DIO monument to be built in Kavarna, Bulgaria

The decision to erect this monument was taken by the municipal administration, with the most active proponents being Kavarna Mayor Tsonko Tsonkov as well as leading journalists, musicians and singers. The monument is to be built in the town park and will mark the creation of the so-called Walk Of Rock. The model of the monument is ready and was displayed during the three-day Kavarna Rock Fest. In the past few years, Dio came to Bulgaria five times to give concerts and took an active part in the campaign for liberating the Bulgarian nurses held in prison in Libya for eight years.

The artists behind the project are sculptors Alexander Petrov and Krasimir Krastev - Lomsky, while the painting is being handled by Ivan Stratiev.

You'll have to make do with this:




Due late 2010 and yours for the princely sum of $115 plus shipping.

Easily one of their worst yet, I'd say.

Yeah that Rock Iconz figure is a bit off in the face. In fact it doesn't even really look like him. The pose and the clothes they put on are fine but that face is just blah.

Also, $115 bucks for that? Are they serious? It should at least come to life and sing a few Dio tunes at that price.

Not sure why they put the price up. The older ones, most of which are better, were $99.

I can see it a little bit in the face, but it still could be much better

I'd like to see the older ones that you refer to, Ravenheart.

Don't you think it's pretty obvious? His death was fairly recent, so they're gonna try and suck as much cash as they can from it. The company's mentality probably is that people will be willing to pay the extra 15 bucks as the statue a tribute to someone who passed recently.

I don't think that's it. They've increased the price of all of them to $115. Not just this one. My guess would be it's to make up the short-fall on the really shitty ones that aren't selling.
