Wampa - Star Wars Mighty Muggs Wave 8
The Wampa are carnivorous ice creatures that live on the planet Hoth. They stand over 2 meters tall and weigh up to 200 kilograms. Their razor sharp claws and teeth make them vicious creatures, as they often wander around with blood stained fur from prior meals. While out surveying, Luke Skywalker was captured by a Wampa in Episode V. He awoke dangling from a caves ceiling and used the force to summon his lightsaber in time to chop off the Wampa's arm and escape. They first appeared in Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back in 1980. Harold "Howie" Weed was the chief creature maker for the film and responsible for the menacing beasts. The Mighty Mugg above portrays the savage creature in all it's menacing glory holding a bone.
