The countdown to SDCC 2017 has begun and with only 6 weeks until the mega-event kicks off, Funko has announced their first wave of exclusives - 4 new Star Wars Pops!
Funko will be bringing at least 4 new Pops! to the Nexus of Nerd with Bodhi Rook, Hover Tank Trooper, 6” Holographic Snoke, and a duel pack of Leia ad R2-D2 announced as exclusives for the Con! If you aren’t heading to the SDCC and don't want to pay scalper prices, look for these exclusives to be shared with Funko’s retail partners in a similar fashion to this years Celebration exclusives.
Bodhi Rook is a welcomed edition to the Rogue One set and will nicely complete the collection of Rebels. I’m happy to see Bodhi getting a little more representation, with the 3.75” Hasbro figure and now a Pop! we are only missing a 6” Black Series figure!
The Hover Tank Trooper will nicely fill out the Imperial Pop! ranks and is one of the last new troopers from Rogue One to get a Pop! sculpt. I have always been a fan of the troopers in Pop! form and this is no exception!
The 6” glow-in-the-dark Snoke Pop! was an exciting surprise announcement as I didn't expect any merchandise for the Supreme Leader until The Last Jedi was in theatres. The 6" scale is perfect for this character and for anyone keeping track, Funko will be the only line to have both Snoke and and Ep. 7 Luke figures on the shelves. This Pop! is at the top of my must-have list!
The holographic Leia and R2 Pop! set continues Funko’s celebration of the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars: A New Hope. I discussed May’s Smugglers Bounty 40th Anniversary box last week and this set nicely complements that, bringing one of the most iconic scenes from ANH to Pop! form. Needless to say, this will be one of the most sought after Pops! at SDCC 2017.
Funko has really hit the mark with these exclusives, giving us characters to fill out the Rogue One collection, a first time figure, and a perfect celebratory piece!
Keep an eye on the TSW Toy Box for more SDCC reveals!
