I just got two Chewbaccas (one for me and one for a friend) along with Han Solo and Obi Wan Starfighter Pilot. Has anyone else ran into a Chewbacca?

I haven't seen hide nor......err......hairs of Chewie anywhere. Where did you find him?

I found them at a local Wal-Mart.

Chewbacca is the only figure that I am currently missing. Everything else I have found, or others have found for me. My sister in Colorado picked up Obi-Wan Starfighter Pilot, and saw a few Han's a couple of nights ago at her Wal-Mart. No Chewbacca yet. I'm tempted to hit Ebay for him. :(

I would wait JarJar. The case seemed to contain the following:
Han Solo
Chewbacca
Obi Wan Pilot
Luke Bespin Duel
Vader Bespin Duel

That's what I think was in the cases anyways.

No JJB, stay with us!!! You know he'll show up, have patience you must. :)

I haven't run into him yet, just a single Han that I found from digging through some figures.

There is a case coming with 3 Han's, 3 Chewie's, and I assume 3 Obi-Wan's. Not sure if it's out yet, but It should be showing up soon. Even if I do hit Ebay, I never pay more then a buck or 2 over retail. I keep an eye out for the mistake auctions or the ones that don't seem to be noticed for one reason or another. :)

I've found Chewie a few times in the last couple weeks at local Wal-Marts. It seems Wal-Mart has been getting several shipments of the Bespin and Chewie Waves recently - at least in my neck of the woods.

Yeah, I found Chewbacca...at Amazon.com a couple weeks ago. :D

DarthJdog, why do you need 6 of each one??

I've ran into a horde of Han Solo's, but strangely there were no chewies in sight :(
There musta been about 16-20 Hans. Some scalper took a bunch of them and there were still plenty left for me and the kids gathering around the Star Wars section. Some other scalper must have bought all the chewies. I decided to buy chewy from Planet Action Figure yesterday, cause I've spent too much time driving around looking for him. Now all I need is Djas...

Mista_Carrot, if you didn't see any JSF Obi-Wan's either, then they probably just got in the case with a lone Han packed into the Bespin case. :)

I saved myself the gas money/time and bought from kebco toys. got my shipment last friday of Obi-Wan, Han and chewie. I like chewie alot, i like the "9 points of articulation!" and then a picture of chewie "raising the roof" in honor of his articulation abilities. Nice figure!

Chewie will be the last figure I need if all my trades are successful.

Actually at Wal-Mart this morning, there must have been no less than 20 each of Chewie, Han, Geo. Rescue Mace, Bespin Vader & Luke, JSP Obi-Wan, and FB Jango Fett. Tons and tons of 'em. Lots of Acklays too.

Wow, you must have quite a collection. Do you open them or just display them?

06-26-2002, 02:01 PM
why the eff do you need 8 lukes.

I_Deus
06-26-2002, 02:12 PM
I DO NOT Open them at all they are in there original cases and then kept in moisture resistnat chests. I have just started collecting this year to help my mother out. She has everything except all the originals. She has no more room to hold them in her house really so I am helping. The reason that I have 8 bloody lukes is so that I can trade for what I need and also because its an investment. In a year or two they might be worth enough to trade for other rares!

I lucked out and found Chewbacca at a Wal-Mart last weekend. They also had several tons of Obi-Wan pilots (I picked up a spare; be posting about that in the trading forum) and a few Hans. There were only 2 Chewies. I bought one and left the other on the lower pegs at kid eye level. Would've picked it up to trade with you guys, but the paint job was really bad. Seriously awful, actually.

Haven't opened him yet though- Is he cool?

Chewie rules. C3PO isn't quite as cool as you think he would be, but it's an awesome figure altogether.

i'm still searching for most of those figures in that assortment! ugh!

No luck with Chewie or Han. Everything else has been plentiful.

Senator Binks
06-26-2002, 08:50 PM
Agreed that C-3PO is good but not quite as good as it looked. This figure would be perfect if they added a sound chip to do a Wookiee roar, though.

I found Chewie online at Amazon, along with Luke and Vader Bespin, and Han Solo. I did find the Obi Wan Star Fighter Pilot at KB Toys though.
