“Gimme Fuel, Gimme Fire, Gimme Toys That I Desire!!!” So you’ve seen us discuss the fine offerings from the Funko folks in our yearly Toy Fair coverage and while the company makes a whole lot of cool things, their biggest seller of them all is the Pops! They are super collectible figures and cover so many different licensed properties that its safe to say if you have a favorite character that there is very likely a Pop for them. Over the years they’ve made several music Pops and have done KISS, BabyMetal and even Guns N Roses – Now it’s time to showcase their Metallica Pops and they are so awesome that you just might get “Whiplash” when you see them. Sorry that was terrible but check them all out below along with a brief bit of company press copy.
The Press Release:
One of the most influential rock bands of all time is now joining the Funko family! This series of Pop! music includes all four members of the legendary band Metallica! Add James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo to your collection this Summer.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I just love the Funko Pops and while I am not actively collecting them since there are so many and I don’t need another hobby, I do have a few of them in my possession. I missed out on the KISS ones but will likely grab these Metallica ones and hope that sometime in the future that the company decides to reissue them. I think I’d also love to see Iron Maiden’s Eddie being made into a series of Pops and the guys in Ghost since we have a few different Papa’s and assorted Nameless Ghouls. Those would work considering the bands rising popularity. What do you think about this? Will you be adding them to your collection of Metallica or Toy Stuff? Chime in down below.
