Iron Maiden are an English heavy metal band formed in Leyton, East London, in 1975 by bassist and primary songwriter Steve Harris.
Although fluid in the band’s early years, for most of the band’s history the line-up consisted of Harris, lead vocalist Bruce Dickinson, drummer Nicko McBrain, and guitarists Dave Murray, Adrian Smith and Janick Gers.
As pioneers of the new wave of British heavy metal movement, Iron Maiden released a series of UK and US Platinum and Gold albums, including 1980’s debut album, 1981’s Killers, and 1982’s The Number of the Beast – the first album to feature Bruce Dickinson, who replaced Paul Di’Anno as lead singer.
The band have released 41 albums, including 17 studio albums, 13 live albums, four EPs and seven compilations. They have also released 47 singles, 20 video albums and two video games. For over 40 years the band have featured their signature mascot, “Eddie” (also known as Eddie the Head), on the covers of almost all of their releases.
The band and its members have received multiple industry awards, including the Grammy Awards, Brit Awards, Silver Clef Award, Nordoff-Robbins Award, Ivor Novello Awards, Juno Awards and Guinness Book of World Records.
Iron Maiden also features in the populair Funko Pop! Rocks series, where Eddie the mascot is transformed into different Funko Pop! vinyl figures. Each Iron Maiden Funko Pop! vinyl figure released in the Funko Pop! Rocks series is named after one of the band’s albums.
In addition to the released Iron Maiden Funko Pop! vinyl figures in the Funko Pop! Rocks series, Iron Maiden also appears in the Funko Pop! Albums series, with a released Funko Pop! Album figure from Powerslave, the band’s fifth studio album.
The Funko Pop! Albums series is a combination of a Funko Pop! vinyl figure, pre-packaged in a hard premium protective case. The protective case is decorated with album cover artwork and the case features a Funko Pop! vinyl figure representing the likeness of the album cover.
The protective case measures approximately: 8.75”W x 8.75”H x 3.75”D (W 21.8 cm x H 22.8 cm x D 8.4 cm). The Funko Pop! Albums can be easily hung on the wall.
The newly announced Iron Maiden – The Trooper Funko Pop! Album figure is the latest release of the Pop! Albums series. The Trooper is not an Iron Maiden album but an Iron Maiden song and was released on June 20, 1983 as the second single from the band’s fourth studio album, Piece of Mind (1983).
