"Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back" Reveals at London Toy Fair
Next up for Funko's reveals at London Toy Fair is taking us to a galaxy far far away. Star Wars is as popular as ever as the sage finally concluded last year. This year however we get a remembrance at what made Star Wars great as 2020 marks the 40th anniversary of Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back. Funk has given us 8 Funko Pops in this reveal, one of them is an amazing moment, one is a pop ride and another is a Pop house. First, we are going to look at all the Bespin Funko Pops getting released with the first Princess Leia after landing on the floating station. Next, we are getting a Han and Leia 2 pack that shows them in the moments after Darth Vader has captured them. Lastly, for Bespin, we get to see Han in Carbonite which can be seen in one of the Smugglers Bounty boxes. We then travel to Dagobah as we are getting a Training Luke Pop with Yoda on his back and Yoda will be getting his hut in Pop form with a new Pop House (in stores now). Luke Skywalker will also be getting a Pop ride of him on a Tauntaun which will go nicely in any Hoth collection. The Final Funko Pop Star Wars release is my favorite one, it is Darth Vader in his chambers. We get to see an unmasked Darth Vader in his isolated room that looks highly detailed and appeals to the dark side in me. If that figure could have some lights and sound too it would really be a treat for collectors. All of these figures are available for pre-order and you can find them located here and here for Yoda Hut. Any could be announced later on as Exclusives as they have in the past so be prepared for changes.
May the Force be with you.
