A set of Queen collectible figures will be released later this year – you can pre-order them below.
The limited-edition figures of Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon are currently being produced by KnuckleBonz. The hand-crafted pieces mimic the band’s model from their 1981 concert in Montreal.
Officially licensed and approved by the Queen, collectible figures are hand-painted, numbered, and comes with a certificate of authenticity at the base. Limited to 3000, the Rock Iconz series celebrates the world’s greatest musical artists in a limited edition collector’s series.
This isn’t the first time Knucklebonz has sculpted Rock Iconz in Mercury and May, but it is the first time they have sculpted the entire band.
“It’s been over a decade since our original Queen Rock Iconz designs for Freddie and Brian,” said Tony Simerman, KnuckleBonz CEO / creative director. “This time out, we will be able to create the entire band, as it should be.”
He continued: “We are beyond excited to ship individual statues for Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon late this year…and oh yes, lots of other surprises for Queen superfans in our ‘3D Vinyl’ and ‘On Tour’ series.”

Meanwhile, Brian May reveals that the late Queen vocalist Freddie Mercury once made tapes of all of the band’s guitar solos.
Speaking to Total Guitar, the guitarist opened up about the tale and how he’s frustrated that he can’t track the tape down.
“One day Freddie had a big smile on his face when I came into the studio and he popped a cassette into the player and said, ‘Listen to this, darling. This is going to surprise you.’ And what he’d done was spend the whole morning putting together all the guitar solos that he could find in the work that we’d done, and he’d strung them all together,” May said.
“It was quite amazing. And one of my big regrets is I can’t find that cassette. I never throw anything away. I’m a bit of a hoarder. So it ought to be somewhere. But Freddie was very proud of the stuff that I’d done and that we’d done together.”
