DVD[edit]

I own the widescreen LD sooo Im going to change the dvd part

Link to youtube song[edit]

Is this really noteworthy enough to add to this page? It is not even entirely about wampas, and it is not really famous in any way? I think it should be removed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by TheTrueMikeBrown (talkcontribs) 17:19, 12 November 2009 (UTC)

references in other media?[edit]

Can we edit the content of this article to 'references in other media' similar to other pages? Parodies of and references to the Wampa are found in other things besides other star wars works and nintendo 64 games. The drawn together episode 'lost in parking space part 2' for example.

first sentence[edit]

Could someone rewrite the first sentence, please? It seems gramatically broken to me. If not, I'd appreciate some clearer wording. Cheers. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.190.188.134 (talkcontribs)

"Wampas are fictional predators in the Star Wars universe, resembling Yetis or the extinct giant ground sloth."
How about that? EVula 14:29, 11 May 2006 (UTC)

Huh?[edit]

From the "Characteristics" section:

Like most species balances (such as highly intelligent but physically weak), wampas are incapable of acting past their killing instinct.

Can someone please explain what that sentence (specifically, the part about "species balances") is supposed to mean? --Allan McInnes (talk) 20:51, 30 May 2006 (UTC)

  • I assumed it meant most species are either big or clever, but not both. I wasn't really sure either though. I guess it could also include things like species with poor eyesight having good hearing, etc so things tend to even out. --Tim 22:57, 30 May 2006 (UTC)

From the same section: "equally beneficial situations": what in the world can that mean? Zaslav (talk) 05:30, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

Resembling Yetis?[edit]

Citations[edit]

Anyone? Kenilworth Terrace (talk) 20:45, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

The following statements do not appear to be capable of being verified by a primary source:

  • The Wampa's main prey is the Tauntaun.
  • they often suspend live prey from the ceiling of their lair using their own saliva to act as a sort of adhesive
  • In a deleted scene, C-3PO tears off one such sticker ...
  • Several other Wampa sequences were planned for Empire, but they were ultimately cut. ...
  • The Wampa sequences originally seen in Empire were shortened due to technical problems. ...
  • they all have a sense of sweetness that lures the prey

Redirect[edit]

Considering longstanding absence of citations and assertion of notability, despite prods on the talk page, I'm redirecting this article to List_of_Star_Wars_species_(U–Z)#Wampa, with a bit of merging of some broad content. Also di'ing the now-orphaned image. --EEMIV (talk) 15:54, 1 August 2012 (UTC)
