A twenty one pilots-themed Funko POP! vinyl is coming.

twenty one pilots Are Releasing A Ned Funko POP! Vinyl

While it seems somewhat surprising that twenty one pilots are yet to be immortalised themselves in Funko POP! vinyl figure form, the next best thing is soon arriving: everyone's favourite little dude Ned.

Of course, Ned was introduced earlier in the year via twenty one pilots' brilliant video for Chlorine, and has since become a firm fan-favourite – with people creating their own plush versions of the character, and this weekend a themed pop-up shop, Ned's Bayou, arriving in the band's hometown of Columbus, Ohio.

If you were lucky enough to attend the store, you'll have been the first to see that there's a Ned Funko POP! vinyl arriving very soon, with a prototype figure available to check out, and a number to text to "be the first to purchase" your very own Ned.

Also on sale at Ned's Bayou between June 28-30 were Ned hoodies, T-shirts, puns and dad hats, with some merch reportedly reading Summer Capsule 2019 – does this mean there will be more available later in the year? Hmmmm…

Anyway, check out some images of the Ned Funko POP! vinyl figure below, courtesy of @top__today:

twenty one pilots will return to the UK this summer to headline Reading & Leeds in August.

We recently 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…”
