    Somehow this feels like the sequel to Batman lightsabering a shark. Not that that’s a bad thing.

    I love it! The bowcaster stands out like a bad CGI prop, but the overall concept and execution more than make up for it… the cowering Nazis look especially realistic.

    The squirrel needs to be involved; war horses are trained to fight, the squirrel should be frothing at the mouth, madness in its eyes, nazis spinning away from it’s leathal strikes.

    The Pale Scot

    This was an abandoned sequel from Pandemic for their popular SW:Battlefront game. Star Wars Battlefront 1942: Wookie Fury had all kinds of licensing issues and George Lucas wanted to leave Nazi killing to his pal Spielberg.

    There’s a playable demo locked in Lucas’ vault. Who wants to help me break in?

    I never wanted the Nazis to kill something so strongly.

    “giant cute squirrel ”

    Three words that really don’t go together.

    Must post this at the telescope!

    (back story: Mt. Graham Red Squirrel caused a ruckus; lots of squirrel pictures on bulletin board in control room.)

    Mein Furher, the wookie…the wookie..

    Mein Furher, the wookie has an attack squirrel.

    The roar doesn’t look giant enough.

    Unfortunately for the Nazis, those helmets do look a bit like acorns.

    The fact that a talent like this does requests like this makes me a lifelong art lover all over again.

    Needs more dead Nazis.

    This could replace the wolves howling at moon t-shirt meme.

    this is overwhelmingly incredible.

    This isn’t real! There was no Chewie and no giant squirrel! It simply did not happen. This was, in fact, a Nazi propaganda poster circulated around Stalingrad at the height of the siege. The text (obviously omitted) explained that, “even when the ground is frozen to 18 inches, and food convoys have stopped, the good Nazi soldier will, with teamwork, faith in the superiority of his race, and determination, find ample food in the wild wastes”. The giant squirrel with a wookie on its back was merely a little bit of the famous German humour Ja-ja!

    We liked this print so much, we asked the artist to feature it in our online gallery. This print is going in my living room! It’s for sale here: http://www.wallsushi.com/products/fur-on-fur

    Chewie would ride a giant red squirrel. Red squirrels are more badass.

    This -must- become a videogame.

    Wow, so cool to see this here! Thanks, Xeni. I’m really, really loving the Submitterator: a terrific idea, a great addition to the site, etc. etc. :D

    Or is this Chewie’s heaven?
