This is a big week for Funko fans, as we start to get their SDCC 2017 exclusives announced. They always have tons and tons coming, and today we have a look at the first announcement: Star Wars. there is four total, one is a doozy, one is a well-requested figure they better make a shared exclusive, one is another trooper, and the last one is one that I must own because it is representing the greatest moment in Star Wars.
The Snoke is a neat one, its cool that we collectors will get a version of him on the throne since he probably won’t be in The Last Jedi. Troopers don’t do much for me, but that Bohdi is awesome. They said on their blog that he would be shared, as most of their exclusives will be, with other retailers. He is a very requested character, so for their sakes I hope that is true. That Leia and R2 pack is a must buy for me. Last years Hasbro Exclusive Obi-Wan Kenobi that came with the holo Leia that recites her speech from A New Hope is one of my favorite pieces of all time, and I love when companies immortalize screen moments like this.
General Kenobi. Years ago, you served my father in the Clone Wars. Now he begs you to help him in his struggle against the Empire. I regret that I am unable to present my father’s request to you in person, but my ship has fallen under attack and I’m afraid my mission to bring you to Alderaan has failed. I have placed information vital to the survival of the Rebellion into the memory systems of this R2 unit. My father will know how to retrieve it. You must see this droid safely delivered to him on Alderaan. This is our most desperate hour. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope.
