Last year, Funko greeted us with a special Avengers Assemble Pop Diorama that will feature all 6 original Avengers in an amazing connected diorama. This is a huge step up from the usually Funko Pops we see and it looks like it wasn't the last. Funko has recently announced that in honor of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and its 40th Anniversary is this year it'll be getting special Pops. These Pop will all connect and create the opening scenes from Empire Strikes Back and we get a look at the 1st of 6 Pops coming out. The first pop is of the iconic Star Wars alien the Wampa and features a new mold and detail than before. These figures will be released every other month over the next year and are exclusive to Amazon. The Funko Deluxe piece is priced at $24.99 and is up for pre-order already. You can find links and more located here. For the other 5 deluxe Pops it looks like we will also be getting:
- Han with Lightsaber
- Roaring Chewie
- Imperial Probe Droid
- Princess Leia
- Darth Vader with Imperial Officer
Can't wait to see what the other figure will look like and how awesome it'll look when fully connected.
May the Force be with You.
