The Wookiee most definitely wins this round.

Actor Peter Mayhew, 69, who portrayed the large, hairy Wookiee Chewbacca in the "Star Wars" franchise, took to his Twitter account Thursday night -- appropriately called @TheWookieeRoars -- to release dozens of vintage photos taken on the "Star Wars" set.

While some of the photos depict him, a large number focus on his co-stars Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill and director George Lucas.

Perhaps the most surprising gems feature the elephants that were transformed into the large, domesticated banthas and a singular photo of American actress Koo Stark "who played Camie in "Episode VI"," Mayhew explained in a tweet. "Her scenes didn't make it to the final film.",
