I purchased my first Funko with a pin (Luke Skywalker, Hoth) and I'm real glad I did.

The figure itself is styled along the lines of the earlier figures with more of a 'cartoony' sculpt that's missing a lot of detailing that the more recent Funkos have.

I'm really growing fond of the Hoth figures because the boxes look great with the white and blue. The main reason for buying him was for the enamel pin that is packaged along with the pop, I brought it just because I didn't own one and needed it for my collection. It looks awesome in the box with figure as it adds to the special look Funko was going for.

I also like the much smaller 'Special Edition' sticker on the front, it's the only pop I own with that as well so it's s double bonus lol.

I had to get the vintage style Fett pop as soon as I could. I really love that Funko have released him in his original toy colours.

It's not a huge issue but I think I would have preferred him without his blaster so he was more in a standing pose like the 3.75" version. The red rocket is small but still there so that's a great touch.

I managed to pick up the Black Series Darth Revan from the Warehouse a little while back so naturally had to add the Funko version to my collection.

This is such a great looking pop, the gold accents look so good on his black clothing and helmet. I kinder wish there was a little more of his helmet visable because it would have looked even better but he still looks fantastic as is and Funko put some cool detailing on his hood. I really like the way Funko has positioned his light sabers.....it looks way better than both of them facing the same direction.

I'd been looking at the Shadow Trooper pop for a while and finally decided it was time to grab one.

I was really surprised to see he is made from see-through plastic, going by the pics online I just assumed it was moulded out of straight black plastic. I really like that's it clear, dark plastic as the black painted highlights look so much better and the blue looks so much brighter and crisper.

Funko have done a fantastic job with this figure and it's one that is definitely going to display well next to other solid plastic pops.

Queen Amidala arrived yesterday and she's a great looking Pop. The colours on the box are bright and crisp and really make the figure stand out.

The colours on this figure are a bit off but still look fantastic on display. This has been one of the harder to get figures and I'm really happy to have a version in the collection. Her head dress looks so good and the dress and hair style are amazing.

My second member of the Cantina band arrived this afternoon and it's great to finally have a friend for Nalan Cheel.

There's not alot you can really say about these pops as they don't have a whole lot of detail. The heads are quite plain except for the mouth of course and in the box he looks like he's wearing all black but his pants are a dark grey.

Even though these figures are a bit basic they remind me so much as to why Star Wars made an impact on me all those years ago so for that reason I'm so glad I own them.

The Mythrol from The Mandalorian arrived this afternoon and I have to say it absolutely blew me away.

It was never a pop I thought I'd buy but am so happy now that I did. His head sculpt is spot on for the character but it's the colours and detailing that really make him stand out. Funko did a fantastic job with this figure and he's one I can one hundred percent recommend people grab because you won't be disappointed with him.

I decided to pick up a Boba Fett Funko Pocket Pop keychain and was pleasantly surprised by the detail and overall look of the figure.

It actually does look like it's bigger pop version and am pretty sure I'll be picking up a few more.

I'd seen a few of these San Francisco Giants Special Events BB-8s and I always meant to grab one and on Monday I finally did lol.

The figure itself is a great little BB-8 with the added bonus of the baseball gear. He looks awesome on the bright orange Giants base, it really makes him stand out and way more fun than the basic black.

The box is one of the main reasons I needed this pop. The back of the box looks great with the Giants logo and sponsors. Its a fantastic addition to the collection.

This pop isn't a perfect Mandalorian Funko but its still a fantastic looking figure.

His helmet looks amazing with the added grim and dirt and the details on his clothing are top notch.....I really like the look of the Mandalorians original armour and how they added his rifle on his back, it wasn't something that needed to be there because most of the original versions of this pop are kept tucked away in their boxes and no one gets to see it because of the crazy prices people are paying for them.

The box looks great and the convention sticker on the front is clear and a great added touch.
