All over the internet yesterday, My Chemical Romance has trended harder than they have since their break up was announced in 2013.
Too soon? Sorry, Killjoys. Maybe this will make it better! Funko Pop! will be releasing three different MCR related Pop Figures.
For those who have some how missed out on what a Pop Figure is, they're these little figurines often modeled after pop cultural icons. They're primarily fiction characters, but there's also the Funko Pop! Rock collection which has many music legends such as The Beatles, Elvis Presley and many more.
Joining that collection is three different versions of Gerard Way.
Prices or release dates are currently unknown, we're afraid. As long as they stick to normal Pop Figure prices, they should be between $12 and $15. Some do range a bit higher, and given the popularity of MCR, that is a possibility.
We're wondering.....will these be all for the MCR pop figures? If so...why are you not including the rest of the band? They're all highly important members as well, and have very cool styles to play with. They could easily have many versions for each member, and the Danger Days version of Gerard as well.
We're also hoping this is the start of something more with Funko Pop! We are collectors of the figurines ourselves, and would absolutely love to see other bands get turned into figurines. Many people have taken the DIY ones available and turned them into band members, but official versions would be very cool. Get on it, Funko! We want more!
These Pop Figures should be available very soon! The Skeleton Gerard Way is a Hot Topic exclusive and the other two will be pre-released at Hot Topic and then will be available everywhere else. At least, that's our understanding of it. If someone has more insight on that, please let us know.
While you're at it, which one do you like best? Do you plan on getting any (or all) of them? Let us know! Personally, we want the Revenge one the most. The Three Cheers For Revenge album is easily our personal favorite MCR album and we quite like the style of it as well.
These are just some of the happenings in the music world. There will always be something that Immortal Music did not cover, but here are just some events.
