Check Out These Fan-Made twenty one pilots POP! Vinyls
Earlier in the month, we questioned the fact that twenty one pilots hadn’t yet had their own Funko POP! vinyl figures made – but it turns out an amazingly creative fan has already invented their own custom versions.
After it was revealed at the start of July that fans and POP! collectors alike would soon be able to purchase their very own official Ned (taken, of course, from the duo’s video for Chlorine), Instagram user @msbeliever_71 has taken things even further and made their very own Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun.
In the caption of photo of their POP! vinyls, they write:
“I made this set of twenty one pilots Funko POP!s especially for the Clique convention (@cliqueconvention) that’s happening in Columbus in June 2020.”
They then go on to explain that they will not be making any to sell, because, “Morally I could never sell them for a profit and I wouldn’t be able to keep up trying to sell them at cost. Trust me… if I could make everyone a set I totally would! But, that’s impossible so I’ll stick to random giveaways to make it fair for everyone.”
And of POP!-style Tyler and Josh’s looks, @msbeliever_71 adds: “What makes these Funkos so special are the many different looks the boys have brought to us over the years which is what inspires my creations.”

I made this set of @twentyonepilots funko pops especially for the Clique convention (@cliqueconvention) that’s happening in Columbus in June 2020. (I've had a few people asking if I could make and sell them a set of Twenty Øne Piløts Funko pops and the answer is still. Nope,Knope,Noughp What makes these Funkos so special are the many different looks the boys have brought to us over the years which is what inspires my creations. Morally I could never sell them for a profit and I wouldn’t be able to keep up trying to sell them at cost. Trust me.. if I could make everyone a set I totally would! But, that’s impossible so, I’ll stick to random giveaways to make it fair for everyone ||-// ) #twentyonepilots #cliquecon #skeletonclique #cliqueart #FanArtFriday
twenty one pilots will return to the UK this summer to headline Reading & Leeds in August.
We asked Tyler what fans can expect from their debut headline slot at one of the UK’s biggest festivals, and he enthused:
“The culture of music in the UK is something we’ve always looked up to. Some of our favourite performances of festivals and stuff has been over here. In a sense, when you live over in the States, you kind of look over at the UK as a very credible, cool, authentic music scene.
“It’s tough to get everything in our live show to translate over into a festival set, but there’s something special about festivals, and something special about being outside, too. And that set is going to be like no other set we’ve ever played. There’s definitely an air of unpredictability, and you don’t really know exactly what to expect. You’d be a fool to assume that everybody is there to watch you – or even know who you are. So there’s a bit of a competitive edge to it, because there’s so many awesome bands on the bill, and so being motivated to rise above that giant pool of talent, and to make your mark, is something that we’re really excited to step up to that challenge.
“The last time we played Reading was one of my favourite sets ever. I did a stage-dive and climbed over the top of 10,000 people, and had a few people pulling on me in the process, but I rather enjoyed it! I thought it was a lot of fun, and the energy was amazing. I can’t wait to do it all over again – we’ll see what happens this time…”
