Funko POP Rancor set


A Previews exclusive set allows you to recreate the iconic Rancor battles in Jabba’s Palace from Return of the Jedi with the figure pack, featuring a 6” supersized Rancor, 3 ¾” Oola the Twi’lek slave dancer, and Jedi Luke Skywalker. Whether you’re a collector of Star Wars toys or Pop! figures or just a kid at heart, the POP! Star Wars: Rancor figure set is a must-have for Star Wars fans. The figure pack can be found in the January PREVIEWS catalog and is available to pre-order for $39.99 at any comic shop. How can you resist? It's a POP of the Rancor for crying out loud!

Funko Reaction Game of Thrones figures



I'll admit I was late arriving to the Game of Thrones fan base and as a result several figure lines have passed me by, so I am ecstatic over this new line. Coming in at 3.75" retro size these will be easy and cool to display. A Wall display/playset is also planned. Here's hoping there's a plan to add the dragons.
