A Walking Carpet?

Friday, June 15, 2012

Not to be confused with bronzed celebrities from the Jersey Shore, Wookiees are a highly intelligent species hailing from the planet Kashyyyk. Long-time Sideshow fans have been eagerly awaiting the announcement of a Chewbacca collectible, and we’re happy to announce that our artists have nearly completed the  recreation of this iconic behemoth. Stay tuned for updates in the coming weeks!

  • Sithlord151

    Please let him be a sixth scale figure. Not that it would matter if it was premium format cause I’ll buy him anyway.

  • Darth Impulsive

    OH PLEASE BE A 1/6 SCALE FIGURE!!! FRACKING AWESOME!!!

  • http://yahoo Johnny boy

    O M G !

  • Robb B.

    “Bronzed”? I assume that’s a clue. So it’s a Chewie bronze? Or faux bronze?

  • Rick Greene

    Please, oh please…oh pretty please with a cherry on top, tell me this is a Sideshow sixth-scale figure….

  • http://www.mycsculptures.com Michael

    can you reveal the scale please?

  • Scott Bux

    Holy Frijoles. You mean… it’s coming? Is this real life?

  • gary

    Wookies rejoice. Please let it be a 1:6 scale figure, please oh please. With real furr? It’s not wise to upset Wookie fans!!!!!!

  • John Takacs

    “Bronzed”? Hmmmm. I wonder if this is a bronze statue? If so, gonna be priced out of a lot of people’s range. Still hoping for 1:6 scale!

  • Torgon

    I’m guessing this is a Premium Format (though I hope he’s from the 12 inch line). He looks scupted and not ‘furry’, but it’s hard to tell. Can’t wait to see him.

  • Glenn

    Great to hear that Chewbacca will finally be coming out, even if you misspelled Wookiee.

  • Blasty

    Psst- Wookiee has two ‘e’s in it.

  • MB

    WookiEE. Geez, you guys need some help over there? Anyway- hope this is 1/6th with real fur. “Bronzed”? Huge pass if it’s a statue.

  • Noah

    I’m excited if it’s the 1/6 figure, otherwise I’ll pass.

  • Darth Snoopy

    I don’t care if it’s a 1/6th figure or a Premium Format figure…Chewie WILL be mine!

  • Ralphie

    1/4 PF Chewy would be cool.But I’M still waiting on DC Batman,Wonder Woman,Superman JLA news.Come on SS.

  • Vincent

    It’s a PF, and i’m loving it already, Mine

  • Bruno

    I really hope it’s a premium format figure and not a bronze statue or a 1/6 scale figure. I would really want him in my collection. Keep my fingers crossed

  • http://a99kitten.com Celeste

    Squeeeeeee!!! I have been hoping for a Premium Format Chewie for a long time!! Hopefully it’s that?!?! But I’ll pretty much take any Chewie collectible (but not 12inch) And when can we pre-order for SDCC pick up?!?!

  • Jedi Jim

    If bronze and not 1/6, pass I will.

  • Daniel

    With cross-bow?

  • Hunter

    I am guessing Chewie is the 4th PF mentioned in the recent Q&A along with R2, 3P0 and The Snowtropper.

    It’ll be interesting to see if he has fur.

  • I am Sancho

    Sancho has the sexy chest, full of hair, much like the Chewbacca. But you see there are many Chewie in the world, but Chewbacca is not Sancho, I am Sancho.

  • Paco

    Finally there iz a figure with sexy back hair like me

  • John White

    PLEASE make us a 1:8 scale figure with actual fur PLEASE!!!!!! Looking forward to seeing more but all I’d want is a 12″ scale figure PLEASE!!!!

  • clinton linsley

    im hoping for 1/6 if not :(

  • http://pinoystatueforum caezar

    i hope its a pf :)

  • Moe

    Such high hopes for this one.. Please get it right.
    Original Trilogy Chewie is the ultimate grail piece.
    Bronzed would be disappointing…

  • Derek Osburn

    I need the 1/6th version, and C3P0 & R2D2, to go with my collection.

  • generalgrevious

    im hopeing for sixth scale as we all need him to complete the line and fill in the huge gap in the collection

  • http://sideshowcollectibles rubixballjoint

    I think that the majority of fans want the 1/6 scale of Chewie.I have been waiting since Sideshow first got the Star Wars licence.Hopefully all of our wishes will be granted.

  • generalgrevious

    i think the 1/6 collectors should get chewey first since the pf fans got the droids first i think we should get the chewey first to make it even

  • Darth Impulsive

    YES!! YES!! YES!! PLEASE BE A 1/6 SCALE AND NOT COST TOO MUCH…

  • Tom P.

    To me, this looks like a sculpt – maybe a bust or PFF. If this IS a 1/6 scale figure, I sure hope the folks at Sideshow discovered a way to create Chewie with a faux fur material and not just a soft pvc sculpted fur.

  • Benjamin

    june the 15th was the first teaser of chewbacca its now 11 of september can we get an update please

  • yardman

    premium format with fur all the way..
    1/6th scale i dont think so..

  • James Sanderson

    I have a bad feeling about this, SO PLEASE MAKE CHEWIE SIXTH SCALE !!!

  • yardman

    FOR ALL THOSE PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT SHORE WEATHER IT WILL BE A 1/6 SCALE
    BEFORE YOU CLICK ON THIS PAGE IT SAYS IN BLACK AND WHITE IT WILL BE A PREMIUM FORMAT..FAN DABBY DOZZIE..

  • Tabitha Morado

    I went to the San Diego comic-con and went to the sideshow collectables place and was talking to one of the guys that worked there. He said it will be sixth scale and premium format and that they want to have the right fur on it.

  • Benjamin

    did he give any indication on when it will be available for pre order?

  • Tabitha Morado

    No. He said that they delayed it because they don’t want to put a chewbacca that looks like the chewbacca action figures in the stores and that they need to find the right type of fur that you can brush.

  • Benjamin

    thanks tabitha for responding to my message

  • Tabitha Morado

    Yep! I’m pretty sure other people wanted to know more information on it so I was happy to reply!!!

  • Dan J

    I am so excited to see this finally coming, I do have one thing to ask is when do we get another update, it has been close to 6 months now. please any update thanks.

  • Manuel

    Yes we need an update on this please. Please make the base with enough space for an autograph as I’m planning on getting it sign by Peter Mayhew just like I have done in the past with all my premium format figures, Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, etc. thanks

  • Elliot

    Any updates on this? Looking forward to it!!
