Hey Funko Funatics!
If yesterday was May the 4th, does that make today Revenge of the Fifth?

Okay, okay, back on topic. As many of you know, yesterday was May the 4th and that meant A LOT of really exciting Star Wars news. Since there was a flurry of announcements, we're going to recap all of the Funko Star Wars news that dropped yesterday.
Grab your juice jammers and get ready because we're making the jump into hyperspace! Let's Go!
Kicking things off... we had the release of the first episode of the new Bad Batch series on Disney Plus, a continuation of super cool characters that we were first introduced to from The Clone Wars animated series. It was an extended 75-minute episode which was WICKED and has us super hyped for the rest of the first season. With the arrival of the Bad Batch series it also meant a wave of awesome Bad Batch Pops! Let's take a closer look ...
Featuring the core cast, Hunter, Echo, Tech, Crosshair & Wrecker, these Pops look incredible. Each Pop figure is highly detailed and showcases each characters' heightened ability from the series. We have these Pops available for pre-order individually, or you can Buy The Set and Save!
There were also a few Bad Batch Exclusives that were announced yesterday as well, a Target Exclusive Omega and a pair of Amazon Exclusives with the pins:
And Nightbrother wasn't the only badass from Dathomir that was announced yesterday... that's right, Chalice Collectibles made huge waves in the Star Wars Funko community with the announcement of a dual-wielding Darth Maul Exclusive:
This. Pop. Is. SIIIICK! We don't want to get into spoiler territory, but you may just recognize one of his weapons, the Darksaber, that made an appearance in the Mandalorian series. But that's all we will say!
There were also some rumours swirling about a Star Wars Force Unleashed Starkiller Pop coming soon and a Knights of the Old Republic Darth Nihilus Glow Exclusive... but nothing concrete was announced about either of those.
P.S. if you're reading this in time, we have a special Star Wars Flash Sale happening right now on our website with huge discounts on Star Wars Pop Deluxe Exclusives, Super Sized Pops and more!

May the 4th... and may the force be with you always 🙏
