Not to be confused with the 1996 blaster of a similar name or the 2016 Super Soaker of the same name.

The Chewbacca Bowcaster is a Nerf blaster that was released in 2015 to promote the Star Wars: The Force Awakens film.

It comes packaged with a scope, five Star Wars Darts, and instructions.

The releases for the orange variant are discontinued. The green variant for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which comes with its accessories and an additional ten darts, is a Kohl's exclusive.[1]


The Chewbacca Bowcaster is a crossbow-like blaster. It has a tactical rail and two strap points: one under the muzzle and one built into the shoulder stock. It also has a dart holder accessory that holds up to four extra darts at a single time; it can be detached from the blaster. Its bow arms and shoulder stock come packaged detached from the blaster for packaging reasons.

It advertises a firing range of up to sixty-five feet (twenty meters).

As its name suggests, it resembles the bowcaster used by Chewbacca in the movie.
