Had a few new pops arrive this morning......

I needed both C2-B5 and the bald Saw Gererra for my Rogue One collection.

C2 is a great little pop, I really like how they're still 'bobble heads' like the rest of the SW Funko range. The sculpt on the Astromech Droids is really well done in this line.

Saw Gererra is a fantastic figure in both of the Funko versions I own.

The detailing on his suit has to be one of the absolute best I've seen in my Funko collection. They could has cut corners with his mechanical foot but even that looks great. His cape looks so good as it doesn't hide the detailing on his back.

I also had two new Mandalorian pops arrive from Mighty Ape.....

The first version is probably from around the first episode as he still has his cobbled together armour and muddy helmet. I really like this figure because to me the armour fits in with the feel of who the Mandalorian is rather than the Beskar pieces.

The second Mandalorian pop to show up is the chrome version of a Funko I purchased earlier in the year.

What can I say about this Pop other than its amazing.....his chrome helmet adds so much more to the look of this figure and I'm so happy I decided to buy him.

I did notice that Funko have removed the black detailing from the helmets ear pieces and I do wish they went along the same lines as the Saw Gererra pop by having his cape but still show some more of the figure than covering him up.

But they're tiny criticisms as overall I couldn't be happier.

This has turned into a Funko day :D

I went home to find Funko number 5 on my doorstep and its one I've wanted for a long time.....the Chase version Porg.

He's going to look so cool next to my larger sized Porgs because he has a similar look on his face.

And out of my current collection of Funkos he's the only one with the Chase sticker which I like.

I finally got Galen Erso for my Rogue One collection. I've wanted this Pop for a while now but never seemed to track him down.....the First Order Cog insert card is another head scratcher hahaha.

I've noticed on my Funko app. that he's pop number 80....its getting close to the number of Star Wars Funkos I said I'd stop at and with 6 on pre-order I have to be really selective on the next few I buy.

My 40th Anniversary ESB R2-D2 arrived today and he totally exceeded my expectations.

The muddy weathering looks so good and he really looks like he just got spat out of the Dagobah swamp. The 'night sky' insert card is such an improvement on the random ones Funko usually pack their pops with.....actually I can't fault the packaging in anyway.

I really like the light and sound Pops and this ESB Darth Vader is incredible.....I would have liked it even with the lightsaber, light up chest, and noises but the carbon freezing chamber floor just puts it over the top.

Seeing as I have a Vader ESB figure I thought I'd better pick up a 40th Anniversary Luke and to me the best one is this Jedi training Luke/Yoda pop.

I really like the base not being just the usual plain black one as the sculpt and colour of this version really adds to the great look of Luke and Yoda.

I'm not sure why it took me so long to get a Boba Fett Funko pop in his original costume but I finally got him today.

I like the added detail on this figure but wonder why they put yellow in the arrows on his helmet but didn't highlight his famous dent.

I know putting the plainer ESB jetpack on was easier than the more colourful ROTJ but I think I'd prefer the Jedi version. All that said though he's a figure I should have gotten a while ago because he looks awesome on display.
