I don't know if this has been posted here before, but I figured I would bring it up. Good lord, this thing is horrific. But yes, it was a test for Hasbro to produce a real furry Chewbacca figure in the 4" scale. This thing would be the ultimate in horrific, thank the maker it was never produced. :eek: :)


Unproduced Chewbacca - Flocked Hair Concept Piece

Between the Chewbacca Dejarik Champion and Cloud City Capture figures, Hasbro toyed with the idea of making a Chewbacca that had "real" hair instead of molded. The engineers ordered a couple of shots of the Chewy Dejarik figure from China and flocked them with what appears to be similar to Joe hair. They hand painted the bandolier strap and bag, and touched up his features, and this was the result. The hair is dark tan in color and cropped very close to the body. Ultimately, Hasbro decided that the hair hid too many features and they decided to scrap the idea. This is the only example of this concept available. A rare and unique "what might have been" piece that would be a wonderful addition to any collection, especially one that focuses on Chewbacca.

Haha! Looks like "Chewie the overgrown Ewok"! :D

That would have been very interesting to see it released to the public. It looks nothing like a Wookiee, nor the 12" furry Chewie, it looks like Chewie dyed and shaved his fur. :p

Ha! That's what I was thinking, I looked at him and said, "Mmm! Wookie cookie!" Just bake at 325 until golden brown.

Its Chia Chewie. Water his fur and watch it grow. Chi-Chi-Chi-Chia.

P.S. - Chia Chewie is rubbing himself down with fertilizer in that picture. He wants to grow nice and healthy fur.

Even if the color was right, the length wasn't even close. I guess that engineer didn't get the big promotion he was hopeing for.

That would have easily been the most hillarious figure ever produced!!!! Forget about the POTJ Beaver Skywalker in X-Wing Uniform, and Obi-Wan Kenobi with Milk Chocolate Cloak!!!! I would have loved to see this hanging on the pegs next to the new Mace Windu with Lolipop Lever!!!!! I think I'm going to take my Dejarik Champion Chewbacca to the Rag Shop today and make my own!!!!!!! wooHOO!

Now that's an EU fig - puberty Chewie! He's shown as just sitting back and relaxing with his hands behind his head thinkin he's everything, as all us teens do. Or you can put his hands on his belly for when he's got the munchies, and of course theres the peach fuzz! :crazed:


This probably would've been funnier had I posted it when the thread was first posted. :D

I am happy that this figure was never made. I am glad that Hasbro was finally able to spot a bad figure!

That has to be about the most hysterically ugly thing I have ever seen!!! Next to mokey-faced Leia, of course!
