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!

  3. Oh my goodness I need that Leia and the Ewoks ones so badly. I haven't started collecting Star Wars Pops yet because I just didn't know where to begin (Hera from Rebels was a strong contender for my first as I love her and Twi'leks). But that scene in the Ewok village with Luke and Leia has always held a special resonance with me so I think I've found the start at last!

    1. Girl, I feel you. Those are my favorites as well. I can't wait to get my hands on Baby Nippet! There are so many different ways to go about collecting Funko Pops. I think having a favorite scene and collecting the characters from that memorable moment is a great way to start!
