Not just a reissue but a repaint!

and a very fine looking repaint at that. Would have prefered the VOTC mold but this sculpt seems to have scrubed up well. I am buying it!

This may be a different headsculpt, if you look at the OTC figure and this, it seems very different. And I dont just think its the paint.

It's the same headsculpt as the POTJ Millennium Falcon Mechanic Chewbacca ... which I believe was rehashed in the OTC line. I think it's the same head. The new paint apts just make it look better.

I was wondering that myself. I'm hoping there's a large collar ring on the other end of the chain that just slips over Chewie's head. If that's the case, the collar could probably be used with a better Chewbacca like the VOTC sculpt.

I wonder if the loop at the end of the chain by Chewbacca's head is what Boussh would hold onto meaning the end that attaches to Chewie is hidden behind the insert.
As long as the chain can be attached this figure is a great upgrade to the POTF Chewie in Chains!

This will be a good addition, even if it is a re-paint. The sculpt is good, and the metal chain is even better.
The POTF2 Chewbacca was completely out of scale, and the plastic chain never looked right..
This may be another replacement figure!

Well, the point of the Early Bird was to give collectors 4 figures that won't be released in the regular line. A Chewbacca is a Chewbacca. He doesn't change outfits, so by giving us a carded Chewie and a metal chain (which they could've put in the kit) the point of having Chewie in the EB is rather moot.

The differnce in VOTC and this Chewie is minimal IMO. They're both terrific sculpts and look very similar.

The Early Bird Chewie is as he appeared in ANH, and there is certainly a difference in Chewie from ANH and the Chewie in ESB and ROTJ (the style of the hair on his head).

Maybe a Chewie's just a Chewie, but to me theres no way I'd stick an ANH Chewie anywhere near anything ROTJ related http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

And theres a lot of articulation difference between the VOTC Chewie and the Saga Chewie. I'll definitely pick this one up, but looking back at it they should have just tossed this chain in with the VOTC Chewie. Oh well though :$

This Chewie IS far better than getting a rehash of the POTF2 "Boushh's Prisoner" Chewie though, which is part of the reason why I'll be buying him. That and the fact that the figure, despite not being as good as a VOTC Chewie (which I wouldn't expect Hasbro to release again except under a special circumstance) is still a good figure...plus you get a metal chain, so you get a good ROTJ Chewie with a good chain.

Ah ... gotcha. The Early Bird figures were never supposed to be part of this new line, so the inclusion of a Chewbacca figure doesn't bother me in the least. And though I love the sculpt of this Chewbacca figure, it's as different as night and day compared to the VOTC one. The only other Chewbacca figure that compares to the VOTC one is the Early Bird figure ... and that's because it has the same body.

At first it was going to be, but then Hasbro said it was a "stand-alone" product that was made to commemorate the original Early Bird offer. Think of it as its own line, if you will.

I thought the Early Bird figures were simply the first four VOTC figures, and as such considered a part of the OTC range.

The way I've been following it is that the vintage-style and even the transitional figures were both simply offshoots of the Original Trilogy Collection, and everything released after ROTS will be considered Saga Collection (not to be confused with the Saga range, released between 2002-2004).

Why not?

Boushh
10-06-2005, 03:22 PM
Chewbacca wasn't in the first wave of VOTC. That was Han, Leia, Luke, and Ben Kenobi. The reason Luke, Leia, Chewbacca, and R2 are in the EB Set is because they were the four figures originally released in the EB Set of the Vintage line. It is simply an update of the original set and stands alone. I think I have seen it classified in with the OTC and VOTC, but I think that is just because they don't really fit in with any of the other lines.

10-06-2005, 03:28 PM
I see...Thanks! I didn't buy the Early Bird figures, so I suppose I didn't know enough to make the connection.
Are the Early Bird figures the same (or similar) sculpts as the vintage-style OTC figures or are they completely unique?

I believe the Luke and Leia are completely new sculpts (though I think the Luke shares the same head as the VOTC version), but don't offer as much articulation as the VOTC figures did.

The Chewie, however, is nothing more than the VOTC Chewie with an "ANH style" head.

And I believe the R2 is the VOTC version (see the second link I've posted below).

Luke definitely does NOT have the VOTC headsculpt. The VOTC sculpt was grotty. This is probably the best Luke head to date.

