If you like to collect some of Funko’s endless array of POP! Vinyls, then you might know that there is an exclusive Indiana Jones figure available at Disney Parks stores (at the actual park) while supplies last. It’s modeled after his appearance in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom with the figure holding one of the Sankara stones and a machete. The only problem is it’s impossible to find, and sales online have seen the figure selling for upwards of $80.

While the excitement doesn’t seem to be as high for Rogue Friday as it was for Force Friday last year, that’s to be expected since The Force Awakens had more excitement surrounding it as the first live-action Star Wars movie in 10 years.

Another one was shown on Rogue Friday with Walmart debuting an exclusive 6-inch Black Series figure for the Scarif Stormtrooper or Shoretrooper as they’ve also been called. To show off the exclusive action figure, they’ve released a quick, action-packed cinematic advertisement showing a squad of these Imperial troops in action. Read More »
