Hi guys is there a Wicket spear and a Romba spear ? or are they just the same ?

In the tig guide it is writen as they are the same. But on Rebelscum they are writen as they are different ?

Yes they are different, under a microscope the Wicket spear has fabric strands from Leia poncho on the tip, Romba's does not. lol!

For some the Wicket and Romba spears are different...

For others, they are basically the same. Very Happy

Ewok Spear ? Emper-cvr

I have never paid too much attention to these two spears, but have had the RS guide as my own reference. But now I'm wondering if it isn't possible that this is just a difference made during tooling? Or that the molds used for Romba, were just old and worn (hence the lack of details)? Because they have many identical features (dents and lines) and why put money and energy into creating such a similiar weapon?

Romba's Spear and Wicket's Spear are the same mold and any variance is just as someone else pointed out, the silly mold was probably getting maxed out making minor flaws in the production. Odds are the same "Romba" quality weapon could be found in Tri-Logo or POTF versions of "Wicket" too if there actually is any difference (which I firmly believe there is not). Anyone touting it's a "Romba" over a "Wicket" version is probably only gonna be found in regards to someone selling looking to make a couple extra bucks off the weapon cause really they are one in the same.

Very funny, guys Very Happy

I was just asking, so I could place the correct spear with the correct figure if there was a romba and a wicket spear.

Thanks for the link marco.

So a ewok spear is just a ewok spear. But there is 2 variants on the tig guide and maybe many more spear variants there is not in the tig guide.

Can we be sure they can all be found on wicket and romba cards ?

I don't have any romba moc, but I have 3 wicket moc so maybe I should try to check the spears on those cards :scratch:

Look for the one that says "Made in Lower East Side Endor" on it. Very rare.
