Already can see that the chin on Han is better than ANH version

That's just the "smiling" ANH Han stormtrooper head they've used as a placeholder.

At least it's an improvement on the TFA Chewie.

Glad to see he's back to the darker OT hair color.

I honestly can't believe how bad their Solo Chewie looked, or even the TFA version. I like the ANH one a lot, I really hope it's very similar to that one.

I think the only way this could make me bite is if he came with mechanic tools/goggles, and a C3PO in pieces with net back pack.

I think those accessories are a given if this figure is made. At least the net with C3PO’s broken parts. I'm hoping it happens as that would be a fun way to display a Chewie.

If they release a new better version with cargo net and C-3PO parts I will double dip on chewy. But not till then.

Would be nice.

:lecture This ^

I have the other two Chewies (My TFA was not that bad unlike many photos that I have seen) The OT iterations of Chewie are my favorite! Cargo net with C3PO in pieces would be hard to resist)

I've been holding off on grabbing a Chewie for this release. 3P0 backpack Chewie would be such a great release.

So is it a fair bet that if HT is producing the ESB version teased here that they are not producing the "Solo" one that was teased in those PO shots?

It’s HT 2018..of course they will do both..they want our money :slap

If it's released, I bet it'll be a re-release of ANH Chewie w/the mentioned accessories. It could be worse..FA Chewbacca with OT colour scheme. I just don't think it's going to beat out the original. Those Empire accessories are going to go for a fortune on eBay. Will need to check Toy Anxiety like 10 times a day when this guy gets released.

Yep, they need a backpack 3PO to sell this. RotJ Chewie at least has the parted hair style but for a real Empire Chewie to stand out, he needs to be lugging around Goldenrod. I have to admit, HT has really gotten their money’s worth on the Chewie R&D.

Well they haven't got my Chewy money, every iteration after the first was s**t imo.

But they do have the tooling for C3PO. They had the TFA version (not sure if that even got released ??) right. So it would be possible.

ROTJ Chewie could also feature the "Boussh prisoner" chain.

But then we'd all want an updated Boussh to go with it. And yes indeed, HT is working the Chewie R&D. Funny thing is, thus far, each release has gotten worse looking.

They do have the "furry body" thing down - how about some ewoks now?

They could probably have some pretty cool accessories though. Maybe a second headsculpt like Yoda.

I struggle to think about how I'll react if ewoks are announced lol. When I started HT collecting, I said, ANH only, then that went away to OT only, now PT/OT. If Ewoks and other random guys show up I don't know what I'll do.

They (meaning Hot Toys) has to know that this specifically is the one figure that they, frankly, screwed up on.

A proper ESB Chewie and all will be right in the Galaxy ...

Random question.

Has anyone ever removed the fur suit from a Hot Toys Chewbacca ? I'm after pattern to make another fur suit myself. Or to remove my own and make a pattern from that.Just removal seems not so easy. Thought there would be a zip at the back.

4 years and 100 figures into the line with no 3PO is craziness.

It is really weird. Is there an actual tally of how many Hot Toys Star Wars releases there are? Should count them up, gotta be close to a hundred if not more.

He is an annoying character though imo, maybe Howard thinks the same....


....that said, I did get the Sideshow version cheap at some stage. That's enough for me.

Well there you go then. I figured he was just saying a hundred but not literally meaning it. I guess Hot Toys has been producing Star Wars for a while already though.

You're being ridiculously unreasonable...HT released total 6 new SW annoucements over the last 3 months, 4 out of that are from OT. And yes Im counting that gonk little droid as a whole figure, judging based on that outrageous price tag they're currently charging their customers.

Bespin Han and new Chewie will get their turn in... unforeseeable future :monkey3.

Since they got the license, HT has basically released a new Star Wars figure roughly every 2 weeks if you do the math! Collectors from other genres and film franchises (other than Marvel) are pissed... :lol

Hot Toys doesn’t do releases to coincide with anniversaries, but I feel like we’ll see some more Original Trilogy figures next year since there won’t be anything else Star Wars to release for a while. I would think Han and Chewie from ESB would be good bets. Hopefully Lando too. Still have my fingers crossed that Chewie will come with broken 3PO, although it would be weird not having a regular version of 3PO first.

I really don’t think the Chewbacca figures that have been released have been that bad truthfully. I think collectors expect a bit too much at times. Considering that we got two versions of the character with full fur and they turned out as good as they did is impressive in my opinion. The first version is better I’ll admit.

Yeah, I kind of agree but it's weird that they seemed to get worse with each new version The ANH version is still by far the best to me, but it has issues with the face. I have three ANH Chewies (got a good deal on the first and crazy good deals on the second two) and the faces do vary, the last one I got was better than the first one.

I really would hope if they do an ESB Chewy (unlikely IMO) that they do an all-new head/face construction. Maybe a combo of part of the face sculpted but blended with fur parts added might improve the likeness.

12-11-2019, 09:58 PM
Yeah I was pretty happy with the single release of the ep.4 chewbacca. I've never even opened the 2 pack but i imagine the face will be worse on that one because it seems 2 packs and deluxes are done first. In any case it will blow the custom figure i got from ebay 15 years ago out of the water.

Original Chewie was a good rendition. It was ground-breaking in it's use of fur and it definitely is still the best version yet.

Some fellow Freaks have done amazing work on making it even better, too.

A real furry Chewbacca that didn't look like crap is one of the reasons I started collecting Hot Toys. Never thought I'd see the day and was blown away when the promo pics came out. I love mine.

I think its funny that I would probably have several Chewies on display, if I had the chance.

Chewie with Hoth Han...
Chewie with Bespin Han...
Chewie with RotJ Han...
Chewie with Han ("Solo" film)
