Black Series Wampa likes it Hoth



This week geeks from around the world would have descended on San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC). However, due to the coronavirus pandemic and need for social distancing, the physical event was cancelled. Therefore, panels will be livestreamed free as part of Comic-Con@Home from 22nd-26th July.

So, exhibitors are making their own announcements online. The Hoth Wampa joins The Empire Strikes Back Black Series collection later this year from Hasbro. The icy brute comes in vintage Kenner packaging, which suggests there'll be a Luke Skywalker and Tauntaun too.



Hasbro has also announced 501st Legion Arc Troopers and a Heroes of Endor set that includes Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Paploo and a Speeder Bike. Given Andrew Lewin's 'enthusiasm' for all things Ewok, I know what he wants for Christmas. Hopefully, Nick Smith will be checking out these new Kenner-branded vintage collection sets in September.
