Beautiful picture darthapathy, I would have bought all of those figures in a heart beat. They look great. Is the C3PO figure the exact same that they released during TFA, only now without the red arm?

Those bobbleheads are a mystery to me. Why is anyone interested in those?

The C-3PO is the same mold but now with a much better gold paint.

I happen to like the Funko POPs, within moderation. I have 30 or so decorating my office at work. I probably would not have bought them if Hasbro actually had product on the pegs that I wanted over the past year or two.

:wink:

My local Shopko broke the street date for The Last Jedi figures and they were not blocked at the register either! I was there yesterday evening and there was nothing, but I had to run in there today and happened to glance in the toy isle and they had stocked the figures on the pegs. I'm guessing they only put one case out. There were 2 Rose, 1 Hux, 2 Kylo, and 2 Rey. Unfortunately no Luke, maybe he was the "missing" 8th figure! Does anyone know what the case assortments are for sure? They also had 2 of the Boba Fett & Han 2 packs and 2 of the Rey & Praetorian Guard. They had 1 Vader & Probe Droid and 1 Rathtar & Bala Tik. I walked away with the new Rey and held off on the other stuff.

I have to say that the sculpting and paint apps on the figures that I have seen in person is far superior to what we got with the Force Awakens and much of what we got for Rogue One. The Boba Fett from the 2 pack is definitely one of the best sculpts of the character I have seen!!! I wish we could get this sculpt in SA, it's pretty fantastic!

Only Chewie considers 30 Funko pops "moderation."

Shopko paid off again tonight! My daughter and I ran it to get her some snacks for school and naturally we had to stop in the toy aisle to see if there was anything new. Low and behold there was Luke hanging at the front of the peg. The package is a little "smushed" (cant tell in the picture but the bubble has been compressed down) and I'm guessing that he had been stashed away somewhere in the store before one of the employees found him and put him back on the peg. I guess that is why I couldn't find him the other day.

Yea he does have a hook, just nothing to hang on it lol. It is a fantastic figure for 5poa though!

It sure seems like Hasbro actually has some quality control procedures in place this time around! All the figures I have seen in person have been stellar compared to what we have seen in the last few years. Hairlines are actually on the hair, there are no googly eyes, and none of the faces look like botox injections gone bad or like they are slowly melting and running down the face! I have been quite impressed so far!

I have read a number of different/conflicting reports on what the case assortments are and the number of each figure in them. The local Shopko where I found my figures at got in one case (I asked). It was a case of 8 figures: 2 Rey, 2 Kylo, 2 Rose, 1 Hux, and 1 Luke. I wonder if this has anything to do with the recent reports of distribution problems and cases being split up between stores???
