Along with so many other music icons, we lost one of the founding fathers of heavy metal this year. Along with his iconic band, Motorhead, Lemmy Kilmister has sparked a flame that has burned for three generations of music fans. His high-powered music and style live on through his immortal singing and songwriting.
Just when you thought that the Pop! Vinyl collection couldn’t get any more complete, Funko has upped their game considerably by introducing this Funko Lemmy Kilmister Pop! Vinyl Figure. The heavy-metal icon is armed with his bass guitar, trademark hat, tattoos, and easily recognizable facial blemishes. There simply isn’t a Pop! Vinyl figure quite as gritty and just plain hard as this Lemmy collectible.
The Pop! Vinyl aesthetic is definitely in play here. The large head, expressive single-dot eyes, and 3 ¾-inch size is spot-on Funko. What’s new is the attitude. Hard rocking and hard living made Lemmy one of the most recognizable figures in the world of hard music. And his image is preserved in every way through the Pop! Vinyl treatment.
Amy Winehouse was an icon of soul and jazz, and the new Amy Winehouse POP! Vinyl Figure captures her ‘60s throwback look and style that was ahead of the cultural curve by almost a decade.
Amy’s iconic beehive, winged eyeliner, and tattoos are all present, and the snazzy pink ribbon adds a pop of color to her classy get-up. Like all POP! Vinyl figures, Amy is just less than 4 inches tall and comes packaged in a tasteful window box.
Both musicians helped pave the way for a whole generation of hard rockers and vintage-style singers, respectfully. Does this mean we’ll be getting more Heavy Metal or powerhouse singer POP! Vinyl’s?
