    Ah man - such sad news to read this morning. Such a nice guy - no one ever had a bad word to say about him.

    RIP Peter Mayhew :'(

    (ps. Love the Lightsaber walking stick in the photo above! :smile: )

    He was Chewbacca from all accounts. Wasn't just a role for him. Chewie meant the world to him and portraying him to the best of his abilities knowing how much the fans loved him was his everything.

    Chewie...and therefore the man underneath...was my idol as a kid.


    Still is I guess.

    I posted this on a separate discussion but here are my thoughts on an in-game memorial for Peter.
    “To all players of Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes. In preparation of Star Wars day and in light of the sad news today, I have changed my in-game profile picture to Chewbacca in memory of Peter Mayhew. Those who have unlocked Chewie at 7*, it would be great to see more furry faces across the game... Let your guilds know - May the Fourth 2019 is the day of the Wookie!”

    Very sad day. He actually passed on April 30, but the news waited until today to announce. A few coworkers just saw him at Celebration, too. He WAS Chewbacca.

    @JasFonz that’s great to see. We will get as many people as we can to switch to Chewbacca.

    Done here too, and raised it as a voluntary gesture with my guild!

    If we let our guilds know it’d great to see lots of Wookies across the game.
