UPDATE – A glam shot has been released and release details. Apparently he will be in store and online, and may go online on Tuesday of next week at 9pm pst.
It seems Funko Pops and Black Friday now go hand in hand thanks to multiple retailers featuring Funko related items for the year’s biggest retail shopping day. GameStop will have mystery boxes, as will Walmart, but Hot Topic is getting a completely different exclusive for collectors to stab each other over on Black Friday.
The alternative retail store will have a Collector’s Edition BB-8 that is painted gold and is housed in a domed stand. It’s not clear from the leaked picture online if the Pop itself is made our of metal, or if it’s just a paint job, but either way I know Funko Pop Nation and it will be clamoring for this fella, so good luck getting one on 11.25. Hopefully he’ll be available online too, but that information isn’t available yet.
Gold Chrome Dome BB-8 Glam Shot. It will be available both online and in store. Limited quantities online Tuesday at 9PM (PT). #starwars #bb8 #theforceawakens #hottopic #funko #pop #vinyl #funkopop #funkopops #popvinyl #funkopopvinyl #originalfunko #funkofunatic #funkomania #collectibles #toys #funkofamily #funkofinderz
