  • Chewbacca (Death Star Trash Compactor) was released in December 2002/January 2003's Star Wars SAGA series as a Walmart exclusive
  • The figure was part of the Death Star Trash Compactor set #2 of 2 - which also included a figure of Princess Leia Organa and the head with body of the Dianoga trash monster
  • Just like all the other figures in these 2-packs - Chewbacca was sculpted very scene specific
  • The figure captures the moment when Chewie tried to open the Trash Compactor doors and banged against it
  • Chewbacca's satchel is permanently attached to the body
  • The figure is not able to hold anything
  • The legs are one piece of plastic and can't be moved
  • Even though the neck is swivel jointed the head can only be moved a little bit
  • Chewbacca is about 1 1/2 heads taller than a basic Star Wars action figure
  • The figure is sculpted beautifully and it captures the moment when Chewbacca tried to open the Trash Compactor doors very well


Luke, Han, and Chewie infiltrate the Death Star to free Princess Leia. While making their escape, they dive down a garbage chute and become trapped in a trash compactor with a hungry dianoga. Then the walls begin to close in on them, and our heroes are caught in a tight squeeze!
