So. San Diego Comic-Con is basically two weeks away. My body is not ready. Neither is anything else. Don’t get me wrong, I’m excited about the convention–I’m just bracing myself. One aspect that’s making me feel more pumped is learning about the offerings from toy companies, and Funko has a long list of exclusives for attendees. Their latest wave of announcements (wave seven for those of you playing along at home) has my favorite Star Wars-related Comic-Con exclusive so far: Princess Leia as Boushh!
I get so tired of seeing Leia toys focused on the metal bikini that I practically want to hug other versions. Her Boushh disguise from Return of the Jedi is my second favorite Leia look (Hoth Leia forever), and the bounty hunter costume is not featured on enough merchandise. At all. The Pop! version of Leia comes without the Boushh mask, and she’s holding a thermal detonator because it’s never a bad thing to have a thermal detonator at your side.
Two other toys in the latest batch of exclusives caught my eye, too: a creepy grinning Ultron from Avengers: Age of Ultron and a very adorable Rocket Raccoon holding a tiny potted Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy. Awwww.
