hey guys,hopefully sideshow reads this stuff and maybe use our suggestions.well I hope that they are doing a furry chewie in 1/6th scale.with that being said,what would be the ultimate exclusive to go with him?
I think they should do an alternate head of peter mayhew.then I would have to have two figs to display him as chewie and as peter in costume.
there is a bust that was made by a guy in hong kong that looks like a gentle giant bust.and it is awesome.I cant seem to find the pic of it right now but I will keep looking for it.

An alternate head of Peter Mayhew would be interesting but I think SS would go with the handcuffs from ANH. :D

I would love it if he came with a bag full of C3PO parts that he could wear on his back! :rock

Handcuffs or Long Rifle from ANH most likely. Peter Mayhew head would be awesome though.

C-3PO is a Loooooong shot.

He could come with a little packet of fake snow for the Hoth look

i think the best exclusive would be the oxygen mask to company the bespin han figure...

the handcuffs should be a standard accessory, especially since we are getting the han and luke stormies....

A Mayhew head would be terrible. I sure as heck wouldn't want a Prowse head with Vader. It would be cool to have broken 3PO but I am guessing it would be something small like the oxygen mask.

I think a full C-3PO in pieces would never happen, but they could maybe just do C-3PO's head from the scene Chewbacca was tinkering with it.

I think just C-3PO's head for Chewie to tinker with would be feasible :D

They could also do his welding goggles from ESB or a pan of tools, etc.

That would be awesome as well, it could be the upper torso with backwards head and maybe have the eyes light up!! :chew

this might be too innovative for Sideshow, but how about doing something like HT does with the Predators and provide different mouths to swap in and out?

Darth Waller

If the droids came first, they'd already have the molds of C-3PO to use for this. Or if Chewie came first, it might be a cool way to preview C-3PO by offering a couple pieces with Chewie.

A 1/6 scale mouse droid for him to scream at would be cool.

3PO head has my vote so far though. We should take all the ideas presented here and make a poll.

Oh wait, Sideshow will never make Chewy. Nevermind.:monkey2

I think we should worry about Sideshow making one. I think they really should, they can't just ignore such a major character just because if he is hard to make.

Don't you think they'd do ANH Chewie first? Seems like that's the way SS has been going about things as of late. If that's the case it would really limit the cooler options for an EX. Blaster rifle or hand cuffs might be about it? Did Chewie wear a headset at any point in the OT? Can't quite remember.

whats the difference between the films aside from the brief scenes with him in snow or with a chain around his neck? which reminds me that the chain would be a good exclusive.

Mostly the way the fur is combed on his face. In ANH it's mostly just brushed back over his head, but in Empire/ Jedi it's kind of arced over his eyes to create an eyebrow kinda look. At least that's what I remember.

Wow! Who knew Chewie was a lefty? He must have had a good career as a lefty! Did he work out of the bullpen?:lol:lol

He played for the Kashyyk Fuzzballs. That's why Han called him 'Fuzzball' in Empire. He was referring to his team name.

Definitely prefer the ANH look... that's the more iconic one for me.

Wasn't familiar with the Baseball look, guess that's my loss for not following sports :lol

What would be a really fun idea is if that Sideshow took the remaining figures that you would want for a Bespin scene and then each one could come with a damaged piece of C-3PO as an exclusive. That way over the course of 5 or 6 figures you could get all the pieces needed to fill up Chewbacca's backpack.

It would definitely generate some extra sales and would be a good way to reuse the C-3PO body if Sideshow put in the R&D.

good idea there and I guess SSC wouldn't have to fret about giving him articulation. just make him from light plastic too so that Chewie could still stand with him.

So that's where they got the look for the Unleashed figure. :D

Damn, that would take like two years to collect Threepio (which is probably sooner than we'll get him anyway)/

Id actually buy the exclusive if it was a bag of C3PO parts.

If not Ill just go with the regular edition.

I was thinking about this earlier as to how they would even do a 1:6 Chewey and make it look good. Real hair would be hard to pull off....and plastic would look cheap....

The rate sideshow is going..by the time they come out with one the cost would probably be cheaper to get a custom.
