To all JDer's:

Feel free to share the following:

1) Pictures of the FOTW that you own.
2) How you obtained the FOTW or share a fond memory about the FOTW with us.
3) Provide information on the FOTW's known variations.

There are  a few versions.  lip color, bag color and so on.
 As for the green limbs, that seems to still be up for discussion depending on who you ask. I count it as I feel it did not happen at all the plants cranking out the chewie. I may be wrong on that.   Thomas has a few oddities, 1 was discussed previously here as I was the former owner. I will try to dig up that thread.

There are only two known and documented versions of the chewie guns one is a Blue one which is found in Boxed Popy and most bagged versions the other being the black. The green one is more of discoloration. I will try and post some nice pics once I figure how to do this, anyone?

Todd,

I would like to see pics, I notice the Earth has a green gun listed for like $35.00.

The green gun was released early on in the early bird sets. I wouldn't say that it is a discoloration its a dark green plastic.  It is documented in the collectors archives and I can say with 100% certainty that they are out there.  They are uncommon but not all that difficult to find. I am unsure if any made it to carded figs I don't beleive any did.

I am going to cry.

Seeing Chewie like that is hard to swallow, but it is very cool!

I did post my Chewies a long while back:
CHEWIES

Scroll down and there are some of the best scans I've ever done wierdly enough.

The blue bowcaster is actually a deep greenish-blue and the 'black' and regular bowcaster is a deep and dark blue when seen is good light. It came with the Early Bird Chewies for the most part and is quite rare, but it has also been reported and verified as packaged with some early 12 backs (like double telescoping sabers).

Green arms Chewie is discussed in depth in that link, so I'll save myself the trouble.

I also have eye variations (more white or more blue) and other paint variations. I'll look more and post all I have soon (think I have 3 complete and 3 or 4 without bowcaster...).

Sorry to be absent for so long. Glad to come back to this though!
