UPDATE: We reached out to Hasbro to see if this set would be made available to those in the United States. While they wouldn't give us a firm commitment at this time they would, they did indicate it was definitely possible: "The exclusive may be available at select online retailers later in the year after the conventions in certain markets, and may be available at HasbroToyShop.com in the US." Which honestly we take to mean they will be made available to folks here in the US in some capacity. We saw this leak out last week but now we have official images and detail to share with you for Hasbro's upcoming 6" Black Series Empire Strikes Back Hoth 2-Pack featuring Hoth Han Solo in brown coat and Hoth Princess Leia. This set will be released in the UK at various conventions taking place this year which include MCM Comic Con London (26-28 October, 2018), Comic Con Paris (26-28 October), Lucca Comics & Games in Italy (31 October-4 November), and Noris Force Con in Germany (21-23 September). While Hasbro has had a presence at some of these conventions before, well at least the MCM one, this marks the first time they have done an exclusive just for these overseas cons. The Han Solo pays tribute to the age old argument of whether Han's coat in the movie was blue or brown. Hasbro already did this figure with the blue coat when they released it with the Taun Taun. I believe this figure may also have an updated headsculpt using Hasbro's new photo-real technology though I have not done a side-by-side comparison to confirm that. This figure also incorporates a soft-good fur collar which was not present with the previous version. Missing however it would see is Han's hood. The Leia figure is the same as the one coming in the single pack later this year but at least for those going to the earlier conventions, this will likely be your first chance at the figure. The packaging for this set is what makes it the most unique depicting the hallway of the Hoth Rebel base where Han and Leia have one of their many squabbles during the movie. The set will cost £49.99. It is unknown at this time if Hasbro will make the set available at all to folks here in the United States. Check out the images below.
