Painted Romba Hardcopy
Painted action figure hardcopies have become as rare as hen's teeth over the last few years. This Romba is a nice example.

Like most hardcopies, the piece is composed of several parts. The green color visible at the joints indicates it's made of Dynacast. Broc tells me that this particular Romba has the cowl molded onto the torso. The ewok cowls are known to have been sculpted directly onto hardcopy torsos. This one evidently came out of a mold that was made using one of these hardcopy-plus-cowl combos.

The word "Romba" is written on the bottom of the foot. This would have allowed the photographer or person in charge of assembling whatever display it was used on to identify the ewok. They do get confusing, those ewoks! Sometimes distinguishing one from the other is a bit like trying to differentiate Woody Harrelson from Matthew McConaughey.

The spear, which is original to the piece, looks to be a first shot. It's shot in plastic that differs in color from that used on the production version.
