For San Diego Comic Con 2015, Loungefly released two exclusive Star Wars coin purses. The first was a glitter version of the standard black Darth Vader coin purse (reviewed here), the second was a pink version of the white Stormtrooper coin purse that is coming soon (as seen in earlier preview photos).
Limited to 600 of each, the coin purses came with their own special black box, noting their edition size. The coin purses were priced at US$35 each, sold direct from Loungefly’s booth at the convention.
I was really excited to see these variations, especially the stormtrooper. I love pink but it’s not often used in Star Wars geek fashion. This coin purse is made from a flexible 3D moulded silicone. The Imperial Stormtrooper helmet is such an iconic Star Wars element, it’s fun to see a version in such a bold colour choice. This particular sculpt has all the recognisable details – an impressive feat for it’s size.
The coin purse measures approximately 13cm high, 11.5cm across and 7cm deep at the widest points. The internal capacity is roomy enough to hold credit cards, cash and even a few small items like lipstick and car keys – I can even fit my compact digital camera! The coin purse features a matching pink zip with silver-toned hardware – the zipper pull features the Loungefly logo. The wrist strap is attached with a clip, so it can be removed if you wish. The strap comes packaged folded up inside the bag, but loosens out nicely.
Inside the coin purse is lined with a matching pink satin fabric, with a pocket on one side underneath an embroidered black and silver Star Wars logo patch. The back features a slightly raised Star Wars logo – I like the added detail of the subtle ‘brow trim’ line across the back too.
If you missed out on this great item at the convention, then I suggest looking around on eBay (pricing and shipping options will vary with sellers). The standard white version of this stormtrooper coin purse is coming soon – I’ll be sure to post as soon as it’s available. In the mean time, check out Loungefly.com for their amazing range of Star Wars handbags and wallets, which includes the two other bags seen in my size comparison photos below (the Stormtrooper crossbody bag and the Darth Vader mini dome bag).
