The Cure have been turned into a new set of Funko POP! figures – check out the preview images below.
The five-pack includes a vinyl figurine of each band member – Robert Smith, Simon Gallup, Jason Cooper, Roger O’ Donnell and Reeves Gabrels – brandishing their respective instruments. Per an official listing, the toys are between 3.89-4.40-inches tall.
Launched as part of the POP! Rocks collection, the set is available to pre-order here for US$60.00 (£50.30). A release date is not yet known.
Both frontman Smith and keyboardist O’ Donnell have reacted to being given the Funko POP! treatment. Sharing an image of his figurine, Smith simply tweeted: “gulp…”
O’ Donnell, meanwhile, joked: “I don’t know if this means we’ve been reduced or elevated?”

In a description of the collection, Funko POP! wrote: “Dim the lights and cue the smoky blue fog. The Cure is taking centre stage in your POP! Rocks collection as a 5-pack of POPs! All the band members have united in this set.
“Enjoy the iconic sound of The Cure in a brand-new way. Grab front-row seats to relive your favourite memories and expand your POP! Rocks collection.”
Speaking at the BandLab NME Awards 2022 in March, Robert Smith exclusively told NME that The Cure’s long-awaited 14th album – the follow-up to 2008’s ‘4:13 Dream’ – will be called ‘Songs Of A Lost World’. “It’s got artwork, it’s got a running order, it’s almost done!” he explained.
Next Friday (November 25), Robert Smith will participate in a Twitter listening party to mark the 30th anniversary of The Cure’s ninth studio album ‘Wish’.
