  • This Chewbacca action figure was released in a 5-pack titled "Hoth Recon Patrol" in July 2008
  • The other figures in this set were K-3PO, R5-M2, Han Solo and a Probe Droid
  • This figure is a repaint of the Early Bird Kit Chewbacca figure from 2005
  • This time Chewie's fur was given a subtle snow paint application, that's most noticeable on his left arm, the back of the head and the satchel
  • Chewbacca's bandolier is glued onto the figure and can't be taken off
  • The 2-piece bowcaster fits well into Chewie's right hand
  • The figure stands about a head taller than the included Han Solo figure
  • Chewbacca stands well on display without falling over


While on a routine patrol, Han and Chewie investigate the source of a strange signal, and discover an Imperial probe droid, which immediately fires upon the pair. When Han returns fire, the droid self-destructs – but not before it tells the Empire where the Rebel's base is located. As the Alliance begins an immediate evacuation of Echo Base, R2-M5 helps coordinate plans and K-3PO provides tactical support to hold back the Imperial forces.
