The figure is a ¼ scale representation of the Wookie co-pilot of the Millennium Falcon and partner to Han Solo, who appeared in all three of the original Star Wars Trilogy movies, as well as Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. He's also expected to appear in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and the untitled Han Solo standalone Star Wars story movie.

Sideshow is honored to introduce an all new Premium Format Figure of everyone's favorite Wookiee – the mighty Chewbacca!
"Chewbacca here is first mate on a ship that might suit us." ―Obi-Wan Kenobi
Smuggler, Warrior, Resistance Fighter, Chewbacca's name has become synonymous with bravery, loyalty and strength in opposition of the Empire. A veteran of the Clone Wars, the Galactic Civil War and the further ensuing conflicts with the First Order, he is a skilled fighter, expert pilot and much-cherished member of the Resistance.
Towering over both friend and foe alike, Chewbacca is a stalwart companion and trusted friend, or…if you are a member of the Empire…your worst nightmare!
As the co-pilot of the Millenium Falcon, and loyal sidekick to Han Solo, this heroic Wookiee is a much-loved character in the Star Wars universe, and when we stepped up to create our own collectible statue of Chewbacca it wasn't a task we took lightly!
Every inch of this limited edition museum-quality collectible, from his intricately sculpted fur to his painstakingly reproduced miniature leather-effect satchel, is so detailed that it simply has to be seen "in the flesh" to be truly appreciated.
Standing over 23" tall, Chewie is displayed on a highly detailed and movie accurate Falcon-themed character base, clutching his trusty Bowcaster, and ready to spring into action!
Whether displayed alongside other characters from our ever-expanding range of Star Wars Premium Format™ Figures, or on his own as a stand-alone piece of movie memorabilia, Chewbacca is a must-have for any collector!
The Chewbacca figure will be available to pre-order on April 6, 2017, and is priced at $499.99. Check out the preview photos in the gallery below.
