|Ewok Assault Catapult Accessory|
Aside from the two rocks, the Assault Catapult also included, as you might have guessed, a catapult. It was made to look as though it was composed of tied-together logs, and it had a pretty neat action feature, which used the flexibility of the plastic to fling things (namely, the rocks) into the air.
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. However, Kenner later used the molds for the Assault Catapult to produce a component of the Battle Wagon from their Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves line. (For more information on Star Wars toys that were recycled into other toy lines, click here.)
