Metallica Lady Justice Rock Iconz On Tour Statue Announced

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…

Metallica “Enter Sandman” #1 College Football Entrance

College Football traditions go back over 100 years and are steeped in ceremony.  One of the most exciting experiences of any game played on Saturday is when the home team entries their stadium prior to kick off. We were pleased to see that heavy metal, which is so often marginalized in pop culture, and even in the music industry, won the top spot in a recent Fanbuzz.com poll. Voted #1 over traditions from powerhouse schools’ like USC, Clemson and Notre Dame was VA Tech’s team entrance to “Enter Sandman” from Metallica. The entire stadium jumps up and down as the James Hetfield belts out the Metallica Black Album classic. It’s crazy to see…

In the KnuckleBonz Blog is an image of the VA Tech lunch pale with James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammitt and Robert Trujillo circa 2019…

KnuckleBonz is working with Metallica on their new Rock Iconz Ltd. Edition statue set that captrures the band from live moments from their most recent Hardwired to Self-Destruct World Tour.

Heavy Metal Happy Birthday James Hetfield of Metallica

A Heavy Metal Happy Birthday James Hetfield of Metallica…

Vocalist/guitarist James Hetfield is the undisputed riff-lord of modern hard rock and heavy metal. Born on August 3, 1963 in Downey, California, Hetfield is also recognized as the king of downpicking and revered as one of the most charismatic front men in music, with a unique style and the ability to roar the likes of “Battery,” sing hits like “Nothing Else Matters,” and connect effortlessly with audiences via his personal, heartfelt, and humorous stage-banter.

Born in Los Angeles during 1981, but bred and nurtured in California’s Bay Area, Metallica (James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, and Robert Trujillo) rewrote the heavy metal and hard rock playbooks, in the process becoming a worldwide musical phenomenon. With millions of album sales and streams in addition to thousands of sold-out venues around the globe, Metallica’s music has spanned the cult-classic prototype thrash of their 1983 debut album, Kill ‘Em All, to their wildly accessible hard rock classic, 1991’s The Black Album. Now approaching 40 years as a band, the guys continue to be one of the top touring acts in the world, with over two million fans attending the 150+ shows on their recent WorldWired tour.

Now shipping is our 1st ever Metallica Rock Iconz® Limited Edition Statues for Metallica. James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo sold seperately or as a set

KnuckleBonz Knews – All the Latest on Rock Iconz, 3D Vinyl and On Tour Collectibles

KnuckleBonz® Knews Rock Iconz®, 3D Vinyl® and On Tour® Collectibles

Things are slowly  improving on the import/export  side of things, but we have a few products that are still being impacted by port closures and production delays during the height of the Covid Outbreak at end of last year at to start 2021. Here’s the latest…

Twister Sister Rock Iconz for Dee Snider and Jay Jay French production is drawing to a close and we hope to wrap by month’s end. This is one of the teams that was most disrupted by Covid. We will see how the overseas ports are fairing as Twisted Sister Rock Iconz start their journey to us here in the US. Pre-Covid, this was about a 3 week journey. However, for some perspective, some of our productions that finished in November 2020 have yet to land to us here in the US. Will keep posted once production officially wraps.

Scorpions “Blackout 3D Vinyl” is at the same point as the Twisted Sister production statues above. We should be wrapping up production over the 2  or 3 weeks and then begin the trip to us here in the USA. Stay tuned for a more definitive ship date once Scorpions “Blackout” 3D Vinyl leaves the overseas ports.

Ghost Nameless (Ghoul White) Guitar Rock Iconz   sold-thru the initial inventory  is now on back order. Production is going well on new Nameless Ghoul statues and we should have more of this limited edition late Spring/Summer. Ghost Nameless Ghoul Black Guitar and Papa Nihil are running low on inventory so don’t delay if you want a shot at these Rock Iconz Limited Editions. We have no plans to produce additional statues on these designs. That’s a wrap!

Tony Iommi Rock Iconz Limited Edition sold-through the 1st wave of production as soon as hit the US warehouse. Iommi is also now on back order. Looking like late Spring/Summer for more Riff Lord Tony Iommi. Don’t miss out of our 1st Iommi Rock Iconz design from circa 1973 Black Sabbath era.

Metallica Rock Iconz Limited Edition Statues for James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammet and Robert Trujillo are in the US warehouse. We have been asked by the Metallica camp to hold shipping until inventory gets to the EU warehouses. This will allow us to ship at the same time worldwide to all pre-orders. We hope to have good news on shipping on these design very soon. #staytuned

Pantera “Far Beyond Driven” 3D Vinyl 1st wave of production is on the container ship and approaching the US Ports. Hopefully, we have no delays at customes and can get the this into our warehouse quickly. Hope to have updates soon.

On Tour AC/DC Cannon,  Highway to Hell Road Case, Scorpions Roadcase and KISS Roadcase w/ Stage Sign  wrapped production back in November are still being impacted by the shipping ports slow-down. The last update we have on this Container Ship is that it should hit the USA ports in April. We then need to clear US customs to get all to our KnuckleBonz warehouse to ship to pre-orders. If you are interested in any of the KnuckleBonz products, it would wise to get in the pre-order queue. We will more than likely be out of stock right after we check into our warehouse.

Randy Rhoads 3 Rock Iconz Limited Edition Statue 1st wave of production has finished and is being put through final QA to be packed to ship put to us here in the US. With no unforeseen delay at the ports, Randy is on-track to hit the original May/June ships dates.

AC/DC Angus Young and Brian Johnson Rock Iconz Casting is complete and the statues are going through the cleaning and polishing step of production. This sets up for priming. No disruptions so far this AC/DC production and we remain on schedule for our Fall 2021 ship date.

QUEEN Rock Iconz Statues for Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon  are in production and all is going well in the casting process. Still very early in production as these only announced a week or so ago. Will keep you updated through the Spring on this production.

We have heard from many on via our customer service to express your concerns over the shipping delays. Believe us, we are as stressed as all of you and look forward to the day we can be back to Pre-Covid production cycles and delivery. We continue to deal with many challenges and are so proud of all of our customer service and productions teams as they march ahead to create all the KnuckleBonz products. However, we are most proud of all of you for hanging with KnuckleBonz during this time…You Superfans are the best!!! You are only reason we are now in our 18th year.
