Going through my Funkos one thing I've noticed, and really like, is that even though all Funko faces pretty much look the same I can still see the faces of the actors who played the older and younger versions of a character......I can see Harrison Ford in the older Han but also see the difference in the Funko depicting Alden Ehrenreich and the same can be said with the Lando Pops.

(Or it could just mean I'm nuts and have been looking at to many Funkos hahahaha)

I really like the details that Funko add to some of their pops. The Padme Amidala figure has some great features especially on her gun and her hair looks great to.

I always thought that my version must have had the backing card taken out of it but after looking online I can see that they all come without one.....its weird to see and looking at her beside other pops it stands out really badly.

She has the 2018 Spring Convention Exclusive sticker on the front and I'm abit fan of those, the bright green looks great on the box and adds a bit more colour to it.

Without a doubt this Anakin pop is my absolute favourite and I really wish they did a 10" version because it's the best Star Wars pop they've ever produced (in my opinion lol)

The eyes on the figure look amazing and the detail Funko put into his glove makes it stand out really well....its kind of a waste they didn't offer him on the larger scale.

They did such a great job capturing Anakins transition into Vader even with the, pretty much, expressionless Funko face.

I like that this pop is from the first scene Rey's in but I would have to say this is one of my least favourite pops.

I just don't really like the look of her headpiece even though the torch on the side is a great little detail and her goggles look good I'm still not sold on the overall look of this figure.

It came with an First Order Cog insert as well.....now I'm sure the factory didn't care about which one the put in lol.

.....to me this is a far superior version of Rey. I really like the detailing they put into her hair and to me its a much better pose to display, the other version looks a bit awkward to me but this one looks so much better when she's display with other Pops.

She came with an First Order Cog insert as well.

My pre-ordred Child arrived today and he was absolutely worth the wait. The sculpt looks so good and the detailing on his robe is amazing.

I thought he might be a little too Funko cute but I couldn't be more wrong, it's a perfect representation of the character.

Thanks for the pictures and review. It looks great.
Just received an email an hour ago from Mighty Ape saying they have arrived, and even though I continually say 'I don't collect Funko Pops', looks like this will be another one to add to the collection. lol.

Be careful with that.....I always said the same thing about not being a Funko collector and now I have 73 of the things and more on pre-order hahaha

There are some really cool figures available though and seeing as the bulk of them are the same size they're easy to display.

Yes so true. They do look good in a larger collection. I've gathered my newly acquired 7 and added them to my daughters labyrinth /Dark Crystal collections. Looks great.

Very similar in fact to my Lego Star Wars figures. Collected 3, and they looked a bit pitiful. Now have 22....looking better. Can't wait for the 97 I have on order to arrive in the next few weeks.....if the couriers can catch up. (On that, I have a Tie Fighter sitting in Masterton that was purchased 8 days ago and hasn't moved from the NZ Courier depot there. Should have arranged for the collector there to refuel the Tie so it could fly itself to Auckland). Haha :rotfl: :cry:

I had to grab some pop protectors off Mighty Ape and have had this two pack on my wishlist for about 5wks and I'm not sure why I didn't just buy it.

They're great little figures, especially the green 'gonk' style Droid....after seeing versions of the droid in a 'New Hope' just shuffle around slowly and not doing much its great to see one ready to do battle with a saw blade arm lol.

The red Droids chain looks really cool and I like his overall look a lot. They're both a hard design for Funko to make look interesting but I think they did a great job.

Going by his picture on the box I thought the Green Droids arms may have moved up and down but that's not the case.

They're a great addition to my Solo collection and seeing as they're priced really well by Mighty Ape at the moment they're a two pack I highly recommend people to pick up.
