Been wanting this kind of figure in 6" for a while. Sweet!

Yakface has better images of the Chewie & 3P0 set. Really nice!

The Chewie/3PO back pack will look good next to Bespin Escape Leia!

Can Lobot and Ugnaughts be far off?

I'm a sucker for C-3po with removable limbs, great idea for a set.

This one doesn’t feel like a must-have to me. Might pass on it initially and see if I can get lucky on clearance.

Also of note - Chewie's hair is a little extra ruffled?

As compared to the more slicked back look of the ANH figure?

My point is, this is feeling pretty damn cool.
I like the wiring coming out of 3PO'd arms too!

I would spend $40 on this, maybe 50? :disgusted: :awesome:

It's nice that we can now have an OT Chewie with more of a closed mouth compared to the open mouth ANH version. It's nice to have options now. I know the ST Chewie's mouth is closed but I never cared for the color tone too much. Didn't seem right to me.

Two figures I didn't think I needed more versions of... but now I have to have these. This looks really cool!

I can't emphasize enough how much I'm looking forward to this set! Been waiting patiently for this one. It will be nice to set up a display with Bespin Escape Leia, Lando, R-2 and a bunch of Stormtroopers chasing them. :)

I want it. I don't have a C-3P0 so this will work. Probably will be my 4th Chewbacca but oh well. I think it is good for an exclusive.

3P0's eyes turn red depending on temperature according to the press release, similar to the Dryden figure

I just placed my order. I had an Amazon gift card with $15 left so I put it to good use.

Pre-ordered mine! So much stuff going up today! All we're missing now is Walgreens Obi-Wan, Spirit Yoda, Walmart Jedi Luke, & C-3PO/Babu to go live!

Pre-ordered. I don't collect much 6" stuff but it's a nice set. I'll gladly upgrade my Chewie and sell off the ANH version.

Didn't hesitate and pre-ordered as soon as I saw it on Amazon. We really needed this to complete the ESB group of figures. But, I do hope that someday we get an Archive Bespin Luke with photo real tech.

Agreed, I got into 6" late in the game and decided I was going to have an ESB focused collection. Bespin Luke will be my Luke. Right now the only one I have is the recent Stormtrooper Luke. I do plan on getting Jedi Luke...but I love that costume and he'll probably end up being my only ROTJ Luke.

Photo real Bespin Luke as an Archive figure please!

Preordered this one, I've always liked this combo of both characters.

Here's hoping this Chewie has improved arm articulation compared to the original one. The range of motion on the elbows of the original make it difficult to get natural looking 2 handed poses with the bowcaster.

I don’t get this at all. What’s wrong with the ANH version?
I haven't looked at the pics too closely, but the Solo Chewie fixed some issues with the mold/articulation and I'm hoping those fixes were carried over to this release. Namely the torso was improved. I've seen some customs converting the Solo Chewie into an OT Chewie because of the head and torso.
