The swingin’ ’60s queen of soulful rock ‘n’ roll, Janis Joplin may have died in 1970 at age 27, but her legacy lives on. You probably know Janis for her searing vocal performances on “Piece of My Heart” and “Me and Bobby McGee.” But she was more than that: She was hip, cool, a powerful woman in a time when women didn’t wield much power. She’s an icon who has influenced three decades worth of female performers. And she’s an excellent action figure with her unique look.

And, look at him: He’s a total walking action figure just waiting to happen.
