Chewbacca is a mold from which Hasbro has gotten a lot of easy sales. There have been at least five previous releases of this mold with different heads or accessories or packaging, and most of them look pretty much alike. This one has a new The Empire Strikes Back-specific head and cargo net, with a good paint job and effectively the same body as before. Articulation remains great, but he doesn't get a very tight grip on that Imperial blaster - but he can carry it. The C-3PO net sits nicely on his back, and the head sculpt looks marvelous. It's rare for Hasbro to do a non-roaring head these days, and this one gives you a better look at how he behaves in most of his appearances.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Amazon.
