    That's awesome!

    That video reminds me of Bigfoot footage. Especially without sound.

    Oh well I guess 'Bigfoot' is as close to a Wookiee as you're ever going to get, when dealing with a Rubies Chewie [face_laugh]

    But it's so awesome being tall for once! ;)

    Thanks MS - yeah they take a bit of getting used to, but actually quite comfortable :)

    That's fantastic =D=.

    You definitely don't want to go out without a wrangler in that one.

    that is awesome!!!!!!!

    how tall are you with that on??
    and when will it make its first appearance??


    =D= very nice!!!!!



















    plus, i have received word that my parts that i ordered back in Nov are on their way......;)



    (the reason it has taken so long is the guy making them badly sprained his wrist in the process and thus delayed the production )

    Thanks for the kind words Jabba.

    I'm about 6Ft8" when I wear the suit. Not quite the 8Ft like the 'real' Chewie, but that would just be ridculous! And I'm hoping to bring it for the RFL, as long as I get lots of practice in before then! ;)

    And Meanders, good point mate. A wrangler would be a good idea :)

    And as rude as DM is, he's right, you will look so much taller against me.

    So he gets a [face_frustrated] for that comment, and when I make a helpful suggestion I get death threats?

    Double standards! :p

    Hi all,

    Does anyone know the best place to buy leather from? I am after some strips to complete my Chewie Bandolier like the pic below -

    [image=http://news.thomasnet.com/IMT/archives/chewie%20bandolier.jpg]

    Any help would be appreciated :)

    Phoon.

    P.S. - for the uninitiated, a bandolier is the ammo strap and pouch that Chewie wears from his left shoulder to right hip ;)
