Once a rare example of a Wookiee in the Jedi Order, Gungi is also among the few to survive Order 66. As a youngling, Gungi was temperamental and expressive. During the time of the Clone Wars, he needed to learn to slow down his impulsive ways to complete the ancient rite of passage known as The Gathering. Once the Empire took hold, Gungi survived in hiding until he was captured by members of the Axis Vanguard. Luckily, Omega and the rest of Clone Force 99 found him and returned Gungi to his homeworld of Kashyyyk. source
Required Details: Additional Images:
- The mask must completely cover the head and neck, without completely obscuring the shape of the shoulders.
- The eyes, a smooth black nose, and a pronounced muzzle must all be clearly visible. No flat faces.
- A slight moustache like feature must be present as well.
- The overall shape must be rounded and more youthful than an adult Wookiee.
- The mask hair should be smooth and well groomed, not bushy, so that the mask’s shape and structure are clear. There must be lighter blonde markings on the chin and around the eyes.

- Although a functioning jaw and/or lip snarl is not required, the skin and lips of any mechanical masks must appear as one piece, rather than a separated jaw and face. This refers only to the mask’s outward appearance, not the underskull. Costumers should be aware that mechanical jaws and lips are complex projects requiring purpose-built components using special materials. They cannot simply be added to an existing latex rubber mask. Consult the costuming resources and fellow Wookiee costumers for advice on this project.
