The Bob Marley 1/6 scale action figure celebrity doll portrays him as himself, a Jamaican singer, songwriter, musician, and cultural icon. Sadly, Marley died of cancer at only 36 years old in 1981. He fathered 11 children, sold 20 million records (another 55 million since) , promoted social democracy and Rastafarian, and introduced his unique and thoughtful reggae music to the world. The doll was released by Win.c studio in 2023 and is titled “Legendary Pacifist Singer (WC002)”.
There is a new Bob Marley movie coming out on February 14, 2024. Trailer for Bob Marley: One Love on YouTube
The Bob Marley figure comes with two sculpts; singing and relaxed. The relaxed neutral Bob Marley head with open eyes comes installed on the body in the main box and a smaller separate box contains the singing sculpt with closed eyes and open mouth.
