Really, it's just my opinion, but I feel like there was plenty to work with here. I appreciate the fact that Rollin has his own action figure type thingy, but I just thought it could've been way hipper than this. I own the Cult Collectibles Rudy Ray Moore as Dolemite Wobbly Bobbly Thingy, and it's great. But that's because Rudy Ray Moore himself was a character. He was a great character who deserved to have his own action figure. He was a movie star. Jean Rollin was a man behind the scenes. I can appreciate the effort Cult Collectibles put into creating a toy based on him, but DAMN! It could've been so much cooler! Jean Rollin created some of the most unique imagery slapped onto celluloid. What the hell? Slap some of that imagery onto the figure created in his tribute.
No offense to the folks at Cult Collectibles, but hear me out. This is a niche market here. Not many people will be looking for an item like this. Speaking for myself, I truly appreciate the effort. Hell, I'll probably even order one. I'm just saying. I've seen your other products. I own the Dolemite figure. I've considrerd purchasing the Fulci figure. They all seem to represent what their heads wobble and bobble for. Pretty cool stuff. Sorry, but I was just hoping for more when it came to my man, Rollin. But as far as I'm concerned, the figure just looks like some random guy. Regardless, I think I'm still gonna go for it. The fact that a figure exists for such a true Cult Collectible is pretty hard to resist.
I just hope that in the future the folks at Cult Collectibles will keep this in mind. I would love to see a Jess Franco figure or a Paul Naschy figure done properly. That means lesbian vampires or lycanthropes or blood or guts or sex or violence included. Just my opinion. None of it really matters. Our government is shut down and I'm concerned about some toy right now. Oh well. God bless America.
