Now that I have him,  I need to add Tarfful into this shot.

I figured I'd bump this up to discuss the new Wookie Warrior, and the Chewbaca figure with WOOKIE RAGE coming out tonight. I'm pumped. Forgot about Tarrful. Thanks Valin.

I've bought 3 Tarrfuls.  I have to customize one into a SA version using the Preview Wookie...

I totally agree.  It adds a lot of variety, which is totally needed.

Yeah, I'm really looking forward to that next Wookiee Warrior as well, and I'm glad it is considerably different than the preview version.  The more wookiees, the better :).  I don't have room for a real large army, but I sure do like how they look displayed together.  Right now I have 4 Preview Wookiees, Tarfful and Chewie...waiting to increase their ranks with more of that 2nd Warrior, once it is released.

I picked up loose POTF2 Chewie and SOTE Snoova (sans accessories) at CIII.

Man they are puny next to my other Wookiees. And they're absolute dwarves compared to the Sneak Preview -- a head shorter and 50% of the mass.

Granted the POTF2 and SOTE ones are way small compared to the human figures of their day.

I opened my #43 Wookiee Warrior last night.

He is a little hard to stand because of the action feature, but a stand fixed that problem.  I've got him posed with his wookiee blaster and shield, and he looks great standing next to Tarfful, chewie and the Preview Wook.

I kinda wish now that I had grabbed an extra Preview Wookiee so that I could mix and match the accessories between the Preview Wook and the #43 Wookie.

Also, the #43 Wookiee is much less yellow in person.  I was able to grab one that was more of a "tan/brown" paint job, but be fore-warned that there are some crappy paint jopbs out there on this #43 Wookiee!

Crappy paint jobs?  No problem, a little repainting can fix that.  Check out the customizing section, Darth Delicious and myself have gone Wookiee crazy.  Here's an example -





Do you need some random Wookiee accessories Jeff?  Send me a PM if you like, I might be able to help you out.

Picked up the darker "chocolate" wookiee today, thought I'd post a nice comparison shot...



I like both, the color change is a nice touch to making the Wook army just a tad bigger!   :)

Thanks for that pic Jeff.  Scott mentioned he'd found me both, but I had no idea what he was talking about :P

Thanks for that pic Jeff, I'm glad to see this variation actually.  It makes these wookiees look fairly different, and varies the "army" up a little bit.  The more wookiees the better, hopefully everyone can find both versions if they want them.
