Sleep Make Dopesmoker Toys Now
If you love Sleep’s Dopesmoker, love Arik Roper’s cover art for the 2012 reissue of the album, and have eighty-five bucks to burn, this will probably be of interest to you: Unibox Industries is making figures of the dope smoking Sand People/Jawa hybrids that adorn the 2012 reissue’s cover. Y’know, these guys:
Says the product description of the figures:
“Arik Roper has worked closely with Unbox Industries to ensure that the Weedian perfectly captures the essence of his iconic art. Cast in soft vinyl and meticulously hand painted, the Weedian stands approximately 24 cm tall from his foot to the tip of his vape tank. Each figure is packaged in a beautiful gatefold box taken from the cover art.”
And here photos of the product itself… it looks really detailed and quite beautiful:
The figures will ship in January. You can more info and pre-order yourself one here.
