Star Wars is as popular as ever with its new assortment of comics, games, movies, and television series. After the fall of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, fans almost seem burnt after the controversial sequel trilogy. It was not until The Mandalorian and the final season of The Clone Wars that the love for Star Wars seemed to return, if not even bigger than before. Since then, we have received so many new collectibles that it is hard to keep up, especially if you're a Funko fan. Funko is constantly giving fans some amazing Pop creations that are perfect for any fan or collector out there, and we have to seen quite a bit of Star Wars Pops lately. Funko has been diving into the bigger world of the franchise lately, giving collectors new Pops other projects like Jedi: Fallen Order, Knights of the Old Republic, and even Republic Commando. Now it looks like we are getting a blast from the past as they unveil the new Star Wars Retro Series Pop wave.
There are four iconic Star Wars characters in this wave with Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, C-3PO, and a Stormtrooper. These Pops are all given retro-styled comic book deco paint schemes just like what fans saw in the original 1977 Marvel Comic series. Each Pop comes in a new black box similar to what collectors have seen with the Black Light Pop line. All four of these figures will be released exclusively released to Target with pre-orders already live and located here. I can expect these Pops to start hitting Target stores around their release date set for August 15, 2021. Sadly, Target is the worst store to find anything exclusive with scavengers, scrappers, scum, and villainy lurking to profit by buying the whole stock. Be sure to attempt to pre-order, and maybe you will be able to add one of these cool new Star Wars Retro Series Pop to your collection.
