EMPIRE Strikes Back Mystery Minis

Great things come in mysterious miniature or pint sized packages, but which great thing will it be? It's all a mystery until you open one. Then the fun begins.

Well crud, now I have to start living at the local Hot Topics and Targets until these are found. Target just has problems with the mystery minis. Half the time I see boxes and it's a set with Target exclusives they just have the common box.

I really want to get more of these (I pulled a Wampa last week) but all the 1:6's are killing my enthusiasm to just test my luck.

I found a half empty case today at gamestop that had the AT-AT driver and Lando. Guess who ever got the other half got all the 1/6s.


Nice Score! I may have bought the other half. I have tons of 1/6s lol


Hey, can you post the ratios for the Gamestop exclusives?

Walked into GS, asked if they had these, and saw them on the back counter. Did the old shake-weight method and got everything different except I forgot to grab a Vader lol

From what I could tell, here was the layout. Left vague as I didn't keep track of which 1/12 and higher came from which spot.

TOP ROW
Small figure
Chewie
Small figure

BOTTOM ROW
Non-1/6
Non-1/6 ; Vader
Vader ; Non-1/6

Sometimes you need to search the store, sometimes they put them in the pop culture area and sometimes in the Toy area.

Only bought 6 common boxes so far from an online store, but nothing too great pull-wise. So far I have Vader, Lando, Hoth Luke, and Bespin Han. I've pulled dupes of Vader and Hoth Luke.

Hoping more places start to get the common boxes so I have a shot at Boba and Dengar. Bounty Hunters will be a pain. Whole line will be a pain haha.

Went to Gamestop on a lark and found a seemingly untouched box.

BMR was AT-AT driver, and the other 3 were the two in the top front and a heavy one from the bottom row.
Heavy one turned out to be Chewie and the other two were Yoda and Luke.

Not that I’ve seen although, r2, yoda and Chewie seem to be in one layer. With the non 1/6’s and Vader in the other.

I'm so learning my lesson with these blind bags...picked up a ton of them at two different game stops. I basically left all the light weight ones as I assumed they were R2D2 and Yoda. So, I grabbed all the heavier ones...I now have 4 chewies, 4 vaders, 2 solo, 1 luke and 1 AT-AT driver. I already had extras of all of them except the AT-AT driver. I should just spend the cash and get the bounty hunters on ebay whenever they arrive and level out in price. I can't image how much $$$ and effort it would take to legit collect all the bounty hunters.

I'm glad to see that Vader is so much easier to obtain with this set. I might buy 1 or 2 blind boxes, but I learned my lesson from the first set. I'll probably go to ebay since I'm really only interested in Vader, Yoda, and R2-D2. I wouldn't be upset with a Lando or AT-AT (Gamestop) or Bossk (HT) either, but not going to seek them. I think I'd be most disappointed with another Chewbacca since the one in this line looks almost identical to the last set. It appears his hair is just windblown in this one?

I did. I basically have 2 sets of the 1/6s with Hoth Luke. And from earlier pulls I have 2 Vaders, R2, and Cloud City Han.

I'm sorry but I'm just insanely jealous of that Bossk. Amazing pull.

I'm mentally preparing myself for the cases with 2 missing that I'm going to see when these start showing up in the couple Hot Topics near me. I don't know about everyone else but I feel like competition in Mystery Mini collecting has become much more fierce recently. The rare figures get picked out within like 8 hours and then there is a box of 1/6 and if you're lucky 1/12 figures rotting on the shelf for the next 6 months. Just brutal.

My only consolation is that this is Star Wars and there will likely be restocks. (Although TLJ was Star Wars and the 4 Walmarts in my town never even got one case between them...)
