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.

Kansas. No sign of the ESB common case or the Target case at all here. I see a lot of common Solo cases though, and even a common case of the original Star Wars set.


Thanks for the reply. I read your post incorrectly. I thought you found the three target exclusives. lol I've only seen the ESB common cases at local comic/toy stores or Boxlunch. I just need the 3 Target to complete the set.

Yeah, unfortunately we don't have a BoxLunch here, the closest one is 3 hours away and our comic book stores don't want to carry Funko products for some stupid reason.

At least this go around has R2-D2, if there aren't 4 1/6's in this set it might not be that bad.


Sadly there are 4 1:6 ratio minis. I think that has become to the new model for mystery minis. I bought 23 boxes from different cases and ended up with only 11 minis that were not duplicates. It was disappointing.

Does anyone have the DPCI for the Target exclusive ESB boxes? I don't think I've seen them around yet in my area.

I spoke to a Target employee a week or so ago who told me their reset of the Funko and Toys areas was supposed to be complete by August 31, and that was also when the ESB boxes were supposed to release, but some Targets might put them out a bit before that.

I have no real reason to think this guy was or wasn't credible, but it's August 14th and I'm starting to believe it more every day.

Regardless I am visiting a Target more or less every day. What I saw with the Harry Potter minis is if you don't get there first, there will be 2-4 figures missing and none of the remaining ones will be worth buying.

That's true, I definitely saw the target HP minis pillaged within days of checking. I did get lucky on the R&M minis that were missing 2 boxes but still got the Toxic exclusives.

There have been plenty of times Funko has stated that a figure is not in an exclusive assortment, but then it ends up appearing in the case. Didn't it just happen with Rick and Morty Series 2? Really hoping IG-88 is still in there and the Lobot is really a 1/12 or something. Wishful thinking, but let's see what people start pulling.

I've seen more fresh cases of ESB locally than any other series, and of a variety of exclusives, but they've ALL been Wampa cases, no matter what... it's really getting stupid...

Found a case at my B&N! Went with the sweet spot of top middle and bottom middle and pulled a Boba Fett! No luck on Dengar though.

Yeah as much as I love Empire, bobbles are always really tough and I end up with a lot of doubles myself so it’s been really hard to get started on this set. I really love the sculpts for them though

Just a reminder... You have a lot of duplicates, common or exclusives, and want to get rid of them? PM me. My top common wants are Hoth Luke and Hoth Leia; my top exclusive wants are Bespin Leia (GS) and Hoth Han (HT). Bounty hunters are also highly desirable (except Boba Fett). Thanks everybody!

Have yet to see the Target exclusives or even a common box. Have gotten some from HT but only pulled the Hoth Han so far.

New to the Forum!!!

Figured this post made the most sense adding my first comment as this is what I am actively hunting today!

Awesome set, I love the Wampa and added Boba yesterday! (Check your local Barnes and Noble if you have one local!) I am still after 4-Lom and eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Target exclusives, that Zuckuss looks super awesome!

Cant wait to be more active within this community on the forum!

Happy Hunting!

That is one that I have yet to pull. That is actually one that I think is very nice looking. There are only a few that I'd keep for the sake of keeping in my collection and that is one that I dig.

Is there a case assortment with Leia and Lando in the chase spots?

I found a full case at Barnes & Noble with five boxes under 50g — I figured they were two Yodas, two R2s and one Leia. I got the other chase spot in case it was Boba or Dengar, and it turned out to be Lando. Just making sure I didn’t do something stupid.

If you still have one of the boxes, you might be able to use the app to scan in the barcode and click on the item once it comes up (if it does). If you scroll to the bottom of the item listing, there should be a DPCI.

Also, if anybody has an extras (commons or exclusives, with a particular emphasis on bounty hunters) they want to get rid of, PM me. I'm buying. Cheers!

Barnes & Noble restocked, and I was able to pull a Dengar! (Unfortunately he came with twin Darth Vaders because the case was jumbled, and the case weights were all over the place.)

So now my doubles are Hoth Luke x2, Hoth Leia, Hoth Han, Darth Vader x2, Wampa, Lando Calrissian and IG-88. I’m only looking for Boba Fett, Snowtrooper, Bossk, 4-LOM and Target exclusives. “Only.”
