New Star Wars Galactic Plushies

Funko has gone soft on us! Soft as in plush toys that is, so grab a comfy toy or two and come talk to us about them. Plushes, Fabrikations, and Mopeez, oh my!

New Star Wars Galactic Plushies

Postby maythefunkobewithyou » Fri Feb 24, 2017 4:05 pm

These went under the radar during Toy Fair but Luke, Yoda, Ewok & R2 are new, unannounced plushies.

R2 looks proportioned correctly. I see a lot of plush R2's that don't look quite right.

I'm definitely grabbing me a Wicket because I'm not coughing up money for a Flocked Wicket [-X \:D/ lol

I have not been a fan of the plushies, but the Wampa that came in the SB sub was so cool, mainly because he's soft and fluffy :-D I think I'll need that Wicket for the same reason, and I DEFINITELY need that Bantha, that is by far the best plushie yet!

Does anyone know where these are being placed in stores? I ran by a store at lunch that was showing 7 in stock, checked electronics and toys and nothing there. They may have been in the stockroom but I didn't have time to wrestle an employee on checking that out lol

Basically every Target around here shows several of these so I'll be taking a trip over. Of course I'll have to talk to an employee and there's a 75-25 chance they'll actually cooperate but I have hope.

OK thanks for the info! I'll report back if I find one, I've got two more stores to check that are showing them in stock. My faith in Brickseek is pretty low though, I've run across this a lot lately where something is listed as in stock in Brickseek but it's not in the store.

Went to Target that Brickseek said had 7. Read some employees the DCPI and they told they couldn't be sold until the 16th. WTH?

Interesting. We also went to a store that supposedly had 7, found nothing, had customer service check the DCPI twice and they said the number wasn't in their system at all!

Yeah I'll just wait at this point. I can't imagine these will be in high demand so there's no hurry :-) I'm just tired of Brickseek, seems like it never pans out anymore. There are stacks of Pops on my local WM shelves that show as zero in Brickseek, and there are a lot of Pops that show in Brickseek as in stock in my stores but they aren't there. It used to be somewhat reliable but these days it's gotten to be pretty worthless.

I found one! And to think...yesterday, I didn't even know this existed.
Brickseek showed my store having like 9. Didn't see them so asked an employee who found only 2 in the back. They do come in their own box because I watched him open up the one I bought. Gotta say it is awesome! Maybe a tad pricey too, but still.

Not to nit-pick on Funko, but isn't that the exact same Wampa we got in the SB box? I guess you could say it's a different product since it's in a two pack, but aren't the subscription items supposed to be exclusive?

Eerily similar but not the same. If I get that one I may not even keep the SB one. This one looks bigger.

Nice! You may have lucked out, Funko's blog says they're not out until next month which seems to jive with what Julian was told by the Target employee (that they can't sell them yet).

Yeah I was a little surprised about that too, I compared the blog pic to my SB Wampa and they look completely identical. Technically I suppose they never said the Wampa was an exclusive, but I think we assume all the major sub box contents are so it seems a little, I don't know, "inappropriate" I guess to do that.

HowardTheDuck wrote:Eerily similar but not the same.


You sure about that? Like I said I held the picture up right next to my Wampa and it looks identical to me. But I am colorblind so if there is a color difference I might not be seeing it. I suppose the size could be different but it seems unlikely given how much trouble that would be to re-pattern everything.

Compare the two again and look at the faces real close. The differences may be subtle but they are there. Much like with the SB Boba Fett and the Galactic Plush Boba.

They look identical to me. The only difference I see is the SB version has black "stripes" on the horns not visible on the other, but I suspect that just may be because of the position the first one was photographed in.

I am quoting myself since I can see how this explanation on the differences might be useful (TL;DR - Gamestop Wampa is bigger & glossier)

Not the same. Promise.


As Brian and some of you have pointed out, they are actually quite different. I figured I should clear the air, especially given the upcoming galactic plushies 2packs on the way, people might be confused (especially the Wampa).

The ones we've been getting in Smugglers Bounty thus far are called POP Plush and the ones in stores are Galactic Plushies.

Galactic plushies have a satin/glossy finish, are bigger (8 vs 6 inches) and are generally more detailed (see the belt and other details like the knee pads).
