If you got Chewbacca from The Black Series [FOTD #2,165], this is basically that mold. Key changes include better fur paint, the interior of the mouth is painted pink now, and less raccoony eye paint. Chewie is darker overall, but it's still the 2004 Original Trilogy Collection body. Hasbro has seemingly decided they can't or won't ever try to do better, 15 years later. It's much improved and doesn't have the weird light brown streaks that may imply possible accidents. Chewie's claws, nails, and a lot of the fleshy parts of his hand and feet are also painted. This is definitely the best deco we've seen on this mold.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
