Colani action figures (yes, the famed designer, Professor Luigi Colani) have been created by Kojun, a Korean figure sculptor to celebrate the works of the "design superstar". Colani was famous in the 70s for his bio-inspired designs, and to honor his talent, a Japanese website commissioned Kojun to design 10 12" Colani action figures.

While the professor is now 80 years old, the Luigi Colani action figures resemble him in his heyday, dramatic brown mustache, cigar and all. The clothing for the Colani action figures was designed by HA-RUE Creative.

"The figures are dressed in the typical all white Colani uniform of pullover, scarf, trousers and clogs," says. "The figure also wears a Colani designed SwissAir coat, and is accessorized with a Colani watch, cigar, and a 1973 Colani multi-functional chair. The figure comes with a display base, a numbered certificate, and a dedicated presentation box."
