Funko Pops are the coolest line of figurines on the market right now, and they're known for featuring iconic characters from across pop culture, from TV to comics to classic rock. Perhaps it is their simple designs or their affordable prices, but something about them has made them a major sensation among figure enthusiasts the world over.
While classic rock remains iconic the world over, there are precious few Funko Pop figures that remain for sale featuring these icons - so it is important that you find the coolest ones now before they disappear off store shelves forever.
Elvis may be the King, but Funko has only so many figures of this classic rock-and-roll icon. Graceland's claim to fame may be one of the most influential singers ever to rock, but it is hard to buy one of his figures. Some have gone out-of-stock, while others demand nearly $200 for one figure!
But the price... it's worth it. Each figure presents Elvis in his signature, flashy outfits, and are must-have collectibles for anyone assembling some classic rock figures.
The Demon - KISS
KISS's colorful members may be among the most visually iconic and cool-looking classic rockers. It would make sense if Funko had tons of these figures rocking around. Alas, many of KISS's figures are out of stock or exceedingly rare.
It may be inevitable that Gene Simons's Demon returns to store shelves, but, as it stands, this one remains on the rare side. If it gets re-issued, buy one. It is way too cool not to own one.
Guns N' Roses's notoriously volatile frontman, Axl Rose stands as another less common Funko Pop figure you need to get. It's simple, but for fans of the band, it's too cool to ignore.
While less flashy and over-the-top as other figures on this list, it remains a classic depiction of one of rock's greatest singers... and of one of the hardest people to work with. What took you that long to pump out Chinese Democracy, huh?
Black Sabbath is one of the first metal bands to ever hit the scene. And, Ozzy Osborne became an overnight sensation thanks to some of his... crazier antics. If you're amassing a collection of Funko Pop figures, then you need to get Ozzy on your shelf.
Aside from just looking cool, Ozzy is iconic in and of himself. Even if you don't collect all the classic rock figurines, he remains a pop culture icon in and of himself. A must-own... if you can get your hands on one.
The Misfits Fiend
Another icon of the classic rock scene, The Misfits remain a mainstay of punk rock. If you're a fan of the band, you may want to buy this little figurine.
As far as I know, it may be the only Misfits merch in the Funko Pop line. If so, then you might as well get it. That said, it's also rather expensive, but, if you're a die-hard fan, then you'll want it.
Imagine all the people who would rage if I didn't mention that John Lennon has a Funko Pop figure. I wonder if you can. None of the classic rock stars mentioned elsewhere compare to Lennon's iconic presence in the world of rock.
There are several Beatles funko figures, but John Lennon remains the most iconic member of the group, albeit maybe not the most liked. More of a Paul McCartney fan, personally.
Yes, I know this is a Labyrinth Funko Pop figure, but it's still David Bowie, at, arguably, his greatest. Even a year after his death, Bowie seems like too gargantuan a figure to sum up as part of "classic rock," yet his classic songs remain a favorite - to me, especially.
Maybe someday they will release more variations on Bowie's many looks, but, for now, this is best Funko Pop figure to capture Bowie's other-worldly presence.
