Funko Star Wars Rebels POP Vinyls Up for Order & Hi-Res Photos!

Last week, Funko made the flowers of love blossom in the hearts of Star Wars animated series fans when the Walgreens exclusive Helmeted Sabine and Hot Topic exclusive Ahsoka POPs were revealed. And today, the other shoe has dropped and the rest of the crew of the Ghost has arrived: the Funko Rebels POP Vinyls figures have now been fully revealed and are up for order, including Chopper, Ezra, Hera and Kanan Jarrus!

Star Wars Rebels is a show that’s had its ups and downs in its first two seasons–but with season three now begun, is starting to really catch on and find a loyal base of fans (sort of like the crew found a Rebel base in season 2!).

And now that the Star Wars Rebels main characters have had a chance to become well-known, the time has come for Spectre-1 through Specter-6 to be immortalized in the most honorable way possible: with their own Rebels Funko POP Vinyls figures!

funko-star-wars-rebels-zeb-pop-vinyl-figureThe first wave (and only wave, as far as we know right now) of Funko Rebels POP Vinyl figures will contain eight figures:

  • Kanan Jarrus
  • Hera Syndulla
  • Ezra Bridger
  • Zeb
  • Chopper
  • Sabine Wren (Unhelmeted)
  • Sabine Wren (Helmeted) — Walgreens Exclusive
  • Ahsoka Tano — Hot Topic Exclusive

funko-chopper-pop-vinyls-rebels-figureAs you can see from the official images, these POP Vinyls are based off of the characters’ appearances in Rebels Season 2 (as evident from Sabine’s blue hair). That’s a good choice, as the initial looks for these characters are the ones likely to be the most iconic.

funko-rebels-hera-pop-vinyls-figureHera, Chopper and (to some extent) Zeb look pretty much the same throughout the first three seasons of Rebels, but I wouldn’t mind seeing Season 3 Kanan and Ezra variants someday.

I was shocked when I first heard that the Funko Ahsoka POP Vinyl was going to be a Hot Topic exclusive, as Ahsoka Tano is arguably the absolute most popular character ever created for a Star Wars animated series (both Clone Wars and Rebels).

I hope that Hot Topic has ordered sufficient quantities of the Ahsoka POP Vinyls figure, because she is going to be a hot seller when she hits their retail stores this fall. Be fast on this Togruta if you want one, Star Wars collectors!

funko-ezra-pop-vinyls-figureThe Funko POP Vinyls Rebels figures are now up for order, and are expected to arrive before the end of the year. If you want to be guaranteed a set before the holidays (as presents for others or yourself), I’d lock in a cancellable pre-order now–I have a suspicion that these much-awaited POPs are going to be tough to find in stores until after the new year.

What do you think of the first wave of Star Wars Rebels POP! Vinyl figures? Are you satisfied with the looks Funko chose for the characters, and which other characters (if any) would you like to see added to this sub-line in the future?
