I saw two sets of Queen figurines on Ebay recently. One was the early Queen with "Young Freddie" and the other set was "Live Aid Era" Queen. Frankly, they didn't look worth owning (as much as the "Freddie Nesting Dolls" -- EWWWWW!). Are these knock-offs or an official QP product?

This just brings me back to my plea to McFarlane toys...

So that plea never came off then? Shame...

I heard that they had the rights to do Queen figures. Then a couple months after I heard that, They had a poll on their website asking what rock act they should do next Queen featured... Motley Crue won and now their figures are on the way.

There are more Beatles figures coming out this year, I don't know if they're for Yellow Submarine or not though.

I've got both sets of the Yellow Sub figures. There should be a Sgt Pepper series out in the "near future" (according to the toy company).
The Hamilton figures are FAB!!!

I haven't seen a picture of them, but I'm sure they'll be similar to the other McFarlane figures.
(If you want to collect a really good set, check out the Hamilton dolls -- they came out in 2001 for $14.95 each and are worth over $125 each now! The detail on the dolls are amazing, down to the expressions and eye colour!)
