Hasbro confirms first Star Wars Black Series European Convention Exclusive, Han and Leia Hoth

Hasbro have announced, via Yahoo Movies, the full details of the Star wars Black Series Hoth pack leaked recently by Robotkingom.

The set is the first European Convention Exclusive and includes Princess Leia and Han solo from the Hoth scenes of The Empire Strikes Back. The figures are presented in a display box designed to look like the ice corridors of Echo Base.

Leia appears to be pretty much identical to her single release. Han is a new figure as such with a new sculpted brown Hoth coat with soft goods fur and scarf.

The set will sell at £49.99 and will be on sale at MCM London Comic Con, Paris Comic Con, Lucca comic Con in Italy and Noris Force Com in Germany.

Robotkingdom first broke the new of this set a couple of weeks ago and took pre-orders for the set. They have now been forced to write out to customers to cancel these orders and refund the monies as Hasbro will not be supplying them with the set. Apparently the set was initially offered worldwide via all the various Hasbro distributors. As confirmed by Robotkingdom and In Demand Toys, this has since changed so that only the UK/European distributor will get these and not the US or Far East. Ironically this will make the set harder to get in the UK as most independents source stock via the Far East Distribution channel.

"Fans will be able to get their hands on the collectibles, while stocks last, when they go on sale at MCM Comic Con London (26-28 October, 2018), Comic Con Paris (26-28 October), Lucca Comics & Games in Italy (31 October-4 November), and Noris Force Con in Germany (21-23 September)."
