Roky Erickson Throbblehead Figure Announced

Roky Erickson, founding father of psychadelic rock gods The 13th Floor Elevators, has been immortalized in the throbblehead kingdom. This figure capturing Erickson's look circa 1980, or "The Evil One" era, is limited to 1000 numbered units, stands at 7 inches tall, and is made of super strong polyresin. Displayed in a window box, Erickson is accurately sculpted right down to the grizzly beard, wild hair and Vanson jacket. The figures cost $19.95, and orders will ship immediately.

All Throbblehead figures are distributed by MVD Entertainment Group - a company specializing in music-related distribution since 1986 - and DKE Toys - a wholesale distributor of urban / vinyl / designer art / objects / toys / figurines.

Roky Erickson is the ninth person to be polyresinated by Aggronautix. In May of 2009, the company launched with a highly popular G.G. Allin "1991" figure, which was limited to 2000 numbered units.
