Build a Wookiee with This 18-Inch Chewbacca Statue LEGO Set

 |  |  |

Proving there isn’t anything you can’t build with LEGO (including furry humanoids), LEGO has just announced an 18″ Chewbacca build set ($200) scheduled for release this September. The set includes 2,319 pieces, a lot of which appear to be his flowing coat of fur. You ever wonder what a Wookiee’s coat smells like? I always imagined a wet dog. Obviously, this Wookiee will smell like plastic.

Created to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi and make some money in the process, the set also comes with a Chewie minifig, a display stand and information plaque, and a brick-built bowcaster for blasting stormtroopers from the backs of their speeder bikes.

This looks like a pretty fun build, and I’m tempted to get it. If I do, though, I am going to mod the design a bit so Chewie is holding the torn-off arm of an enemy in each hand. You know, for extra realism.
