Funko Is Releasing a New Yoda Pop Figure to Honor The Empire Strikes Back’s 40th Anniversary
If you've already pre-ordered your Baby Yoda (a.k.a. "The Child") Funko Pop!, there's now another tiny green figure from the Star Wars universe to add to your collection. As ComicBook.com reports, Funko is releasing a new Yoda figure in honor of the 40th anniversary of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.
The new toy is part of Funko's Pop! Town line—which includes Pop! characters with models of buildings from their worlds. The Yoda doll is shown sitting on a log with his staff alongside his Dagobah swamp hut, which appears just as it does in the 1980 Star Wars sequel.
The Yoda hut set is the latest item announced in Funko's The Empire Strikes Back anniversary collection. The other figures revealed at the London Toy Fair earlier this month include a carbonite-encased Han Solo, a Tauntaun-riding Luke Skywalker, and a maskless Darth Vader in his meditation chamber. Leia appears twice—once in her Bespin outfit and again in a two-pack with Han—and Luke is also available in training mode with Yoda on his back. Those figures are now available to pre-order on Amazon, with shipping set for April.
Yoda's hut pack is set to ship out even sooner. If you order yours today for $30, you can expect to get it by February 2020. That means your Baby Yoda Funko Pop! will have a companion when it arrives this spring.
