Hasbro Announces Star Wars Loopin' Chewie Game

StarWars Loopin Chewie
There Will Be Games

The 2-3 player game is the first item from the Hasbro Star Wars line to be released this year. It gives the popular Loopin’ Louie concept a makeover from the galaxy far, far away. Chewbacca fits into a mini Millennium Falcon that swings around the playing area to take out stormtroopers. Players can help Chewie navigate by using controls to swing him into or away from the racks with stormtroopers. With all the spinning and smooth moves, the Millennium Falcon is the perfect choice of ships for the game. Just remember: Let the Wookiee win! It’s for the best.

Loopin’ Chewie will be available in September at most major retailers and in the Hasbro Toy Shop for $24.99.

At this point, I expect Hasbro to do a new edition of Los Mampfos with a Star Wars theme.

This is one of the most amazing re-applications of setting ever done. The Loupin Louie world is PERFECT for Star Wars in every way shape and form (those things always happen in threes ya know, nothing is the same in every way and shape... but not in form) .

I mean, you guys did notice that Louie and Chewie rhyme right?.. I realize it's subtle but good lord man. I cannot wait for this to come out.

The other version of this game is four player. Why did they make this new Star Wars version three player?

Just in case you only have 3 players and you MUST play this game. Now there's room for both versions in your collection!

Keep this going:
  • MON CALAMARI REEF ENCOUNTER
  • ADMIRAL VERPLICHET
  • ROGUE SQUADRON LEADER*
  • SURVIVE: ESCAPE FROM ALDERAAN
  • TITLE CRAWL FOR THE GALAXY
  • TWI'LEK STRUGGLE
  • AUNT BERU THE AGES: A STORY OF CIVILIZATION
*note: this would probably be awesome.

That'd probably work out about as well as taking Doom and slapping D&D pictures on it.

StarNexus WarsOp. I'd buy that. I can see the factions now; Republic Army, Droid Army, Imperial Empire, Rebel Alliance. With unique sculpts for each faction? Hell yeah, someone copy-and-paste that up!

I'd totally buy a Star-Wars-slapped-on Nexus Ops. FFG doesn't even need to explain why the AT-AT can fly from the middle of the board. But it's only because the current version is too psychedelic, not its license. Couldn't be worse.

My only question is this:

Will it be made in the same quality as the original, or the quality of the shitty reprints?

I'll hold out for an original on the secondary market before I bother with a toy that breaks after 10 minutes.
