Frank the Robot handmade double face pendant realised in sterling silver 925 polished and tarnished! A very special Queen memorabilia and a unique jewel of high quality! Back side of pendant engraved! On 28 October 1977 Queen fans got to see a peculiar album sleeve for the sixth album News of the world. A giant robot on a green background holds the lifeless and bloody bodies of Brian May and Freddie Mercury in his hand, while John Deacon and Roger Taylor fall out of its grip.
The image exudes a very strange feeling for a few reasons. First of all, the facial expression of the robot, later called Frank, raises many questions. Did he kill the members of Queen?
Why did he do this? He doesnt look bloodthirsty at all, but rather sad and repentant... Roger Taylor is a huge science fiction fan.
The cover of an old sci-fi magazine had always stuck with him. In 1954, the October issue of the magazine Astounding Science Fiction featured the same sad robot that would later appear on the cover of News of the world. Today Frank, the robot has become an iconic image.
In 2017, the record celebrated its 40 years since it first came out and the sad robot was called to action once more. This time as a pawn in the Queen edition of Monopoly, in a video for All dead, all dead and he even opened the shows for Queen + Adam Lambert as a moving image. And now Frank turned into a silver pendant! Be a part of Frank's next adventure..
