Funko To Release New Line Of 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Pop Figures


For those wanting to get their hands on Funko Pop figures for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the wait will soon be over.

Funko released sneak peeks of new figures from its The Force Awakens line to Instagram, with news that these figures will land in stores and online this summer.

Fans can pick and choose from a variety of characters, too, including Maz Kanata, several versions of Rey and Poe Dameron, Finn as a Stormtrooper, ME-809, General Leia, Kylo Ren, General Hux and more.

But that's not all, other characters from the Star Wars universe will also get new Pop figures soon, including two new versions of Luke Skywalker, as well as new versions of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda.

Expect to see these new figures "Pop" up at retail outlets everywhere, including Hot Topic, where some of these figures will reside as exclusives. Most of these will also become available online, but you'll have to grab them quickly: with Star Wars mania at the highest that it's been since 1977, these will probably sell out fast.

These new Pop figures join Funko's ever-expanding line of Star Wars figures, which already include Darth Vader, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Greedo, Boba Fett, C-3PO, Lando Calrissian and others. Most figures retail for around $10, although those that sell out tend to go for a little more on sites such as eBay.

Star Wars fans can also still take advantage of May the 4th sales this week, many of which last through the month. It's a great chance to get a good deal on merchandise, such as Sphero's BB-8 toy robot, and also something to bide the time until these new Funko Pop figures hit store shelves.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opened in theaters late last year and quickly became one of the biggest movies of all time. The sequel, Episode VIII, will arrive in theaters in 2017, but this year sees the release of Star Wars: Rogue One, which is an unrelated story based on events that happen between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. That film will follow the adventures of a rebel squad on a mission to steal the plans for the Death Star.
