After the "Robot Puppy Incident of Thanksgiving 2012" it had me thinking of ways that I used to play with my Star Wars toys in ways that the movies didn't really suggest.

I had a '77  Chewbacca, but I really wanted the '80 one because it came with the plastic net that could hold busted up C-3PO.  So I had two of that one (and several others) and for some reason, my childish imagination couldn't let that just stand, so I made up that it was Chewie's twin brother.  They were the frontmen (?) in a band called "The Chewie Brothers" where they sang harmony... one was a little bit country, and the other one was a little bit furgan d'an.  Of course, their signature sound was them singing "Chewie!" together.  Because they could actually sing English,

I realize now it makes no sense.  What would make sense, and would actually solve a problem for me, is if Chewie actually was twins/clones, and one was always home with his family and the other one was off galavanting with Solo.  That way I don't have to feel bad for Lumpy.

IT'S MY TRILOGY, AND I WANT IT NOW!
