Legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix has been brought back to life in doll form.
The estate of the Purple Haze rocker, who died in 1970 from drug-related complications, has teamed up with McFARLANE TOYS to produce an action figure of the star, which is due to hit stores next month on 27 November (03) - which would have been Hendrix's 61st birthday.
The six-inch figure, to be sold by music retailers and select toy stores, is dressed in a white fringed vest, blue velvet trousers and scarves tied around its head and one leg.
In addition to accessories including a guitar, amplifiers, guitar pedals, microphone and stand, Hendrix's plastic likeness is shown in front of a section of a concert stage flashing the peace sign.
Prices for the doll will range from $12 (GBP7.50) to $20 (GBP12.50).15/10/2003 21:15
