After the fantastic success with the Lego Blackmore, other toy companies want a piece of the pie. Above is Playmobil’s version.

April 1st comes early this year!
Classic!! Looks more like a medieval super hero. I wonder what Sir Richard thinks of it
Get ready for the uproar from all the sad people!
I wonder if Mr B gets royalties for the use of his likeness?
Just needs a little lute
Looks like the ”Syrup” had a thimble on it.
Need to replace sword for hurdie gurdie.
That’s pretty cool….LOL
It’s only completely authentic if the hairpiece comes off!
He needs a companion. Screaming Lord Sutch.
It’s even got the detachable wig
I’ve decided. I want one! I can put it between my Blackmore’s Night Nesting Dolls and My Lego Ritchie.
Anything for a buck. Must be hanging out with Kiss. Long Live the Morse Era!!
You people never quit, you continue to hack on the guy that created your favorite band, when is enough enough,would there be the same sarcasm if it was a IG or RG clone?? Pathetic!
Hacking??? Hey Bigger Al, he is hacking himself. There is probably no bigger Purple/Blackmore fan than myself. I have been a totally committed BN follower due to TMIB being involved. BUT, it’s time to drop the lute and strap on the axe. I have thoroughly enjoyed the BN journey. Truly. But it has run it’s course. Truly. It’s time for a total Ritchie Record. Blues, Rock, Classical, Jazz, Combination…..something creative and different than the same old ferries and sparkle dust crap….
No need to get upset, it’s all part of the time honoured tradition of extracting the Michael, of which Ritchie himself is a master.
I dont care about people making jokes on missing hair et all. They might be bold or really fat themselves. Did they score like Blackmore? Think not.
As long as I have the undying JOY of listening to a wealth in music he made. Blackmore does not give a shit. Why should I give a shit?
Except for a positive glitch here and there I ve just to wait a bit longer….
And then we ll see what is remaining and what not.
You hit it minutely. Basically it’s the music. DUUUUHHHHH! But pathetically when one has ‘the music in him’ that we know exists; he becomes the target of being chastised for not producing what he is capable of and gifted to perform. It’s a human error we all contain. TMIB has shirked his duty. His fans have been ignored. Simple as it may seem, we miss his Strat. He shoves his lute at us. We are displeased. We accept his direction out of respect. Our patience runs thin. We want MORE. He gives less. Some take it out on present PURPLE. At least they produce ROCK. Live and in the Studio. TMIB keeps on cramming LUTE crap down our throat. Bring the prankster that he is, is it just a long running joke that has gone too far???? I think so. So, do as Joe Satriani did. Shave your head and strap on your friggin’ guitar and do what got you your credentials. RIP IT TO SHREDS!!!!
You re bipolar again.
On one hand you are exited when he comes with BN, on the other…..see above.
I ll be surprised if he would return. It seems very unlikely now.
He’ll never return to proper full on rock–his heart is just not there for it. Anyway his musical genius still shines through in his music now and he is still a joy to listen and watch. The music of Blackmore’s Night is rather repetitive now but like I said Blackers can still deliver and he doesn’t even need a stratocaster and a 200 watt Marshall amp to do that! It’s just that unique style he has which very few guitarists have
Return to rock, I meant to say.
It get’s worse – I’ve just seen the Playmobil Joe Lynn Turner… where shall I post the pic…?
Not bipolar. Just honest. Yes, I enjoy BN due to being a MIB fan. I respect and enjoy what he chooses to do. BUT, I don’t hold back my yearning for him to blow us away with a last ditch effort of Srat-attack. He is still capable, but is he able? Only the Pants he has given to Candice knows for sure. Meanwhile we are stuck with the music of the ‘tights’. Does that make me bipolar? I think not. Just happily frustrated….
@20 Put him next to Blackers in the pic and you have almost a Rainbow reunion
One wonders why they didn’t include his ‘ball & chain” and exchange the sword with a lute…..
Why dont they make copies of candice and Tawney, Amy and so on?
All that old geezers!!!
Isnt it funny that JLT still gigs and makes lots of rcords? : )
Today I found this ad for some kinda fitness thing and it used the Back In Black cover done by Joe Lynn Turner!!!
