As The Empire Strikes Back celebrates its 40th Anniversary this year, Funko has announced a whole new lineup of Funko Pops based on the movie.
Funko is offering us a new unique collection of pop figures, including a Funko POP! Deluxe Star Wars: Battle at Echo Base Series!
Widely considered one of, if not the best film of the franchise The Empire Strikes Back, simply marked the history of cinema.
Here you are led from the snowy ice planet Hoth to the rainforest of Dagobah and then on to the cloud city on Bespin. Legendary characters like Yoda and Lando Calrissian are introduced, a romance develops between Leia and Han, and isn’t the AT-AT battle on the ice desert one of the greatest moments in film history?
And, hey, Darth Vader turns out to be Luke’s father in the end. Awesome.
The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary Funko POP!s feature Darth Vader in his Meditation, Leia (Bespin), and Luke riding his Tauntaun. Luke is also available in training mode with Yoda on his back. There is also a Han and Leia 2-Pack, and of course, Han encased in carbonite. There’s even a Funko Pop! Town of Yoda’s Hut. The two announced exclusives are R2-D2 and a 10 inches Boba Fett pop figure, and both can be found on Target chain stores.
That’s not all! In honor of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and its 40th Anniversary, an all-new line of unique and exclusive pops is being released capturing iconic characters during the opening scene of The Empire Strikes Back on the planet Hoth.
The Pop! Deluxe: Battle at Echo Base series feature 6 brand new unique figures, all with accompanying bases that can be combined to make one cohesive display.
These figures are exclusive to Amazon and will be released every other month over the next year. Each pop will be available for individual purchase, as they are announced, and the following figure will be announced when the previous pop begins shipping.
The first pop is of the iconic Star Wars alien the Wampa, holding a bone as he stands atop his glacier podium. The second release in the series was Han Solo, bundled up in his warmest garb, with a lightsaber in hand.
For the other 4 deluxe Pops, based on the silhouettes shown on the back of the packaging, we can expect to be:
Imperial Probe Droid
Darth Vader with Imperial Officer
The first two Funko Deluxe pieces are already available, and it can be found here.
I love all these Funko pops! Such a cool line, don’t you think? For me, Vader in his Meditation chamber is probably the coolest pop out of the new ones, and the Luke training with Yoda on Dagobah is adorable!!
Don’t miss this opportunity and grab a piece of your favorite movie!
