12" Chewbacca (Kay-Bee Exclusive)
« on: July 16, 2004, 04:40 PM »
I'm not usually a 12" collector, but thought I would post this for anyone interested.  I just received the latest issue of Star Wars Insider in the mail today (#77, the new "look" one), and they have confirmation (and a pic) in there of a KBToys exclusive 12" Chewbacca.  It doesn't look too bad from the pic they show, I think I might actually have to pick it up if I can find it too.  If you have the insider, check the Hasbro toys section.

"Real" fur or plastic fur?

Its plastic fur, and to me, at least from the pic they show, it doesn't look too bad at all....much better than past versions.  I was really surprised to have it show up in the mailbox today, since it wasn't supposed to "ship" until the 22nd (and usually it is a couple weeks late getting to me, but we've since moved).  Maybe it was because I recently renewed my membership, there are some nice Episode III pics in there too.

The hasbro guys I talked to last week left me with the impression that there would be all VOTC until episode III hit.  (and only a few at that...)

I read on Rebelscum's list of 12" guys the three VOTC guys we know of but they also listed a Chewbacca. This must be what they were referring to. I really wanna see a picture of it because frankly I think all the past Chewies have not been that good looking.

That's interesting news about them all being VOTC.

Looks like the POTF2 12" plastic Chewie with a new head.

Not exactly what I wa hoping for. :-[

Looks great to me. The head was the only thing that I wasn't thrilled about on the last one.

I'm leaving him in the box since he's VOTC though.
