Recently I came across Gamestop to stock a usual range of Funko pops. There were the usual commons and episodes in the exclusive Bounty Hunter collection. But this time I ran into Iden Versio, the fan-favorite villain turned hero from the Star Wars: Battlefront II campaign. That was an easy purchase, part of the Gaming Greats collection, and thankfully Funko recently revealed four more characters along the way.
This latest round hits a few different corners of the gaming universe, starting with the aforementioned Battlefront II. This time, Funko has taken advantage of two of the game’s fortifications, the Imperial Rocket Trooper, with the more accurately updated design, in addition to the Umbra Trooper, which was added in the game’s Celebration Update.
I’m always a fan of new trooper designs, and these two are no exception, especially the vibrant colors of the Umbra trooper. Battlefront II debuted the bold orange design and it may appear in some future media now that Funko has acknowledged its existence as well.
Next up is a main character from EA’s other Star Wars outing, Jedi: Fallen Order, Merry. The Nightsister was one of Fallen Order’s most intriguing characters and will no doubt play an even bigger role in the game’s sequel now that she has joined Cal and his crew. It’s a perfect time to release this figure, and Funko has done a fantastic job with it.
Finishing the quartet is a blast to the past with The Force Unleashed’s Proxy. Now I’m a little too young to remember much about Proxy’s role in the game, but the glow-in-the-dark droid companion might just be paving the way for some more Force Unleashed pops in the future. I think you know exactly who I’m talking about.
It’s great to see Funko continue to capitalize on the wide variety of characters that Star Wars games have brought us over the years. This series first featured Hooded Yoda, the Shadow Trooper, and two Old Republic icons, Darth Revan and Malak. Then we received the Nightbrother, Clone Commando and the aforementioned Iden. Along the way, a special collectible box also popped up with a light side Revan and Bastila Shan. These newest figures will be a nice addition to the collection.
All four are available for pre-order at an increased price tag of $14.99 ahead of their November 11 release. Head over to Gamestop.com to order yours or catch up on some exclusive past offers that are still in stock.
