UPDATE – A New Star Wars Funko POP Spotted Online!

Published

on

Fans of The Empire Strikes Back should get ready for a new Star Wars Funko POP release! The latest POP found online via website Popcultcha.com is the medical droid 2-1B! Unfortunately, those of us in the US and Canada cannot order this one from their website. No other information has officially been released from Funko about this one, so no release date has been given.

UPDATE – We now have confirmation that this will be a Walgreens exclusive.  Happy hunting!

Check out the official glam shot below!

Funko Star Wars 2-1B POP

Funko Star Wars 2-1B POP

Remember when the Wampa brutally attacked Luke Skywalker on Hoth? Or when Darth Vader sliced Luke’s arm off during their lightsaber battle on Bespin? Well now you can own the incredible droid responsible for putting back together with Funko’s new Star Wars – 2-1B Medical Droid Pop! Vinyl Figure!

2-1B had long experience with humans, giving him a caring bedside manner. It was thanks to this that Skywalker specifically requested 2-1B’s treatment following the loss of his hand.

This Pop! features the 2-1B Medical Droid with a stunning, shiny blue finish, making him the perfect addition to any true Star Wars collection.

You can build your Star Wars Funko POP collection with a selection of guaranteed mint-in-mint-box POPs from our Affiliate Entertainment Earth.

Photo Gallery – Smuggler’s Bounty Mystery Minis Darth Maul

Published

on

One of my favorite modern Star Wars collectibles has to be Mystery Minis from Funko. Mystery Minis are basically figures packaged in a small box that looks exactly like every other box in the case. The idea is that the identity of the figures are kept secret until you open the box. While Funko POP have taken a nice section of my display room, the Mystery Minis are quietly building their case as my favorite Star Wars Funko product.

#Note – Funko provided a sample Smuggler’s Bounty box for the purpose of this review.

Upon opening the newest Smuggler’s Bounty box from Funko, I was pleasantly surprised to find another Mystery Mini in this box. Last month’s box contained a Star Wars: The Last Jedi Luke Skywalker Mystery Mini! Unlike last month’s box, there is only one available figure (there were two different versions of Luke).

We will review the entire box during next week’s podcast, but this piece was just too cool not to share. Darth Maul is one of fandom’s top Star Wars villains, even though his theatrical appearance lasted all of about six minutes. The overall look of the character immediately made him one of interest to collectors and fans.

The overall sculpt of the piece fits right in line with the rest of Funko’s Star Wars Mystery Minis. He comes with the same base that all of the figures come with, so he can interlock with the rest of your  figures. The paint application is also spot on. My only complaint is one that I have with this entire line. Figures with lightsabers always seem to have them bent, due to the packaging process. I doubt this is something that can truly be fixed, but a little hot water will probably allow you to bend it back in place.

Check out the photo gallery below!

This figure is well worth the price of the Smuggler’s Bounty box!

The only problem I have now, is deciding where to put him. To this point, Funko has only released Star Wars Mystery Minis based on Star Wars: A New Hope, and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. I guess he will be the official start of my Star Wars: The Phantom Menace Mystery Minis collection.

Endor is the Next Focus for Smuggler’s Bounty

Published

on

The Smuggler’s Bounty Star Wars Sith box has officially closed, and you can expect them to start showing up on doorsteps soon.  Since that box has officially closed, it is time for Funko to announce their next box.  The new box is sure to be a favorite of fans of Return of the Jedi. Get ready to welcome the Smuggler’s Bounty Endor box.

Since this is the initial advertisement for the box, not much is known about it. With the focus being Endor we can probably guess that we will get some Ewok merchandise, maybe some Endor Rebels merchandise, and more. With the addition of the Walmart Ewok 3-pack, Funko now has Wicket, Logray, Chief Chripa, and Teebo in POP form. What other Ewoks might we see?

Check out the first advert for the box today.
