Chewbacca: What a Wookie!

Chewbacca! Chewie! Han Solo's tall furry fierce warrior first mate and best friend. Inspired by George Lucas' dog Indiana (also the inspiration for the name for Indiana Jones) Chewbacca is one of the best characters of the entire Star Wars saga. Whilst a young tie fighter pilot Han Solo saw the Imperials enslaving the Wookie home world of Kashyyyk. He was ordered to skin Chewbacca for his pelt but he refused and was court marshaled out of the Empire's ranks. For saving his life Chewbacca swore a life debt to Han and together they went on to become infamous smugglers and prominent members of the Rebel Alliance. Chewbacca comes with more articulation than most versions have had. With ball jointed knees, ankles, swivel hips, ball jointed neck, ball jointed shoulders, elbows, and swivel wrists. He comes with his signature Wookie Bowcaster blaster rifle. This Chewbacca is available as part of the latest wave of Saga Legends (still on shelves). The only draw back are the eyes on this figure, this figure's were painted a bit too close together and make Chewie here look a bit cross-eyed. This figure is Highly Recommended!


  1. One of the better detailed Chewie figs that I've seen. As for the eyes, I have a suggestion... let the Wookiee "wince" LOL

  2. Yeah he's one of my favorite versions to date. Hahahah this comment made my day! You're a funny Jedi, Randy!
