How Many Star Wars Funko Pops Are There?
The Star Wars franchise is a fan favorite for Funko Pop figurines. These unique vinyl figures not only maintain their value, but also provide profitable returns for collectors on resale.
There are so many Star Wars Funko Pops to choose from, but here are 15 of the best. From Princess Leia and her twin hair buns to the incredibly adorable Baby Yoda, these Pops are sure to impress.
1. Luke Skywalker’s Handstand With Yoda
A gargantuan task exists for any Star Wars fan to collect every Funko Pop. And that’s a task better left to those with endless bankrolls, since the price tags on these vinyl figures are quite high.
This Electrocuted Darth Vader Pop commemorates one of the best scenes in Return of the Jedi when Vader tosses Emperor Palpatine over a railing to his fiery death. The dark lord looks just as menacing here as he did in the film.
He also glows in the dark. A gold chrome finish on this figure makes it stand out among other chrome Funko Pops.
2. The Sarlacc Pit
The sarlacc is a multi-tentacled creature that inhabits the Great Pit of Carkoon on the desert planet Tatooine. This beast devours prey that fall into its gaping maw. It can hold its victims inside for long periods of time before slowly digesting them.
According to the Star Wars Encyclopedia, the sarlacc is semi-sentient and can communicate with its prey. It can also use its tentacles to grab victims from the surrounding sand and pull them into its mouth.
Funko has already released several figures related to The Mandalorian, including Pedro Pascal’s character Din Djarin and Grogu. But we’d love to see a figure that recreates Baby Yoda in his floating pod from the beginning of Season 1.
3. Darth Maul vs. Obi Wan Kenobi vs. Qui-Gon Jinn
One of the best Star Wars fights in a long time. This duel is fast, intense and has tons of character moments.
This fight takes place in Naboo’s Plasma Refinery complex, which consists of several platforms of different heights. This set design is a great way to make the lightsaber duels more interesting and exciting.
Maul starts the duel by kicking Obi-Wan, causing him to fall down all the way to a lower platform. He then moves toward a door that is protected by ray shields. Qui-Gon then tries to attack him but fails.
4. The Death Star
Funko Pops are a popular line of figurines with exaggerated features like oversized eyes. They depict characters from leading franchises and genres, such as DC Comics and Disney.
The company also produces figurines from lesser-known properties, like drag queens and food mascots. In 2018, Pops related to new theatrical releases accounted for 20 percent of sales, while TV show-related Pops accounted for 16 percent and gaming Pops accounted for 17 percent.
The company has also embraced the digital world, producing a range of non-fungible token (NFT) toys that can be traded through their online portal Droppp IO. The NFTs are branded as Funko Pops and support a variety of philanthropic organizations.
5. Rey’s Vision Of The Dark Side
While she didn’t get much screen time in The Rise of Skywalker, Rey still had her own arc. This Funko Pop pays homage to a pivotal moment from the film where she envisions her turn to the dark side while wielding a double-bladed lightsaber.
It also features one of the most menacing-looking Emperor Palpatine figures you can buy. While the climax of Return of the Jedi saw him electrocuted by Force lightning, he was certainly a worthy opponent for Rey. This one-of-a-kind figure will definitely stand out in your Funko collection.
6. The Duel Of The Fates
Despite receiving a lot less screen time than he deserved in The Force Awakens, Poe Dameron is still a fan-favorite. This Funko Pop depicts the Resistance pilot as he was in Star Wars: Droids, a show that took place before the first trilogy.
The figure shows the droid with his distinctive red arm that was explained away in a one-shot comic. It’s a great way to honor the character while also highlighting his importance in the franchise. The figure is available on eBay and is a top pick for those starting their Funko Pop collection.
7. The Battle Of Alderaan
Despite the Sith Empire’s victories, they still experienced setbacks from stubborn Republic defenders. One of those was the Core World of Alderaan, where Captain Malcom and Satele Shan fought and defeated Darth Malgus and his Imperial forces.
This Pop features the duo atop a spaceship in a moment that’s reminiscent of their battle against the Sith Emperor. It’s a great piece to have in any Star Wars collection, especially since this Pop is a limited edition and only available through Funko’s online store.
This jovial droid has that iconic red arm and is a great addition to any Star Wars collection. Plus, it’s a Comic-Con exclusive and only 480 of them were handed out, making this Funko Pop among the most valuable in the entire line.
