    Excellent Job on Cloud City Chewie

    I would like to congratulate Hasbro on one of their best figures to date- Cloud City Capture Chewbacca!

    I really love the articulation- I don't take a lot of figures from the packages, only those that look like they are fun to play with. (hint: I buy two of the best figures). I think articulation like this is the key to the future of Star Wars figures.

    The light up eyes in C-3PO was an excellent surprise as well. the level of detail in the scult and the paint job just blows me away when I hold it next to the 1995 Chewbacca.

    If this is where the Saga line is going, you can count me in for the long haul!

    He's OK, but I still think that Hasbro could make a better Chewie.

    Ahem, don't listen to someone who names himself after a flying fat man, Hasbro.

    CC Chewie is awesome! By far the best Chewbacca figure ever! I don't really care too much about the Threepio parts so the fact that you need a Master's Degree in Engineering to get it to look right is no big deal.

    I love the elbow and wrist articulation, along with the ball-jointed shoulders. But what surprised me the most was the neck articulation. I never imagined that I would have a Chewie that could not only turn his head side to side but up and down too. That was just too cool.

    If I were to grade this figure I would give him an A++!

    Definatly one of the best figures in the Saga Line. I don't think there is anyway that they could improve on Chewbacca. Maybe the often requested removable bandolier, but that's about it. If the future of the Saga line includes more gems on par with Chewie: CC, I see great things coming down the pipe.

    It was a toss up for me between CC and Mech Chewie for who was the best. In the end, however, articulation won out over detailing and I picked CC Chewie. He's just a lot more versatile.

    Both are great figures though.

    Now, we could just get an accessory pack with the crossbow from 25th Chewie, that would be great.

    Sort of off topic, but sort of relevant as well, are there any other possible versions of Chewie left to make? Aside from more accurately sized versions of POTF2 releases?

    I dunno BigBarada. Other then accurately scaled versions of Chewbacca: Hoth and Chewbacca: Boushh's Bounty, I can't think of many new versions of Chewie. Other then maybe Chewbacca: Trash Compactor. Give Chewie the wet look, and maybe pack in the Dianoga as a Deluxe 2-pack.

    A more accurate DS Prisoner Chewie? Tarzan Chewie? Me-Hungry Chewie with dead animal?

    We should've gotten a bowcaster with the Chewie anyways I think, afterall, they're including that huge dish with Padme Pilot.

    I agree, great job on Chewie. My second favorite figure from the saga line. Second only to Bespin Luke. I think that proves that more articulation is a good thing.

    I forgot about the Endor Chewie; but in all honesty I would really just like to have an all-purpose ROTJ Chewie, who has the articulation and accessories to fill in for every scene in the movie (prisoner chain, bowcaster, dead animal, net, rack to be tied to by Ewoks, etc.).

    Hoth Chewie would be okay, but easy enough to recreate with a little creative paint application. DS Escape Chewie would be cool, though. Especially if he was released alongside improved versions of Han and Luke Stormtrooper.
