The only thing cooler than having a full-size Tauntaun at the Washington State Summer Conwould be having Major Bren Derlin (John Ratzenberger) sitting on a full-size Tauntaun at Summer Con. We can promise that at least one of the two will happen.

Please welcome Wanda the Tauntaun to the Washington State Summer Con this year. The Tauntauns were the creatures found roaming the wintry snow plains of Hoth in the Empire Strikes Back. She is the newest creation of Star Wars prop builders Melissa Thomas and Chris Thompson. Wanda will be a big part of a 10,000 sq ft Star Wars display area.

You won’t be able to sit on Wanda, but come see her and get your pictures taken from a snowy area in our remote “Hoth” location at the show.
