Update 04/30/13 Star Wars 3 Variant and Chaser revealed.



Update 04/01/13 Steven Miller released some product info for the Star Wars 3 series. The highlights include a $13 price point for blind boxes as opposed to the $15 of SW2. Also, the 2000 LE size for the Han Solo. His price point is a whopping $33 and he will be available at Disneyland as well.

The Disney Park Blog has released a photo of 11 of the figures for the upcoming Return of the Jedi themed Star Wars Series 3 Vinylmation set plus 2 Limited Edition figures. These will all debut, along with the Vinylmation Series 9 Jr. Droids, at Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios beginning on May 17th. (then presumably later at Disneyland)

Star Wars #3 – Limited Release Mystery Series
Top Row: Imperial Guard, Logray, Scout Trooper, Wicket, Bib Fortuna
Middle Row: Lando in disguise, Gamorrean Guard, Nien Nunb, Leia in disguise
Bottom Row: Admiral Ackbar, Jedi Master Skywalker

Retail: $12.95 each
Item Number: 400007392601

A few of the highlights: 2 Ewoks. We knew there had to be at least one. Another Luke… this time in black Jedi robes. Another Lando… this time in disguise and it seems to use the same helmet shaped head Vader had in Series 2. A continued use of ears to show back grounds, such as the stars in space and the trees on Endor. I think it is an well chosen lineup out of the film.

Jabba The Hutt and Salacious B. Crumb – 9-inch + 1.5-inch set
Retail $59.95
Edition Size: 1,000

Han Solo in Carbonite – 3-inch figure

  • Is that Leia in her disguise, last figure in the second row? I guess the fanboy fantasy of bikini Leia vinyl is not to be.

    The chaser has to be the Emperor.

  • I would also assume that Palpatine is the chaser. However, since that’s the obvious choice, and since he does appear in Episodes I – III, I think it would be a cool surprise to see a Rancor as the chaser!

    • I wouldn’t want this, but they could go a little more obscure and do characters from Sy Snootles and the Max Rebo band.

      • I would like to see a 4 pack or 2 x 2 packs of the Cantina Band with instrument accessories. That would rock!
