The Iggy Pop bobblehead (Aggronautix)
Iggy Pop, the permanently shirtless singer and frontman of legendary protopunk band The Stooges, is getting his own bobblehead.
The 65-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer is being honored with a limited edition 7-inch bobblehead--or "throbblehead"--that looks just as frightening as the leathery singer himself. Thankfully, Aggronautix, the company behind the figurines, is producing just 1,000 of the poly-resin bobbleheads, which will retail for $24.95 a, uh, pop. (They're now taking preorders for shipping in early October.)
Pop--whose given name is James Newell Osterberg Jr.--is not the first rocker to receive the Aggronautix "throbblehead" treatment.
Even colorful dub icon Lee "Scratch" Perry has his own bobble--or, perhaps more accurately, "wobblehead."
