Empire Strikes Back 3-Pack Hoth Rebels (Han Solo Hoth Outfit, Rebel Soldier, FX-7)
Here's a rather frosty-looking trio. They comprise one of three such 3-packs to be issued in 1980, all of which bear the bright yellow "Special Offer" sticker in their upper right corners. But unlike the Star Wars 3-packs that were released in 1979, all of which came with nifty cardboard backdrops, these ESB sets didn't come with anything particularly "special." Apparently, the figures themselves comprised the "special offer" to which the sticker refers.

The purple background on this one makes for an interesting package--its weird but I kind of like it. Although Chewbacca might have been a more appropriate inclusion here than the medical droid, FX-7, Chewie had been on store shelves for almost 3 years by 1980, and these 3-packs seem to have focused primarily on newer releases.
