Not only did Funko announces a bevy of exclusive Pops that can only be found at Star Wars Celebration Chicago 2019, they have now expanded their offerings with new Pop Pez as well! The Star Wars Celebration 2019 exclusive Pop! PEZ pay homage to Jabba’s Palace with Salacious B. Crumb, Gamorrean Guard, and Jabba the Hutt!
Now if you want to get a bit mad, here is a little more information for you. If you aren’t attending Star Wars Celebration Chicago, or are and not lucky enough to get into the Funko booth, then prepare to scour eBay for those soon-to-be hard to find Pops that were just announced.
In previous years, the Funko exclusive merchandise was also offered as shared retailer exclusives as well. The only difference would be that the sticker on the Pop box would not say Star Wars Celebration, but something along the lines of 20– Convention Exclusive.
This year, Funko has flipped the script altogether. The shared exclusives available at various retailers will not be the blue chrome versions found at Star Wars Celebration Chicago, but gold chrome versions. I am sure this will make completists very happy. Check out the retailer shared exclusives below, and stay tuned for information on where to find these soon.
Funko was originally conceived by Mike Becker and founded by Frank Malone as a bobbleheads company in 1998 and sold in 2005 to its CEO, Brian Mariotti, who significantly expanded the firm’s licensed lines. In addition to selling millions of its Wacky Wobblers, Funko has delighted the world with a broad range of playable and collectible merchandise that includes such diverse items as plush, Pop! Vinyl figures, vehicles, mugs, water bottles, key chains, lanyards, USB drives, lamps, and headphones inspired by a vast number of films, TV shows, video games, and more.
