Giancarlo Esposito's Moff Gideon has to be one of the coolest Funko Pops from 'The Mandalorian'. We know this after the man took to Twitter to show off the toy on Star Wars Day.  While Baby Yoda was the ultimate hero and the internet breaker when the Disney+ series released, Esposito's Gideon was one of the main antagonists. 

"Look what I just received in the mail!!!! I think that’s me?!!!! And I keep hearing something is special about this date… ? #MayThe4th I think?  Happy #StarWars Day! #MayThe4thBeWithYou as you celebrate by watching Disney Galleytarry’s @themandalorian on @DisneyPlus." Esposito's tweet read. 

Fan reactions came in hordes. "That's great! But I have a better one...Greetings Giancarlo!" tweeted a fan. "I do not want to get personal — but you get more handsome each year," wrote another.

"Giancarlo might be able to get @disneyplus to release all the episodes of Star War Detours!" said another. "I can't wait to see you wield that dark saber more in Season 2!!: tweeted one of the fans.

Here was a fan who thought Gideon deserved an action figure for great acting: "If I can just say, good sir — your performance in The Mandalorian was SUPERB!! I enjoyed the whole series, and I cannot WAIT to see what your character does next! You deserve more than a Funko — you need an action figure!"

"I wonder how it feels to have something created from the character you played so well. On that note, thank you for giving us an exceptional character of Moff Gideon," a fan wrote. "Aw yay! Perfect timing! And #MayTheFourthBeWithYou, good sir!" said a fan. 

"Just rewatched the last two episodes of The Mandalorian with my girlfriend, you KILLED IT as Moff Gideon. Seeing you slice open the side of that TIE fighter with a dark saber was one of the coolest scenes in the show' observed a fan. 

'The Mandalorian' was one of the most successful 'Star Wars' content out in 2019. It was followed by the final film in the Skywalker trilogy, 'Star Wars: Rise of the Skywalker'.

'The Mandalorian' is available for streaming on Disney+.
