The Star Wars Forces of Destiny set is packaged in a cover that slides up or down, and reveals the Millennium Falcon cockpit diorama with the figures in front of it. The packaging opens at the bottom, and the Millennium Falcon diorama slides out with the figures. There is no need to damage the packaging to get the figures out, as this is easy to remove despite its appearance.
Chewbacca stands at 11 1/2″ tall and is loaded with rooted hair covering most of his body, with the exception of his face, hands and feet. The hair has multiple shades of brown, including dark and light. Most of the hair is loose and fluffy to the touch, with the exception of the top of the head that is glued downed rough feeling. The battery compartment is hidden on the top part of his back, and is easy accessed by lifting the fur and velcro. The figure features sound effects that sounds like Chewbacca, including roars and Wookie language.
His head sculpt is nice detailed and the face is made of plastic, with a very detailed mouth with sharp teeth, eyes and a nose. The skin has a rough feeling to it with detailed lines to look like a rough skin pattern. His hands and feet are made of plastic, and there is fur sculpted on the top parts, with the rest of the sculpt being smooth. Chewbacca includes his bandolier that is painted in brown and silver, as well as his crossbow. The bandolier tends to fall off easily, but does look good when its on him.
The set also includes two Porgs, a Porglet nest with two baby Porg figures. The Porgs has a smooth and fluffy sculpt and stands at 2″ tall. Each Porg is sculpted and painted slightly differently, with the wings sculpted down on one, and up on the other. The deco on the Porg with the wings that are down has brown deco on his head, while the other one does not have this, and both have grey and white deco, with orange feet and black nails. The Orgs plastic eyes that are black, with a white toy on top of them, and brown lines around them. The only articulation on these is that their feet can swivel.
The two baby Porgs come in a next made of plastic, that includes sculpted detail. The Porgs include rooted hair, and the faces are made of plastic, with one eyes open, and the other one has closed eyes and an orange mouth. The baby Porgs are sculpted to the nest and cannot be removed.
Overall, the San Diego Comic-Con 2018 Exclusive Star Wars Forces Of Destiny Chewbacca And Porgs Figures look great, and fit in nicely with the rest of the line. The sounds effects on Chewbacca are a personal favorite touch of ours.
