Funko POP! Star Wars: Retro Series - Vader, Luke, C-3PO and Stormtrooper
June 3, 2021
All new Pop! STAR WARS: Retro Series Funko Pops just dropped at Target as exclusives. Featuring some of our favorites characters, this wave is an absolute must-have for all the fans of the saga, no matter which star system they live in.
From its premiere until now, Star Wars has inspired several generations, and for that reason and many more, it has earned an important place in the history of cinema.
George Lucas brought to film for the first time in a very effective way an epic adventure that combined elements of science fiction, fantasy, western, and mythology.
The designs of the ships and worlds by artists such as Ralph McQuarrie were an essential part of the success of the films, and each new installment brought new characters and scenarios to meet (except for Episode VII, which mostly recycled all of Episode IV).
The characters created by George Lucas for the Star Wars franchise now arrive with their most retro look that reminds us of a mix between comic book versions and the classic action figures of the 80s. To relive such an amazing saga, here’s the lineup for the most recently unveiled Star Wars pops:

To understand a phenomenon as big as Star Wars, it is necessary to place ourselves in the historical context in which it emerged and see how it impacted society at the time.
It was 1977, two years after the end of the Vietnam War, a time of hippies, drugs, the Cold War, and a growing concern for the planet’s future due to environmental devastation.
Science fiction movies tended to paint a depressing picture of the future. Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope arrives suddenly charged with hope in a world where morality becomes relative. A story from a galaxy far, far away returns to tell the world that it is good and evil and that there is something beyond matter (The Force) that moves and makes sense of it all.
The first generation of Star Wars fans passed that fanaticism on to their children, who in turn passed it on to their children, and their children to their children, and so on indefinitely.
Right now, a millennial father is educating his son, who still can’t read or write, in the Star Wars universe. No doubt, this is an essential factor in understanding why the fans of this story do not disappear with time, and the pessimists who said in the 1980s that it was a passing fad, had to swallow their words or roll over in their graves right now.
