Can you re-enforce the neck so it doesn't stretch?

Something else that may prove helpful to other Wookiee’ But not strictly part of the wip is how to transport your Wookiee. Again after two years experience with OC I intend to use the following equipment. The case will carry the top/bottoms/mask/bandolier/grooming kit etc. With the bag to carry the feet. I'm happy that I’ve been able to streamline it down to this size.

I’ll see how it goes and see what I can do.

It’s been a frustrating time not been able to progress the build but after a lot of delivery hassle including being told that it would be delivered between 1 & 2 and getting Larphitup Snr to go and house sit at 12.30 to find out they had already attempted delivery 😡😡😡 I finally have bandolier bits and couldn’t be happier. The end is now in sight

So just had confirmation that Chewie has been cleared. Just wanted to give a big thanks to Jamie, Phil, Brian, Lynn, Alex, Gillian, Mel and my dad (larphitup Snr) for all their help with this and to everyone else for your support and encouragement 😊
