Thanks to the kind folks at Toy Wars, Pop Price Guide has three yet-to-be-released Pops to show off! We’ll be posting one of each of these over the next three days, and we’ll get started today with an addition to the oft-neglected Pop! Rocks series, Amy Winehouse.
I’ll be honest, until recently I knew very little about Amy Winehouse other than her death and struggles with substance abuse. To get a little background before posting this, I checked out some of her tunes and learned a little about her, and I have to say I’m actually a little intrigued to hear more. As much as anything, I’m just excited that Pop Rocks is finally getting some more additions that are a little less esoteric than the likes of Babymetal and Vocaloids and more in the vein of musicians recognized by many.
Funko did a really nice job of capturing Winehouse’s jazzier side in this Pop, including her quasi-beehive hair with adornments. The artists even captured some of Amy’s tattoos on each arm, including (and a bit surprisingly) the nude woman’s torso on her left arm.
