The largest convention in the USA is returning again this Summer, along with that of course comes a slew of exclusive POPs! Come and check out part 1 of the San Diego Comic Con 2017 reveals right here!
It seems Funko has decided that their first reveal will be all about Star Wars! Continuing to celebrate the 40th Anniversary, which will combine with various other releases such as the upcoming Target Exclusive Darth Vader POP Deluxe. The first POP we have for you is the much rumored “Bodhi Rook” POP, Funko has been hinting at this POP for a long time so it’s nice that we finally get to see him in full. Come to think of hint Funko hinted at all of these POPs except for the “Assault Tank Trooper”, but whether you like that Leia comes with an R2-D2 is another matter i suppose.
I’m sure many may say they already have an R2-D2 POP, and from the outset he doesn’t appear to be any different than the typical version of him. Although i did report some time ago that they were creating a whole new mold for the Droids like R2-D2, this would be where only the top part of his head bobbles. I’m going to assume they’re using that new mold with this one, or at least i hope so! Being a new mold i’m thinking he will be much better quality than the previous R2-D2 so i don’t mind him being there, can’t wait to see them in person!
Funko has mentioned that “most” of the SDCC exclusives will be shared, all 4 here will be at least as none of them say that they are limited to a certain amount. We do have a 6″ POP here which is “Supreme Leader Snoke”, as far as i know it’s the very first Holo 6″ POP. Though he is of course not truly that big, this is just to represent his much larger size when he appears in hologram form in the film. His true size and pretty much any information about him still remains a mystery, but look out for Episode VIII POPs later this year! So who is your favorite from this first reveal? Glam shots and info coming up!
