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!
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!
- Kanan Jarrus
- Hera Syndulla
- Ezra Bridger
- Sabine Wren (Unhelmeted)
- Sabine Wren (Helmeted) — Walgreens Exclusive
- Ahsoka Tano — Hot Topic Exclusive
As 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.
With Funko being Funko, I’d be stunned if we don’t get a Sabine variant somewhere down the road with Rebels Season 3 pink hair instead of the Season 2 blue hair. That’s just too easy for Funko to skip!
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!
The 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?
