Announcement Coming Soon Event
Published on 21 February 2022 by William
Iron Maiden's Powerslave album available in POP
After the Britney Spears album unveiled earlier, Funko remains in the musical universe but changes the register for this new POP Album by focusing on... Iron Maiden. Yes, for the Funko Fair 2022, Funko is offering a new POP Album (the POP figures that pay tribute to the albums of the greatest bands or singers).
This is far from being the very first Iron Maiden POP, as the set is already well-filled with (so far) 11 figures featuring the band, including a multipack, a chase or a glow in the dark. But until now, Eddie was mostly seen under different aspects, reminding the success of Iron Maiden. The sweetest POP is therefore about to become a masterpiece for all the fans of the band since it is a POP Albums cover.
But which album is it? If I tell you "Egypt", "Aces High" or "2 minutes to midnight", you have it? And yes, it is indeed the album "Powerslave" which was chosen by Funko to propose an exceptional POP Albums #16. Released in 1984, it is the fifth Iron Maiden album and often cited as the fans' favorite!
Funko makes a perfect POP that pays tribute to the spirit of the album and its Egyptian universe. The cover (made by artist Derek Riggs) presents a pyramid whose entrance is marked by a huge sphinx as imposing as it is scary. The POP naturally represents the Sphynx with its yellow and blue headdress, its flames in the eyes and its imposing architectural style. Funko has left no stone unturned for this Iron Maiden POP, even drawing the many hieroglyphs on the stones.
If you are a fan of the band and of this album in particular, this announcement is a very nice surprise and you will be able to display the Iron Maiden Powerslave POP on your shelves very soon.
