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.

Pretty sure I pulled a wampa from a HT exclusive case today. Anyone have an idea what the other rare mini could be? I have a weight of 51.4 for the other "mystery" mini in the case

You're looking at 1/24 max, so nothing special.

Yeah, concurring with the 1/24 max. I don't think Wampa is paired with any 1/72 in any of the cases.

Found a box of these at Target in Burlington, NC today. Grabbed only 2 of them. Got the exclusive Luke and another Chewbacca.

Came across a case at Target today as well and was able to get the Luke. Unfortunately the case was already messed with and 1 box was gone.

Lucky you that you are able to spot these boxes at Target...

Ok, I came across 3 Target cases today in my adventures. All the layouts were different (and I can't really remember exact slots for each case), but the chase boxes were right next to each other.

Case C - Lobot (52.0) and Lando
Case D - Wampa and Leia
Cafe F - IG-88 and Lando

The exclusive Luke is next to Han (who is about ~53-54), with Luke being more in the ~51-52 range. Hope this info helps people.

Thanks for the tips! I found a case A, also Lobot but with Leia.

Found a full case at Target. Wasn't going to get too many, but they rang up as $4.49 each so I got the whole case. If mine was untouched, the top layer and back two on the bottom were the 1/6 figures. Mine was a case A with Lobo and Leia.

I'm going to say yes. Found a second case that had Luke, but no Lobot.

It had Zuckuss instead. :cheers:

I can confirm that Luke is 1/12 because I got him in two different cases. I got a Lobot one case and the other was a Wampa, so I think Lobot is 1/36.

Congrats on the Zuckuss! I need him to complete the set.

He's already found a home, but I'll keep looking for more and let you know.

Okay so...the only things I want from this case are Vader and Wampa (I have Yoda and R2 already, got them on eBay). I just ordered a small scale, does anyone have weights for Vader/Wampa?

Never found at Target. Not too surprising as anything good is scooped up by employees. Still don’t know why Target and Toy Tokyo are allowed to have some of the best exclusives when it it always a mess?

I found that most Targets in my area have these, but only a couple locations have put them out yet. An employee told me they didn't have a location assigned in their system. At a couple locations I was able to show the employees a receipt with the DPCI (323012406) and they saw that they were in the back and offered to go get them out for me.

I was fortunate enough to find Zuckuss (58.9g - exactly the same as the two Vaders in that case) at the very last location I had to check.

Now it's time to sit around hoping my one Hot Topic gets a re-stock, and it's the one with Bossk, and I get there before it's picked. I'm not feeling optimistic about that. I'll probably have to just bite the bullet and wait for an ebay coupon.

For some reason I don't like the Target exclusives for this set. So far I'm able to manage myself not to get them.

Bought 6 from a sealed box at target this week. Got 3 Vaders and 3 Yodas. I was there when they opened the box. This 1/6 thing is getting out of hand.

Resorted to eBay, but got Zuckuss for a decent price which now completes my Star Wars set. As much as I love all the SW minis, I hope we get a nice long break from them.

Found a box at Target but two were missing so I left it, assuming someone already picked it over.
