Weezer's Rivers Cuomo Is Getting His Very Own Funko POP Figurine

If you needed another way to show your love for Weezer, toy company Funko announced this week that it'll be releasing a Rivers Cuomo Funko POP! figurine. Clearing a spot on my bookshelf right this second!
Revealed at the 2020 London Toy Fair, the vinyl figurine features the Weezer singer with his iconic black-rimmed glasses as well as a sweater and signature teal guitar — covered in stickers and all. And it's truly spot on (just compare it to the photo above!)
“Aaaaaaaah Rivers. This is adorable I want it,” one fan posted on the brand's Instagram page. “IT'S HIM I NEED THIS ASAP,” another fan said.
This isn't the first time Funko has unveiled musicians in the form of POP! figurines, Cuomo's follows in the footsteps of Panic! At The Disco, twenty one pilots, blink-182, The Struts and may more. The brand also revealed Slipknot, Slayer, and ZZ Top would also be getting their own figurines.
At the moment, the brand has only posted Cuomo and it's unconfirmed if the rest of the band will also get their own figurines but here's hoping! A release date hasn't been set yet but fingers crossed it's before Weezer heads out on tour. You can check Funko's site for updates.
Before heading out on tour, Weezer will headline Inkcarceration 2020 with blink-182.
