Yesterday Linkin Park were awarded with the double platinum award for LIVING THINGS having sold 200.000 copies in Germany. BURN IT DOWN also went platinum with 300.000 copies sold as MusikMarkt.de reports. The site also reports that 4-track digital single of CASTLE OF GLASS will be released TODAY and LIVING THINGS + on March 29th.
Nendoroids, made by the Japanese manufacturer ‘Good Smile Company’, are small figures made from plastic. They replicate many different characters and styles, most commonly those found in the anime and manga world. However, they have now branched out into the world of music, with Linkin Park becoming the first ever band to become immortalized in the form of these little figures. A group of mini Nendoroids have been created, one for all six members of the band. Each one has been created in detail to look like mini versions of the Linkin Park members.
Fans will recognise Chester Bennington, Joe Hahn, Mike Shinoda, Brad Delson and Rob Bourdon. Each one of the characters has been delicately created with their distinctive features, in order to mark them out from the rest. They would make great decorations to have around the home and show off to family and friends when they come round for dinner or to play on partycasino.com/. Each figure is 2.6 inches tall and the set also comes with a mini stage. This is complete with a Linkin Park logo and when it is all assembled, it looks pretty professional. Fans can buy this great little collection from online retailers like Amazon, who are selling them for $80+. They would make great Christmas presents, but usually sell out fast so it is well worthwhile snapping them up as soon as possible.
For fans of Linkin Park, these are great little items to own. If they go down well, perhaps more figures will be made for other bands and the market for Nendoroids will only get bigger. If demand is high enough, then it is likely that more will be made and collectors will rejoice, as well as fans who would jump at the chance to own something like this.
Looks like the rumors have been TRUE. Mike has just confirmed that the song will be hitting radios on April 16th and that we will soon be able to find parts of it on LinkinPark.com!

Like it has been reported to us Chester visited dying teen Kyle Rodas yesterday at his home. This is a really moving video I’m so happy Chester fullfilled the boy’s dream.
Yesterday we were all moved by Kyle’s story and his battle with brain cancer and spread the word about his last wish to meet Linkin Park, Ozzy Osbourne and Green Day. In less than 24 hours Ozzy responded saying he’ll visit him after his European Tour. And not only that but Linkin Park’s own Rob Bourdon visited him in his home. In Wednesday Chester will pay him a visit too.
ARLETA, Calif. (KTLA) — Band members from Linkin Park and rock star Ozzy Osbourne have reached out to help fulfill the wish of a 14-year-old boy dying from cancer in Arleta.
Kyle Rodas was diagnosed with brain cancer in October. He has since lost most of his sight, his speech is extremely limited and he depends entirely on his parents to take care of him at their home.
On Monday, Oscar Rodas and Marty Valle shared their son’s story, and told KTLA that it would be a dream come true if Kyle could meet one of his favorite rock bands, including, Linkin Park, Green Day or Ozzy Osbourne.
Less than 24 hours after the story aired, Ozzy Osbourne placed a call to the cancer-stricken teen, saying he plans to visit him at his home when he returns from his tour in Europe this summer.
Kyle’s parents say their son was overjoyed when Ozzy called and Ozzy told him to “hang in there.”
Later in the day, KTLA received word that the drummer from Linkin Park went to visit Kyle, and on Wednesday, the lead singer will visit him.
Friends have set-up an account for Kyle at Bank of the West Acct# 653251041.
