I met Peter Mayhew back in 2000 at Disney World, he truly is a gentle giant, so friendly and a great smile. He signed a picture of Chewbacca for me and unfortunately, over the years it's found a hiding spot and I just can't find it. So I decided to reach out to Peter and see if I would have any luck asking for him to autograph some of my Star Wars Chewbacca carded figures. Well, I was pleased to get a response and the result is this awesome Vintage Chewbacca figure on my own custom high-quality reproduction card back and blister complete with Peters autograph.
Please take note that, as Peter even said himself, his autograph isn't what it used to be. His big Chewie hands have a hard time these days but his big Chewie heart gives it his all. I met Peter again at Star Wars Celebration 2019 to get a photo with him to complete my collection. I also met Joonas Suotamo at Star Wars Celebration 2019 and had him autograph 2 of these and one of a custom Chewy card I did for TLJ which you see him holding in the listed picture. You will notice that Joonas autograph has a little drawing of Chewie's face at the end of it, pretty cool.I was so looking forward to having Peter and Joonas autos on my carded figures, but now it seems bittersweet. This is not an original card or blister (bubble), it has been handcrafted using stock photos of the original card to look and feel as real as the original. The hole punch is real and the punched cardboard has been reinserted to give the "unpunched" appearance. You can take that hole punch piece out if you prefer.
COMPARE THIS CARD BACK TO PICTURES OF THE ORIGINALS (you can find on the internet), you will see they are identical, and my image quality is actually better in most cases. PERFECT FOR DISPLAYING THESE VINTAGE FIGURES FOR A FRACTION OF THE PRICE!
CHEWBACCA figure is an original, vintage 1977 figure Made In Hong Kong. He has been carefully restored to near mint condition, including a reproduction Bowcaster weapon. The Display Cases I use are.
The VERY BEST Display Cases available. For these vintage carded figures.
I've always wanted to re-claim my favorite childhood toys; these original Star Wars figures. Seeing the original figures in their original packaging is Nirvana! Then I saw what a few people are doing out there and I thought, I could restore these figures, recreate the packaging and the artist in me saw how I could do it really well. The result is these beautiful cardbacks that present these original figures the way they were meant to be. I can live with a reproduction lightsaber, cape or weapon, as long as the figure looks great and new like it was when it was first put in a blister.
I just do Star Wars so I've tuned my skills on these figures to get them as best as they can be. Again, please ask me any questions you have and.
