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!
Star Wars – GITD Supreme Leader Snoke #182 (SDCC 2017 Exclusive)
Star Wars – Bodhi Rook #183 (SDCC 2017 Exclusive)
Star Wars – Combat Assault Tank Trooper #184 (SDCC 2017 Exclusive)

What’s that you say? I hope you don’t think we were done with POPs for this film, it is of course the Rogue One Wave 2 Funko POPs!
Yes it’s been a while since it’s release, and Episode VIII is coming out later this year but we have more Rogue One POPs for your perusal. It is possible there could be Rogue One POPs at NYCC or SDCC, because Funko is also planning on releasing Bodhi Rook. They showed off concept art for him quite some time ago, he seems to be a fan favorite as people seemed keen to get their hands on him! So will he be an exclusive at San Diego? Well they are revealing the first wave of SDCC POPs on June the 5th so keep your eyes peeled for that.
I’m glad they did a POP of Galen Erso, he’s a pretty good character though i could of done without Young Jyn Erso. Though i will still buy her because .. Star Wars, which happens to be the series i have the most complete collection of. They say for every 10,000 Obi Wan fans there is 1 Weeteef Cyubee fan, well i’m sure someone did somewhere because now we have a POP of him too. There are always fans for every niche character in something as big as Star Wars so i’m sure these extra characters will be appreciated by someone. What are your thoughts on this wave? Glam shots and info coming up!
Star Wars: Rogue One – Young Jyn Erso #185
Star Wars: Rogue One – Galen Erso #186
Star Wars: Rogue One – Weeteef Cyubee #187
Star Wars: Rogue One – Death Star Droid #189

Looking for a little something extra from the sci fi universe, then the Classic Star Wars Funko MyMojis may be for you!
Funko continues producing its MyMoji line with yet another addition, this time with the traditional Star Wars characters. Though i can’t say i’m a fan of these! What are your impressions on them, any MyMoji collectors here? I purchased a couple from this line not long ago and i wasn’t really impressed with the detail or molding on them, the quality left something to be desired. But i have to assume they are selling well if they continue producing them, maybe they have gotten better in time? The ones i have are from the DC MyMojis. In this line we have 8 different characters ranging from Yoda to Leia, and each has 3 different faces. Glam shot and info coming up!
