So, I was shuffling through some of the many, many extra Cinema Scene filler figures I have stuffed in a shoebox in my closet. I guess there are alternate torso sculpts for Chewbacca with bowcaster? One of them is smiling (sculpted, not just painted), the other is not and has a hole in his back for that bowcaster to plug into. I think the smiling version must actually just be the same torso from that old Chewbacca permantly holding a blaster? This line is surprisingly tough to keep up with.
Just playing here...
Chewbacca with Bowcaster* (not smiling; hole in back)
Chewbacca with Bowcaster (smiling; no hole in back)
Chewbacca with Blaster (smiling; no hole in back)
[as far as I know, there isn't a Chewbacca with Blaster (not smiling; hole in back)]
^^^All of the above sorta being kit-bashed variations on the same figure^^^
Chewbacca on Cloud City (Open palm; has a net for C-3P0)
Prequel Chewbacca with that Energy Orb Sling or Club or whatever
Chewbacca holding Blaster with two hands
*There are gray and black versions of the bowcaster. I think both have come with the hole-in-back Chewacca, and only the black one has comme with the smiling one?
