Toy Nirvana: Funko To Release Kurt Cobain Collectible Figurines
Offering tangible proof that grunge pioneers can make for music collectible fun, toy manufacturer Funko has announced a new line of Kurt Cobain figurines.
Available starting in January, Funko's Cobain collection will feature three figurines: the Nirvana frontman in a striped brown-and-green shirt with an electric guitar, a la "Smells Like Teen Spirit"; Cobain in a grey sweater clutching an acoustic guitar, as an homage to the group's "MTV Unplugged" performance; and Cobain in a white shirt, black jacket and electric guitar.
Funko has licensed figures for various musicians, including Justin Bieber, Metallica, Amy Winehouse, Jerry Garcia, and Elton John. Their trademark figures pair a ginormous head and small body, with fun details that bring the music personalities to life.
