Sideshow’s Chewbacca Premium Format Figure: The Wookiee Isn’t the Only WinnerJanuary 20, 2014
Limited edition Star Wars statues have an inherent appeal. When you combine characters from the original trilogy with the craftsmanship of a manufacturer like Sideshow Collectibles the end result tends to be especially alluring. Not surprisingly, the companys recently released Chewbacca Premium Format Figure has become one of our favorites.
At nearly two feet tall, Sideshows monolithic Chewbacca statue is impressive out of the box. What it lacks in articulation it more than makes up for with an array of details that Star Wars aficionados are bound to appreciate. The Wookiees sculpted portrait, fur, and signature bandolier exhibit an extraordinary level of depth, texture, and lifelike color.
As with other Premium Format figures from Sideshow Collectibles, great care has been taken to faithfully recreate all of the familiar accoutrements. Chewbacca’s satchel is crafted of faux leather with realistic weathering, and the bowcaster and (the Sideshow exclusive editions) Blastech DLT-19 Stormtrooper rifle that are included are particularly well done. The Chewbacca statue also comes with a battery-powered, light-up base that makes displaying this stunning collectible even more captivating.
Sideshows Chewbacca Premium Format Figure is one of the companys most impressive Star Wars collectibles yet. Its another beautifully conceived and painstakingly authentic statue that fans shouldnt miss out on.
