Welcome back Rebel Scum! Regal Robot has just announced the WAMPA™ as the newest creation in their Star Wars™ Archive Collection of authentic replicas with impeccable lineage.

During the making of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back™ some shots of the Wampa were made with a costumed actor, however, the dramatic first close-ups of the creature when it attacks Luke on his Tauntaun were actually achieved with a puppet crafted by legendary creature maker, Phil Tippett!

This new resin and mixed media bust is a faithful recreation of that that puppet. Layered in incredible detail, the Regal Robot’s amazing artists brought this to life using a highly detailed laser scan and extensive, hands-on research of the original prop artifact used in the film.

Along with a Signature Edition of just 125 pieces, each of which comes with a plaque hand-signed by Tippett…the company is also offering a very special Legacy Edition which goes beyond a signature edition to provide each owner with a truly unique work-of-art.

Limited to just 100 pieces, each replica in the Legacy Edition will include a premium expanded plaque including a one-of-a-kind Wampa scene sketch hand-drawn by Tippett!

At approximately 13” tall x 19.25” wide (including the oak wood display base), each Wampa replica is 100% made in the U.S.A. Each resin replica in this edition is meticulously hand assembled and hand painted by the artists in Regal’s New York studio, making each a unique tribute to the artistry involved behind the scenes of our favorite films! They’re further enhanced with hand-applied fur, hand-laid hair, custom glass eyes, and the same fur treatment used in the film’s production to simulate ice.

The Signature Edition will be priced at $2499 and the Legacy Edition $2999. Both editions will be available to order at on 2/20/24 at Noon EST.
