Ever since the reign of Funko began, Star Wars has been a large part of their line of Pop! figures. Funko has put out merchandise that spans nearly every era in Star Wars including characters from the original trilogy, the sequel trilogy, the Rebels animated series, etc. However, one era of the Star Wars universe has been missing all this time. That is none other than The Clone Wars animated series.
On June 19, 2018, Funko announced five new Pop figures featuring only characters from The Clone Wars: Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, and another appearance of Ahsoka, which is exclusive to Hot Topic, where the original Ahsoka Pop figure, featuring her Rebels appearance, is also exclusive to. Hot Topic is also where large amounts of Ahsoka’s actress, Ashley Eckstein’s clothing line, Her Universe, is sold.
I really hope to see more Clone Wars characters in the Funko Pop form, like Padmé Amidala, who has many appearances that could be featured in the toy line, or even villains, like Count Dooku, or Asajj Ventress. I am really looking forward to possibly adding characters from The Clone Wars to my Star Wars Funko Pop collection!
