KnuckleBonz Production Update “Rocktober” 2020 – Rock Iconz
Here’s a quick production update for Live KnuckleBonz projects. All projects currently remain on schedule for their respective ship windows. However, navigating all the things needed to bring the Rock Iconz®, 3D Vinyl® and ON Tour series to you is more challenging than ever in the world we have today. We just turned the calendar on the Fall season in our hemisphere Fall runs till Dec 22nd.
We are still tracking to ship out “Pre-Orders” to customers late Fall, in the mid-December timeframe. This is of course subject to getting the products through US Customs and to our warehouse and without any delays. Unfortunately, we have no control over that process. We will give you updates over the coming weeks.
GHOST – The Rock Iconz® statues and On Tour Set are in the final stages of detailing. Papa Nihil, the Ghoul Guitarists and the Stage Set and now being fitted with the custom packing to help keep the statues safe on their way to you. Papa Nihil is one of our more elaborate productions in some time with all the detailing needed in both his robe and the makeup.
Tony Iommi – Riff master Tony Iommi has completed is in the final stages of paint on the figure. Production on his guitar is complete and will be added to the figure to set up for packing in the coming week. The statue base is also complete and going through the hand numbering process now. We think Sabbath and Iommi fans will dig the DOOM this Rock Iconz statue evokes.
Scorpions – The Scorpions Rudolf Schenker, Klaus Meine and Matthias Jabs are in the final stages of statue casting. These elements are going thru touch up and being primed to begin final painting. We will be shooting a new Live video of these Rock Iconz this month that will take you back to 1989 and the Moscow Music Festival that inspired these designs. The “Blackout” 3D Vinyl and On Tour road case has begun painting and is scheduled to wrap up production along with the Scorpions Rock Iconz set.
Bon Scott – Bon Scott, former front man on AC/DC, Rock Iconz statue has begun final painting and has been fitted with the custom shipping packing. The package design is approved and will be going to print shortly. AC/DC fans have been energized with the announcement of their new recording. All of us here are very excited here to have the opportunity to bring you Bon Scott in the Rock Iconz Series.
KiSS “On Tour” Sign and Roadcase – The “On Tour” road case and the KISS sign are in the final stages of color production. We have been back and forth on our approvals for the package design, but happy to report we just got the final OK from Gene and Paul. All systems are go to set up for final packing ahead of loading into cartons to begin shipping to our US warehouse. This is going to be a great addition to any collection that has our KISS Alive and “Hotter Than Hell” Rock Iconz.
AC/DC – The “On Tour” Road Cases and “For This about to Rock” Cannon have completed most of the painting and are going through final detailing steps. After this, each statue gets in line for certificate printing and hand numbering ahead of being placed in the color boxes in preparation for shipping. Will be shooting some new live video of these limited editions in the coming days.
Twisted Sister – Dee and Jay Jay are in the color stages and moving through that process. Painting is going well, but these statues are very time consuming. Doing our best to get the subtlety of the Twister Sister makeup just right. As most of you will know, the portrait of our Rock Iconz is only about the size of thumbnail.
Metallica – All statues are well into casting and will soon begin the process of refining each part in preparation for paint priming. After a quick QA, painting will begin. The individual box designs were recently completed and approved by Metallica HQ. Those are in the queue to got to print in the coming days.
Thanks to all for your continued support for KnuckleBonz…we turned 17 years old in 2020. We have stayed full throttle during the lock down and have lots of new stuff to announce to you between now and the end of 2020. #staytuned
