Maybe you’ve started collecting funko pops, or you’ve been collecting them for many years. Either way, vaulted 10-inch funko pops are in high demand these days.
We wanted to share the most popular 10-inch pops and which ones are worth adding to your collection.
For most collectors, there’s nothing more unsatisfying than when a Funko Pop is vaulted. Unless you want to sell funko pops, it’s a big payday. However, it’s also exciting to have these types of pops in your collection because you can say it’s rare since only a few have them.
Most Popular 10 Inch Vaulted Funko IN High-Demand
Before we dig into that, it’s worth noting 10-inch Funko Pops are super popular these days. Everyone has a hard time finding them, which means you can pretty much guarantee they’ll hit the store for a high-price. We’re talking $60+.
That means if you can get your hand on one of these vaulted pop vinyl figures, you’ll have a high-profit potential on your hands.
That’s right; these vaulted figures are the Funko’s are no longer produced, that you can no longer buy in regular storefronts, and that passionate fans will be keeping close at hand.
Let’s take a peek at which pops you should keep an eye out for in the marketplace that are not currently vaulted and then we will look at vaulted 10 inch pops!
1. Superman Metallic 10″ – #159 (not vaulted)
Everyone’s going crazy for the Superman Metallic 10″ right now. And who wouldn’t? A 10″ Man of Steel? Yes, please!
We’re confident when we say there isn’t a person on the planet who hasn’t heard of this hero. But did you know Superman doesn’t have any powers?
Wait, hear us out.
Superman isn’t the result of magic or a freak accident. He grew up on another planet: Krypton.
On Krypton, gravity was much stronger than Earth (before Krypton became destroyed), so Superman inhibits Earth’s super strength. That doesn’t quite explain Superman’s laser eyes, but it certainly explains why he can fly!
Also, did you know Superman’s Krypton name is Kal-El? Pretty cool.
“Look, up in the sky, it’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Superman!”
2. Baby Yoda (The Child) 10″ – #369 (not Vaulted)
Next: Baby Yoda from the ever-popular Mandalorian television series on Disney+.
Though, of course, though Baby Yoda’s very strong in the force, he isn’t Yoda! We won’t mention his real name here because of spoilers, but if you’re not sure who he is, check out The Mandalorian on Disney +.
But what are some interesting facts about this adorable little critter?
The first: he’s not that young. Because Yoda’s species live for beyond 900 years, at 50 years of age, Baby Yoda is just that: a baby!
What’s more, this isn’t the second time we’ve seen a Yoda species. It’s the third time! If you look carefully in Star Wars: Episode I, you can spot Master Yaddle in the Jedi council. Cool, huh?
“Such a large bounty for such a small package.” — The Client
(Not too dissimilar to selling this vaulted Funko!)
3. Boba Fett 10″ – #367 (Not Vaulted)
Next up is Boba Fett, the famous bounty hunter who survived the deadly Sarlacc pit. Let us be the first to tell you, that’s no easy feat!
But did you know, in legends, he fell into the pit twice! How shameful is that?
But let’s come away from Pop Figures briefly. Did you know there’s a Boba Fett action figure so rare it is known as the holy grail of Star Wars figures?
If you have one in your collection, expect to make up to $225,000!
This vaulted Boba Fett “Funko Pop won’t fetch quite as much, but if you have it in your collection, hold onto it!
Here’s one more interesting fact: Boba Fett is most well known for his appearance in Empire Strikes Back, but did you know he only has four lines in it? I bet you remember them all, though. Here’s one for the road:
“He’s no good to me dead.” – Boba Fett.
4. Deadpool 10″ – #543 (Not Vaulted)
Everyone knows Deadpool! If not for his fantastic appearance across the Marvel universe, the hilarious tie-in Fox films, with the last one released in 2018.
However, he’s a lot older than you might think! Did you know Deadpool first appeared in 1991, in #98 of The New Mutants?
