This Chewbacca (Life Day) toy was added on November 2023 and will be released in 2024 with a retail price of $16.99. It may be harder to find this action figure as it's an exclusive to Pulse. This action figure is part of the Star Wars genre within the The Vintage Collection series. With an average selling price of $32.03, this toy is not very valuable as it's selling for about its original retail price and is trending down. Quite a few (33) of these toys are in user collections so it does seem to be somewhat popular.
Life Day, originating from the Star Wars universe, was unveiled in the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special, a piece often viewed with infamy and seldom acknowledged within the franchise. This holiday is chiefly linked to the Wookiee species, notably Chewbacca and his family. The special portrays Life Day as a convivial occasion where Wookiees and their comrades unite to honor familial bonds and togetherness. During this jubilant holiday, Wookiees reminisce about their history, revel in the present, and aspire for a brighter future, amidst activities like singing, feasting, and the illumination of a distinctive Life Day orb (Crystal ball as included with this action figure).
Although the Star Wars Holiday Special doesn't fall within the official Star Wars canon, Life Day has transcended this initial portrayal, finding mentions in various Star Wars mediums over time, including novels, comics, and the animated series "Star Wars: The Clone Wars." The narrative of the Holiday Special revolves around Han Solo and Chewbacca's endeavor to reach Kashyyyk in time for Life Day festivities with Chewbacca's family. This special is a medley of musical renditions, comedic skits, and animated segments, graced by the original Star Wars ensemble including Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher.
Life Day transcended its original portrayal in the Holiday Special, being celebrated on November 17 on the Wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk and across the galaxy, emphasizing family, joy, and harmony. It has now become an integral part of Star Wars cultural lore, symbolizing hope, unity, and the enduring spirit of community amid adversities, resonating not just with the Wookiees but with beings across the Star Wars galaxy. The holiday, initially a Wookiee tradition, burgeoned across the cosmos, especially post the Galactic Empire's dark reign, with beings marking the day adorned with festive decor and lights, embodying a broader celebration of life and continuity.
