The dewback was in one shot of the original movie? Kenner missed nothing. That’s Ricky Schroder in the commercial, right after he starred in The Champ (1979), his film debut, and right before he starred with William Holden in The Earthling (July, 1980).

    Totally remember those. Somehow I was intrigued how they made a trap door in the Dewback’s back in order to compromise for the fact that SW figures couldn’t straddle anything.

    lol I said “Dewback’s back.”

    It was kinda weird, ‘coz it was like, a square “chunk” of lizard flesh that would collapse into the body. I dunno, I couldn’t get over that. I remember doing that over and over just to watch the figures sink in.
