34 Years of Lady Justice – We Celebrate the Metallica Masterpiece

34 years ago today Metallica release And Justice for All… to both critical and commercial acclaim. The track One would win James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich and Jason Newsted their first Grammy. That same video would break Metallica to a wider audience outside of the thriving Thrash scene of the late 80s and set them on the trajectory that we see today. Sadly, this was the first album after the tragic death of the great Cliff Burton.

We have honored Lady Justice and the And Justice for All album art in our KnuckleBonz 3D Vinyl(R) collector series. “The Lady” stands 12 inches tall and is hand cast and detailed. Only 1988 have been created for Metallica Superfans worldwide.

Order Metallica Lady Justice Ltd. Edition Statute here.

All KnuckleBonz products are officially licensed limited editions. Once a design is SOLD out or retired, it is gone FOREVER, No FoMO.

Rock Hard today!

I’m a ROCKER !!! Phil Lynott Coming to KnuckleBonz

I’m a ROCKER !!!!  Phil Lynott Coming to KnuckleBonz Rock Iconz Ltd. Edition Statue Series.

It’s taken a minute, but Phil Lynott of Thin Lizzy is in production here at the KnuckleBonz Studio. Phil is one of our most requested statues over the 20 years of KnuckleBonz. All our work is officially licensed so we wanted to wait and bring it to you when it could be a full Thin Lizzy production…it is!

Somewhere Cliff Burton is smiling. He loved Phil Lynott and Thin Lizzy.

We think it is possible that even as celebrated at Phil Lynott and Thin Lizzy are, they are underrated. One of the original duel guitar attacks; Thin Lizzy could boogie, swing or play with speed and ferocity like no other. Check out the “UK Tour 75” live record of you don’t believe us.

#staytuned for detail…

Cliff Burton Statue in Production for the KnuckleBonz Rock Iconz Series

If you’ve been out of touch since last Friday, you missed our very exciting announcement that Cliff Burton is coming to the KnuckleBonz Rock Iconz Series.

Pre-Order Here: https://knucklebonz.com/product/cliff-burton-rock-iconz-statue/

The statue is in production currently and we have already had to upsize the production team. It is one of the hottest announcements and launches in 20 years of KnuckleBonz.

Think, Day of the Green, Oakland Coliseum August 31st 1985. That what we were going for in the design. It was a real challenge to capture the fierceness of Cliff live in a stationary piece of art. The Burton Estate and all of us here are super pleased with the result…Cliff Em’ All !

Joining Metallica on stage at the 1985 day at Day of the Green was an amazing lineup that included Scorpions, Raising Force, Yngwie Malmsteen, Ratt and Y&T.

Rock Hard!

KnuckleBonz® Metallica Lady Justice Rock® Iconz On Tour™ Statue has launched and is now available for Pre-Order. This hand cast limited edition will be limited to only 1988 Metallica Superfans worldwide. Lady Justice is affectionally known by the Metallica camp as “Doris” stands 12 inches tall. She towers over the Metallica Rock Iconz Statue set of James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo juts like show does when she appears in Metallica live stage-dress. This beautiful lady first appeared in 1988 as the cover art for Justice For All. This was a big commercial breakthrough for Metallica on the strength of the music video for “One.” The subsequent tour saw a huge step forward is live concert production. If you were there, you’ll  remember the lighting truss swinging down, showering sparks and Lady Justice fell to pieces behind the band as they closed with “…And Justice For All.” There’s great live video of this on  “Live Shit: Binge and Purge”.

Metallica And Justice for All – 33 Years Ago…Forever Tied to Jethro Tull

33 years ago Metallica released the …and Justice for All album. If there be such a thing for an under rated Metallica album, this is it as far as we are concerned here at KnuckleBonz®. We know, we know, there’s been all the talk about the mix of this record recently, but bottom line, this is thrash classic, with musicianship at it’s highest. Every song is strong and is a favorite for Metallica Superfans to this day when AJFA is included in any live set. “Blackened” and “The Shortest Straw” are diamonds and of course there is “One.” Many of the younger Metallica fans can point to that as their intro to the band via that great music video. There was still an MTV that played music videos at this point in 1988. We can’t talk about this era and not mention the comical Grammy faux pas. If you recall, Metallica was nominated for “Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance Vocal or Instrumental” and the Grammys continued their “Cluebaggerness” with the metal scene. The award went to none other than Jethro Tull. Too funny to this day.

A quick heavy metal heads up, we are hard at work on a new Limited Edition Collectible for And Justice for All in our 3D Vinyl ® Collectible Series. The cover art by Stephen Gorman, based on a concept developed by James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich was a dream to design with. Staytuned for updates…

Check out our current Rock Iconz Ltd. Editions for the entire band from the recent Hardwired to Self-Destruct album here.
