“Star Wars” has always been uniquely toyetic. A character doesn’t even have to be named in the movies, or have any dialogue, for them to get an action figure. Combine that with Funko’s prolific line of vinyl figures, and there are potentially hundreds of different Star Wars figures to collect. And if you prefer your collectibles to be soft instead of vinyl, Funko’s got you covered with their new line of Galactic “Star Wars” plushies.
Joining their already popular line of superhero plushies, these new collectibles are around 7 or 8 inches tall and range from soft (like C-3PO) to really soft (like Chewbacca). Available now, these initial sets include characters from the original trilogy and “The Force Awakens.” The first batch includes Boba Fett, Darth Vader, Princess Leia (with the cinnamon bun hairstyle), and Han Solo, plus the aforementioned C-3PO and Chewbacca.
The second set brings you a First Order Stormtrooper, Kylo Ren, Rey (in her scavenger gear), Finn, Maz Kanata, and BB-8.
Looking at this list, it feels almost inevitable that Funko will be producing more of these in the future. There are no characters from the prequels for example, and someone out there must want a plushie of Jar Jar Binks. There are also no figures representing the most recent (and very successful) “Star Wars” film “Rogue One”, or the popular “Rebels” cartoon series. Luke Skywalker doesn’t even have a figure in this initial set, and he’s the main character of most of the movies.
So while you count down the days until the first Episode VIII announcement, you have a whole new line of Funko toys to obsess over.
