This Chewbacca action figure was released in
2012 in The Clone Wars Collection.
Hasbro gave the figure twelve joints and included
four accessories (removable bandolier, bowcaster, bowcaster with green projectile, trandoshan blaster rifle).
Here is what we noticed when we took a closer look at the figure:
- This Chewbacca is a slight repaint and re-work of the 2011 Clone Wars Chewbacca
- Hasbro widened the notch on both sides of the hip compared to the 2011 Chewbacca (thank you to Bryan Day and Gus Hound from www.coreplanets.com for noticing and informing us about this difference)
- The fur in the facial area appears to be a lighter brown, the eyes are blue and the pink color on the lips is gone
- Chewbacca is almost one and a half times as tall as a regular Clone Wars figure
- Chewie has no balancing problems
- All three weapons fit well into the hands
- The bandolier is removable
The articulation details are as follows: ball-jointed neck, 2 ball-jointed shoulders, 2 ball-jointed elbows, 2 swivel wrists, ball-jointed waist, 2 swivel legs, 2 ball-jointed knees
Chewbacca is captured by Trandoshan hunters, who kidnap victims and hunt them as part of a deadly game.
The Wookiee comes across a group of Padawans who have been kidnapped, including
Ahsoka, Anakin's Padawan. Chewbacca joins them to find a way to escape from the planet.
His immense strength and his technological skills give the group much-needed support.
