Via comicbook.com: If you were wondering when Funko would get around to delivering Pop figures based on some of the biggest moments from Season 2 of Star Wars: The Mandalorian on Disney+, you’ll be happy to know that today is the day. Mando Monday is back, and it includes Pop figures of Boba Fett and Fennec Shand on Jabba’s throne and a Pop of zen Grogu aka Baby Yoda using the Force (with lights and sound!). Naturally, there’s also a Pop figure based on the earth shattering return of Luke Skywalker, who whisks Grogu off for Jedi training.
Other Star Wars: The Mandalorian Funko Pop figures in the common wave include The Marshal Cobb Vanth (Timothy Olyphant) with an opportunity to score an unmasked Chase, and Fennic Shand (Ming-Na Wen). Pre-orders for all of these Pop figures are live here at Entertainment Earth and they should be here at Walmart soon.
