Roky Erickson, founding father of psychadelic rock gods The 13th Floor Elevators, has been immortalized in the throbblehead kingdom.

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 super strong polyresin.

Displayed in a window box, Roky is accurately sculpted right down to the grizzly beard, wild hair and Vanson jacket.

The figures cost $19.95, and orders will ship immediately.
 
Check out the commercial with footage of Roky receiving the prototype just before his performance with Billy Gibbons at SXSW 2011...