Then his first film appearance was in 2009, in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. It wasn’t well received. One massive downside of it — the character designers sewed his mouth shut! So there were no awesome quotes like this:
“I want to die a natural death at the age of 102 – like the city of Detroit.” — Deadpool.
Now, without further ado, here is our top 10 Vaulted Funko Pop list.
Top 10 Inch Vaulted Funko Pops in High-Demand
1. Indiana Jones 10″ – #885 (Vaulted)
Can you read the above Pop’s name without playing the Indiana Jones theme tune in your head? We can’t! Have a listen while you read this next section:
But, did you know the films did more than the blockbuster market? Petra — where The Last Crusade’s scenes — had a massive influx of tourism following the film.
Now that takes skill!
What’s more, Sean Connery was offered a cameo in The Crystal Skull — but he turned it down. We’re not entirely sure if we blame him here.
Nonetheless, here’s hoping for another Indian Jones film in the future!
“Don’t call me Junior!” — Indiana Jones.
2. Bulbasaur NYCC Debut Target Exclusive –#454 (Vaulted)
The first Pokemon of the original run, and one of the most memorable Pokemon in the entire world, that even non-fans will have heard of — just like Pikachu!
But did you know? Bulbasaur isn’t just a grass-type Pokemon. He’s poison too! And for any of the video game fans out there, he evolves into Ivysaur at level 16!
(But we wouldn’t blame you if you stuck with Bulbasaur through the whole game!) Here’s his dex entry from Pokemon Red & Blue:
“A strange seed was planted on its back at birth. The plant sprouts and grows with this Pokémon.”
We wonder who planted it!
“Saur, saur, Bulbasaur!”
3. Tyrannosaurus Rex Target Exclusive – #591 (Vaulted)
Ah, the T-Rex. One of nature’s most refined predators, just as extinct as this Funko. However, this isn’t any T-Rex!
A Jurassic Park Tyrannosaurus Rex, to be more exact!
We can’t entirely quote this glorious beast, but we can give you a taste of that horrifying roar that made the film series famous:
But what facts are there about this fantastic beast? You can check out a whole load on National Geographic Kids, but here are two we liked:
- “Equipped with a set of 50-60 banana-sized teeth, these expert eaters could rip almost 100kg of flesh off their victims in a single chomp!”
- “The name Tyrannosaurus Rex comes from Greek and Latin words meaning ‘Tyrant Lizard King.'”
We especially like fact number 2 because Tyrant Lizard King sounds like its own unique character we’d see as a Pop Funko! Who knows, maybe it’ll be a future villain in a Marvel comic?
4. Dobby Target Exclusive –#63 (Vaulted)
Dobby, Dobby, Dobby. A funko pop you’ve seen before on our funko blog, if you read our article 12 Rare Vaulted Harry Potter Funko Pops for Collectors, where a similar Dobby figure appears!
We gave some excellent insights into Dobby on that list, so here’s a couple more to whet your appetite!
Dobby was close to a house-elf called Winky, who suffered from severe depression. Dobby got Winky a job in Hogwarts and helped improve Winky’s life that little bit.
What a sweet guy, huh?
And we know just how loyal he was to Harry Potter, too — even helping free Harry from Bellatrix Lestrange.
If it weren’t for this guy, the Harry Potter series would have ended very differently!
“Dobby is a free elf!” — Dobby.
5. Toothless Target Exclusive –#686 (Vaulted)
How To Train Your Dragon is one of our most favorite films, and Toothless one of our most favorite characters.
Don’t you think toothless looks like a fat black cat?
But he is more than just a cute critter. Toothless is a Night Fury, one of the rarest, most feared dragons to ever live!
Who’d have thought he’d end up being such friends with Hiccup?
Toothless doesn’t just exist in the film universe, too! Netflix users can enjoy tons of TV shows with our fan-favorite (if you don’t mind a slight step down in animation quality).
Check out: Dragons: Race to the Edge.
“Listen to the wisdom of the toothless ones.”
