My son and I were into collecting vintage SW in the late 90s..long time ago, but I'm now kinda back into it. Have a chewy I bought back then at a flea market that I'm wondering about: GMFGI 1977 but no COO and the 1977 looks a bit wobbly. Also, he seems too perfect.

Welcome to TIG!

Not unusual at all. If you're getting back in collecting , you'll hear the term "COO" which is Country of Origin. Many figures can multiple stampings so it's common to see different things like wobbly lettering on Chewy, Hammerhead, and a few others with unconventional limbs.
