Palpatine, Ben Solo

Need more Star Wars merch in your life? For the past several months, merchandise for The Mandalorian has understandably been front and center due to the success of the Disney+ series and its second season.

But now, amidst the literal blitz of Baby Yoda/Grogu merchandise, we're learning that new Star Wars collectibles centered on one of the films are coming to our galaxy!


In a tweet from @FunkoPOPsNews , new Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Funko POPs will be available to purchase on January 19 from select sellers.

From the images in the tweet, it looks like fans are getting a new Emperor Palpatine Funko using his Force lightning, along with two separate Rey Funko POPs. One shows Rey wielding her yellow lightsaber as seen at the end of the film, and the other shows her in that pivotal moment where she uses both sabers against Palpatine.

Plus, those who love Babu Frik will appreciate the little droid smith rightly recognized in Funko POP form!

In addition, @FunkoPOPsNews released a separate tweet confirming that one more character from the final installment of the Skywalker Saga will receive their very own Funko.

The Ben Solo Funko pictured in the tweet captures that moment in the film where he responds to the Knights of Ren with the same shrug audiences have seen from his father Han Solo!


Regardless of whether you're a fan of The Rise of Skywalker or not, it's great to see we're still getting Star Wars merchandise from the films along with The Mandalorian . Also, several of these new Funkos have captured major moments from the film and for the characters they're representing, so they should definitely be of interest to collectors. Be on the lookout for these new additions on January 19.
