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: ).

I feel ashamed I haven't contributed to your threads, Lars, but I've been in a huge collecting dip. I'm back in the game however.

Here are my Wampa's:

Still missing the Hoth playpack and the Toltoys version. There's also the first issue Kenner version with the flap folded around the box, but not sure that's a true variant.

No problem Emiel about that you have not contributed to the threads. I have been a little busy for some time so I have not had time to share my own collection for some time in the threads :oops: But I am glad to see you here and thanks for sharing some parts of your fantastic collection in the thread. If you can find time for it then you are welcome to share your items in the old threads, here is a link to the threads we have done so far viewtopic.php?f=1&t=35554

The last box in the post is that a canadian box ? it looks awesome :D
