The figures are specially packed in a black and gold box that was made to resemble Soundwave. The package also comes with removable cassette tapes which also works as the set’s certificate of authenticity.
Together, Chester Bennington, Mike Shinoda, Joe Hahn, Rob Bourdon, Dave “Phoenix” Farrell, and Brad Delson make up Linkin Park. The group was first formed in 1996 and with their first album entitled Hybrid Theory, the band skyrocketed to fame.
