Iron Maiden mascot Eddie is getting his own Funko Pop! NFTs. The digital assets will be available beginning September 30th.
Eddie and Iron Maiden will be toymaker Funko’s inaugural music Digital Pop! NFT. The collection will include 44 different versions of Eddie as digital “Pops!”
“We are huge Iron Maiden fans here at Funko and couldn’t be more excited to have our inaugural music Digital Pop! NFT be music icon Eddie,” Funko CEO Brian Mariotti said [via Billboard]. “Iron Maiden and Funko fans alike appreciate creative genius in music and pop culture. Now, they can celebrate both in digital form.”
The Eddie NFTs will be available in packs containing five digital “Pops!” and 15 digital “Pops!,” with prices starting at $9.99. A total of 24,000 packs will be available, and a maximum limit of $30 is allowed per transaction. A Worldwide Asset eXchange (WAX) wallet will be required to purchase the NFTs.
So far, only a teaser video can be seen, showing a few of the digital NFTs. Eddie is indeed recreated in cute Funko form, with animations bringing the beloved Maiden mascot to life. Previously, Funko has released actual figures of Eddie, as well as rock artists such as Guns N’ Roses, Queen, and Ozzy Osbourne.
