Funko unveiled two new sets of BTS and KISS figures at Toy Fair New York 2019. That’s right, the makers of the infectiously-collectible pop culture bubbleheads have added two of the most epic bands in music history to their toy lineup. Members of the groups’ huge international fan armies will undoubtedly be stoked to get their hands on them.
BTS has arguably dominated the music landscape over the past year, shattering YouTube records with their “Idol” music video, achieving a rare chart double, and selling out stadiums at concerts all over the world. The South Korean boyband has sparked a k-pop fire around the world and now RM, Suga, V, Jin, Jimin, Jungkook and J-Hope will be immortalized by the popular collectible brand.
As revealed in the video (attached above) and on Twitter, Grammy-nominated rapper Post Malone is also getting a Pop! figure, as well as *NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, Migos, Johnny Cash, "The Big Bang Theory" cast members, "The Office" cast, "The Simpsons" cast, "The Addams Family" cast, "Jaws" cast and more.
BTS recently lit up the red carpet at the 2019 Grammy Awards, where they earned their first-ever Grammy nomination. They also presented the Grammy Award for Best R & B Album to a very stunned and humble H.E.R. As previously reported, Mattel is also planning to release a set of BTS dolls.
KISS has excited hard rock – glam rock fans for more than 45 years. The band is currently comprised of Gene Simmons (The Demon), Paul Stanley (Starchild), Eric Singer (Catman) and Tommy Thayer (Spaceman). Having sold over 100 million records worldwide, they are one of the best-selling bands of all time. The Grammy-nominated rockers are Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees who are known for their wildly-theatrical live stage show featuring heavy pyrotechnics and signature makeup.
KISS is currently on their final End of the Road tour. Tickets to select KISS live shows are available from AXS. Browse a list of upcoming KISS 2019 End of the Road shows here.
