Funko dropped its exclusive collection of Star Wars Celebration (SWC) Pop figures yesterday, and even if you’re not at the convention for fans of a galaxy far, far away, you can still get your hands on these metallic masterpieces.
In addition to the blue chrome exclusives available only at SWC in Chicago, Funko also launches a selection of gold metallic exclusive figures at popular retailers.
Fans of the galactic saga can now bring home FYE’s Gold Chrome Chewbacca, Box Lunch’s Gold Chrome Boba Fett and Hot Topic’s Gold Chrome Princess Leia figure. The Gold Chrome Yoda at GameStop, the Gold Chrome Stormtrooper at Target, and the Darth Maul figure at Walgreens are also available now. The remainder of the lineup, including Amazon’s Gold Chrome Darth Vader, will be available throughout the day.
Star Wars Celebration attendees, whom we are all jealous of right now, have the chance to buy a special edition Blue Chrome Darth Vader, Yoda, Stormtrooper, Princess Leia, and Boba Fett Pop figures. However, only 2,500 figures come in this finish, so (safely) run over to the Funko booth before it’s too late. And prepare to wait in epic lines.
Star Wars Celebration started yesterday in Chicago and runs until Monday, April 15. If you missed out on tickets for the weekend, you still have a chance to pick up adult and kids tickets for the final day of the convention. Adult tickets cost $75 online and $85 at the door while kids’ tickets are $35 online and $45 at the door. But, these Pop! vinyls will surely be gone by then.
The five-day celebration is packed with major announcements, celebrity meet-and-greets, exclusive merchandise, panels, exhibits, screenings, and fan-inspired activities.
