Queen - News Of The World Robot KnuckleBonz Rock Iconz Statue

KnuckleBonz creates officially licensed, high-end collectibles that music fans love, since 2003.
Creators of the Rock Iconz® series incl. Freddie Mercury and Brian May Rock Iconz Statues.

What do you think of the idea of creating a News Of The World Robot Rock Iconz Statue?
A new robot Rock Iconz statue would be a perfect complement to the KnuckleBonz Rock Iconz statues of Freddie Mercury and Brian May.
I´m sure Brian May himself and many Queen fans worldwide would love to own a "News Of The World" robot Rock Iconz statue from KnuckleBonz.

KnuckleBonz has already created the album covers of Motörhead (The Warpig) and Megadeth (Peace Sells Vic Rattlehead) as Rock Iconz statues -why not also create the Queen robot of "News Of The World" as a KnuckleBonz statue?

KnuckleBonz added my request for a "News Of The World" robot to their list.
I hope you like the idea. If you are interested, please let it KnuckleBonz know. Thank you very much.

Update:
I have just received the following message from KnuckleBonz:

Love the idea ... Tell Queen fans to post to us on Facebook.
We might consider another Queen series.

Update from KnuckleBonz:
Want to hear what Queen fans might like to see. What band members, what era ...

Personally, I wouldn't buy a statue of any member of the band, but instead something related to Queen.

A possibility could be to launch a statue of the Queen crest, in gold or in silver:

Another possibility: Miniature drum set with following alternatives:



Queen crest (1974-1976)


News of The World robot (1977-78) Black finish on drumkit.


Roger's face (1981) Silver sparkle finish on drumkit


Roger's face (1982) Chrome finish on drum kit




Queen logo (1985) Chrome finish on drum kit


Of course the kit itself, must be exact replicas of the original sets, in color and size. Roger only used the brand Ludwig, Classic Maple kits from 1974-1985, the exception was 1986, when he used the Yamaha Recording Custom set.

Another suggestion:

A complete miniature of a stage set-up, with band members, guitars, lighting rig, podium and drum kit on top. An idea would be adding led lights in the actual lighting rig, and by pressing a button the lights would be on.

Going further, making it possible to light up whenever music is played in the room ;)


Something like this:



The "pizza oven" lighting rig 1979




"Flying saucers" lighting rig 1981





1982 stage set-up and lighting rig




1985 stage set-up and lighting rig


I see they are making something like this already:

A possibility could be a miniature model, exact replica of the Queen Helicopter from their last concert in 1986:

Never heard of them. Just checked their Brian & Freddie attempts.

Maybe the robot would be more within their range....
