Funko Announce Slipknot, Slayer, Motörhead, Ghost And Weezer POP! Vinyl
Good news for the many thousands of us who love collecting vinyl figurines and bobbleheads: Funko have just announced some epic new rock and metal POP! vinyl.
Ahead of this week’s London Toy Fair, Funko have unveiled Slipknot, Slayer, Motörhead, Ghost and Weezer figures, following in the footsteps of Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, twenty one pilots, blink-182, Panic! At The Disco, KISS, My Chemical Romance and more, who’ve all got their own Funko ranges.
The new lines feature Slipknot’s Corey Taylor, Craig Jones and Sid Wilson (interesting choices – no Clown?! No Jim Root or Mick Thomson?!), Kerry King, Tom Araya and Jeff Hanneman of Slayer, Lemmy and a metallic Warpig from the Motörhead range, a spectacular looking Papa Nihil from Ghost, and Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo.
Check out what they look like below, and see more info right here. The figures aren’t yet available to buy – but Funko’s website lists their status as ‘coming soon’…
