Pop! Review: Disney Parks’ Jolly Roger
For today’s review, let’s take a look at the Disney Parks’ exclusive Funko Pop! Vinyl, Jolly Roger. A character from the Pirates of the Caribbean ride in both Disneyland and, more recently, Walt Disney World, this Pop! vinyl was released earlier this year in the theme parks. Additionally, a special LE 1000 Glow-in-the-Dark version of this Pop! was released at San Diego Comic Con this past summer.
For the regular version, it’s fun to see that Jolly Roger has a body, as in both versions of the ride here in the US, he is just a talking skull and crossbones on a cave wall. In this version, he is here in pirate jacket (skeleton chest exposed), pants, and shoes. He is also brandishing a pirate longsword.
A great addition to any Disney or Pirates of the Caribbean collection, I am happy that these two pieces are new additions to my personal collection. I am a big fan of the attraction, as some of you know, and the Disney Parks in general. To have a Pop! Vinyl representing this ride, and not relying on characters from the film franchise, it pretty awesome.
Were you able to pick up one of versions of Jolly Roger? Are you a fan of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride? Sound off below.
