Final Thoughts: Oh my god, where should I start...How about...SAVE YOUR MONEY !!!! - LOL. When I saw they were making ANOTHER Chewbacca Mynock, I thought why? The Cinema Scene version is Awesome. After opening this new Chewbacca my initial thoughts were confirmed...Hasbro decided to go backwards in quality and give us this Fiasco. OK, so we get more articulation in the arms, a good thing but SO MANY downsides...His Head is too small PLUS you cannot turn it but 1mm on each side.

Even more scandalous is the fact that the Oxygen Mask is sculpted ON the Face...you CANNOT remove it. BIG BIG mistake. Considering how cool the Cinema Mask was, the same technique should have been used here as well. Also, No waist articulation, so his pose is very limited and to top it off, his knees!!!. What in the world was Hasbro thinking when they designed him? You look at the picture and think..."Hey cool, Chewie can bend his knees" WRONG!!!! For some ingenious reason, Hasbro decided to have the Knees ROTATE instead of BEND. So if you want, you can put his Knees together to make him look like he has to PEE Really Really Bad - LOL. I don't think I even want to talk about his ACTION Bowcaster. Just trash the Red Blast and it sortof looks ok if not oversized. Thank God Action Features are going the way of the DoDos.

This figure is a total disaster. Click on the Legends Logo and order a Chewbacca Mynock Cinema Scene instead. You will get a Fantastic Chewbacca and 2 extra cool figures as well. Yukky Poo.
