New pic of Yoda and his hut
The 40th Anniversary ESB POPS look amazing! I already have Han and the Tauntaun. The meditation chamber is a must.
40th Anniversary Luke on TaunTaun
Saw a few of The Mandalorian Pops in Entertainer today. I liked The Armorer but gave it a pass.
They're releasing a regular size version of the one the Boba Fett Futura Pops in connection with Emerald City Comic Con. It's going to be a target exclusive.
I want the Yoda and his hut and the Luke and Taun Taun.
Went to Galaxy's Edge Anaheim during the week and picked up DJ-R3X & Hondo Ohnaka.
I just noticed it was Luke and not Han from those pics @PadmeLeiaJaina
Is the cronoa virus impacting Funko's production at the moment? I thought for sure we'd have seen a second wave of TROS Pops announced by now.
Highly possible. I checked the bottom of the box on my nearest Funko Pop (Golden Boba) and it does say Made in China.
No, not that anyone is aware of. They have a majority of their factories in Vietnam now too. They did a second wave, that was dark side Rey, red eyes 3po, and the KoR in chrome. I would be very shocked if they did a wave 3. There’s no other major characters to make really, and any variants (or the emperor) would be better suited to cons. The Last Jedi pops stopped releasing after its second wave too, so I assume this will be similar.
Not doing a Ben Solo, reborn Palpatine or even Rey with her new lightsaber at the end seems like a big missed opportunity for them though.
That’s what con exclusives are for. Snapping Tony isn’t even a normal wide release, and that’s a bigger deal than any pop from TROS.
More ESB 40th Pops:
Would like to have gotten a General Rieekan Pop in that Battle of Echo Base collection but it looks like Han, Chewie, probe droid, Leia/Han? and Vader/Snowtrooper are the other ones.
I'd probably pick up that Wampa if I saw it - I like the ferocious look.
That Wampa looks pretty good. Might have to pick that one up.
Trying to collect all of the ESB 40th Pops, ordered the Wampa yesterday. As probably expected, they've announced a bunch of different versions of Baby Yoda (holidng cup, using the Force, eating, concerned, etc.). At least they seem to be off their chrome kick now.
Same, pretty excited for these!
Are the Han and Leia pops from the "I love you" scene available separately or just as a two pack?
Just as the two pack! Kinda shocked they didn't announce any more pops than just the new Mando wave yesterday. Then again, Funko also announced that they're having issues with production so I guess best to take it easy.
I think this is the first time they've had some KOTOR pops:
Probably not the first choice I'd have from TROS for a new POP but maybe they're going off of doing a Sith Trooper last year too.
Is that Yoda a KOTOR pop?
The third Pop in the Battle of Hoth series.
There's a whole new line of Galaxy's Edge specific stuff coming to Target, including this obscure R5 unit.
