The Mandarlorian with Grogu in his chrome Beskar armour arrived today and its such a cool figure.

I really like what Funko are doing with their pops. The sculpts are amazing and the colours are dead on. This figure looks so good in the light, the chrome really stands out. It kind of makes the non-chrome Mandarlorian figures look really dull. Any time Funko adds a small Grogu with Din is a fantastic addition.

The pin is a great added bonus.

The next box to arrive would have to be the absolute best Funko box I've received.

I'm so happy I ordered these through Mighty Ape.

The first figure I grabbed out was the 'Glow in the Dark' Mandalorian. I really think the blue looks awesome, it shows off the great sculpting Funko put into this figure.

And once the lights go down it looks even better, I've got a couple of other glowing pops but none of them have a cool glowing base.

Next out of the box was the Unmasked Boba Fett, I love the sculpting on the armour and the colours look perfect. I really like the helmet Funko have released for their Fett pops but I had to grab this scarred version.

I like the added addition of the black robes and his jet pack is incredible, his shoulder guards and gauntlets look perfect.

The 4th and last pop to arrive from Mighty Ape is my pick of the bunch.

Like I said earlier, I really like the latest helmet Funko use for Boba but I must admit I had my fingers crossed that I received the Cobb Vanth chase version and I was lucky enough to get just that.

Cobb looks amazing in Fetts armour and is a perfect representation of his appearance in the show. I couldn't have asked for better detailing and I honestly can't fault this pop in anyway.

I really liked the design and look of the Dark Troopers in the Mandalorian and had no second thoughts about buying them in Funko form.

This new one arrived depicting the moment poor old Grogu was stolen from Din, it was a pretty crappy moment in the show but I was looking forward to a p*ssed off Mandalorian getting him back.

Much like the first version of this pop, I would have liked a bit more contrast in the figure just so some of the great detailing came through a lot better, also the glow feature is a bit weak on mine (doesn't show up at all) but it doesn't take anything away from how much I like him. Little Grogu looks fantastic as usual. :D

I wasn't going to buy another Valentines Day Funko (I got Yoda last year) but being a sucker for Mandarlorian Helmets I ended up grabbing this Mando pop.

Out of the box he looks great, there's a good mix of different shades of pink to let the details stand out. I really like how he's holding a card for Grogu to.....all in all its not my favourite pop but I no way is it my least favourite.

Two new Funkos arrived from Mighty Ape today and I'm so happy to have them.

I really like the different styles of Mandarlorian helmets so am always going to grab a Mandarlorian pop because the helmet is the main focus.

The muted colours of the Death Watch Mandarlorian is awesome, the light blue stands out well and really complements the darker detailing. I do prefer the helmets with the range finder so am happy this figure has one.

The second figure is the chrome version of Boba from The Book of Boba Fett.

I have the earlier green chrome Boba and the red chrome Mandarlorian pop so picking this one up was an easy decision. Like the previous chrome Funkos the details stand out really well, the light bounces off the bright chrome so they look awesome on display.

The box has great added detailing with Tatooine featured in the borders of the front window. It does has The Book of Boba Fett printed on the back but I would have liked yo have had it on the front for display purposes.

Three more pops arrived from Mighty Ape today and two of them are amazing and ones a bit of a let down except for one great feature.

I'll start off with the underwhelming figure, Luke Skywalker in his robe from The Mandalorian. I held off from buying this funko as I thought it looked a bit dull in the pictures and once I got him in hand I was right. The black robes are dull with not a lot of difference in the detailing to make the different parts if him stand out.

The one thing that really lifts the pop is his glow in the dark light sabre. It's glows really brightly and if it didn't have this feature it'd just be a so so kind on Funko.
