The first figure will be available in April 2018
Molecule 8, under license with Epic Rights and Yoko Ono Lennon, will launch a collection of John Lennon figures this spring. In April 2018, the first limited edition 12 inch John Lennon Figure will be released globally and will feature three finely tailored iconic outfit options from the “Imagine” era, his revolutionary anthem for peace and unity, two interchangeable head sculpts with singing and resting facial expressions, interchangeable hands for various gestures, classic yellow-tinted glasses, round style glasses, trademark cowboy boots from the “Imagine” era and custom engineered stand.
“The John Lennon Molecule 8 figures highlight a delicate balance of creativity, quality and artistry,” states Lisa Streff, EVP Global Licensing at Epic Rights. “The team at Molecule 8 are well known for creating figures of the highest quality that are eagerly sought by collectors and fans.”
“We are honored to have been approved by Yoko Ono and Epic Rights to develop a line of distinct premium collectibles under the John Lennon brand,” says Vijay Chadha, CEO of Molecule 8. “In addition to the sixth scale figure of Mr. Lennon, our team is developing a unique assortment of pieces that will speak to the genius, character, and passions that defined John Lennon, both as an artist and as a man.”
Pricing is $299.95 with free worldwide shipping. Pre-orders are underway with shipping the first week of April. The first 1,000 are sequentially numbered.
