Hello everyone and welcome to another Funko Pop haul. Today post is going to be really short, but nonetheless, I am here to give you another haul update and give you the numbers for my collection.
127-28. Darkseid on Throne and Darkseid from Zack Snyder’s Justice League
129. Ashoka from Star Wars
I got these three figures from Hot Topic online. The two versions of Darkseid is based on the director’s cut version of 2017’s Justice League. I have a standard Darkseid with his weapon and prepared for battle and I have another one with him sitting on his throne looking menacingly. Darkseid appeared in Zack Snyder’s version of Justice League which was first streamed this year on March 2021 at HBO Max. This villain may resemble Thanos, but according to comic scholars, this villain doesn’t need a gauntlet to rule a galaxy. While this is the first time we ever get to see Darkseid in live action, it’s unknown if he will be back in the DC movies. It all depends on Warner Bros.
Last but not least we have Ashoka Tano from the Star Wars series. This iconic character made her first appearance in the series Star Wars: The Clone Wars in 2008 at Cartoon Network. This is before Disney bought the rights for Star Wars. Her popularity became well known for fans that she would later return in Disney’s sequel to The Clone Wars called Star Wars Rebels and then getting a live action appearance in second season of The Mandalorian. This pop figure is based on The Mandalorian show and her character is played y Rosario Dawson. Taking place after the events of the original trilogy, Ashoka becomes a vigilante of justice and is no longer a Jedi ever since she left the title in the Clone Wars. She helps Mando understand the mysterious power of The Child and even learns the name of the kid. Despite having succeeding to find a Jedi for Grogu (the Child’s real name), Ashoka refuses to take and train him because she is no longer considered a Jedi.
My October purchases was pretty short for the month. I have a total of 129 Pop Funko figures!
