Expensive toys: Nick Cave plastic dolls

Nick Cave has been turned into a toy by the Plasticgod, nom de plume of LA artist Doug Murphy. Six of Cave's songs have been molded into Playmobil alike grumpy characters. Guess which one is pictured above. The toys are limited editions (200 copies) going for $40.00. Far more expensive on the secondary market.

These dolls are art item of sorts. The Brian Wilson and Freddie Mercury action figures that popped up in 2006 merely served as cash-grabs from their fan bases, cocked up by enterprising sales men.
