THE LAST JEDI’s Admiral Holdo is Coming to the Funko STAR WARS Galaxy

by Eric Diaz

Although we have yet to see her on screen, most of us are already in love with Laura Dern’s Resistance leader character, Vice Admiral Holdo in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. We know very little about Holdo, but we love her because A: she’s rockin’ a cool lavender wig straight out of Jem and the Holograms, and B: she’s frickin’ Laura Dern. That’s reason enough. Now the Vice Admiral, the longtime friend of Princess Leia is getting her own Funko Pop! vinyl figure, which is due to hit stores in January 2018.

Funko will have plenty of other The Last Jedi products available for fans aside from Holdo, but that doesn’t mean they’ve forgotten about the characters from the original trilogy. Coming soon are also some classic Star Wars characters turned into Mystery Minis Keychain Plushies. These Plushies are 2.5 – 3” tall, and you can clip them anywhere, or just have them hang out on your desk at work, or on your shelf at home.

Among the characters in this wave of blind boxed items are Star Wars icons from the original trilogy like Princess Leia, Yoda, Greedo, C-3PO, Darth Vader, an Ewok, Boba Fett, and a Jawa. As with all Mystery Minis, you just never know which one you will get. Luckily, there’s no Jar Jar or little kid Anakin in this wave, so you’re guaranteed to get someone cool. The classic Star Wars wave of Mystery Minis is set to hit in February.

What do you think of these latest Star Wars adorableness from Funko? Let us know down below in the comments.

Ted Cruz Senior: Obama is In The Tank for Muslims

by JM Ashby


Now we know where Senator Ted Cruz gets his charming personality from.

On Friday of last week Rafael Cruz Senior told a group of Republicans in Denver that President Obama is probably a Muslim and that Death Panels are legit.

A Cuban immigrant and a pastor, Cruz claimed that Obama has pledged to “side with the Muslims” if “the winds shift,” prompting a reaction from an audience member.

“He is Muslim,” shouted a woman.

“[Sen. John] McCain couldn’t say that because it wasn’t politically correct,” Cruz responed. “It is time we stop being politically correct!” [...]

“As a matter of fact, one of the things in Obamacare is that for the elderly, every five years you must have end-of-life counseling,” Cruz said. “Translation: suicide counseling.”

Like father, like son?
