Queen and Funko’s Pop Rocks have teamed up to give fans something new. Funko announced that new Pop figures of Freddie Mercury are coming. The figures are based on his tank top and jeans look from the “Radio Ga Ga” Live Aid performance in 1985, and his king outfit from a “We Are the Champions” / “God Save the Queen” performance at Wembley in 1986.

Funko also paired the two new Freddie Mercury Pop figure releases with their first new Pop Album release in quite some time. It’s based on the cover of Queen’s 1977 album “News of the World,” which included the classic rock anthems “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Champions”.
The new Funko Pop figures follow a series of Queen figures from 2018. Three of those featured Mercury in different outfits: a harlequin jumpsuit, the white suit and yellow jacket he wore at the Wembley Stadium show, and the shirtless karate look he sported while touring behind 1982’s “Hot Space.”
The release mentions that all three are “coming in February 2021,” though the estimated ship date could change.
