Funko Pop figures have gone from humble origins to become some of the most collectable items of all time. If you don't already know, they're small vinyl figures that recreate iconic pop culture icons and characters. From E.T. to Elvis, there's a hugely varied range of Funko Pop figures on offer and, of course, the Star Wars franchise is no exception.
There are now enough Star Wars Funko Pops to fill an entire galaxy, so finding the truly great ones can be a monumental task. To help you decide, we're here with a buying guide and a list of the 10 best figures to buy at Amazon UK, including Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker, Grogu (AKA Baby Yoda) and The Mandalorian. Whether you're buying a treat for yourself or a gift for a friend or relative, check out our recommendations below!
One thing can be said for sure about die-hard Star Wars fans — they're just as passionate about what they don't like as what they do like regarding the franchise. If you're shopping for yourself then you'll probably know exactly which character you're looking for. However, if you're buying a gift for someone then it'd be easy to assume that anything Star Wars-related is fair game, but sadly that's not the case!
While every fan loves the original trilogy, opinions vary when it comes to the prequels, sequels and TV series, with recent films like The Last Jedi proving especially divisive. So, to avoid purchasing a present that the recipient will only pretend to like, you'll need to establish which trilogy, show or character they love most. That should be easy enough if you just mention Star Wars — we're sure they'll want to chat about it!
Within the category of Star Wars Funko Pops, there are different ranges with specific themes. For example, the 'Duel of the Fates' range consists of three figures: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Qui-Gon Jinn and Darth Maul. These Funko Pops slot together, recreating The Phantom Menace's epic final battle scene. The 'Power of the Galaxy' range, on the other hand, features iconic female characters such as Padmé Amidala and Sabine Wren.
While each Funko Pop is impressive on its own, several figures from the same range have an impact when placed together and create a more cohesive display. If you have the budget, purchasing several figures from the same range will show a friend or relative that you put extra thought into their gift.
All Funko Pop figures are special in their own way, but some are extra unique. From glow-in-the-dark paint and parts made of chrome metal to free gifts, a whole bunch of Star Wars characters come with additional features that make them that little bit cooler — and it's usually at no extra cost!
The frustrating thing about shopping online for figures is that the extra features aren't always obvious. You'll often get no more than a small sticker in the product image or a brief mention in the product description. Luckily, we've done the research for you and will mention any extras in the specification table below each product review.
Some Funko Pop figures are more desirable to collectors than others, and there are several reasons why this might be the case. For example, they might be an Amazon or Box Warehouse exclusive, or a chase pop — a rare variation of a particular figure that you have a 1 in 6 chance of receiving.
Some of the most collectable Funko Pops are limited-run figures created for special events such as Pride and the Galactic Convention — a celebration of all things Star Wars held in Chicago every year. While you might be able to track these rare figures down on eBay, the easiest method of securing one for yourself is to nab it while it's still available for general sale at Amazon.
