The bandolier is removable, but Chewbacca's upper body has grooves sculpted into it where the bandolier needs to go, so removing it doesn't make much sense
Hasbro painted the figure very nicely, the brownish colors are lighter than on previous versions
The blaster rifle in particular was done very well, the paint application goes from a dark grey to a light grey in the front, the grips were painted brown to give it a wooden appearance and the weapon's forestock is movable back and forth so that Chewbacca can "load" the weapon
Even the muzzle on the blaster rifle was nicely detailed
All in all this Chewbacca Black Series figure turned out nicely and makes a great addition to any collection
A mighty Wookiee nearly two centuries old, Chewbacca has fallen upon hard times during this age of the expanding Empire.
