Wicket: Comics Spain vs Kenner

Many Star Wars collectors will be familiar with the Return of the Jedi Wicket, but the Kenner animated version of this character is harder to find. It is roughly the same size as the Comics Spain figure, but the sculpt is very different. I enjoy owning both versions of this character, and its debatable which version sports the better likeness - but the Comics Spain version certainly has better paint deco and detailing. While the Kenner animated version may appear more bland, the colors come straight from the cartoon, which makes him look a bit more accurate. The Comics Spain Wicket figures vary in color, but are all a bit too bright to match his appearance in the cartoon.
