The only beast I had when I was a kid in the good old 80s :lol: I bought it from my neighbor, he was a few years older than me and was to old to play with him :lol: unfortunately I fucked up in the early 00 and put most of my star wars toy together with all my other star wars items that I had bought from collectors or ebay so I am not sure about if my childhood wampa is between the ones I have or I have sold it :roll:

ok here is my little wampa collection.

2 boxes and 3 wampa, 1 wampa still need a box :D

Great Wampas, Lars! :-)

I always thought Kenner dropped the ball with the Wampa. It doesn't look anywhere near scary enough! I know it's a kids toy, but the face sculpt they gave the Wampa simply makes him look confused and bewildered, not frightening and dangerous!

Anyway, here's mine:

Thanks. Yes it is a clean one. I'm not sure how much it's been played with by its previous owners, but it was obviously well looked after :-)

And here’s a regular Kenner to make the set? Are there any more, Ledy perhaps?

Nice Kenner Wampa :-)

I wonder if any Forum members will post a picture of the 1st issue Kenner box with the Rebel Commander standing in for Luke?

I don't think I have seen that one, but it sounds like a cool variant, thanks for sharing the info about such a box :D I hope some on the forum have one in their collection that they will share in the thread :D
