||Being a favorite of Star Wars fans everywhere, Kotobukiya\'s rendering of Han Solo\'s faithful Wookiee co-pilot, Chewbacca, proved to be a popular release. The fantastic craftsmanship and attention to detail that are lavished on this figure made it one of the coolest ones for the line. Standing at a whopping 15\" high, the soft vinyl kit of Chewbacca consisted of 10 easily assembled pieces and was packaged in a huge color window-box by the well-respected Koto figure modelers. Chewie, the reliable ally of the rebel army was posed ready to defend himself, sporting his lethal bowcaster. It\'s easy to imagine Chewbacca\'s distinct roar at an onslaught of Stormtroopers or as leading Princess Leia to safety. The kit offered an interlocking base, perfectly matching the previous Han Solo kit and thus permitting for both figures to be displayed side by side.
