Igloo Releases New Playmate Coolers Inspired by a Galaxy Far Far Away

November 17, 2020

(Katy, Texas) – Four brand-new Igloo Playmate coolers inspired by the globally loved Star Wars™ saga just landed in our galaxy. Each special-edition design, in partnership with Lucasfilm, features custom artwork depicting fan-favorite characters, from a legendary Wookiee warrior and droid allies to fearsome villains. 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 igloocoolers.com/starwars. 

“Working with Lucasfilm to bring world-famous Star Wars™ characters to life on America’s favorite lunchbox was out of this world!” said Brian Garofalow, Chief Marketing Officer at 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 artfully 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 faithful first mate, while the BB-8 Playmate Mini showcases the adorable 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 fearsome 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 igloocoolers.com/starwars, while supplies last.
