Please use this thread to discuss any potential TLJ Chewbacca figures. I suppose any existing Chewbacca figure will do :p

all depends on the sculpt for this one. I have so many Chewie's now that another would just be overkill. I'd rather they focus on the new characters from the films.

for characters like chewie, c3po and r2d2 and even bb8, unless there is a major change to them, they need not to remake them. Keep it like they were in the true vintage days..1 sculpt for the entire run of the trilogy. Adding sensorscope and removable limbs were the exceptions back in the day

Well, I am always short on Chewies and 3pos. I keep a "cast" together for each film and typically each planet/ location and when I get my Star wars VIII set together I will need a Chewy. So if they put a good one on a TVC2 card I will get it. Maybe multiple if its a good one for the different locations and to back fill the rest of the Saga.

I honestly think they should keep figures like this in the 5POA line, and not bog down the SA line with unneeded repacks. The SA one every one else already has is just fine.

Agreed. I don't see how they could feasibly top the VOTC version and its derivatives.

There are probably (definitely) enough new fans out there that don't have a SA Chewie. Our small community doesn't represent everyone. I, for one, would buy a new SA TLJ Chewie.

Masterfett

Enough new fans that would pay the current, or possibly higher price though? Based on all the pegwarmers in TBS, it doesn't appear so. I've got nothing against said repacks as long as it doesn't impede the line. And that is a very slippery slope.

I haven't seen a TBS Chewie in long time. Long time. Evergreen characters like Chewie/Vader/R2 always sell. The pegwarmers are the over shipped Han/Leia wave. I get your point about unneeded repacks though; I just wouldn't consider Chewie to be one. Plus IF there is going to be a TLJ Chewbacca figure it will probably be a new figure and not a repack.

They can afford it, what with all the money they're saving by not making playsets.

a real fur Chewbacca in 4" format with articulation would be awesome. I'd even go for how Funko gave us the Wolfman with flocked fur on him for SDCC. it was a cool little feature and made the figure stand out. not sure if Hasbro could do the same on 4" SA Chewbacca but it's a thought.

Damn that is a great idea, it would need to be sturdy and not stink. I still like my action collection Wampa and Chewies that are real feel fur.

Chewie's paint apps look too contrasting to me. Maybe it will look better in hand though. The Porg is a neat accessory, it'll be interesting to see what they are/do in the movie. I hope its not something like "we need something cute we can sell a plush of."

The Porg reminds me more of the Hoojib species from the comics.
If it's telepathic and sentient then that is definitely where they got the idea from.
The Hoojibs looked more like rabbits but, they had big eyes like the Porgs.

I would have preferred a droid / creature pack, with BB-8, BB-9E and a couple Porgs, instead of packing the creature with Chewie. I don't need / want another Chewie figure, especially one that looks like this, though I do like SW creatures, so hopefully the Porg is repacked.

The comment on the face is spot on for me. I do like the sculpt of the figure just fine. But the face is "off" to me. Its not neutral, its not smiling, but its also certinly not mencing or growly enough to be a spectacular look either. Its just sort of....i don't know......."there" i guess.

09-02-2017, 07:03 PM
They sculpted Chewie's brow ridiculously large, that's what's throwing off the facial sculpt for me. Chewbacca should have a relatively flat forehead and not the Neanderthal brow that Hasbro gave this latest version.

ZX3
09-02-2017, 08:47 PM
His bandoleer is too short- the pouch should go down to his knee, not stop at his hip. The TFA version had the same problem.
It's not a purse, it's a satchel.

SaberSonic83
09-03-2017, 12:35 PM
Sorry if someone already asked this, but does the Porg do any Force Link sounds? Was curious if the chip was that small to fit inside the little guy.

I only ask because Rey's gun accessory from the 2 pack actually has it's own Force Link sounds. The gimmick has ended up being pretty detailed and cool, when it works properly. Doesn't quite work well as advertised in the instructions.

I was in the process of making the sitting baby porg we see in the "Making of" trailer. (I'm assuming it is young because it seems smaller and has a dark head, unlike the orange feathers of the larger Porgs.

I may just make a cast of this and model it with different clays (shrinking/Fimo) so I get a variety of sizes. When the clay is soft, some of the mouths can be opened.
Come Easter, there are chicks with red plastic legs that can be used for Porg feet.

It's annoying to have to buy Chewie though. He's the real accessory in the pack.

Kids must buy lots of Chewies, as it's never been released in the basic single carded line for TFA, except for the Armor-Up but I have never seen it in person at retail here and it was overpriced online for a 5poa figure with an useless accessory.

I've also bought this version of Chewie and I was pleased to see him released single carded like the other figures this time. The 5poa figures I keep and display carded in my collection and I found -eventhough the figure is quite ugly- it fits more nicely than the Armor-Up TFA version with the rest of the figures.

Let's be honest. Among kids, Chewie is one of the most popular characters along with BB-8, and is easily the most recognizable among non-fans. While people may be buying him just for the porgs, this is one figure I can see the proverbial "grandparents picking up as a gift for the kids who like Star Wars," so that any figures left after the collectors are done are likely being purchased by people like that. Really, other than Yoda and C-3PO, who else in the TLJ line is as iconic a character who also still resembles their OT counterpart?

If this Chewbacca had a better head sculpt, I would probably get it. But the face is just too weird looking.

I broke down and got it using my TRU 10% coupon. It wasn't worth the effort of waiting for a better sale. I made a 3 piece mold and will see how they turn out.

I like that the bandolier isn't affixed to the body. I'm sure I can customize this figure into something I like.

Honest review: I really dig this Chewie over the TFA version. The sculpt is better, with the right arm bent slightly to give it a vintage SW feel. The joints on mine were perfect (not too tight, not too loose). The bandolier is separate, but sits well in the indented torso so that it stays in place (unlike the TFA figure, where the bandolier was loose and fell off). The paint on the legs does not match the torso, so it looks odd. The bowcaster is well proportioned, but it does break into three pieces very easily, so it is a bit of a pain for play (just use an older bowcaster). The porg looks great, and despite my initial reservations, it is a great accessory.

Overall, I like this figure. I initially was going to pass (We all have too many Chewies), but it ended up being one of my favorite figures of the line. Grab one if you are on the fence.

I like it just fine. The open mouth is better than the TFA sculpt, which I thought was too neutral. The bent elbow and forward leg stance make the figure a bit more dynamic as well.

I think the headsculpt is all wrong. The forehead ruins it, its too big.

I feel the face looks kind of pinched.

I do like the rest of the sculpt, I was actually thinking of picking him up and trying the FA head on it.

I think this figure looks okay, but all the Chewies I own (VOTC, SOTDS, TCW, TFA Falcon Pack-In) definitely outweigh it. I want the porg, but will hold out unless this hits clearance.

I took your advice and am I glad I did, this Chewie is pretty awesome, even like the headsculpt! Have swapped out the bowcaster though, the included one was just too flimsy. Thanks Teedo!

The best thing about this Chewie is you can tilt his head side-to-side. He does that move all the time in the movies, and this is the first figure that could mimic that.

Glad I could help. I may have been a few beers in when I wrote that review, but I stand by it. I think that the 5POA line is heading in the right direction.

Decided to get this guy today, as heís unexpectedly sold through almost everywhere and thereís little chance Iíll have luck with clearance for this guy. Heís a pretty good figure. Definitely better Chewie figures, but he does perfectly fine on the shelf as a counterpart to Old Man Han. I do still kind of prefer the TFA Falcon pack-in version though. Side note: the Porg clips on to the Falcon. Just place the legs in between one of the steering handles.
