Not to be confused with the 2015 blaster of the same name.
It comes packaged with four Micro Darts and detachable bow arms.
It resembles the Bowcaster used by the Wookie warrior, Chewbacca in The Clone Wars TV series and Star Wars Episodes III, IV, V and VI. It features an integrated scope on top of the blaster and has four dart holders on one side.
Despite the included ammunition's similarities to Micro Darts, they are in fact different, as they are longer and have a different tip. They are also said to have a wider internal diameter. A slight variation occurred on the Disney theme park variation; the darts are all reddish-orange instead of having a black tip.
The blaster was re-released in 2002 as a part of the Star Tours toy line. This update had the blaster sold in two different color schemes; an updated version of the original, and a rarer blue variation. The name on both versions was changed to Rebel Alliance Bowcaster.
Chewbacca's Bowcaster has been released with the following color schemes:
- Original (silver)
- Star Tours (silver)
- Star Wars: Episode III (brown)
- Star Tours (Disneyland/Disney's Hollywood Studios exclusive) (blue and gray)
Reloading and firing
To reload Chewbacca's Bowcaster, place a dart into the blaster's muzzle and prime by pulling back the plunger rod located at the back of the blaster.
To fire a dart, pull down the firing trigger.
