I think it's cool/fun that they've done versions based on the vintage figures.

I was so happy to get a Red Snaggletooth pop......besides the cartoon Boba he might be the only exclusive Holiday Special pop lol.

I'd like to get Pop versions of all my favourite vintage figures

6 inch 'Glow in the Dark' Supreme Leader Snoke arrived in the mail today.

I never really thought I'd like this Pop but the detail is really cool with him sitting on his throne and the larger size is also a huge bonus. I like it more than a standing version because it was his first appearance in the franchise.

It's the SDCC exclusive version that has the Summer Exclusive sticker on it....seeing as I'm not really a 'sticker' collector kind of guy it doesn't bother me to much lol

I found a Cassian Andor Funko Pop on the Farmers Sale shelf for a huge price of $5.....had to buy him for that.

It's a great little figure with really good detailing but again I'm a bit confused by the Imperial Cog backing card, it seems whoever packs them in the factory has no idea who's a good guy and who's bad lol.

I noticed that on the Funko App. he's listed as 'Temporarily Unavailable' which has me wondering if he'll get a re-release when the Disney+ show debuts.

The Mandalorian pop arrived from Mighty Ape this morning and he's awesome.

The detail is amazing and I really like the colours. I'm so happy I pre-ordred him.

Nice (....resisting the urge to say "this is the way").

I wrote that in my post to but deleted it hahahaha

I said in my first post on Funkos that I wasn't really looking to collect them but I just noticed I've managed to collect 53 of them now (I have one wacky wobbler and one badge)

I was in Takapuna yesterday and picked up the Cantina Face-Off Funko set for a low $25.

I really like this set and think it captures the moment perfectly. There has been a huge debate about who shot first and going by the pose I think it clearly shows it was Greedo hahahaha

I got the original Porg 198 today.....he looks so tiny next to the larger 10" versions. Im so happy to see a non-specific backing card, I was half expecting to see a Mandalorian one hahahaha.

I really like collecting Porgs.....it reminds me so much of the Ewoks that I got when I was a child. Not because of the part they played in the films just because of the marketing.

I got my first 'light and sound' Funko today and it's incredible. I was really impressed by the packaging before I even saw the figure, it looks so cool in a black box with chrome trim.

Kylos helmet is awesome with the red detailing, I don't think he should have taken it off until the second or third film let alone smash it to pieces but that's a whole different post hahaha, and I would have been more than happy even if his lightsaber didn't light up and make sounds.

Overall an amazing figure that will take up a prime spot in my collection.

(I've decided on a number that I won't collect past in Funkos, I'll end up with far to many otherwise so that should make my selections a bit more thought out)
