Adam Savage Incognito as Chewbacca with C-3PO!

  • Published on Apr 25, 2017
  • For this year's Silicon Valley Comic Con, Adam goes incognito in one of his favorite cosplays--Chewbacca! This upgraded Chewie is a bit different than the Wookiee costume he wore a few years back, with a new bandolier, bowcaster, and mask. Plus, Adam rigs up an animitronic C-3PO to wear on his back, complete with custom dialogue!

    Very talented man. I love fabricating and making things out of nothing. I do it all the time on my harley's because can never afford buying something and its its cooler to make it myself anyway. Its the best feeling in the world when somebody looks at something ive made and asks me where i bought it. Keep doing what you do man ive enjoyed watching you work ever since i first saw you on tv. There aren't many people nowadays that have enough pride in what they do to go above and beyond.

    You missed the netting that should have gone around Chewie too, because the backpack was concealed so it looked like C3PO was magically stuck to your back and not actually secured with the net. That said, AWESOME JOB I LOVE IT!!