6. Stay Puft GameStop Exclusive – #749 (Vaulted)
Alright, this is another musical queue!
Also known as The Marshmallow Man, this is the perfect 10″ Funko Pop because he’s so prominent in Ghostbuster films!
But what can be said about The Marshmallow Man?
Did you know the three Marshmallow Man suits during the filming of the original Ghostbusters film cost $20,000 each!
Maybe that cost is as much as this vaulted Funko Pop might be worth one-day. You never know!
And like that high price, The Marshmallow Man is a significant character!
Just how big is The Marshmallow Man? He stands at 112.5 feet!
“I tried to think of the most harmless thing. Something I loved from my childhood. Something that could never ever possibly destroy us. Mr. Stay Puft!”
7. Squirtle 2019 Target Exclusive – #505 (Vaulted)
Squirtle! Another original Pokemon and one that’s also instantly recognizable.
But let’s get a bit more nostalgic and look at the Squirtle Squad!
The Squirtle Squad, the handsome turtles in sunglasses that wreak havoc in Kanto, are made of Squritles abandoned by their trainers. And in fact, Ash’s Squirtle is their leader!
But after a fantastic episode: “Here Comes The Squirtle Squad!” the gang leader joins Ash, with the episode ending in a wholesome embrace.
Yet the Squirtle Squad appears out of the anime, too! In fact, in a recent Pokemon Go event, you could capture a Squirtle wearing sunglasses just like in the Squirtle Squad! How sweet is that?
“Squirtle! Squirt! Squirtle!”
8. Spongebob Squarepants Target Exclusive – #562 (Vaulted)
Who lives in a Pineapple under the sea? – Spongebob Squarepants!
Or, in this case, who lives in a box on your shelf? Of course, it’s the vaulted Spongebob Squarepants Target exclusive!
Now, let’s talk Spongebob. Did you know Spongebob has initially been called Spongebob? With the whole show being named Spongeboy Ahoy!
Unfortunately, though, that name was copyrighted — by a mop no less.
However, here’s something that will shock you about another character in the show:
Squidward isn’t a squid! Despite widespread belief, he’s a mix between a squid and an octopus, but with only six tentacles!
Is that fact enough to keep you up at night?
If not, we got more on the way in the following figure, but first, here are some quotes:
“I Order The Food, You Cook The Food. The Customer Gets The Food. We Do That For 40 Years, And Then We Die.” — Squidward To SpongeBob
And as this is a Spongebob Pop Figure, we’ve got you a Spongebob quote too:
“F is for friends who do stuff together!” — Spongebob.
We had to. It’s such a great 10 inch vaulted funko pop, wouldn’t you say?
9. Tony The Tiger – #70 (Vaulted)
“They’re great!” – Tony the Tiger.
That’s right, the next Funko Pop on our list is a mascot for a famous cereal brand: Tony the Tiger.
Though, as you well know, mascots make for some of the best Funko Pops. Why? Because they’re so recognizable!
However, did you know? Tony the Tiger is half Italian! Not that that matters when promoting cereal.
Yet, how do we know that? Well, back in the 70s, Kellog’s said:
“Tony even has a big Italian family.”
Here’s something else even less known:
The Pillsbury Doughboy came from the same creator! Does that make them brothers?
10. Hedwig Target Exclusive – #70 (VaulteD)
Last but not least is Hedwig. Who, interestingly enough, shares the same figure number as Tony the Tiger.
So let’s talk about Hedwig.
We mean, who wouldn’t want a giant 10″ Hedwig? She’s adorable!
Yet this will surprise you: there’s more than one Hedwig! Across the 8 Harry Potter films, she’s played by various animal actors!
What’s more, in-universe, she once flew to France! Considering Hogwarts is in Scotland, that’s an awful long way to fly!
We weren’t sure what quote to include for Hedwig, so we thought we’d end on an entertaining note:
And that’s it for our Top 10 inch vaulted Funko Pops!
