Cult Collectibles in association with Donald H. Randell /Dolemite Records are proud to announce the release of the Official “Rudy Ray Moore is DOLEMITE” “Weird Wobbler” bobblehead figure.
Known as “The King of The Party Records” and “The Godfather of Rap”, Rudy Ray Moore is an immeasurably influential legend for his groundbreaking comedy albums and films. In the course of a lifelong career in entertainment, Moore released nearly three dozen comedy and vocal albums along with a handful of legendary films (DOLEMITE, HUMAN TORNADO,PETEY WHEATSTRAW: THE DEVIL’S SON IN LAW,DISCO GODFATHER, etc.) which have sold into the millions. Moore’s most famous character, “Dolemite”, is so well known it has been referenced in hundreds of hip-hop/rap songs and spoofed on such major television shows as MadTV, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Saturday Night Live. Rapper Snoop Dogg even stated, “Without Rudy Ray Moore, there would be no Snoop Dogg, and that’s for real!”
Cult Collectibles’ owner, Mark Jason Murray, worked with Rudy Ray Moore in various capacities for over 15 years and continues to work hard in efforts to keep his legacy alive after his passing in 2008. Outside of operating Moore’s only official website since 1997 (www.rudyraymoore.com), Murray was granted authorization by Moore to write his official biography, a project over a decade in the making. “Rudy was not only my ‘idol’, he was my friend and I have always felt he never achieved the success and recognition that he not only wanted so badly for himself, but genuinely deserved,” states Murray. “I continue to dig deeply into Moore’s life and career and look forward to being able to present this book when completed. Doing a bobblehead figure of Rudy was the main motivator for me to start this company and I am happy that it has become a reality. It’s just another way for me to honor him and his work and also give his fans something special that they can enjoy as well.”
Moore’s manager, Donald H. Randell of Dolemite Records, continues to work in all areas relating to Moore’s legacy. “A Rudy Ray Moore bobblehead is something long overdue! Moore continues to be a source of inspiration for so many comedians, musicians, filmmakers and fans and this is something to help keep that inspirational spirit alive!”
Cult Collectibles has quickly become known for its high quality bobblehead figures which frequently push the limits of the format. “I want every figure I create to really stand out,” states Murray, “and I also wanted this figure to be special and something his fans would really love.” Moore is dressed in a highly stylized “pimp” outfit and ready to launch himself off a rock encrusted base which features his name and “Dolemite” logo bursting from below his feet. “It wasn’t enough for me to just have his head be able to move so his right arm is connected by a spring, enabling it to throw a punch. I obsess over details and even made sure his pants were creased properly.” As if that wasn’t enough to please fans, the figure also includes a free double sided Rudy Ray Moore drink coaster stating “Put Your Drink On It!” (a takeoff of his famous phrase “Put Your Weight On It!”)
