Funko is on a roll with Star Wars POP! announcements lately. Last week they announced two Wal-Mart exclusive three-packs. Today they have announced four brand new Star Wars Rebels POP!s, all featuring villains from the show. First up are the three Inquisitors–the Grand Inquisitor, Seventh Sister, and Fifth Brother. These will be exclusive to Wal-Mart and will begin hitting stores in February.
Funko also announced the theme for the upcoming Smuggler’s Bounty box. The theme is Star Wars Rebels and the POP! that will be included is Maul.
Personally for me, Funko continues to be the best company to produce Star Wars items. They are actively listening to their fans and making POP!s that we want. I was already impressed with how they were releasing a ton of characters for the new films as well as the original six, but now I am even more impressed to see that they are committed to making animated series POP!s. A couple months ago Ron and Jason interviewed Funko about what Celebration Orlando exclusives we might get, and Rebels POP!s was highly hinted as being a part of those exclusives. We’ll have to wait and see what other characters we get in the coming months!
