Soon You’ll Be Able to Buy a Toy Version of Nick Cave
Diehard Nick Cave fans will soon be able to own a miniaturized version of the Bad Seeds frontman.
Plasticgod -- an L.A.-based pop artist and toymaker -- has created a limited-edition series of vinyl toys emulating Cave’s likeness. Each of the six toys is based on one of Cave’s songs: “Babe, You Turn Me On,” “The Ship Song,” “Red Right Hand,” “Into My Arms,” and “Tupelo.” Check out photos of each design below:
"Babe, You Turn Me On"

The series will make its debut at Comic Con in San Diego, which runs next week from July 9-12. Plasticgod will produce 200 of each of the six toys, with each going for $40.
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds released their most recent full-length, Push the Sky Away, in 2013. Back in May, Cave and Warren Ellis of the Bad Seeds composed the soundtrack for the David Olehoffen-film, Far From Men.
Earlier this year, the singer, composer and author published The Sick Bag Song, an epic poem that chronicled his 2014 North American tour on airplane sick bags. It follows his 2009 novel, The Death of Bunny Munro.
