    Count me in- I grew up with a brother whose favorite SW character was Han, so I've had a long time to learn to appreciate the guy.

    Also, I'm rereading Vector Prime, and Chewie's death scene is easily the best in all of Star Wars. He goes out finally fulfilling his life debt to Han by saving Anakin, then turns and shakes his fists at Dobido as it basically lands right on top of him, roaring defiantly...

    Few, if any, deaths in literature are so true to the character as this- and it helps lessen the sting of losing the walking carpet a bit.

    Welcome to the club. Glad to have you here!

    Ludo, please update the roster when you get the chance.

    This is an interesting topic. Good question.

    Even if you hated to read about Chewie's death in the book "Vector Prime", do you think that the way Chewie died in the story was fitting for him?

    :)

    I didn't read Vector Prime, but I read about how he died in that and it was very heroic...the way I would expect Chewie to go out; protecting those he cared about most.:)

    Hello, fellow Chewie and Han fans. I know this is probably redundant, but in honor of Star Wars Day, let's just post our favorite moments in the films with Chewie and/or Han.

    May the Forth be with you!

    I love seeing Han and Chewie for the first time in the Mos Eisley Cantina. The atmosphere itself just showed us what kind of characters they were. May the Fourth be with you!!

    I just love Chewie's laugh. It's so cute.

    We can just keep this going if everyone wishes. After all, every day is Star Wars day to a true fan of Star Wars.
    I will think of a new topic and post it soon. Let's keep this thread/club active.

    Mine would be either that, the "old fossil" comment, or the bear hug of DOOM! that Chewie nails Luke with in Echo base.

    I particularly like that last one because I'm a bit of an overzealous bearhugger myself. :p

    Or the version he gave to Lando on Bespin.:p But I also like his arguments with C-3PO in pieces.[face_laugh]

    It is sad that more people do not post to this fan club. Where does everyone talk around here?

    WC1138, hello, and welcome to this club. I love your username.
    I don't know where all of the Chewie fans went.

    I like the scene in ESB when C3PO realizes that Chewie has put him together backwards, and Chewie laughs.
    That was so funny.

    :)

    HRROOOOAOAURURUGUHGUUGHGUUAURUWUUAUURUR!!!!

    ....anyone have a lozenge? That language is NOT easy on the throat! *koff* [face_blush]

    Hi, DBR. Glad to see you.

    I watched some videos on You-Tube of Peter Mayhew, and he seems like a very nice person, and a humorous person too.

    Helly, fellow Han and Chewie fans. Guess whate?

    On June 11, 2005, the Chewbacca fanclub came into existance.
    Then, the club expanded.
    On May 27, 2008, it became "The Chewbacca and Han Solo Fanclub".
    We missed our club's birthday in may.

    :(

    Sorry about that.

    So, let's get this club active again!

    Any questions, ideas, comments? All are welcomed to participate. New members are always welcomed.

    I received a book from the State Library, and it's called "Star Wars: Millennium Falcon."
    It sounds interesting from the title of it.

    :)

    Quit unintentionally rubbing it my face that I need to finish the LOTF series... :_|

    Anyways, hello everyone! A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away I was a member of this club, may I rejoin please?

    I actually need to START LotF. But that won't happen for a while, since I'm reading my SW books in chronological order, and right now I'm on Cloak Of Deception, then going back to read Old Republic: Fatal Alliance, and then I have about 10 others SW novels to read before I can get to LotF, and then start Fate Of The Jedi.

    You know I had told myself that as well this summer. I'd start reading everything after ANH in chronological order, but I still haven't started. I should kick myself into doing so...

    Han Solo has always been my favorite Character in the Saga. And who doesn't love Chewbacca. Always loved how they interacted in the films.

    Welcome back, F/H!

    Sorry for my absence. I will see what I can do about getting a topic started in here. In the meantime, just keep the Favorite Chewie moments from the books and films.

    Is Chewie and Han in any SW video games?

    I think I have asked this question before, but since we have some new members in the club I thought I would ask again.

    If Chewie and Han were Jedi, what do you think they would be like? There's no right or wrong answer. Use your imagination.

    :)
