Star Wars Black Series Exclusive Wampa for SDCC 2020

One of Hasbro's planned Star Wars Black Series SDCC 2020 exclusives has been unveiled as a re-pack of the 2015 Hoth Wampa figure in a Vintage inspired box to sit alongside, and celebrate the 40th Anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back. The set was revealed on Screenrant.


With SDCC 2020 cancelled, the set will now be sold on Hasbro Pulse for US collectors. We await details of availability elsewhere around the globe. It will retail at $29.99 in the US.



The paint job of the Wampa looks improved on the original version, particularly around the eyes and mouth and with the removal of the blood splatter. The box is designed to mimic the original Kenner version with the large cardback and boxed container for the Wampa. The images on the box have been updated using Black Series figures.


The Wampa will go on sale in September 2020 on Hasbro Pulse.




Celebrate 40 years of STAR WARS: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK with STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 6-INCH SCALE HOTH WAMPA Figure, featuring 1980s Kenner-inspired package design. Fans and collectors can imagine scenes from the STAR WARS Galaxy with this premium figure, featuring quality detail and deco and multiple points of articulation (4 fully articulated limbs). The STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 6-INCH-SCALE HOTH WAMPA Figure offers fans and collectors a “clean” WAMPA design by removing the “bloody mouth” deco featured on the previous version released in 2014. Available exclusively on Hasbro Pulse in the US & Canada in September 2020.

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force) and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
