The reason he looks weird in TFA is because his head is too large for his body. In RotJ, he was not a man in a mask: he was a puppet.Not impressed. Something looks weird about Nunb, both in the film and this figure. Also it really should have come with a helmet.
I honestly can't see where there would be that much of a difference, as we don't know the particulars of their lifespan. Look at Chewy, he looks younger in the St than he did in the OT. Go figure.Honestly, I feel a little let down. Nien Nunb's appearance doesn't change much between ROTJ and TFA, so this figure feels more like a retread than anything new. I would have preferred him with his helmet, even if it meant a - gasp! - nanner visor.
I kind of figured that Wookies have their own version of the "Benjamin Button" Disease. Of course you would have to ignore the way Chewie's family was presented in the holiday special if that was the case (although maybe Lumpy was his father and not his son......)Look at Chewy, he looks younger in the St than he did in the OT. Go figure.
I agree that Chewie should have had a bit of age showing. I picture it like an old dog, with the gray concentrated mainly on his face and around his eyes, with the rest of his body looking mostly normal.Not necessarily a gray Chewie. But some grayish peppering, or a streak like Rogue has. Or a more pronounced grayish beard area. Something that makes him look older than he was in ROTJ, but not look younger!
I suppose it all depends on the mileage.To put that into a human's persepective, the average age being 70, how different do we really look from say 25-32? 58-65?
