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.

Dang nice pulls! Did you happen to get a lot of 1/6s with the order?


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.


Aw dang that’s what I’m scared of. I ordered some lord of the rings minis online and it was basically all 1/6 with a couple 1/12...

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...)

I actually came across 2 full cases at HT but passed since I wasn’t sure where to pull from. With the wallet being light from SDCC, I didn’t want to risk the disappointment of pulling 4 Chewies

Hit up 5 GameStops yesterday in search of 4-Lom. Pulled an AT-AT, GS Leia, Wampa, IG-88, and a few Landos as my "chase" slots. Can't complain too much about the IG-88, but was very frustrating thinking I had beat everyone (FINALLY) to a full case of these and then not pulling 4-Lom.

The IG-88 will forever elude me. Lol He’s the only one I’m looking for out of the set because he was my favorite as a kid. All 5 seconds of screen time he got, and then seeing the figure in store (one of my first Star Wars purchases) cemented him in a special place in my nerd heart with Chewbacca.

Also I found some of these at hot topic today and I bought a full case and got lando and IG-88. There was another box so I grabbed the middle four and got another lando and a wampa. I little disappointed I didn’t get the bossk or snow trooper but getting an extra lando and the wampa in four cases eased the pain.

I'm such an idiot...I knew better than to buy them on Amazon as they came from some toy store (Outlander Toy Store)...I ordered 4, got Han, Chewie, Yoda and Vader which I already had plenty, but, wanted to gamble to get a bounty hunter...anyhoo...One of them showed up with no shrink wrap, when I opened, there was a ton of glue and Vader was not in a black bag. Clearly, someone glued this one back to look like new. I'm kind of p*** because I expect a Toy Store to not do this...They clearly did it on purpose hoping someone wouldn't notice. Seriously? I guess I should have expected at a min a toy store might weight these and sort what they keep vs sell. Perhaps they thought vader was some other higher variable, then tried to sell it off. I accept my super low odds of getting a good one, but, don't cheat me. A-holes!
Update: Amazon removed my seller feedback, what!? I complained, they refunded...spent the $ at Gamestop today. Last time I buy blind bags from Amazon.

Picked up four boxes at game stop today. Got Vader,Yoda,Lando and Chewie. Happy I didn't get any doubles there. Got my six boxes in the mail from Hot Topic. Got two Vaders,a chewie, two regular hans and a wampa. So i'm only missing three of the regular ones and the exclusive ones which isn't so bad.

Nice, I got 4 today too...grabbed the middle boxes, Wampa, Lando and two R2D2. Donated the R2D2s, but, a good score on Wampa and Lando which I didn't yet have.

Hot Topic warehouse must have been inundated with orders for these, I just received an email saying they shipped the rest of my online order but not the minis.

Hey everyone, new to the board, but wanted to share the info my daughter and I had pulled together so far.
We pulled an IG-88 from GS (49.74) & from HT (49.41). Lucky enough to get a 4-LOM (53.90) & Leia (54.34) out of a Gamestop Case "B".

We grabbed the Top 6 from the box we found at Hot Topic. It appeared to be untouched. That layer had the following: IG-88, Lando (56.20), Hoth Han(54.15), Hoth Luke(56.91) and two Vaders(59.85 & 57.36).

We have struck out in the search for Wampa and AT-AT.

Sorry for the late reply, but it seems that Gamestop cases have sweet spots of top middle from my experience of hitting up stores. Got chase pulls every time I found an untouched case from the middle top slots. Still no luck with 4-Lom though!

Bummer that the most desired are store exclusives. So far only an IG-88 and Bossk. The troopers are harder to find. This set is essential as I'm a trooper nut and love the bounty hunters.

So an interesting issue is walking into gamestop and there are just a handful of boxes left. Do you assume someone too the chases or did someone take a bunch not knowing. I'd bet the ones left over are commons, but, you just don't know.

Im sure some have been found, I saw one on ebay. Seems to be more people showing off their 1/72. Perhaps they are just more excited about the 1/72, but, I expected many more people showing off their Fetts.

I’m in the same boat with you. Lol I’ve got all of my BH pops lined up on my case and they’ll never have their tiny counterparts. :(

Troopers are probably 90% of my Star Wars collection if not my entire collection. I’m up to date on almost everything except the Mudtrooper, SDCC Trooper, and the grails.

Ok, well let me know if you want this Yoda, else, its being donated to coworkers. BTW, pro-tip...yoda and R2 are easy to pick out of a case, they are the super light ones.

Congrats! Were they both in the top middle chase spots or elsewhere?
