Return of the Jedi Funko Pops Coming Soon | Anakin and His Angel

On January 9th fans went crazy over multiple BoxLunch store Instagram postings featuring the previously leaked Return of the Jedi Funko Pops. Funko never officially announced this wave of figures so their arrival came as quite a surprise. I hit up one of my BoxLunch stores and was lucky enough to find all five that have been released so far: Princess Leia (Ewok Village Dress), Han Solo (Endor Gear), Wicket, Emperor Palpatine and Lando Calrissian.

Just today Funko made an official announcement about the Return of the Jedi Funko Pops with glam shots stating that they are "Coming Soon". They also showcased the Electrocuted Darth Vader that is pictured behind the box. This figure was not one that turned up with the rest of the shipment at BoxLunch stores so I was curious to learn whether Darth Vader was an exclusive or not. Turns out he's just a common but read on to discover an exciting variant!

Along with the announcement made today Funko revealed three new Pop figures that we have't seen yet that are all exclusive to Target (expected to be released on March 1st). This includes a 10" Wicket, an extremely adorable Flocked Baby Nippet, and a glow in the dark variant of Electrocuted Darth Vader. Trust me when I say these are going to go fast once they start turning up!

Not pictured or mentioned by Funko is a Movie Moments of C-3PO on Throne (Ewok Village) and a Pop Pez of the Ewok, Logray. These characters were included on some retail store Funko Pop listings along with the others that have been announced. Hopefully we will get word on these soon!



Earlier last week I uploaded a video showcasing all of the figures I was able to find at BoxLunch. If you haven't checked your local store yet be sure to give them a call. Please note, these are not yet available on their website.

I made a trip to Hot Topic today and saw the figures stocked in their large Funko Pop wall so definitely hit them up as well if you haven't acquired them yet. These are also not yet available on their website.

As the ROTJ Funko Pops start turning up in more retail stores and become available to order online I will write up a new post concerning where you can purchase these!

Which Pop figures are you hoping to get? Leave a comment below and let me know or hit me up on Twitter!

What I Wore

Spirit Jersey: ShopDisney
Vigoss Jeans Nordstrom Rack (Similar)
A New Day Pumps: Target
Fedora: Amazon
Stormie Crocheted Doll: Made especially for me by my mom

I have been waiting for Disney to release a Star Wars Spirit Jersey and the time has finally come! This Stormtrooper Spirit Jersey is currently available on the Shop Disney website for $52.95. I think this design will be hitting the parks soon but if you feel it has spoken to you on a deep level don't hesitate to order it! In the words of Emperor Palpatine, "DO IT!". This Spirit Jersey is a unisex fit made of 100% cotton and it's available in sizes XS - XXL (I'm 5'2" and wearing the XS). I think the design is fantastic and I especially love that it glows in the dark! I truly believe this is just the beginning of many more Star Wars Spirit Jerseys to come and I think the opening of Galaxy's Edge would be a great time to launch new ones. But for now, I'm going to enjoy constantly wearing this one because I'm sure you all know about my deep admiration for Troopers.

Before my mom so kindly bought me this one I often wore my other Spirit Jersey, which is Disneyland themed, with jeans and sneakers since I usually wore it at the Parks. However, I do think these are great for wearing ANYWHERE! I decided to spruce my Spirit Jersey up a bit with a fedora and a pair of colorful heels. You know that feeling when you feel super comfortable and really good about yourself? That's what happened when I wore this outfit. I went out to lunch and to the mall and I felt great! I didn't tag along Stormie but I couldn't help but include him in the photos.
