The other day, I stumbled into Gamestop to conduct a usual sweep of Funko pops in stock. There was the usual commons and installments in the exclusive Bounty Hunter collection. Yet, this time, I came across Iden Versio, the fan-favorite villain turned hero from the Star Wars: Battlefront II campaign. That was an easy purchase, part of the Gaming Greats collection, and luckily, Funko recently unveiled four more characters on the way.

This latest round touches on a few different corners of the gaming universe, beginning with the aforementioned Battlefront II. This time, Funko has tapped into two of the game’s reinforcements, the Imperial Rocket Trooper, with the more accurate updated design, alongside the Umbra Trooper, which was added in the game’s Celebration Update.

I am always a fan of new trooper designs, and these two are no exception, specifically the vibrant colors of the Umbra trooper. Battlefront II debuted the bold orange design, and it may show up in some future media now that Funko has acknowledged its existence too.

Next up is a key character from EA’s other Star Wars outing, Jedi: Fallen Order, Merrin. The Nightsister was one of Fallen Order’s most intriguing characters, and will undoubtedly play an even bigger role in the game’s sequel now that she has joined Cal and his crew. It’s a perfect time to release this figure, and Funko did a fantastic job with it.

Rounding out the quartet is a blast to the past with The Force Unleashed’s Proxy. Now I’m a bit too young to remember much about Proxy’s role in the game, but the glow-in-the-dark droid companion may just pave the way for some more Force Unleashed pops in the future. I think you know just who I am referring to.

It is great to see Funko continue to tap into the wide variety of characters Star Wars games have brought us over the years. This series first delivered Hooded Yoda, the Shadow Trooper and two Old Republic icons, Darth Revan and Malak. Then, we received the Nightbrother, Clone Commando and the aforementioned Iden. A special collector’s box with a light-side Revan and Bastila Shan showed up along the way, too. These latest figures will make a fine addition to the collection.

All four are available for pre-order at a bumped up price tag of $14.99 before their November 11 release. Head over to to order yours or catch up on some past exclusives that are still in-stock.
