This morning Hasbro through a handful of media partners announced three new sets that will be available for collectors in September. Screenrant announced a 6″ Kenner-inspired addition to The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary Collection line, The Wampa. This set is the first of its kind as it features Black Series action figures on the packaging to truly mimic the vintage Kenner release. Typically Black Series figures either use the black line art of Gregory Titus or the vintage card back images.
The next release came via Cnet.com who debuted the lastest Special Action Figure Set for The Vintage Collection. This Clone Wars based three-pack includes members of the 501st Legion, Echo, Jesse and Fives. Each of these figures was featured extensively throughout The Clone Wars series.
The final set was announced via Yahoo.com and includes no less than four Black Series figures and a vehicle. The Heroes of Endor set includes Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia all in their Endor gear and are joined with Paploo and Imperial Speederbike.
Thanks to our friends at Hasbro and Litzky PR we have received both the official press info and images for each set which is provided for your convenience below!
