Yeah what does Dio have to do with Bulgaria?
I guess it's cool regardless. Those rock icon figures are kinda cool, but not worth close to $100 imo. More like 20-30 bucks.

Hell, I have an 18" Somewhere In Time Eddie doll that I paid less than $50 for.

Yeah, for like $30 I'd gladly own a small statue/figure of Dio for shelf display. But $115 is absurd.

It's because he was one of the most frequent visitors to Bulgaria in the last few years. It's a country that doesn't get a lot of metal and he was one of the few who toured there.

More importantly for them, he also took part in the campaign to get Bulgarian nurses imprisoned in Afghanistan freed.

It's in that town specifically because that's where the Kavarna Rock Festival is (it's all in the name ), which is the country's biggest. I think their mayor is a metal fan too.

Thanks, I was just about to post the explination myself as to why the statue was being put there.

As if all his great music wasn't enough, all these causes Dio was involved with just further his legend and how great of a person he was.
