Funko has joined in the fan craze at Emerald City Comicon (ECCC) at the Washington State Convention Center, which started last April 7 and will conclude this Saturday, April 10. During their Panel presentation entitled ‘From Springs to Vinyl Things’, Funko shared what’s in store for fans in the very near future. A tweet from Nerd Fu showed an exclusive first look at Funko’s upcoming line of collectible bobble heads called “Wobblers” as revealed by Funko’s ace designers.

Featuring the several classic and new iconic characters from the Star Wars saga, Funko’s first batch of Wobblers includes Boba Fett, Princess Leia, Rey, and Kylo Ren (without his helmet). These new vinyl offerings from Funko have noticeable taller bodies and same Pop! styled heads, but with different eyes.
A release date has not been mentioned on these Funko! Wobblers as the final product are still subject to licensing. On a similar note from the galaxy far, far away, Funko just tweeted their latest promo of giving away an exclusive ECCC, highly collectible Green Stormtrooper Hikari figure. Only 100 of these figures are made available by Funko to celebrate this year’s Emerald City ComicCon.
