From Post Malone and BTS to Kurt Cobain and Prince
Funko Pop!, the much-loved, and very collectable, series of big-headed plastic nick-nacks, have just announced a new collection of famous figurines, including new models Backstreet Boys, Johnny Cash, Kiss and more.
To mark the launch, here’s a rundown of some of the very best music-themed Funko Pop dolls: old and new.
Arriving in May 2019, this incredible Post Malone Funko Pop doll is just one standout from the new collection. It has to be the first bobblehead to come with face tattoos, right?
All seven of these figurines will be must-haves for any self-respecting member of BTS Army. The picture above is of the group’s rapper Suga. Like the Posty one, these will all arrive in May 2019.
There’s a couple of different Funko Pops of the late Nirvana frontman, but this one is probably our favourite – showing Vinyl Kurt wearing the cardigan from his band’s iconic MTV Unplugged performance.
Suedehead? Shouldn’t that be Vinylhead. He may divide opinion, but die-hard Smiths fans will really want this Moz figurine on their mantelpiece.
One of the most expensive figurines in our list, this rare Tupac Funko Pop fetches for about £770 online, as it’s no longer for sale on the official Funko website.
Eight years since her passing, Amy Winehouse remains one of the UK’s biggest musical exports. This Funko Pop depicts the late star from her landmark Live In London concert from 2007.
Skrrt, skrrrrrtttt. These Migos figurines are among the newest editions to be announced and arrive in August 2019.
One man, a guitar and a flannel shirt. This Ed Sheeran figurine is as simple but effective as the star himself.
My Chemical Romance
Gerard Way may have moved on to comic books and Netflix shows recently, but you can hark back to his band’s Black Parade era with this nostalgic souvenir piece.
Among the pricier side of things, Funko have figurines of all four Beatles members in their Yellow Submarine garb. They’re currently sold out, so you’ll have to buy them second-hand. The John one is currently selling for around £720, while Paul’s doll is going for £450.
One of the most popular festive songs of all time, this Funko Pop doll of the iconic ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ video outfit would be a perfect early Xmas gift for any Mariah stans.
Just finished watching the biopic? Get this Queen-themed Funko Pop doll. There’s also a Freddie figurine with his outfit from Queen’s famed Wembley 1986 concert too.
There are two other Funko Pop dolls of the Purple One (Doves Cry, 2004 Grammys), but you don’t get much more iconic than Prince in the ‘Purple Rain’ video.
Bieber doesn’t really look like this any more, but maybe that makes this Funko Pop even more of a must-have? A time capsule to Biebs of past, if you will.
Stock up on these two Blink-182 figurines and maybe if Tom DeLonge ever rejoins the band, Funko will produce a third and you can complete your set.
First he went viral, then he went vinyl. Yes, Psy of ‘Gangnam Style’ fame has his very own Funko doll…
