    Comments: As Han Solo's partner, Chewbacca the Wookiee (or Chewie, as Solo calls him) distinguished himself as a talented pilot, starship mechanic and smuggler. After being rescued from Imperial slavers by Solo, Chewbacca pledged a life debt to the rogue pilot and followed him to several different planets as their relationship grew and the two became close friends and partners. When Solo acquired the light freighter Millennium Falcon, he and Chewbacca began their career as intergalactic smugglers. Chewbacca's reputation as a brawler gave him a distinct advantage in shady business negotiations, and it was he who initiated the deal to transport Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker from Tatooine to Alderaan.

    Chewbacca aided in the rescue of Princess Leia, posing as a prisoner to allow Solo and Skywalker (disguised as stormtroopers) entrance to the Death Star's detention area. After their daring escape, Chewie convinced his friend Han Solo to assist the Rebel assault on the space station, which gave Luke Skywalker the chance he needed to destroy the Empire's dreaded Battle Station.

    Point of Interest: This same figure was released with a slightly different paint job in the Millennium Minted Coins line. A slightly different-posed version of this figure can also be found in the Death Star Escape cinema scene.

    Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
    Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
    I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
