Damn you Funko! You and your adorably addictive Pop! Vinyls!!! For they continue to seduce us, like the powerful call to the dark side. This Return of the Jedi themed three pack of figures is no exception. If you only knew the power of the Pop! side…
It has been over 30 years since Return of the Jedi premiered in theaters and rounded out the original trilogy in the Star Wars saga. The film is full of some momentous scenes including; the rebellion’s assault on the (unfinished) second Death Star, Luke’s temptation to the dark side and final duel with Vader, and of course Vader’s redemption to the light side. However, it was always the first act of the movie, which takes place in the palace of the nefarious Jabba the Hutt, that has always ranked among my favorite part of the movie.
Luke, Leia, and the rest of our heroes had set plans in motion to rescue Han Solo, who was frozen in carbonate at the end of The Empire Strikes Back. After the freezing process, Han was brought to the bounty hunter, Boba Fett, and then delivered to Jabba as a trophy.
This Pop! Vinyl three pack depicts three of the characters, who played pivotal roles in some of those iconic scenes in Jabba’s Palace. When Jabba’s slave girl/dancer Oola begrudges the disgusting Hutt’s slimy advances, she is sent down to dungeon via a trap door, and becomes a snack for the monstrous Rancor. When Luke Skywalker brashly attempts to rescue his friends, he nearly befalls the same fate! Luckily, he escapes with his life, thanks to his Jedi know how and a really…really sharp, heavy door.
In this set you have the lovely, green Oola, Luke Skywalker wielding a leg bone, and the ravenous rancor. Both Oola and Luke stand at 3 and 3/4 inches. The vicious Rancor, who Funko have someone made adorably cute, stands at 6 inches tall. This set can yours for just $39.99, before shipping and handling.
