Funko is Making the Cutest STAR WARS Darth Vader TIE Fighter Toy of All Time

Oh, pop culture, you send us such confusing signals sometimes.

Barely six months ago—when Rogue One was in theaters—everyone was all hyped that Darth Vader was badass again. The lightsaber in the dark! The choking! The lava castle! The sadistic mockery of magical strangulation!

Yeah, that was then. This is Wednesday, where we got a look at a brand new Star Wars Funko Pop that makes us go “D’awwwww! Look at da iddy-biddy Sith Lord with his widdle hands and adorable annoyed face!”

Obviously, we know a mask can’t actually make different faces, and that the style here is exaggeration. But it looks for all the world like the leader of the Imperial Fleet looks upset that he locked his keys inside the car. That said, cool Death Star base. And what an extremely tiny Death Star it must be. Somebody in the Pop universe evidently made a Spinal Tap-style measurement confusion interpreting Galen Erso’s blueprints. Being a Pop, said individual is probably acting extremely big-headed nonetheless.

Darth Vader in his TIE Fighter will be a Target exclusive sometime next month, augmenting the amply stocked Funko sections most stores have now. Seriously, if you want not just Funko Pops, but shirts and other merchandise covered in pictures of Funko Pops, you might wanna make like an X-Wing pilot and…

…stay on Target.
