Farewell Mr Mayhew MTFBWY

It is with an extremely heavy heart that I discovered Mr Peter Mayhew has passed away. As you may have seen I had been teasing a new design for a “Wookie Warrior”, well as you will have worked out it was a design inspired by Chewbacca who Mr Mayhew portrayed from 1977 all the way to 2015.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the immediate family and close friends of Mr Mayhew and I wish I could have thanked him for all he gave me  as a fan. I will post my full gallery next week, for now I raise Wookie Berserker in his honour.

  1. It seems hard that our childhood hero’s are passing. I guess where all getting older. Did you pull a post yesterday? This would explain why. Nice work FT. Star Wars Day tomorrow. May the force be with you.

    1. Hello Neil, I had a glitch yesterday yes. I drafted tomorrow’s post and as I tried to schedule it to post at 12 midnight tonight, WordPress posted it immediately! But don’t worry you haven’t missed it, my “May the Fourth” offering will appear later. I just had to send my respects and thanks to the Mayhew family. The full Wookie Berserker post will be up next weekend (11th May),
      And May The Force Be With You also. Thanks Neil.

  2. Nice tribute FT. I too was saddened by the news of Peter Mayhew passing. Such a vital contribtion to Star Wars and a good person. I have my tribute post to him coming early tomorrow to conicide with Star Wars Day. May the Force be with us all!

    1. Great sentiments TVTA. For all of the success of Star Wars and Chewbacca, Peter was so quiet and unassuming. I think the biggest news story about him came when he was stopped by airport security because of his lightsaber walking stick! We will miss him greatly. Looking forward to your post, my Darth Vader post will publish 12 midnight GMT) Thank you and MTFBWY also.
