Roky Erickson gets his Throbblehead

Roky Erickson, of the most excellent 13th Floor Elevators, now has his own throbblehead. This figure capturing Roky’s look circa 1980, or “The Evil One” era, is limited to 1000 numbered units, stands at 7 inches tall, and is made of polyresin. Displayed in a window box, Roky is accurately sculpted with beard, wild hair and Vanson jacket.

The figures cost $19.95, and can be purchased here

Check out the commercial below with footage of Roky receiving the prototype just before his performance with Billy Gibbons at this year’s SXSW
