"Heavy Metal Wookie is a one off custom of an original vintage Kenner Chewbacca figure. He stands 4.5 inches tall, stands on a base and has a removeable guitar which attaches to his back with magnets. Also He was inspired by the eye sculpts I did on MegaSeth, which I thought would look really cool detailed into Chewbacca's hair.
If people like him I might sculpt this again and make a resin run." -mentioned Lisa Rae, and I would heartily say "GO AHEAD WITH THE RESIN RUN!" muahahahahaaaaa

Trailer for JUPITER ASCENDING = an upcoming film directed by Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski, starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis, in what looks to be an exceptional sci-fi opera action piece in the vein of "Star Wars", pumped-up to the max with gorgeous visuals, that perhaps might facilitate an action figure line somewhen … which to me is a "sign" of a property, if it necessitates a toy-line, IMHO.
But then again, "Riddick" popped into mind, and instantaneously "Speed Racer", as well, so that's my theory shot down lol … or perhaps I should say, that if there is a toy-line launched for this, then perhaps they are gearing for it beyond the cinemas and into the pop culture subconsciousness, like even "The Matrix" was, don't you think? Regardless, looks an exciting time to be had (and I break for Mila Kunis anyday *man-blush*) ... and check out Channing's "Vulcan-ears", man lol
