Nuking the Collectable: Indiana Jones Crystal Skull Action Figure

One of the most controversial (a.k.a. geeks hated it, nobody else thought twice about it) scenes in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was the scene where Indiana survives a nuclear blast at ground zero by hiding in a refrigerator. The scene was so infamous that it spawned the term "nuking the fridge." Considering how much hatred the scene inspired, why would anyone want a collectible action figure of it that costs $175? One would assume the answer would be nobody. So what does it mean that all 600 of them sold out before it was even released? That scene couldn't have been that bad, right? Yes, it was. But the action figure is funny. Never underestimate the power of irony.

  1. LOL. Oddly enough I'd love to have it just so I could laugh at how stupid it was.
