The German/European Noris Force Con Exclusive Revealed?

8/28/2018 The Black Series Hasbro The Empire Strikes Back

Chinese online retailer Robotkingdom is currently taking pre-orders for a brand new Hasbro Black Series 6" multipack. The set includes Princess Leia Organa (Hoth Outfit) and Han Solo (Echo Base Gear). Princess Leia appears to be a re-release of the basic, and still up-coming, single boxed Black Series Princess Leia figure while Han Solo looks to be new.

Even though Hasbro has released a Han Solo (Hoth Outfit) figure before in the Black Series line together with a TaunTaun, this new version has a new head (it may utilizes the new face printing technology), different jacket, different paint application and it has a scarf and fur around the collar.

This set is likely the European/German Noris Force Con exclusive set which was hinted at by the organizers of the convention early in the Summer. Hasbro mentioned that there will be an exclusive European convention set as well, and that it will make it's way to the United States eventually. Unfortunately we don't have any other details to share at this time.
