Seems like the essential accessory now.

There is the life-size plushie. It's the right size and looks very nice for a toy, but it doesn't move and only makes noise when squeezed.

The animatronic one flaps it's wings and drives around on wheels and makes nose, but doesn't look as good.

I was using the rolling/flapping wing version at Dragon Con since it was only one I could get day they were released. Was fun having it move during photos and people freak out because they had no idea it moved.

Now I just use the life side plush with sound button in stomach. Button is way to hard to hit when holding one handed so I ignore it. Decided 2 weekends ago during a charity event I hated having to take it around. Since I use a staff to help walk as well as overall look being an old wookiee and all, I am going to add magnets to top and put the porg on top.
