An original production-used bowcaster prop as seen used by Peter Mayhew and Joonas Suotamo as "Chewbacca" in Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens ( Lucasfilm Ltd., 2015 ).

This prop is composed of a dense rubber that has been hand-painted to appear metallic. The green canvas shoulder strap is secured by two brass-tone metal clips that are mounted in the base. The two orbs at the end of the bow are also composed of a cast rubber material. The front portion of the bow is composed of metal for structural support.

This style bowcaster is the pinnacle weapon of the character Chewbacca, used in all notable battle scenes throughout the original trilogy, in his appearances in the prequel films, and in the recent sequels. The bowcaster resembles a crossbow that has an energy source similar to that of a blaster.

This type of bowcaster is seen in the film when both his character and Han Solo ( Harrison Ford ) are introduced on the Millennium Falcon, when Han and Chewy battle at Maz's castle on the planet Takodana, and on Starkiller Base against Kylo Ren ( Adam Driver ) and the First Order. Han Solo borrows this type of bowcaster from Chewbacca during a battle in the film and easily takes out two Stormtroopers, to which he immediately replies, "I like this thing." Prop measures 31.5 x 32.5 x 10 inches.

Value: $40,000.
