ANGUS YOUNG ‘Pop!’ Vinyl Figures From FUNKO Coming In January
December 10, 2018
Toy maker Funko will release Pop! vinyl figures of AC/DC guitarist Angus Young in January.
Young figures will be made available in three separate combinations of hats and schoolboy outfits: a black suit and cap, or a navy blue suit with a blue hat featuring both an “A” and the “Highway To Hell” devil horns; and an FYE-exclusive variant featuring a red suit and the blue “A” cap, minus the horns.
Since they were first released in 2011, Funko Pop! figures have quickly taken over the market of collectible pop culture icons and events.
Funko recently crafted a special Pop! vinyl figure in the likeness of the cover artwork for METALLICA‘s 1988 album “…And Justice For All”. Previously, all four members of the legendary heavy metal band were turned into Funko Pop! figures.
AC/DC is rumored to be in the midst of making — or at least planning — another album, with drummer Phil Rudd and singer Brian Johnson both back in the lineup. Online reports have also indicated Angus Young will dedicate the new AC/DC album to his late brother.
