Lovely examples.
Hoping to pick up my first MOC this weekend and I think this would be a fitting one. If anyone is looking to get rid of one please PM me. I'll be at Echo tomorrow.
RIP PM

I don’t have it in hand yet but I ordered this West End Games Chewy with some others last week. RIP Mr Mayhew, thanks for all the great memories :cry:

Great choice Lars.
Here are my tributes to the big guy.
No Palitoy’s I’m afraid.

Terrific stuff! Is this a reseal? It's very good if so, with a tremendous card and bubble.

Thanks for sharing :-)

A nice piece. Is this something that will be left as it is, or is it a piece you are suppose to hand paint?

Thanks for sharing :-)

Two beautiful cards, Nick, and well done for having examples of both Chewie photos :-)

Thanks for sharing.

I think they were originally intended to be painted but my very rusty figure painting skills from my warhammer days would likely ruin it :lol:
I’ll be leaving them all as bare metal

A timely choice Lars, with the very sad news of the passing of dear old Peter Mayhew.

This was always a favourite figure for me as a child, even if I did wish Chewie's head could turn and his crossbow looked a bit more like it was supposed to!

Here are mine. From left to right, I have, 1) a dark, shiny brown pouch figure with light blue eyes and large eye whites, 2) a narrower pouch figure with dark blue eyes and large eye whites, 3) a light blue eyes and small eye whites figure with green crossbow, 4) a metallic green/gold pouch (it REALLY doesn't photograph that way though!) figure with light blue eyes and large eye whites.

I have also photographed the COO's, plus 2 of the bowcasters close-up to show the sculpting differences in the ones that I own, and all four of mine with light behind them to show the translucency differences, especially in the green.

And lastly, I can offer up another trusty reseal.
