In a galaxy not so far away, The Force Awakens Funko POPs are arriving!
By now we’ve all seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens and even though we’ve now begun a new year, there’s no reason for audiences and fans to forget about the galaxy far, far away. One aspect still being kept very much alive is the merchandise. Funko have announced their second wave of POP! vinyl figures for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and unlike the first wave featuring only the new characters such as Rey, Finn, and Kylo Ren, this second wave now consists of our classic heroes such as a certain scoundrel and princess. Let’s take a look below at what we can expect from wave 2 coming this month.
Smuggler. Scoundrel. Hero. Han Solo, captain of the Millennium Falcon, was one of the great leaders of the Rebel Alliance.
Princess Leia Organa was one of the Rebel Alliance’s greatest leaders, fearless on the battlefield and dedicated to ending the tyranny of the Empire.
A veteran commander, Ackbar led the defense of his homeworld, Mon Cala, during the Clone Wars and then masterminded the rebel attack on the second Death Star at the Battle of Endor.
A jowled, mouse-eyed native of Sullust, Nien Nunb was an arms dealer and smuggler who piloted the Mellcrawler.
The era of frontier lawlessness that followed the Galactic Civil War led to the rise of the colorful pirate, Sidon Ithano, the subject of many an exaggerated cantina tale.
The mysterious Varmik also makes its Pop! debut!
When the Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandise released on Force Friday, I made sure to get a Funko POP! of Captain Phasma. Gwendoline Christie, despite having limited screen time, still stood out on screen (She’s 6 foot 3!) and I was sure to write about Why Gwendoline Christie & Captain Phasma Rock! Joe wrote about Daisy Ridley and you could check out what he had to say here, along with his review of the film here.
Is there a new Star Wars POP! that you’re looking forward to? Maybe there’s one that you’re hoping they’ll release, but they haven’t already – like a Force Awakens Luke Skywalker? Let us know in the comments below. We’re all fans here and we’d love to know!
