Dear Zappa.com,
This may be a touch geeky but I'm sure I'm not alone when I say I'd love a Frank Zappa figure. Currently it would be an easy money spinner for you to allow POP vinyl figures such as this one:

https://www.funko.com/search?q=Hendrix& ... mi-hendrix

All that would be required is your approval and thumbs up to a suitable POP figure.

It would also be amazing to see other members of Frank's band allowed as well. I could give you a massive list but ultimately the main figure would be an actual Frank Zappa.

There's been several statues, clay figure pipes, busts etc over the years (all of them extremely limited and impossible to find.)

Imagine the joy that fans would have with a cool Pop of the great Frank Zappa on there desk or sitting with there music collections. Hey it could be a nice feature for another box set perhaps?

I'm sure I'm not the only one out there wishing for a Zappa figure and I think you'll find it would be a huge success.

Just putting it out there and hoping.
Sean.

PS. I'm certain a Captain Beefheart POP would go well also however I understand there could be rights issues etc with that one.

Wow, that must have brought tears to the eyes loosing that terrific Mothers figure. What a loss. Sadly they are very rare and hard to come by. The best I have seen of late was a Frank Zappa pipe? Strange being that Frank was a cigarette's man.

Love the cardboard version though. It reminds me of Spinal Taps 'Back From The Dead' album which featured a cardboard pop up of the band to take photos and share showing all the places around the world that Spinal Tap popped up.(Cheesy pun being that it was in fact a pop up band cut out.)

Maybe some playing cards will satisfy until you get your figures...
