    How to make a chewbacca figure using a Big foot!

    Hey guys, After buying Megospidey's Han Solo, I decided he should not be alone, started to blast my brain as how to make a Chewbacca figure, i didn't want to sew a furry suit so I decided to venture in making it using a big foot figure, I've never seen one in person, but it seemed that it would work....

    So I purchased one from the mego store (Thanks Scott!) Once I got it , I took out the suit, and took a look at the body... mine was a bit loose on the legs, Maybe its because of its hight, but it's kind of hart to make him stand on his own....

    I already had one of these Chewy Pez dispensers, all i needed was to take out the head (carefully) because the scale is right compared to Big foot's own head....

    Now, the suit, it has a velcro in the back, and it also has a small pillow shaped thing that makes him look fat, I took that out using some very sharp scissors

    By removing this, the suit did not look fat, but ended up looking a bit baggy....

    THanks Brown Bear!

    To control the looseness, I used some small rubber bands i found , they are really small and are colored brown or black, I put then on the chest, legs, arms waist, that way the suit looked less baggy...

    To attach the head i Used one small Lion ROck head I had lying around, i painted it brown....

    For the bag I used one 1/6 millitary bag I had, it was green so i painted it brown, the strap is one hair bow i found brown color, and the ammo cartridges are made with thick foam sheet from the hobby store!

    And my understanding is that both of the Bigfoots made my Kenner were used to make Chewbacca Prototypes as well. So...historically accurate.
