Yesterday, Funko announced that not only would they be exhibiting at Star Wars Celebration 2015 in Anaheim, CA, but that they’d be releasing four Star Wars Celebration exclusive Pop! vinyl figures!!! Pretty exciting stuff, right!?! Maybe this explains why Funko didn’t release an exclusive at Emerald City Comicon this year. What I love about these exclusives is that they’re variant colorways of previously released figures as opposed to all new characters. I mean how many fans are still searching for those ECCC exclusive Han Solo and Luke Skywalker in Stormtrooper gear Pop!?!
Star Wars Celebration 2015 Exclusive Star Wars Pop! Vinyl Figure Series includes the red and silver astromech droid R2-R9, the black and gold astromech droid R2-Q5, the silver protocol droid E-3PO and a red and white Shock Trooper. Three of these figures can be purchased at Funko’s Star Wars Celebration booth #1410, while the R2-R9 figure is a Toy Tokyo retailer exclusive that can only be purchased at their SW Celebration booth.
