Toy manufacturer Funko have been adding some of the world’s best-loved musicians to their Pop! Rocks range over the last few years.
Artists including Def Leppard (opens in new tab), Rob Zombie, Kiss, Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Jimi Hendrix, Lemmy, Ozzy Osbourne, Johnny Rotten, Dee Dee and Johnny Ramone, Babymetal, Kurt Cobain, Elton John and the Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia have all graced the lineup.
But there’s been someone missing from the action – not a musician, but one of rock’s most recognisable characters. That’s right – it’s Iron Maiden (opens in new tab) mascot Eddie. Thankfully, the team at Funko have decided to right this wrong and they’ll be releasing four flavours of Eddie in the not too distant future.
The four figures take their inspiration from the first four Iron Maiden albums, so prepare for Pop! Iron Maiden Eddie, Pop! Killers Eddie, Pop! Number Of The Beast Eddie, and Pop! Piece Of Mind Eddie.
There’s no release date yet, but let’s hope they’re out in time for Christmas. Check out all four below.
Last week, it was revealed that Maiden had teamed up with West Ham United for the Die With Your Boots On collaboration (opens in new tab) which sees the band's logo represented on the shirts of the Premier League side.
Iron Maiden will extend The Legacy Of The Beast tour into 2020 and will also headline the UK’s Download festival next summer.
