Jimi Hendrix’s famous Monterey Pop and Woodstock performances will be immortalized with bobbleheads coming out this summer. The Jimi Hendrix estate and Kollectico have partnered to create the toys. The Monterrey Pop bobblehead is modeled after Ed Caraeff’s photo of Hendrix setting his guitar on fire. Janie Hendrix, CEO of Experience Hendrix, explained the meaning of the new pieces in a statement.
“Collector’s items are a form of admiration for a beloved artist or person of interest. They can even represent a special bond. We want those who are devoted to Jimi to have something delightful to add life to the spaces where they live and work. Kollectico has created a beautifully artistic and endearing line that we can all enjoy. Jimi was fun-loving. This is a lighthearted way to appreciate him.”
There will be 1,967 hand-painted and sculpted Monterey bobbleheads housed in collector boxes. All of the figures inspired by both Hendrix events will go on sale on August 21st but can be pre-ordered now.
