Even though Christmas hasn’t arrived yet, Turbo Time is here.
A line of “Jingle All the Way” Funko POPs from Funko is being released; it was inspired by the holiday comedy starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sinbad, and obnoxious consumerism. That’s right, along with a few other actors from the holiday film, Turbo Man is finally getting his own Funko POP vinyl figurine. Not only that, but Funko is also reissuing the authentic Turbo Man action figure, exactly as it did in the film.
Jingle All the Way Funko POPs
The brand-new “Jingle All the Way” Funko POPs are shown here. If you want (nearly) the entire set, you can pre-order a pack of five of themat Walmart right now for $43.90. Both the standard Turbo Man and the Turbo Man action figure that he distributes at the Holiday Wintertainment Parade at the conclusion of the film are featured. You can choose Sinbad to play The Dementor, the adversary of Turbo Man.
An unique Funko POP of Turbo Man taking off with his jetpack is also available on Amazon.com. There are also Funko POPs of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sinbad dressed as civilians from the film if you’d prefer that approach. Additionally, each of them is sellable separately at Amazon and other stores.

It’s Turbo Time!
When “Jingle All the Way” was first launched, Tiger Electronics’ Turbo Man action figures were actually available for purchase. They have long been selling on the secondary market for hundreds of dollars. The official Turbo Man action figure, however, is currently being reissued by Funko as a Walmart exclusive, and it comes in the same same packaging created for the film.
Though Funko didn’t release the Turbo Man action figure until recently, it has already begun to appear on store shelves this summer:
IT S TURBO TIME! The rumors are true! @OriginalFunko is releasing the official #TurboMan action figure, just as it was released after #JingleAllTheWay hit theaters. Look around your local @Walmart to find it. Mine had four of them. pic.twitter.com/NYe51AC4UM

I was able to locate a Turbo Man action figure from my neighbourhood Walmart once people starting finding them there. They were initially going for quite a bit of money, in the $250 to $400 level, on the secondary market. The price has since dropped to little less than double the retail price of $34.99. Now that the news is official, we’re not sure if Walmart will have any fresh pre-orders or extra stock, so keep a watch online and call your local shops to check on availability.
The Funko POPs will be a welcome alternative if you are having trouble obtaining the Turbo Man action figure. Oh, and as you play with the genuine Turbo Man, you can also give your kids a game of “Jingle All the Way” cards.
