Star Wars: Classic Rebel Heroes Part 4: Chewbacca and his Wookie Scouts
It's not a bad pose, and I dig that the figure is armed to the teeth with rifle, pistol and close combat weapon.
Would have been really nice to have even one or two more, though, with bowcasters and muskets, maybe, to represent wookies at home on Kashyyyk. There was one more wookie mini made for the line, but it came along later, was not a Julie Guthrie figure, and doesn't look particularly great. I'm trying to figure out something I can do with it. It wouldn't have fit in well with Chewie's Commandos. I may try painting up a few more of these guys someday, maybe with a conversion or two, but the pose is pretty solid, with no obvious points of separation to play with, so this may be it for wookies.
One more thing. For a while, the closing themed pin-up pic was becoming a tradition of sorts within my Star Wars mini posts, but through the last couple of posts, I've been slacking. Traditions are good things. Once we've started them, we shouldn't abandon them. So here's a little Wookie-themed something to help you think warm thoughts as the season changes.
