Figure Spotlight 29 – SDCC Pop! Vinyl Chewbacca

Name: Chewbacca
Series: Star Wars Pop! Vinyl
Released: July 2011

Funko’s Pop! vinyl line was one of my surprise favorite items from this year’s toy fair.  I love the simple, yet still detailed approach these figures take.  I also love at the breadth of the line with licenses from movies, comics all the way to cereal boxes.  It’s just a fun line at a great price point (just under $10 from most stores).  For this year’s SDCC, Funko offered a wide variety of exclusive Pop! vinyl figures, including this Chewbacca.

As part of the Star Wars Pop! vinyl line, Chewbacca here is a bobble head.  He shares the same general proportions as all Pop! vinyl figures with a “deformed” aesthetic but features sculpted detailing.  The mold and general coloring as the mass market release of Chewbacca, however the convention exclusive is  flocked.  I have to admit, I’m a sucker for flocked toys – and as a result this Chewie is just about perfect.  The mass market Chewbacca (available now online and in Target stores) is great – you should buy one if you like Star Wars; but the flocked version is awesome.
