Lucasfilm, Igloo Blast-Off Cool New ‘Star Wars’ Merch

New coolers have launched from a galaxy far, far away.

Four brand-new Igloo Playmate coolers inspired by the “Star Wars” saga just landed. Each special-edition design, in partnership with Lucasfilm, features custom artwork.

The coolers depict fan-favorite characters, from a Wookiee warrior and droid allies to villains and more. This new collection of Playmate Pal and Playmate Mini coolers — including Chewbacca, Boba Fett, BB-8 and Stormtrooper – expands upon Igloo’s previously released “Star Wars” Playmates. The entire Star Wars-inspired Playmate collection is available today at

“Working with Lucasfilm to bring world-famous ‘Star Wars’ characters to life on America’s favorite lunchbox was out of this world!” says Brian Garofalow, chief marketing officer, Igloo. “Together, we extended our Playmate collection of ‘Star Wars’ characters to include the Wookiee, droid and villains fans love loyally. With one of these new Playmates by your side, the cool will be with you, always.”

Igloo designed each new “Star Wars”-inspired Playmate with detailed custom graphics on all four sides of the cooler’s tent top, perfectly capturing the featured character. The Chewbacca Playmate Pal serves as a first mate, while the BB-8 Playmate Mini showcases the astromech droid and fellow ally. On the dark side, the Boba Fett Playmate Pal is inspired by the most notorious bounty hunter in the galaxy, and the Stormtrooper Playmate Pal depicts a member of the Imperial Army.

Each Playmate Pal has a 7-quart capacity (fitting up to nine 12-ounce cans), while the smaller Playmate Mini has a 4-quart capacity (up to six 12-ounce cans). Igloo’s entire “Star Wars” Playmate Collection, ranging $29.99–$39.99, can be purchased at, while supplies last.
