    A question for Chewbacca experts:

    Chewy's eyes are blue, aren't they? Pale blue?

    Are they the same color as Peter Mayhew's eyes? Did Mayhew use any kind of colored contact lenses for filming?

    I'm hoping that somone will be able to assist me with a nice color closeup of Chewbacca's face, showing the correct color of his eyes. If he did not change the color of his own peepers to play Chewy, then a nice color closeup of Peter Mayhew's face would do, too.

    Thank you very much in advance.

    In the pics I have seen, Chewies eyes are brown....

    PM's eyes are blue, so he must have worn contacts...

    I also have a signed pic of him, wearing a chewie T-shirt...

    Eyes are the same on that too...
