Role in Lego® Star Wars


Two versions of the Chewbacca minifigure have been made, the current reddish-brown version, and the original brown version. The minifigures were always made with the same design though. Chewbacca had a special headpiece, that also covered his torso, and back. A similar design was used with the Ewok minifigures. A chain of ammunition also ran down from the top right of his body to bottom left. The Chewbacca minifigure almost always comes with his special crossbow. which is meant to be his Wookie Bowcaster. Originally, the crossbow was either black or brown but was changed later to silver.

Game Character

Chewbacca also appears in all the Lego Star Wars video games, except for The Clone Wars. In the games, Chewbacca can jump normally, and carries his Wookie bowcaster, which shoots like a normal gun. During gameplay, the player can press the attack button in front of a Stormtrooper, which will cause Chewbacca to jump on the front of them and pull off both their arms. The stormtrooper will die once its arms are off.
