Gus Lopez's latest entry in the "Protos and Premiums" series continues on Starwars.com with a look back at the vintage Kenner 1979 Patrol Dewback.
See the excerpt below:
"The Dewback creature, which is only seen briefly in a couple of scenes in the original Star Wars: A New Hope, enabled Kenner to introduce mid-range price point accessories for the extremely popular Star Wars small action figure line. This original prototype has distinctive features missing from the production toy such as a notched belt around the Dewback's waist, simulated pockets for the stormtrooper rider's legs, the Dewback's distinctive eyebrow and puckered lips, and sharper, elongated toes. In fact, every part of this Dewback is completely different from the finished product."
