Freddie Mercury Gets Half of Queen’s New Funko Pop! Series
Hot on the heels of their new movie Bohemian Rhapsody, Queen have announced a six-figure series of Funko Pop! figures. And frontman Freddie Mercury gets half of them all to himself.
The charismatic and fashion-forward singer is featured wearing three different outfits -- a harlequin jumpsuit, the white-suit-and-yellow-jacket combo he wore for the band's famous 1986 Wembley Stadium show and the shirtless karate look he sported on tour in support of 1982's Hot Space.
Drummer Roger Taylor, bassist John Deacon and guitarist Brian May -- whose figure sports an especially impressive head of hair as well as the famous "red special" guitar -- all get their own Pop!s too. All six figures are expected to hit stores some time in December. Mercury's Hot Space figure will be available exclusively at FYE stores.
Special preview showings of Bohemian Rhapsody last night reportedly earned a robust $3.9 million. The movie is expected to top the box office this weekend, with between $35 and $40 million in ticket sales.
