Lego have teamed up with movies and TV shows, plus have their own line of themed sets, but what about music?
There are a number of general pop, rock music themed sets and minifigures. However there are not many actual rock and pop icons that have been immortalised in Lego (officially that is).
Here we list 6 official and 6 non-official Lego rock and pop Minifigure icons:
1 to 4. The Beatles: John, Paul, George and Ringo
Top of the list is the new Beatles Yellow Submarine set. Take a surreal trip under the seas in the LEGO® version of the Yellow Submarine from the iconic 1968 animated musical fantasy film inspired by The Beatles. The set consists of over 550 LEGO bricks including the 4 minifigures representing John, Paul, George and Ringo.

There were a few virtual Lego Rock stars within the Lego Rock Band video game. These included: David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Queen and Blur. Unfortunately they were not made into official physical minifigures.
The above are custom and available at minifigures.com
10. Peter Gabriel (Available here)
The master of disguise: Peter Gabriel’s mind-blowing masks, and costumes from the 70’s. It’s nearly impossible to not admire Gabriel’s pioneering weirdness, and chameleon-like ability to look like anyone but himself.
11. Phil Collins (Available here)
Complete with receding hairline, tambourine and sweatbands, what more could you ask for.
12. Ozzy Osbourne
“I got rabies shots for biting the head off a bat but that’s OK – the bat had to get Ozzy shots.”
