I definitely could see it happening. I'm a sucker for Stormtroopers so would love to see some of them in Rock Candy form :D

I was wondering the same thing for Pocket Pop! Keychains the other day. Star Wars has very strange licensing rules, which is why every Star Wars Pop! (even Movie Moments) has a Star Wars base as well as a bobbling head. I'm sure the licensing is what's holding Funko back, because I'm confident Star Wars Rock Candies would be a big hit! I know I'd buy some.

Good point! I hadn't even realized that, but you're spot on! I would totally buy some too though!

I agree that Padme would make a great Rock Candy. You are right, it would show off the the only good thing about her, her wardrobe lol Sorry, couldn't resist!

I might be interested in some Star Wars Rock Candy of the feminine persuasion. No slave Leia though, please. I really want to have more Rock Candy but I've acquired all that I like so far and that is just 7 figures.

Let me be as honest as possible: You had me at "Would You Want [insert literally anything here] Rock Candy to Happen?" lol

RCs are my favorite Funko line aside from Wacky Wobblers, and I was super stoked for Funko to expand the line to licenses that seemed obvious, like Star Wars, Horror, Overwatch, Dragon Ball, etc. The fact that they haven't- and that their most successful line to date has been the Comfy Princess line that was released over two years after RC's debut - kind of breaks my heart. With a new heavy emphasis on VYNL, and considering how low sales have killed Hikari and really cut Dorbz short, I'm really worried about the lifespan of RCs.

But honestly? Yeah, I think a wave of Star Wars figures would give this line a great push. Mayne even continue the "Comfy" aspect? Leia, Padme, Rey, Ahsoka, and Hera Syndulla all in cutesy casual wear? Hey, if it worked gangbusters for the Princesses...

It could def be a licensing issue. I think that is why all of their Marvel and Star Wars products have to have bobble-heads. They technically cannot produce 'action figures' of those products because other companies have those licensing rights, from what I have heard before, and Funko has the rights for bobble-heads.

Like others have said, licensing is a sticking point I bet. However Hasbro's license ends in a couple of years, so I bet when they re-up with Lucasfilm, the company might make some changes so that companies like Funko can produce these stylized figures.
