If you’re still recovering from your May the Fourth hangover—and just in time for Cinco de Mayo!—take comfort in the fact that you won’t be going it alone next year. Instead, you’ll have the doting eyes of adorable Funko Pop Star Wars figurines to help get you through your day. The company announced on Wednesday that it will release 18 new Star Wars figurines in July.

For some Funko Pop fans, choosing a character is simply a matter of picking your favorite iteration. Do you want Maz Kanata with the goggles on or with them perched above her head? What about Poe Dameron or Rey? It all depends on whether you’re ready to run or head to your X-wing.

Let it be known that, as with your character preference, you also have to decide where you’ll purchase these new figurines. Game Stop, Hot Topic, and FYE all have exclusive characters, so you may want to get yourself to a mall once they’re all released.

The new series includes a robust assortment of options from The Force Awakens.

Also included are what Funko Pop calls “classics,” like Luke Skywalker and Yoda (ethereal mist not included).
