I’ve been getting a lot of press releases from the fine fiends at Aggronautix and since we’ve been doing topical toy items when they relate to the comics and music interests I want to share them with you. This is one of the company’s own branded “THROBBLEHEADS” and this one is an homage to the late great Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead. Check out the images below and the details on how to get one.
Introducing the LEMMY bobblehead by Drastic Plastic! LIMITED TO 2000 – SHIPS LATE JAN / EARLY FEB
One of the great personalities in rock ân rollâs storied mythology is Ian Fraser âLemmyâ Klimister, infamous front man for the legendary metal band Motorhead and early bassist for British space-rockers Hawkwind.
While Lemmy might be gone for almost a year now, his memory is as vital in the minds of Rock and Metal fans worldwide for both his many, many albums and incredible concert performances. Now, he will live on in perhaps his cutest form ever as a Funko “Pop! Rocks” vinyl figurine. It’s available now and depending on where you purchase it can be obtained for anywhere between $10-$20 bucks.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Those who’ve been reading the website for a little while know that we’ve been attending the American International Toy Fair for a few years now. It’s a super important event to cover based on the Pop Culture geek stuff that I regularly discuss and one of my favorite stops at the show is the Funko pavilion. While initially an ingenue about the brand, I didn’t realize that their KISS releases would disappear as quickly as they did and now they fetch at least three times their original price. I love the fun look of the Pops! and if you click their tag down below you’ll see all the different things from the Toy Fair events of the past. They pretty much have something for every collector but I would choose wisely or you will put yourself in the poor house based on just how many figurines there are. Okay so to close up what do you think about this Lemmy Pop!, will you be adding him to your collection or sitting him on top of a bass head? Chime in down below and feel free to let me know who you would like to see the company do next. Thanks for listening.
It’s with great sadness that I must share the news that the great Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead has passed away. The musician, who was born Ian Fraser Kilmister, was plagued by health issues over the last couple of years but seemed to be coming along from them with proper rest. He was 70 years old and had just celebrated this milestone of a birthday on Christmas Eve. Hard Rock music and Metal on the whole have lost one of their most iconic figures. The photos below are from a group of images taken during the Jones Beach Theater performance in September. It would be their last concert in NY and sadly now the last time that many of us would see them based on today’s news.
At the show that I caught back in September I discussed with many of my friends how tired Lemmy had looked and perhaps he needed to quietly say “hey gang its been great but this is too much for me at long last” but he didn’t stop pushing and instead did a score of more shows and then the Motorboat Cruise. This man was the living embodiment of the Rock and Roll spirit and nothing was doing to get in his way or stop him from doing this as he saw fit to do so. His famous nickname is alleged to have come from his habit of asking people to “lemme a quid (fiver) till Friday”. Continue reading Amps Off: Lemmy Kilmister Has Passed Away (12/24/1945-12/28/2015)→
