Bib Fortuna and Leia as Boushh Funko POP Bobbleheads
I’ve said before that I’m not a fan of bobbleheads, but Funko’s POP! figures seem to be unstoppable. They’ve put out dozens and dozens of these for all kinds of pop culture properties, not the least of which is Star Wars. I’ve been buying the ones that could fit into a Jabba’s Palace display, but don’t really have any desire to get other characters. I picked these two up at my local Barnes & Noble, which is slowly being taken over by these figures.
Bib Fortuna is a relatively obscure character compared to the Vaders and Yodas we tend to get, and the fact that I can pick him up at the local B&N shows how extensive Funko’s line of figures is getting. I’m sure they probably decided to release him and Boushh as companions to the upcoming Walmart-exclusive Jabba set. He’s well sculpted and fits the whole Funko POP aesthetic pretty well.
I had some trouble getting the Boushh figure’s head to stay straight, and that’s a complaint I have about a lot of these figures. In her case, it’s a bit tilted to one side, but I’ve also had issues with figures appearing to look off to one side or the other. I would like these WAY more if they were solid figures without the bobblehead “feature.”
Here are all of the figures I have at the moment. I’ll have to say, they look pretty good when seen as a group. I’m looking forward to getting the larger scale Jabba so I can put together a proper throne room display. I do hope we get some more characters like the Rebo Band or maybe some other palace aliens. Lando in his skiff guard disguise would seem like a no-brainer, and I would be shocked if we didn’t get a Han in Carbonite somehow, although I’m not sure how they would incorporate the bobblehead feature in that case.
