Funko will release a Pop! vinyl figure of MOTÖRHEAD legend Lemmy Kilmister in November. The figure stands 3 ¾ inches tall and comes in a window display box.
Mark Robben, the toy company's director of marketing, told Fuse about its über-successful Pop! line: "This is now no longer just a collecting thing that is really kind of niche. Now it's hitting everybody, there's literally a license for everybody. If you like Batman, of course we got that. But if you like Supernatural or Orphan Black, or something that's a little deeper and a little more narrow, we've still got it." Robben noted that the Golden Girls and Star Wars Pop! dolls are huge successes, and that a collection of Playmobil dolls are on the way.
Lemmy, who celebrated his 70th birthday last Christmas Eve (December 24),learned two days later that he was afflicted with an aggressive form of cancer. He died two days later, on December 28, at his home in Los Angeles.
The MOTÖRHEAD frontman had dealt with several health issues over the past few years, including heart trouble, forcing him to cut back on his famous smoking and Jack Daniels habits.
The band canceled a number of shows last year, although they did manage to complete one final European tour on December 11, 2015.
