So far, 2015 hasn’t exactly been a banner year for Hasbro’s product brand, but their new 6″ scale Wampa is one of the greatest items I’ve ever seen them produce.
Obviously they have a huge opportunity with the Fall lineup, but given how awesome this new Wampa is, I’m not expecting to see much product this year that tops it.
Head on over to the forums for a closer look, including a comparison of this mold next to the 3.75″ scale Wampa, which is looking very outdated now.
