Funko announced yesterday its next installment of their Papercraft Playset series centers around Star Wars, especially highlighting Cloud City.
The set includes seven characters in Papercraft form including Boba Fett, Darth Vader, Lando, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker amongst others. The set requires no glue, scissors or other tools, but easily folds together so you can play out your favorite scenes.
Like most Funko products, it’s affordable and appropriate for any age. This would be especially good for teachers who are looking for something low cost and fun to occupy children’s time – or reward them for good behavior.
Also, with the holidays around the corner – this is great stocking fodder.
Everytime you turn around, Funko has a new wave of POP! Vinyl hitting store shelves. It’s no wonder, the company is releasing more than 50 exclusives over the next year, including a Boba Fett variant, painted to resemble his appearance in the animated Droids animated series. This is a repaint of its earlier Boba Fett bobble-head and is limited to just 300 pieces. It’s available for $15 during Celebration Europe later this month in Germany.
JediNews.com announced plans for its Caravan of the Force, a two vehicle convoy, which will travel through Europe prior to Celebration Europe – raising money for Make-A-Wish Foundation. One of the persons joining the caravan is none other than Jeremy Bulloch, who will be joined by his wife, Maureen. Bulloch will be signing autographs at their stop to a local Toys ‘R’ Us in Brent Cross, London. Starting at 7:30 p.m., Bulloch will autograph a special Black Series backing card.
