Image Bank: SL18 Chewbacca

By Mike — Tuesday, December 21, 2010

While the head sculpt is "New Hope" Chewie, being originally released as part of the 2005 Early Bird Kit promotion, Hasbro spattered some slightly distinguishing paint apps for the Hoth treatment. The body itself, with its awesome sculpt and mostly masterfully hidden articulation, not to mention the almost perfect scale, originated from VOTC Chewie in 2004. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Just repaint it. It certainly applies here.
