Funko Pop! Rocks Vinyl Toy

So The Violet Reality & Dr. Funkenberry both are reporting that there is a Prince pop coming. Thoughts? I have my views, but I'll wait for others to speak first.

They need to contact the guy that made this in a 3D sculpting class:

This one looks like Prince, that other looks like Weird Al Yankovic trying to look like Prince. lol

Longtime action figure collector... who hates Funko Pops.

I'd rather McFarlane Toys did some figures, but, oh well, I'll probably pick this up.

We were HERE, where were you?

indeed. i've bought the jim morrison and elvis figures for my dad. he's had them displayed for years....a string bending, guitar faced rock n roll hall of fame prince figure would be pretty sweet.

that said, i hope none of my family get hip to this funko pop thang, else i'll get half a dozen of them for christmas. although my son did get one of the 500 gold joey votto pops at the reds game the other night...that shit's selling for $300. prince fans might just be crazy enough to pay a premium if this ends up being a limited edition...

We have some McFarlane Hendrix, Joplin & KISS figures. They're terrific!

Would love to see them do a bunch of Prince from different eras, Dirty Mind through Gold Experience would all be awesome.

I'd like a Hot Toys or Blitzways Prince. I can dream.

Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

I shared these points on Twitter:

  1. obviously does not look like him beyond the guitar or a purple trench coat
  2. it is a fad like Beanie Babies™, which means in another five years they will be on eBay for $4 for a set of three or something equally overpriced
  3. people will buy it simply because it says Prince on it and not because it is something that Prince would have ever wanted; he stayed away from cheesy ass dust collector stuff like this for a reason - it cheapens the brand.
  4. It has nothing to do with his love, his generosity, his music, or his ensuing legacy; it doesn't say Prince
  5. It's garbage.

No thanks.

.

.

Which was already reported in the link I posted.

Oh hey look, FACTS instead of hurt feefees.

People are really fascinated by this things. They've never interest me so I'll pass but I've seen so many people with these things I'm sure the Prince one will sell well.

You've greatly over-estimate your role in my life Bert. You are irrelevant outside of the Org, and barely a blip on anyone's radar within the Org.

Others have substantiated the reason for this post, so bye for you.

I work for this company at the headquarters and didn't even know about this. After looking into it, I won't give away any secrets but I will say that this is just the tip of the iceberg. Some surprising era ones are on their way too. Looks like I'll finally have a reason to use my very generous employee discount.

P.S. After sharing this thread with my co-workers, honestly we're getting the biggest laugh out of how angry and hostile fams can get over a f'ing toy. One said "I heard that Prince was crazy when he changed his name to that symbol. But he has nothing on these crazy people." It was a lot funnier with her heavy Spanish accent and being the nicest lady that has never before said a bad thing about anyone else.
Hahahaha

I think it's stupid and cheapens his profile as well, all the things everybody else has said. But this kinda crap is to be expected since he's (((gulp))) passed.


They have to blitz and keep his stuff in the public eye. at least until further releases. I've always hated these stupid things but i bought some discounted black guy pops at a dollar store and intend to cut, glue, splice and paint them into one of my favorite bands.


There's a story that these will feature eras of Prince just like his reductionist HNR album cover art

My 13 year old son collects these. He got me a Jimi Hendrix figure as present at Christmas. He proudly stands on one of my speakers so it would be nice to have a Prince one for the other speaker.
