Star Wars: The Force Awakens - Pop! Vinyls & Wacky Wobblers by Funko


With all the excitement of #ForceFriday, fans all over the globe scramble for toys released from the upcoming film Star Wars: The Force Awakens this Friday, while I sit back at home and enjoy (with sheer "envy", of course) snaps of toy scores posted online … meanwhile, TOYSREVIL has some newsery to share instead: Pop! Vinyls and Bobbleheads from Funko!

Pop! Star Wars: The Force Awakens: "Star Wars: Episode VII Pop!s are coming to stores just in-time for The Force Awakens! Clad in distinctive metallic armor, Captain Phasma commands the First Order’s legion of troopers. Rey is a resilient survivor, a scavenger toughened by a lifetime or dealing with the cutthroats of the harsh desert world of Jakku.

A trained warrior desperate to escape his past, Finn is plunged into adventure as his conscience drives him down a heroic, but dangerous, path. Faithful First Mate and co-pilot Chewbacca has loyally stood by his captain’s side through the twisting fortunes of a galaxy in turmoil.

Equipped with sleek armor and powerful weapons, the Stormtroopers enforce the will of the First Order. Specialized Stormtroopers of the First Order, Flametroopers carry incendiary weapons that can transform any battlefield into an infernal blaze. The latest generation of cold weather assault Stormtroopers, Snowtroopers wear advanced insulated armor and helmets that reduce the glare of icy terrain.

A fastidious and worry prone protocol droid, C-3PO longs for more peaceful times,
but his continued service to Princess Leia keeps him in the frontlines of galactic conflict. BB-8, the cutest droid in the galaxy, is ready to make its debut!

A dark warrior strong with the Force, Kylo Ren commands First Order missions with a temper as fiery as his unconventional lightsaber. Poe Dameron, the greatest X-Wing pilot in the galaxy, is ready for battle."

Also available now are "Wacky Wobblers Star Wars: The Force Awakens" from Funko. No prices for items listed here tho, I'd recommend you check in with your fav retailer(s) for availability and pricing :p

I am excited today to introduce you folks reading TOYSREVIL, to Sarah Isabel Tan's NOODLES YAKUZA: DRAGONKOI Edition! Remember her Noodles collectible? (Reviewed HERE) … The ramen-loving silly panda had gone to get some inks on his "body"! Sarah shares with us;

It's a limited run of 25 pcs only but I think only 18 will be ready in time for the STGCC. Leftovers will be put up on my bigcartel store. Polystone resin with a really nice gloss finish, kinda looks like porcelain now."

Argonaut Resins' Piragua Resin Revealed!


Teased earlier, we now have snaps for the reveal of Argonaut Resins' new Piragua resin figurine debuting at the New York Comic-Con! Eric Nocella Diaz shares with us;
"Growing up in Spanish Harlem (El Barrio - uptown on the East side of Manhattan) on those hot summers one of my favorite things was getting a Puerto Rican shaved ice treat called a Piragua. They were like Spanish icies that were sold off a makeshift Mom and Pop cart with a huge block of ice and all sorts of awesome syrupy sweet flavors like cherry, grape, lime, strawberry, orange, etc."

[ More images HERE on FB ]

"The resin Piragua figurine is five inches in height and will come in sorts of crazy fun cool colors with the occasional chase figure thrown in. They will make their debut at the New York Comic Con this October at booth #402 in The Block. Information on edition sizes and pricing will be made available soon and all the amazing photos are by photographer Deborah Montanez." -added Eric Nocella Diaz.
