be@rbrick dearest

One of the most expensive Be@bricks is the Star Wars Wicket, mainly because it is part of
a highly collectible toy franchise. Add that to the fact that there is only 0.52% chance that you will get one in a blind box assortment in stores.

The Wicket Be@rbrick, released in December 2003 as a 'secret' Be@rbrick, was based on the lead Ewok character from 'Return of the Jedi'. Ewoks are a cross between walking teddy bears and shih-tzus, and belong to an alien race of tree dwelling hunters-gatherers in the Star Wars universe. They may be small and cute but they're omnivores – meaning, while they love berries and other forest fruits, they'd have no problems eating humans. :-)
