Review: Amazon Exclusive Chewbacca and C-3PO (w/ removable limbs)

I was really skeptical about this figure to start with, because I remember Kenner’s original figure back in the day didn’t work. If I remember correctly the modern 3 3/4″ version didn’t work either, so I was skeptical about this one. Well this one actually works!! The net is not very big but stretches easily and holds the torso, arms and legs just fine.

As you can see in the pics that Chewbacca holds him in the net just fine and stands perfectly. Now for the details: Chewbacca is great like the others released with plenty of articulation, so Chewbacca is not really new but is a great figure. This version of C-3PO is good. It looks a little weird with the arms and legs off with wiring showing, but once you put him in the net it looks great. Hasbro did good by giving instructions with this figure. Good idea.

The arms pop in pretty easy, the legs are a little harder to get in but once put together it’s good. He has lots of articulation. The arms are really good and the legs are good but could be better. I really like the paint job on C-3PO, not too much but enough. It’s pretty simple to handle and change around. Overall I love this set, and at $49.99 to me it is worth it.

The black figure stand DOES NOT come with this set. They can be purchased at this link and you can still get Chewbacca and C-3PO (w/ removable limbs) for $49.99 and free shipping at this link

Rest In Peace Peter Mayhew – 1944-2019

Via Peter’s Page:

The family of Peter Mayhew, with deep love and sadness, regrets to share the news that Peter has passed away. He left us the evening of April 30, 2019 with his family by his side in his North Texas home.

Peter was the man behind the mask of Chewbacca in the original Star Wars trilogy, episode 3 of the prequels, and the New Trilogy. He fought his way back from being wheelchair-bound to stand tall and portray Chewbacca once more in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. He also consulted on The Last Jedi in an attempt to teach his successor. He put his heart and soul into the role of Chewbacca and it showed in every frame of the films from his knock kneed running, firing his bowcaster from the hip, his bright blue eyes, down to each subtle movement of his head and mouth. But, to him, the Star Wars family meant so much more to him than a role in a film.

The relationships that began then grew into the friends and family that he would love for decades to come. As the films released and became more well-known he had his eyes opened to the possibilities of what he could achieve with his role in the Star Wars universe. For more than 30 years Peter traveled all over the world spending time with his fans and friends. Peter developed lifelong friendships with the other cast members and his fans while on the convention circuit touching the lives of millions. As he realized over the years the impact he could have, he became heavily involved with the 501st legion, Wounded Warriors, Make-a-Wish, and other non-profit organizations.

To this end, he established the Peter Mayhew Foundation, supporting everything from individuals and families in crisis situations to food and supplies for children of Venezuela during their recent road to freedom. He not only provided funds but became personally involved with each individual, family and cause he supported.

As he grew older he continued to “soldier on” as he put it and was completely in his element around his fans and supporters. He grew great strength from the energy of his family, friends and the fans he knew and loved.

He is survived by his wife Angie and three children. His kindness, generosity and care will live on in the Peter Mayhew Foundation with Angie taking the helm as his voice.

There will be a memorial service for friends and family held on June 29th and in early December in Los Angeles there will be a memorial for fans set up with his family in attendance, personal effects, and collection at EmpireConLA. 

For additional information, information on the memorials or to offer condolences email ryan@ReelAppearances.com

Rather than gifts and flowers the family asks that you consider donating to the foundation so that they can continue his efforts to help the community. You can donate at http://petermayhewfoundation.org/make-a-donation.php
