And so it begins! Though Funko isn’t allowed to begin selling their Star Wars Rogue One POP Vinyls just yet, the veritable onslaught of Funko Rogue One POPs can now begin with the very first five vinyl figures in the line having been revealed today: Felicity Jones’ Rebel protagonist Jyn Erso and the movie’s villain, Director Orson Krennic, are joined by Funko POP K-2SO, Captain Cassian Andor and Chirrur Imwe figures!
While we still can’t have the Star Wars Rogue One figures until Force Friday, we’re being allowed to see them a full month early this time!
One POP! Vinyl figure that thus far has only appeared on TV is Chirrut Imwe, who premiered on this morning’s episode of Good Morning America…
After being unveiled on Good Morning America this morning, Funko has also now sent out hi-res glamour shots of K-2SO and Captain Cassian Andor.
Note that K-2SO is a different height from the rest of the Rogue One POP Vinyls revealed thus far. While he doesn’t exactly tower over the other characters in the way that he should, he is at least noticeably taller. And in this Funko style, that little bit of added height is enough for me.
Meanwhile, the Funko POP Cassian Andor figure is surprisingly clothed in his Eadu attire and not his jacketed look seen prominently in the trailers. This is an interesting choice, as Hasbro chose the same outfit for their Black Series Cassian Andor figure.
The hair color of the Jyn POP seen on GMA this morning was surprisingly lighter than the color seen in the official photos. I wonder which is true?
And finally, we’ve got the primary villain of Rogue One: the Director Krennic POP. We don’t know a whole lot about Orson Krennic yet, but he sure looks stylin’! Can some Death Trooper POPs be far behind?
What do you think of the first five POP Vinyls revealed for the Funko Star Wars Rogue One figure series? Will you be picking up any of these POPs on Force Friday, and what other characters from the movie would you like to see Funko figures of?
