IRON MAIDEN: 'Pop! Rocks' Figures From FUNKO Coming Soon

The popular vinyl collectible company Funko — best known for its big-headed Pop! figures — has joined forces with IRON MAIDEN.

The British metal legends' collaboration with Funko was announced on Monday (December 2) in a blog post on the Funko web site.

Four different versions of Eddie, the iconic mascot of IRON MAIDEN, are available for pre-order. The figures capture Eddie in forms relating to the band's first four LPs: "Pop! Iron Maiden Eddie", "Pop! Killers Eddie", "Pop! Number Of The Beast Eddie" and "Pop! Piece of Mind Eddie".

"Showcase your IRON MAIDEN pride by bringing home the band's immortal mascot today," the blog post reads.

According to Funko, this is "wave one reimagining Eddie's appearances," implying that more figures will be coming at a later date.

Other artists who have gotten the Pop! Rocks treatment include KISS, METALLICA, GUNS N' ROSES, AC/DC, Ozzy Osbourne, DEF LEPPARD and Rob Zombie.

A Funko vinyl Pop! figure, or popularly known as a "Pop!", is packaged carefully inside a box with a transparent front. The figurine is made out of vinyl and may come as a bobblehead.

Funko reported that these figurines increased its sales by 38 percent in the second quarter of 2019. International sales spiked 65 percent to $68.5 million, while U.S. revenue grew 26 percent to $122.7 million.

Headquartered in Everett, Washington, Funko is a leading pop culture consumer products company. Funko designs, sources and distributes licensed pop culture products across multiple categories, including vinyl figures, action toys, plush, apparel, housewares and accessories for consumers who seek tangible ways to connect with their favorite pop culture brands and characters.
