I collect, I reject: Remember Jello Biafra?

Smiths fans should worry about a cover version on a John Lewis advert. How much of a schmuck must you feel if you'd bought into the Dead Kennedys worldview, only to find this sort of thing being officially available:

No, no. That isn't a Jello Biafra Bobblehead. It's, erm, a Throbblehead:
Jello Biafra, the original political punk and former ringmaster of Dead Kennedys, is now a throbblehead.

This figure capturing his look from the 80s is limited to 1000 numbered units, stands at 7 inches tall, and is made of super strong polyresin.

Jello is accurately sculpted right down to the piercing glare, star belt buckle and Alternative Tentacles tee.
Unfortunately, they couldn't manage to sculpt the dignity, as it was too small to scale to this model.
