JEAN ROLLIN OFFICIAL "WEIRD WOBBLER" BOBBLEHEAD! (Figure #1 of 250!)
Cult Collectibles is proud to announce the official “Weird Wobbler” bobblehead figure of cult French director Jean Rollin! Noted for his unusual and visually striking surrealist/horror films, Jean Rollin’s work continues to enthrall the imagination of film fans throughout the world.
“I’ve been an intense fan of Rollin’s for over two decades,” states Cult Collectibles’ owner Mark Jason Murray, “and have worked quite a bit in trying to help promote Rollin's work in that time. So it’s a great honor to be able to pay tribute to him in this way.“
While Rollin was also a prolific fiction writer, it’s his extraordinary work as writer and director of some of the most visually striking fantastique films ever created that has gained him legions of fans. Rollin’s use of lighting, location, eroticism and vampires makes viewing his work an unmistakably unique experience. Films such as THE NUDE VAMPIRE (1970), REQUIEM FOR A VAMPIRE (1973), LIPS OF BLOOD (1975), LIVING DEAD GIRL (1982) and NIGHT OF THE HUNTED (1980) are just a few examples of some of his most interesting films.
“Rollin’s work seems to have these cycles of new discovery by the masses about every ten years and 2012 began yet another cycle with the release of his films to Blu-ray and even streaming on Netflix. My introduction to Rollin’s work twenty years ago was through washed out and unsubtitled VHS copies of his films which were nearly impossible to acquire. Now his films are showing up on Turner Classic Movies. Rollin’s work is like a fine wine that continues to get better with age,” states Murray.
The figure, fully authorized by Rollin's estate, depicts the director during the most prolific and popular period of his career, accompanied by a film camera and pipe standing on a base representing Rollin's favorite French beach which made several iconic appearances in his films.
