    Why are the Star Wars Funko POP all Bobbleheads

    I have noticed that all the Star Wars POP figures by Funko are bobble heads, however the last of the line are figures. I hate bobble heads and would love the Star Wars line if it was made like the rest of the figures.

    Any idea why its not?

    That's not a toy, that's Kenner!

    Nope, they are all FIGURES, ONLY the Star Wars line is bobble heads. Check the boxes
    Here a pic of the Marvel set, they are FIGURES not bobble heads, again for some reason ONLY Star Wars are.



    and here are Star Trek ones, notice the box, they are not bobble heads



    I do think at one time all the older POP guys might have been babble heads but only star wars are now days

    Apparently it's a licensing issue. Star Wars have to be bobbleheads because Funko doesn't have the license for straight figures for that property. I guess they don't have to worry about that for some of the other lines.

    yeah that would be about right.

    It appears that the Funko Pop Star Wars figs are still bobble-heads. I was able to purchase the 2014 Convention Luke Skywalker (Hoth) w/Wampa (includes severed arm) set this morning at Barnes & Noble.

    There is no difference to the SDCC exclusive set except for a different sticker on the front.

    The Wampa head definitely would bobble a lot, based on how big it is. I love it.
