Molecule8 rolls out collectables portfolio with John Lennon figure

Brand new collectables firm Molecule8 is making its debut in the toy industry, with the help of its first figure in the range, inspired by John Lennon.

Overseen by Yoko Ono and the Lennon estate, the 1/6 scale recreation boasts intricate detailing, which has been molded individually and painted prior to production.

Other initial licenses include Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Ghostbusters, Big Trouble in Little China and Taxi Driver.

“We are both honoured and humbled to have been given the opportunity to develop a line of distinct premium collectibles under the John Lennon brand,” said Vijay Chadha, CEO of Molecule8.

“In addition to the 1/6 scale replica of Mr. Lennon, our team is developing a unique assortment of pieces that will speak to the genius, character, and passions that defined John Lennon, both as an artist and as a man.”

Molecule8’s John Lennon figure is available to pre-order now via the firm’s website.
