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.

Ok first I was surprised that you were not the first to post your collection in this thread :lol: :wink: But I forgive you, since I have not had time to share mine yet :oops: :lol:

Also one of my favorite figures and I still have my childhood chewie and damn he is a beater today :lol:

I must admit I never wish chewie head could turn, I think it would look wrong on this figure if it could turn :? I agree the crossbow could be better, but it was first when I got to old to play with it that I saw the crossbow was wrong :lol:

Lovely army of variants that you have, thanks for all the great pictures and info about the figures 8)

and that reseal looks fantastic, great to see another palitoy card 8)

They were all reseals that I amassed whilst on the hunt for the right one for me but I think nearly all of them have been sold on now. On the plus side though must of them went to people on here so I'm very happy to see them go to goos homes :D
