More awesome Funko news just dropped! Today the company fully revealed two new Pop! vinyl figures that will be exclusively available at New York Comic Con next month. The first is the fan favorite "space monkey" Bistan from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The second figure is of legendary Jedi master Qui-Gon Jinn from The Phantom Menace. As of late, fans have been clamoring for more prequel characters to get the Funko treatment, and Qui-Gon is definitely a popular choice.

A new clip from season three of Star Wars Rebels was released today, which featured a reappearance of the notorious Grand Moff Tarkin. Tarkin speaks with the Governor of Lothal, named Governor Pryce (a character who was referenced back in the season one episode, Empire Day). Governor Pryce requests the presence of the 'Seventh Fleet', which she sees as a necessary force to defeat our rebel heroes. This is the first time that the 'Seventh Fleet' has been referenced in the show, which have lead many fans to surmise that the fleet is commanded by the infamous Grand Admiral Thrawn. You can reach your own conclusions by watching the clip down below:
One of the more interesting aspects of this new batch of Star Wars films is the fact that they are the first to be produced in the age of social media. Actors, directors and other creators involved in the process have made waiting for the films much more fun with their antics on Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere.
