Since when did Dio look like a latin Leonard Nemoy?

Ronnie James Dio Today KnuckleBonz unveiled the new Ronnie James Dio Rock Iconz stature. The press release goes on to state "this is a limited-edition statue, with only 3,000 created, making these highly collectible. Each figure in the edition is hand-painted, numbered and includes a certificate of authenticity. This is an officially licensed product, approved and endorsed by Ronnie's wife/manager Wendy Dio and Niji Entertainment. Wendy Dio remarked about the project, "Ronnie would be very proud."

There is only one problem...the statue looks nothing like the late Dio. The tiny figurine looks more like a Latin Leonard Nemoy. I am pretty sure KnuckleBonz took some old Star Trek statues and changed the hands around and voila.

Another problem I have is every piece of crap people are slapping Ronnies name onto to get a sale have him flashing the devil horns. Ronnie himself only threw up the horns at special points during a show and I see nothing special going on here.
