STAR WARS: RETURN OF THE JEDI
Made for realistic battle action play! The new EWOK Combat Glider is a realistic model of the same EWOK Glider everyone remembers in the movie STAR WARS: RETURN OF THE JEDI. The toy features an adjustable harness which fits most Action Figures (not included) and an action lever designed to drop "boulders" on the enemy.

Look there, up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's Logray, the Ewok medicine man, and he's flying in his spiffy Ewok Combat Glider! The toy basically consisted of a molded piece of tan plastic, a flexible rubber harness, and two hollow plastic "boulders." But it was pretty cool for what it was-- a low price-point reproduction of an implement that was actually seen in Return of the Jedi.
Although Kenner had plans to issue this toy as a part of their animated Ewoks line (it even appears on the reverse of the Ewoks blister card), it never made it beyond 1984 and Return of the Jedi packaging.
First Issued: 1984 (ROTJ packaging)
