Funko Pop vs Funko Bobble Heads

I would tell you to consider whether you want a standard Pop figure or a bobblehead Pop figure, but, funny thing… There is actually a licensing issue in the mix. Funko Pop can’t make standard figures of Star Wars characters that aren’t bobbleheads.

Hasbro owns the legal rights to make all action figures associated with LucasFilm. Because of this, Funko Pop can make Star Wars bobbleheads because they’re considered toys, but they can’t make anything in the realm of “action figures”.

What to Look for in Star Wars Funko Pops

Ready for a quick crash course on all things Funko Pop? When buying Star Wars Pops online, it’s important to know the average price ranges for figures. You’ll want to make sure you know how to spot a faker, too. In about 2 minutes, you’ll be a certified expert.

Price

Most standard Funko Pops can be bought from $11-$16 if they are still in stock online and in retail stores. When this changes, the price goes up. Some larger Star Wars Funkos, like Deluxe Funko Pops, can go for over $30.

Authenticity

There are definitely fakers out there. To make sure you’re getting an official Funko Pop, you can:

  • Check the including packaging to make sure all the details are correct
  • Make sure the figure has clear, crisp lines in the picture if buying online
  • Buy from Funko Pop’s website or from an official seller on another platform
  • Check the product description to see if the item claims to be officially licensed

Bobble Head or No Bobble Head?

star wars

Again, with Star Wars, you’re getting bobbleheads. All-Star Wars Funko Pops are bobbleheads. Thanks, Hasbro.

Removable Stand

Here’s another fun fact about Star Wars Funko Pops: every single one of their standard bobblehead figures comes with a stand. These stands aren’t meant to be removable in most cases. You can actually damage the figure by trying to remove the stand if it isn’t removable.

Accessories

Funko sells some Star Wars accessories, too! Their newest accessory is a luggage tag that features Grogu in a little backpack. It’s adorable. They have a collection of Star Wars pins, too.

If you want to buy accessories to display your Funko pops, Funko sells box protectors, display cases, and podiums. Their premium box protectors even prevent your Pops from becoming damaged by UV rays.

Rarity

There’s a hefty price tag on rare Star Wars Funko Pops. Think hundreds or even thousands of dollars, and you’re in the right range. Limited edition Funko Pops go for lots of money, and so do Funko Pops that have been discontinued.
