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. (Most importantly, he was able get the accurate brown hood placed on the little furball figure.) Check it out, and the big smile says it all.
