Lemmy Pop! Vinyl Figurine Arriving in November
A collectible figurine of Motorhead frontman Lemmy will be released in November. It is part of Funko’s popular Pop! Rocks series.
The figure stands 3.75 inches high, weighs less than five ounces and comes in a window display box with the Motorhead logo on the back and a nod to a Jack Daniel’s bottle on the side. It replicates certain things associated with Lemmy, including his Rickenbacker bass, forearm tattoo calvary hat and facial moles. Unboxing Rocks created a video where they discuss the figurine, and it is embedded above.
Lemmy passed away on Dec. 28, 2015, shortly after his 70th birthday and only two days after having learned that he had prostate cancer. Since then, there have been pop culture tributes of all sorts, including a petition to have his trademark drink — Jack Daniel’s and Coke — renamed in his honor, a life-sized statue of him unveiled at his favorite hangout, the Rainbow Bar and Grill in Los Angeles. A song on Metallica’s upcoming record, Hardwired … To Self-Destruct, features a song called “Murder One,” which was written in memory of their longtime friend.
“Motorhead had a lot to do with Metallica sitting here right now,” James Hetfield said. “But just Lemmy as an entity, as kind of a father figure, he helped us a lot. He was unafraid. And he was a character. And he was himself. And we all respected that so much. He did his own thing to the last breath. No matter who you are, how could you not be inspired by that?”
You can order the Lemmy Pop! figurine for $10.95 plus shipping at Aggronautix.
