Alejandro Jodorowsky and Unbox Industries announce a series of statues based off his cult films.

ABKCO Films a division of ABKCO Music & Records, Inc. and Unbox Industries are proud to announce a series of licensed limited edition figurines based on the film works of one of the world's most controversial and provocative film makers, Alejandro Jodorowsky.  The series of four figurines are based on the characters from El Topo and Holy Mountain.

The first figure released is  El Topo (The Mole) from the landmark cult film of the same name that began the Midnight Movie phenomena of the counterculture 1970s.  Classic Americana and avant-garde European sensibilities meet Zen Buddhism and the Bible as master gunfighter and cosmic mystic El Topo, played by Jodorowsky,  must defeat his four sharp shooting rivals on an ever increasing path to allegorical self-enlightenment and surreal resurrection.  The statue, made of polystone, a full 14 inches in height and distress brown in color,  features exquisite detail and is packaged in a specially crafted wood embossed box.  Each piece bears the replica signature of Alejandro Jodorowsky.

The highly respected sculptor Andrea Blasich worked closely with ABKCO and Jodorowsky to ensure the figurines are as realistic as possible to their characters from the films.

There's enough interest for this seemingly very niche item to exist yet not enough interest to drum up support for a sequel?

Very nice. I just can't justify spending 200 bucks on this though.

I'd pay $200 for the Book of Dune! These? Not so much...

Dan, thanks for the content--but honestly this just seems like a press release. You work for Unbox, don't you? Or am I mistaken? If I'm not, can you please refrain from posting things with a personal commercial agenda? It borders on spam. Thanks.

Turns out he is a designer there.
