Where’s Tom and Matt?
Funko have announced that they’ll soon be selling their iconic Pop dolls of Blink-182 – but only of bassist Mark Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker.
The series of highly-collectable vinyl doll figurines depicting pop-culture icons with cartoon features and enlarged heads will be releasing models of Blink from September – however many fans have noted that the collection lacks one of former longstanding frontman Tom DeLonge and his replacement Matt Skiba.
The description on the website reads: “In true Blink-182 fashion, Mark is depicted wearing the blue octopus that has become his signature logo and carrying his signature hot pink bass guitar and Travis is depicted with a backwards cap, face tattoos, skater punk attire and his drumsticks.”
Earlier this year, Kurt Cobain and Elton John were added to the Pop! Funko collection. Other stars to be immortalised include Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, My Chemical Romance, BABYMETAL, Lemmy, Amy Winehouse, Justin Bieber and Jimi Hendrix.
Meanwhile, last week saw Hoppus took to social media to reveal that he once advised a Navy Admiral on the most effective way to capture Saddam Hussein and remove him from power.
The band are also working on new music, which they say is in a similar vein to their classic album ‘Take Off Your Pants And Jacket’.
