A new range of Nick Cave dolls will go on sale at this year’s ComicCon event.
The dolls have been produced by LA-based pop artist Plasticgod and will be available in a series of six different models, each tailored to a specific Cave song.
Pitchfork reports that each toy will be on sale from July 9 and retail for $40 in a limited edition of 200.
“Red Right Hand”, “Into My Arms”, “Tupelo”, “Ship Song” and two dolls for “Babe, You Turn Me On“, one of which glows in the dark.
In other intriguing Cave miscellany, earlier this year teamed up with Australian skateboarding company Fast Times to produce his own official skateboard.
More recently, Cave and Warren Ellis released their latest film soundtrack.
The score for Loin Des Hommes is the duo’s latest soundtrack collaboration, which previously included The Proposition (2005), The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford (2007), The Road (2009) and Lawless (2012).
A compilation of their previous soundtrack work, White Lunar, was released in 2009.
Loin Des Hommes (Far From Men) is French drama starring Viggo Mortensen and directed by David Oelhoffen.
