    Awesome work! I really love the face. To me that is very key. Your second pic really shows the likeness.

    Nice job, congrats! Think I even prefer the pics over in the flickr feed.

    Got an estimate on the total construction time? I've built similar projects, but
    building that fursuit intimidates the crap out of me. :)

    Thanks everyone! I stand about 7'4"

    I couldn't have done this without the hard work and research of those who built before me, I'd like to thank them: Trap Joe, DougieFett, Duck, Lumpy, The Wook, and Matt Pfingsten.

    Wow, awesome Chewbacca. You nailed the face and fur.

    Chewie was always one of my favorites. The costumes I see massed produced look more like this:
    Chewbacca Authentic Supreme Edition Mask

    Glad you showed us what it is really supposed to look like.

    Thank you very much.

    Also, I have a silly video on my Flickr page that I made for my niece but it shows the jaw movement pretty well.

    For what I know, he was the first in Germany who had built a decent Chewbacca.I guess around 2000. I had helped him a little with infos about casting and mouth mechanism back then. Here´s picture of him.

    Again, your Chewie is great. I like him a lot!!!

    Whoa! That photo makes our Chewie look like it could have come from the same mold. Nice.

    However I did all my work on my own. It's funny how I hear about many other great Chewie builders after I did all my work. :)

    I found this photo stream on FLickr, is it the same guy? Flickr: Andere Welten's Photostream

    Again, thank you. :) I am going to have professional photos taken this weekend, I hope they will turn out awesome.

    That´s what I thought :)
    Yes, it is the same guy from your link. Funny - in this shop "Andere Welten", I had displayed my ROTJ lifesize Vader for some years...
    You did a great job on your Chewie. And as well of the lip mechanism!

    Very great work!!!!(y)thumbsup:thumbsup
