New Characters From The Mandalorian Are Getting The Funko Treatment!

Boba Fett, Frog Lady, Luke Skywalker, and more characters from The Mandalorian are getting all-new Bobbleheads from Funko

Look out Funko fans because the characters of The Mandalorian are coming! The official Star Wars homepage has revealed that the Frog Lady will be making her long-awaited debut in the line. And she’s not alone! All-new Bobbleheads of Boba Fett; Luke Skywalker; Grogu, Cobb Vanth, Fennec Shand, and the DarkTrooper are heading our way. And just when we thought it couldn’t get any better; Funko has confirmed that both Boba and Fennec will be available with the throne from Jabba’s Palace.

INTERVIEW

What’s more, starwars.com caught up with Lucasfilm’s senior manager of product design Brian Merten and Funko’s creative director Reis O’Brien to discuss the new additions.  Read on for more:

StarWars.com: First of all, thank you for making the Frog Lady figure of my dreams. For this newest wave of Funko Pops!, how did you decide which characters and moments you wanted to include from Season 2 of The Mandalorian?

Brian Merten: Thanks for taking the time to interview us! Some characters are obvious first choices that rise to the top; with others, we like to keep the offering fresh and exciting. Maybe even throwing in a little unpredictability, surprise and delight as they say. That’s where characters like the Frog Lady and the Gamorrean fighter come in. For this, we did have a little bit of conversation and easily landed on the Frog Lady. I would imagine that you’re pleased that we didn’t land on an ice spider.

FROG LADY

StarWars.com: You’re not wrong.

Reis O’Brien: Personally, when I first saw her, I immediately thought she’d make such a fun Pop! Then, when I noticed the fan reaction online, I knew right away that we had a fan-favorite on our hands. So I’d consider making her into a Pop! a classic “no brainer.” It just had to be done.

As far as the other characters are concerned, we always know who the main heroes and villains are going to be, so they get chosen automatically. But we often discuss those breakout characters that may not have the biggest role, but will resonate with fans and collectors. And in the Pop! world, characters like that make for a perfect collectible.”

NEW ADDITIONS

These new additions are exceptional and fans young and old will be pre-ordering these as soon as humanly possible. Myself included. Just the thought of adding Cobb Vanth to my collection is exciting enough. But when you add in an all-new sculpt of Boba Fett alongside Fennec Shand, my excitement gets dialed to eleven.
