Funko adds Hendrix & Lennon figures to collection; full-band editions of Green Day, Pearl Jam


"They're not toys, they're collectibles!"

Hey, you don't have to justify your Funko collection to us. Doesn't everyone have at least one, whether a comic book, a character from your favorite TV show, or, perhaps-- a favorite musician?

Now Funko has added some more oddly-shaped faces to their line of figurines, including some of our favorite rockers:

Guitar god Jimi Hendrix has been featured before, but now has a new addition, with his Funko capturing him as he appeared during a July 30, 1970 concert in Hawaii.

It's a new vision of John Lennon as well, with his figurine showing the Beatle in the iconic army he wore during his famous 1972 performance at Madison Square Garden.

If you like to rock harder, there's also a new Ozzy Osbourne figure, plus fans of Iron Maiden will enjoy not one but TWO new versions of the latter's famous mascot, "Eddie":

More of a Pearl Jam or Green Day fan? All members of those bands are getting new treatment from Funko:
