Star Wars figures we have.

      Although he is small in stature, he is not to be messed with. He has his Shamen Staff with him and it stands at a little over twice Chief Chirpa's height.

      The Shamen Staff is a fearsome looking bit of kit modelled in a mid grey colour with black decor and two black horn like spikes on top. It carried the teeth / horns of animals he had hunted in the film. He can use the Shamen Staff to great effect in battle or to show his leadership and seniority.

      **********************************************************
      As the leader of the Ewoks, he carries himself with as much dignity as a small Lego Ewok can and can hold his own in battle. His little black eyes have a fierce and piercing look, he wears a brown hood with his ears sticking out through the sides and has a mid grey fur effect body.

      His legs are a little shorter than those of most of the other Lego figures we have, but his arms and hands are the same size. He looks a little squat compared to the other figures but that does add to his cuteness to my mind.

      His hands are the same as other Lego figures and are more claw like then hand like. They can rotate and grip items, such as the Shamen Staff he comes with, although its size does over power him and can knock him over unless he is standing on a solid Lego base. Sadly his teeny hands don't have a pincer movement and are otherwise fairly static, so it can be hard to get him to grip the Staff at times.

      **********************************************************
      He can be bought as a stand alone figure if you are lucky enough to find him, but he will come unboxed and at a premium price. After all as he was made as part of a set, it means that he has been spilt from his fellow Ewoks and the rest of the characters within the set. He is very desirable to a Star Wars collector due to this.

      The figure is a basic representation of the Chief Chirpa character and as such does not have all that much detail on him, but any Star Wars fan would know who he was meant to represent.

      I like him and think he is a nice addition to our collection. In spite of his small size and slight lack of fine detail, I feel he is a 5 star figure and have enjoyed owning him.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        good figure overall

        Chief Chirpa is the moody looking leader of the Ewok pack. I always recall wondering why he looked so darned miserable in 'Return Of The Jedi.' He sits there om his throne barking orders to Teebo and co and expects jobs to be done for him. He also looks overweight! Despite my criticisms, he is one of the better Ewoks and can easily be picked out in the Ewok crowd.

        If you go back the eighties, a toy was made of Chirpa by Kenner. It was about two inches in height and was a faithful adaption of the screen Chirpa. Years later, Lego have had a bash at making their own version. He's not so bad actually. His fur has come out a bit grey looking and should have been more grey/brown, but this does not matter too much. His head gear is shaped nicely and they have managed to capture his scowl well too. His downturned mouth looks great and his eyes look fed up!

        As with most Lego pieces, you can move his hands and legs, so you can seat him down or bend him over. Not that impressed with his paws, they look like claws, but then they do allow him to grip a massive spear which is way too big for him. I'm surprised he does not fall over with the sheer size of it! You could use the weapon to pron another Ewok with though.

        Prices vary for this chap, but a fair price would be around the four pound mark. As he is quite rare, prices do seem to be hovering a few pounds more than that, which is dear for a figure bare on an inch in height. A nice Lego extra but not a crucial Star Wars purchase.
