Rage Aginst The Machine and Stray Cats also get released
Brokker, a Japanese company that specializes in crafting 85 mm music figurines, is releasing block figures of Metallica, Sex Pistols, Rage Against The Machine and the Stray Cats. The officially licensed sets are only available to customers in Japan, the United States, and the United Kingdom via Brokker’s webstore.
The Metallica figures are accurate models of the band circa 1986, the year their third album Master of Puppets was released. The band’s wardrobe and instruments have been faithfully reproduced, down to the taping on Lars Ulrich’s drumsticks.
Rage Against The Machine is more than just a band. Their impact extends far beyond music. Brokker has been approved to release the first ever officially licensed RATM figures that includes all four members as a band! The company faithfully recreated the band’s look during their eye-opening performance at Woodstock ’99. No detail was spared in recreating their instruments. At Tom Morello’s feet is a DigiTech-approved Whammy pedal that is crucial to his distinctive style. These figures will please even their most diehard fans.
The Sex Pistols, UK’s iconic punk pioneer which stole the scene in the late 1970’s, costumes are faithful reproductions of “God Save The Queen” stage costumes. Sid Vicious’ chain necklace, known as “Sid Chain” among fans, is independently molded, and other details like band members’ instruments are meticulously perfected to the fans’ delight.
In celebration of the Stray Cats’ 40th anniversary, Brokker has released figures to capture the band’s image circa 1983. Brokker recreated everything from the individual members to their instruments in great detail. Brian Setzer’s Gretsch-type guitar, Lee Rocker’s upright bass, and Slim Jim Phantom’s drum set, included with the figures, were made using new metal molds. Fans can display them as if the band is performing live on stage.
