To celebrate Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back 40th anniversary, Hasbro have announced that they’ll be re-releasing the Wampa. Unlike the original figure which came in a two-pack with Luke Skywalker this Wampa comes on his own.
I haven’t got the original release but I have been told that this one has a slightly different cleaner paint deco. I really do love the packaging for this release as it’s a great recreation of what the original figure came in.
Though that’s not all Hasbro also revealed that they’ll be releasing a Vintage Collection 501st Legion Arc Trooper set which looks incredible. In the set you’ll be getting Fives, Echo and Jesse. As you can see they come with plenty of accessories including removeable helmets and weapons. It should be noted that Fives will be released on a single card in the next wave of the Vintage Collection.
I should also note that both of these releases are Hasbro Pulse Exclusives so the status of these figures being released internationally is unknown at the moment. Though I’m sure we’ll know in good time. I should finally note that these figures are expected to be released in September this year.