Now that I just checked the photo archives....yikes, you were right Matt. THATS the reason why I never bought the VOTC figure....or maybe it was one of two or three reasons....meh. At least I forgot what that figures head looked like, thats a good thing in my book http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

The Early Bird Luke's head definitely is different....of the better sorts.

10-06-2005, 03:56 PM
Though I don't care much for Chewie (Mechanic)'s articulation, it is one of the finest ROTJ sculpts, and I agree that what seems like an awesome paint improvement, so far, and a metal leash make it markedly new and fresh enough to warrant it's purchase.

Personally, I also can always add more Wooks to my army.

The only problem I have with using the Chewbacca mechanic sculpt for this figure is the raised arms that can't be put down at his side. If the band around Chewie's neck is a stretchy material, it may be possible to remove the chain accessory and put it on a VOTC Chewbacca.

Didn't Chewbacca have binder cuffs on when he arrived with Boushh?

Darth_Tedious
10-12-2005, 07:13 AM
Yeah... he WAS bound! Maybe they're a pack-in.

If not, I think I have a pair of binders I can stick on there. I'm pretty sure he has swivel elbows. So his arms can go behind his back.

While I will of course buy this figure, I have many gripes with it.

Firstly, the Mechanic Sculpt has always bugged me for the fact that it has the twisty waist which totally ruins the bowcaster strap. Secondly, this figure has been re-hashed twice already. Most importantly however, is that it is out of continuity. The original figure is the medium hair of ESB Chewie, and nowhere in Jedi is his totally out of control long hair more evident than in Jabba's palace. It just does not look like that character in that scene. The sad truth is that if they ever made a screen accurate Chewie prisoner figure no one would buy it because he looks so gimpy in that scene.

Basically, they are just throwing us a chain and hoping we don't think about it. (And frankly, I should probably not have put this much thought into it already http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif) On the plus side, it is a vast improvement on the original POTF 2 Chewie in Chains, which is the worst Chewbacca figure ever.

Boushh
10-14-2005, 03:35 AM
While I wasn't impressed with the POTF2 Chewbacca as Boushh's Bounty, I still say that the first POTF2 Chewbacca Steroid Banger is the worst Chewie ever. The mechanic sculpt is one of the better ones, although it was repacked already. The inclusion of a good chain works is enough to buy my love for this one! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

Being that it's metal, and that we now have a "Boushh's Prisoner" Chewie that is scaled correctly, I'd say it's worth it. Those two things may not be worth an extra $7 to you.

does anyone know what the correct version of the chain is on this figure? is it the one with the large loop at the top of the chain or the smalll loop at the top that is the same size as all the other chain link loops? i ask because i want to have the corrected one whichever that may be. i know i saw the small version first and all i'm seeing now is the large version. i know i know, silly stupid variations. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

I finally gave in to a lingering temptation. Of all the carkoon wave figures, this was the only figure i passed on to open. I only got the carded version of this. My impatience for the next wave lead me to buy an extra fig to ope. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif It does not really look good, but it still does complete the set.

Has anyone noticed the Chewbacca that comes in the latest revision cases has the Chewie with the small chain loop/ring? I've seen, between my local Walmart and Target, 6-7 Chewies with the small chain loop/ring.

Just picked that one up, so now I have both versions. I liked the smaller links, IMO, over the large loop hole

I finally picked up an opener of this figure, and boy does he look nice. Well done Hasbro, this are what repaints are supposed to be.

I finally picked up one, even though I'd "vowed" not to get the repacks in TSC unless they were significantly retooled or redeco'd. Well, during the "Toy Drought" of a few months back (at least in this area), I finally buckled and got both a Boba Fett and a Chewie.

He's an OK figure, sure, and looks pretty cool next to the Leia as Boushh.

hear hear. i must say though that this chewie does serve his own purpose and is great for the kids. and that chain makes him the only one you can use in a Jabba's Palace diorama without customizing.

i just dont like that head sculpt either...

I like this Chewbacca as Boussh captive figure. A good Return of the Jedi Chewbacca figure. Just give him the wookie bowcaster from any Chewbacca figure and this figure is all set to shoot at Biker scouts

I saw one at Walmart last week, felt bad for him and picked him up. He must of been there since January last year since his bubble was all foggy and scratched and the card looked horrible.

It was nice of you to rescue him from "The Island of Misfit Toys and Bent Up Cards". http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

So can this guy's chain be detached and attached to a VOTC Chewie?
