Series: Star Wars Pop! Vinyl
Released: July 2011
Funko’s Pop! vinyl line was one of my surprise favorite items from this year’s toy fair. I love the simple, yet still detailed approach these figures take. I also love at the breadth of the line with licenses from movies, comics all the way to cereal boxes. It’s just a fun line at a great price point (just under $10 from most stores). For this year’s SDCC, Funko offered a wide variety of exclusive Pop! vinyl figures, including this Chewbacca.
As part of the Star Wars Pop! vinyl line, Chewbacca here is a bobble head. He shares the same general proportions as all Pop! vinyl figures with a “deformed” aesthetic but features sculpted detailing. The mold and general coloring as the mass market release of Chewbacca, however the convention exclusive is flocked. I have to admit, I’m a sucker for flocked toys – and as a result this Chewie is just about perfect. The mass market Chewbacca (available now online and in Target stores) is great – you should buy one if you like Star Wars; but the flocked version is awesome.
