How many Wookiee Warriors is everyone planning on getting now?  The new pics have made me definitely want to get at least 12 of them...

I'm wanting quite a few...  I'm just curious if this is "wookie average" and Chewbacca's really just a small guy for his race, or a younger Wookie perhaps?

If this is average, I'm jonesin' for quite a few of these...  If Chewie's average than I'm disappointed somewhat to get "the fat guy", ya know?  But I dunno...  He's cool, either way, just maybe not to the point I want tons...  5 though, I'd say, at least.

Based on the Insider pics, I think our friend Chewbacca is a little small for a Wookiee.  Still a bad mother f-er though.   :D

Check out the Making of Episode III Web Documentary, The Wookiees Are Back.  In it, animation director Rob Coleman tells some of the Wookiee actors that they are the senior warriors of the pack, while Chewbacca is one of the youngsters.  This might explain why many of the Wookiees are considerably larger than Chewbacca.

I can buy that...  Especially if Wookie Age, which Lucas was pretty in on himself, is quite a long time, though Chewie's sporting a lotta grey come ROTJ, and even in ANH. 

Either way, this guy's huge.  I just got the set this evening and he's easily the best figure so far.

Damn, I can't wait to get these Preview Figures... seems like a lot of people are finding them.

The Wookiee Warrior just looks freaking amazing... easily one of the coolest army-builders around. 

BTW, are his shin guards removable or sculpted on?

And thanks for posting that pic!!

Shinguards pop right off Chewie.  I'd even say they're loose on him and can easily fall off actually, but that's ok.  they're tight enough on mine that they don't fall off when I pose the Wookie.

Snoova may be one of the worst figures ever made in my opinion... but I have one too.   ;)

To my understanding, Snoova was a bouny hunter Wookiee that Chewbacca impersonated in SOTE while Leia donned the Bousch disguise, in an attempt to infiltrate the Black Sun organization as they tried to rescue Han before he was delivered by Boba Fett to Jabba's Palace.

All I can say about the new Wookie Warrior is WOW!  My pegs were clogged this afternoon with nothng but these.  I picked up a couple and upon opening one in the car I had to go back and buy five more.  Great posing possibilities and the accessories are all removable.  Best new fig since the VOTC Stormtrooper.
