For my son. Thanks!
To go with 41608 Han Solo is his loyal co-pilot Chewbacca. However this is a younger version of the wookiee based on Solo: A Star Wars Story. Unfortunately Chewie doesn't make for a particularly successful BrickHeadz. The model is only slightly taller than an average BrickHeadz, even though Chewbacca towers over other Star Wars characters. This is really obvious when it's displayed next to Han (or any other Star Wars BrickHeadz). The build is quick and enjoyable with some interesting techniques used to replicate the texture and layers of Chewie's fur. As seen in the Solo trailer Chewbacca has a new bandolier which is recreated through printed pieces. Also new is his weapon which is a blaster rifle rather then Chewie's iconic bowcaster. This is probably the least successful of all Star Wars BrickHeadz so far and one to buy only if you're also going to buy Han Solo. It would be nice in future to see an Original Trilogy or Sequel Trilogy Chewbacca BrickHeadz that could remedy the height issue.
This is a strange Brickheadz set, one minute I like it but then I look at again and I don't, I think it needed a little more work to make it look like Chewbacca, especially on the big head. It's probably one of the weaker Star Wars Brickheadz and shows the problem with this format with certain characters.
Fans of the mighty wookiee may not appreciate this slightly odd looking version of Han Solo's favourite fuzzball, suggesting that BrickHeadz 41609 Chewbacca will divide opinion. It could be worse, as at least this LEGO Chewbacca is not sporting a super creepy smile…
Certain characters seem ill-suited to the style of the BrickHeadz range and I think Chewbacca falls into that category, unfortunately. The colour scheme is excellent and I like the texturing that covers most of the model but the abrupt transitions between rough and smooth surfaces, as well as those between different colours, are disappointing.
While Chewie isn't as furry or tall as he could be, he's darn cute and there's no mistaking who this hairy sidekick is supposed to be.
I must admit, I really like Chewbacca. The color combination of Reddish Brown, Dark Brown and Medium Dark Flesh works perfectly, and the face is different enough to be instantly recognizable. Considering a Part-Out Value of twice the retail price (and four times the discount price) this is a really good buy. Provided, of course, you don't hate Brickheadz, or Star Wars, for that matter...
