One of the things about Funko's Pop! Vinyl line is that they really went out of their way to touch on as much as possible-- while video games seem to be ignored so far, they did tap musicians like Ozzy Osbourne as well as Run DMC, Public Enemy, and, of course, Elvis. (Isn't there something wonderful about all these guys being placed in the same toy line?) Ozzy's look is a little more modern, with longer, straight hair, his round glasses, and a coat which I gotta say I don't recognized. (I also don't profess to be an expert on the many looks of the Prince of Darkness here.)
One of the dangers-- or advantages-- of this 4-inch figure format is that it smooths out any rough edges, and Ozzy has a lot of jagged edges. The figure is undeniably cute, with a subtle bump on his head for a nose, no visible mouth (much like Hello Kitty) and a smattering of accessories like rings, a necklace, and his boots. It's undoubtedly Ozzy but it's really weird to think of the guy who's known for some eerie rock and being the face of an entire genre of music to much of the USA as an adorable plastic figure.
With only head articulation, Ozzy is effectively a nice desk accessory or statue, and doesn't make much of a plaything. I don't think Ozzy would enjoy you playing with him anyway, but it's a really neat stylized figure which would look good hanging around your stereo or (assuming you're old enough to have any) CD collection. Do kids still have CDs? I assume so. Here's hoping future releases include Alice Cooper and Devo! Funko's off to a great start with this range.
