Warwick Davis, the actor inside the furry suit of everyone's favorite Ewok, Wicket, stopped by the Hasbro pavilion to check out the new Wicket figure (this time sporting the non-animated brown hood) and pose for photos with fans and even Hasbro/Star Wars team members.

On sale at Celebration V-- with practically no line at all-- is a two-pack with Fixer and Camie Marstrap. This is a great set-- the comic is nice, but the fact that you're getting action figures of a legendary scene you've likely never seen is pretty amazing. She's well-done too, so read on!
