I got my first 3 pack and it's absolutely fantastic. I really like the look of the Imperial Soldiers in ANH so am really happy to have these three.

The Gunners helmet could do with a bit of definition on the viser but that's not a huge issue. I like the pose the Officers in, he just looks like an arrogant jerk with his arms behind his back. The Trooper is a really great looking pop and I really like his sculpt, I would for sure have purchased him if he was sold alone.

All in all I couldn't be happier with this set and they're very well priced at $37 on the EB Games site.

Two more 'The Child' pops arrived from Mighty Ape yesterday and they're great additions to my Funko collection.

I like the look they managed to pull off on the Child with the bowl.....Im always surprised how they can get expression on their pops.

The Child with the frog is so cool, it was such a funny part of the show and I'm so glad they made him in Pop form.

I was in Takapuna yesterday and picked up a pop I never thought I'd buy but I'm so glad I did.

It's a weird little figure but it actually works, I would have liked a little more sculpting or colour on the back and even maybe some lights on the side but I got him to display next to my Boba pop so he'll look awesome.

Saw the Carbonite Han recently... didn't get it at the time, but something about it is kinda fun, and I'm tempted.

I recommend that you do pick him up because it's an awesome Pop that looks way better out of the box and even though it doesn't move alot its great they tired to add the bobble head feature.....it also makes a cool set with the 'Empire' Boba

Just wanted to chime in and say I'm loving this thread Aaro. Funkos fall outside my usual collecting focus, so it's great to have the chance to vicariously enjoy someone else's collection coming together. Looking forward to seeing some photos of the whole gang together!

Cheers for that Archon.

It all started with a $5 Jyn Erso pop from the Farmers sale shelf.....I always said that would be it but I'm now owner of 88 with 6 on pre-order hahaha

I'm hoping to move into the new house soon and have them all on display (with the rest of the collection) in the office. I keep the majority of my collection in their packaging but I'm thinking it's a shame to do that with my Funkos because they look so much better free.

I couldn't leave the Warehouse without buying one Funko lol.

It's one I've been wanting for a while, ever since I received my 10 inch version, the regular pop sized Wicket.

The Ewoks are some of my favourite characters, mainly because when I was a kid ROTJ was in the theaters and they were everywhere lol, so I'm so happy to add this figure to my collection. I also have the more 'cartoony' earlier pop of Wicket but I can't choose a favourite between them because I like them for different reasons.

It's funny the smaller version has a little protective case for the spear but the 10" one doesn't.

The only other Star Wars Funko I needed from my local Warehouse was Dagobah Yoda.......luckily I drove passed so I could pop in and grab him lol.

I really like the sculpt of this figure, I have the earlier version and he was a bit too smooth looking for my liking so its great to have a more aged version in the collection.

The First Order Cog insert card gave me a good laugh as well, I'm sure the people in the Funko factory have yet to see any Star Wars films haha.
