So far, 2015 hasn’t exactly been a banner year for Hasbro’s product brand, but their new 6″ scale Wampa is one of the greatest items I’ve ever seen them produce.
Obviously they have a huge opportunity with the Fall lineup, but given how awesome this new Wampa is, I’m not expecting to see much product this year that tops it.
Head on over to the forums for a closer look, including a comparison of this mold next to the 3.75″ scale Wampa, which is looking very outdated now.

In the summer of 1980, The Empire Strikes Back introduced us to one of modern cinemas most recognizable characters, Boba Fett. A man of few words, the gritty bounty hunter quickly made his mark despite having roughly 3 minutes of screen time in his debut film. The character had long been teased by Lucasfilm as far back as 1978, appearing in animated form and as a costumed character in parades and special events across the country.
It is available now for preorder for Premier Guild Members and retails for $120.00
