Here's mine.

It's a yellow Wampa, but the box is fairly mint and I still have the cardboard insert.
COO (c) Lucasfilm 1981 Made in Hong Kong
It still has a good arm 'action'. The legs seem to be a different grade of plastic and haven't yellowed as much (not really visible in the photo).

Not sure where I purchased it (I might have sent away for it to a catalogue store based on the sticker).

Not sure if they constantly improved or updated the Wampa - are there mould or figure variants (apart from the Black one :wink: ).
