Def Leppard are the latest rock group to be caricatured by Funko Pop! Pictures of the funko rockers are below!
According to UCR, the jingo for the Funko blog post collectable promotion runs “Bring a massive sound wave of new wave British heavy metal to your collection.”
The set of caricatures include five plastic models of singer Joe Elliott, drummer Rick Allen, bassist Rick Savage, guitarist Phil Collen and guitarist Vivian Campbell.
Each collectable can be bought separately and are available for pre-order now. Def Leppard have had a busy year with a successful residency at Las Vegas which has encouraged the band to return for more concerts.
The lead singer, Joe Elliott has revealed that the rockers plan to release a new live album, of the band’s 1980 performance at the New Oxford Theatre in England.
In a recent interview, Elliot told Eddie Trunk “It’s warts and all, it is what it is, It’s us live in 1980. We were discussing off-mic … about lip-syncing or overdubbing. … You can’t have it. You can’t expect a 59-year old me to go in and clean up a 20-year old vocal.”
“You know what I mean? So, it is what it is. But I tell you this much: The band, as I said in the liner notes, when you peer through the curtain of uncertainty that my voice was back in those days, there is a fantastic band onstage.”
“And the two-arm Rick Allen with [bassist Rick Savage] was some rhythm section to come, considering he was 16 years old and Sav was 17, I think, maybe 18. And Pete [Willis] and Steve [Clark] were 17 and 18 years old. It was some band.”
As a special addition to the figures, Funko is set to launch a Police three-pack, celebrating Def Leopard’s 1983 album Synchronicity. The set includes Sting, Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers coloured yellow, red and blue, similar to the LP’s cover art.
