It Came from the Toy Chest: Now we have Han Acompañado

Joke makes more sense in Spanish... Han Solo, Han Acompañado...
Well, we have Han's Hetero Life Partner in our grasp... CHEWBACCA!!!
and since I've mention Chewie's Heterosexuality, please don't make a reference to THAT...
Who is Chewbacca? I already told you. He's Han's Partner... The Tall Dog Faced dude that does the funny growly noise...

Let's get this show on the road and crack him open!

Chewie here is SLIGHTLY different in Articulation vs his pal Han... Instead of double jointed knees he gets a ball joint knee. Other than that, he has nearly the same range as a Hasbro Marvel Legends or Star Wars black figure... My only gripe is that his head articulation is limited due to his "beard".

Paint and sculpt
It does look like Chewie, though the paint job can be hit or miss with these figures. Some have a nice aging of his fur on the head, but the rest of the body is barely painted. Mine has a decent body, but the head needed a bit more paint to make him look older. The more mellow look this Chewie has makes him look younger than the angrier Chewie figure from the Original Trilogy.
His Bowcaster, maybe we can count the removable bandoleer... 3.0

Too soon?
Chewie gets a 3.83 as his final score. It's a decent score for him and I can't believe the amount of Articulation that we got out of him. To be honest, I was expecting a more restricted figure. I kinda now regret not getting a Slave Leia, but man, all the ones I saw in Person had horrible derp eye... now the New Hope Leia is coming and is ugly AF... Borderline ToyBiz Scarlet Witch or Rogue bad...
