Wonder Festival '09 Summer Carded Chewbacca
« on: June 23, 2009, 12:35 PM »
Medicom update today, this was the only SW Kuby to come up.



[wandahuesuteibaru] 2009 (summer) the opening commemoration limited commodity 2009 July 26th sale schedule queue/cue brick Special No.322 KUBRICK CHEWBACCA (TM) Distribution price ¥1,575 (including tax) - Total height approximately 60mm.

1,575 yen is approx $16.55 US. 60mm = 2.36".

The Early Bird set Chewy:



I had to do some checking on this, it looks like Chewy is carded!

Posted over at the Toyworld forum

Translation ala Bablefish: Medicom 2009/07 KUBRICK CHEWBACCA blister card specification.







So a carded Chewy limited to 1000 pieces, looks like 500 at the show & 500 online I think.

Jeff, can you do some checking around & hopefully shed more light on this?

I think Jayson said it... the Wookies are getting a lot of love recently. 

Not sure how I feel about a repaint of Chewbacca.  I'll probably see if my "local" Japan contact can get one but I don't expect to lose sleep hunting for it.

Yeah, you've got it right - he'll be carded like the other WonderFest figures (500 at the show, 500 on-line via the Medicom site). 

Man, it's been a while since they did a carded figure at WonderFest/WCC shows.  I think the Shadow Stormie was the last one.... the last few shows have been 400% ewoks I think. 

And, with an editon size of 1000, he should settle down below $100 range, if history holds.  I'll definitely be buying one for my carded set.  :)

Damn I just updated my sig with all the carded figs I still don't have!  ::)

This is a must have though, you can't have enough of Mr Chewlious P. Bacca  :P

That makes Vader, Luke, Han, Obi, and Chewie on cards. Of the core characters left, they have the droids and Leia, and I suppose you could argue Lando and the Emperor. I wonder if it will continue? Medicom is about as predictable as a spider monkey on crack, so who knows.

Super-size look at Chewie, but still no carded pics...   we probably won't see those until the show if history is any indication.

I just put out my email request to my local Japan contact.  We'll see if they can come through or not.

Cute little devil. Too bad they didn't re-work the crossbow though to look more prop accurate or to mimic the vintage weapon to help further differentiate it from the EB version.
