New toy company delivers two special edition red and blue versions of the legendary rock star in one of his most iconic poses during The Stooges
Wax Face, under exclusive license from Thread Shop, a division of Sony Music Entertainment, has announced two special edition red and blue figurines of Iggy Pop during one of his most iconic poses as part of The Stooges. The figures are manufactured by Unbox Industries, and kicks off a new series of figures in resin and vinyl from the best in music, film and cult popular culture.
With a position taken from Iggy Pop’s infamous “peanut butter incident” at Crosley Field with his proto-punk band, The Stooges at the Cincinnati Pop Festival June 13, 1970, this resin figure captures Iggy Pop hoisted high by an adoring audience in his iconic shirtless pose, seconds before smearing peanut butter all over his chest and throwing it into the crowd as The Stooges ripped through “1970” from Fun House.
Sculpted in London by ex-Madame Tussauds’ sculptors, these 15.7″ figures are molded in red and blue resin. They are available for pre-ordering at wax-face.com. The $250 USD cost includes shipping with tracking, and customer orders will begin shipping at the end of November.
Only 25 of each color will be printed. The black and silver figures, released earlier this year, have both already sold out but other colorways will be available to purchase at Unbox Industries periodically.
