New Funko Pop! Figures Revealed Including E7 Luke Skywalker!

Posted by Paul | May 05, 2016 at 01:08 PM EST |

One May the 4th announcement we missed was the reveal of new Funko Pop! figures including the one and only Luke Skywalker from The Force Awakens. StarWars.com has the full story!

Kmart.com is now offering a bundled package of Rey (Starkiller Base) and Kylo Ren (Starkiller Base). This set would have a made much more sense if they were both made available at the same time if you ask us our opinion. Special thanks to Han Solo Mio for the alert!

As of this post only Kanan is still in stock for $21.99. Luke and Ahsoka just went out of stock, so keep checking and you might catch them! Thanks JTA readers for the alert!
