Funko’s STAR WARS Celebration Exclusives are Delightful

Do you hear that sound? It’s the pitter-patter of feet dancing in anticipation outside the Funko booth at Star Wars Celebration Orlando. The ultimate Star Wars fan event doesn’t kick off until April 13, but I can already feel the presence of determined collectors. You’ll have to be among the strongest to get a chance to get your paws on Funko’s exclusives at the convention. They’ve announced the first wave, and fans are drooling more than a hungry rancor.

You know what I like most about Funko Pop! vinyl figures? There’s an endless supply of inspiration. Just when I think they’ve featured all the characters, I remember, duh, it’s Star Wars and there are about a million choices and costumes to choose from. Plus, they do rad things like pair characters with vehicles. Please behold this Rey with her speeder:

I can hear “Rey’s Theme” in my head.

They also have Pop! figures featuring Garindan (he was in Mos Eisley in A New Hope), Han Solo in an action pose, holographic Qui-Gon Jinn, and Chopper from Star Wars Rebels in his go-to Imperial disguise paint job. How did Funko know my Chopper collection needed another figure? You can see all these vinyl beauties in the gallery below along with a prototype Boba Fett wobbler. Ooh.

Remember, this is only wave one. They’ll be rolling additional announcements about exclusives as Celebration approaches. I hope they give us more Rogue One designs, like Galen Erso, please. I mean, the dude is responsible for rigging a trap in the Death Star. I’d be thrilled to see another Hera with a Pop! version of the Ghost. Or how about a droids set? Or holographic Leia? My wish list is longer than 12 parsecs. Never mind the fact that I have almost no shelf space left.

If you want a chance at getting a priority ticket with a reserved time to visit the Funko booth at Celebration Orlando, you have to commit and enter the lottery. You can get more details at Funko. May the Force be ever in your favor or whatever the saying is.

Which items from the first wave of exclusives from Funko are at the top of your list? I’d trade an ambulatory strut to get the Chopper Pop! figure. Head to the comments and tell me what you’re prioritizing and what other characters you hope to see in future waves.

Did you know Rogue One had an alternate ending, though?
