As any Star Wars fan knows, the Wampa is a fearsome creature that dwells on Hoth’s ice planet. So it’s only fitting that Funko has released a limited edition SODA Wampa collectible.
This 3 liter sized SODA figure is exclusive to Funko and comes in two versions: the regular Wampa and the chase variant, which features an injured Wampa.
Only 10,000 of these collectibles were made, so it’s a good thing they come with a display stand. But be warned: the Wampa is not for consumption by weak-minded humans.
So if you’re looking for a refreshing treat, you’d be wise to look elsewhere. Unless, of course, you’re brave enough to take on the Wampa. In this case, we salute you.
The Funko.com exclusive, Vinyl SODA 3 Liter Wampa – Star Wars with CHANCE OF CHASE, can be found at the links below as soon as the online sale begins (click to jump!)
In the Star Wars universe, many creatures are both feared and revered. Among these is the Wampa, a hulking beast that dwells on the icy planet of Hoth.
The first time we see a Wampa is in “The Empire Strikes Back,” when it attacks Luke Skywalker and drags him back to its cave.
The Wampa hangs Luke from the ceiling and prepares to feast on his flesh. However, Luke uses the Force to call his lightsaber to his hand and cuts off the Wampa’s arm.
Enraged, the creature attempts to attack Luke again, but he manages to escape and later kills the beast with a thermal detonator.
While they may not be the most pleasant creatures to encounter, there’s no denying that Wampas are some of the most iconic creatures in the Star Wars universe.
But what many fans don’t know is that Wampa is also the nickname of one of the film’s animators, Phil Tippett.
His colleagues named Tippett because of his bulky build and hairy chest. And like the character, he helped bring to life,
Tippett is known for his formidable strength; he once lifted a motorcycle over his head with one hand.
So next time you watch “The Empire Strikes Back,” keep an eye out for Easter eggs relating to Wampa—you might spot one of Tippett’s fellow animators making a cameo appearance.
