Here’s a quick update of Randy Rhoads Rock Iconz® Production and Shipping.
The 1st wave of production actually wrapped at the end of March and began making it’s way to our USA warehouse. Sadly, it has been sitting on the container ship off the San Francisco Bay now for over a month waiting for a slot at the port to off load. Each day, we hope for a notice that we are cleared to doc at the port of Oakland, but we continue to wait. This is the frustrating part of our business, and especially so in the Covid-World as it’s the one thing we have no control over. All we can do is promise if to keep you updated the second it is released to go through US Customs and begin the short trip to our US warehouse.
The 2nd production wave of Randy Rhoads Rock Iconz Ltd. Edition Statues is also complete, but we got some unhappy news earlier this week about International ports. There has been a new Covid outbreak and work slow down there, so these Randy Rhoads Rock Iconz are now waiting there for our turn to load onto our Container ship to come to the US. This is why the title of this blog entry is “One step forward, two steps back.”
We know that all are exciting to get these new Randy Rhoads Rock Iconz and we will do everything we can to expedite the shipping process once we get the initial inventory checked in to our US warehouse. Make sure you are signed up for email alerts to get all the news.

If you are paying attention, you will see we have announced the newest piece for our Rock Iconz On Tour® Collectible Series. From the stage of the PInk Floyd, we have created the projection screen used in live shows dating back to 1972. This design had several details that needed to be solved to be able to produce a hand cast limited edition statue. The 1st issue to tackle was cost. We always to to keep the price consistent in our Rock Iconz®, 3D Vinyl® and On Tour Series. To tool and cast the truss that supports the screen in metal was going to costs a kings ransom and simply was not an option for a short run 500 piece limited edition. That’s right, our Division Bell Projection Screen edition number is only 500. No FoMO… So we had to figure our a way to simulate the truss with some other materials. We decided to sculpt the truss shapes then cast the entire part in clear resign. That would allow us to paint the truss metal structure leaving the rest as a polished clear surface. That allowed us to solve our cost and design issues. A byproduct of this is that though this ON Tour Collectible from the Division Bell era of Pink Floyd has no working lights, the clear resign does catch the light in interesting ways and makes for spectacular display. The live shot from the KnuckleBonz studio in the blog here has a single light behind the truss to make the edges glow…really fun to shoot this for the product launch.
The limited edition pages are live now and you can pre-order the Division Bell Pink Floyd Projection Screen now.

Hey Scorpions fans…join KnuckleBonz is wishing Klaus Meine a very happy birthday. It was a please creating Klaus, Rudolph Schenker and Matthias Jabs for our Rock Iconz Collectible Statue Series. They shipped earlier this year.
Scorpions were founded in Hannover Germany in 1965 by Rudolf Schenker. From the outset, the band has laid down hard rock and heavy metal that has excited fans across the planet. The soaring vocals of Klaus Meine along with the dual guitar attack of Rudolf Schenker and Matthias Jabs has been the engine driving classic albums such as “Lovedrive, Blackout, Love at First Sting” and many others. Perhaps no other band in rock history has been able to master hard driving riffs alongside power ballads. In 1988, Scorpions were the first major rock band to play in the Soviet Union with (10) SOLD OUT shows. The following year, they headlined the Moscow Music Peace Festival which was the inspiration for this statue design. Scorpions have influenced countless contemporary bands and to this day remain a stadium and festival headliner. Scorpions celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2015, and there is no end in sight with new tour dates to come.

Rock Hard !
Yesterday marked 42 years since the release of the KISS Dynasty record. While it not apparent to the KISS Army at the time, the original KISS lineup was only a short time away from it’s end. Peter Criss did not actually play on the album due to a combination of injuries to his hands from car accident and struggles with substance abuse. Anton Fig was called in to keep time as he had already worked with Ace on some of his solo efforts. The album did have radio success with “I Was Made for Lovin You“. It actually peaked at #11 on the US Billboard charts. But, perhaps the most lasting part of the Dynasty era are the amazing costumed. They were more elaborate than ever with Gene, Paul, Ace and Peter dawning capes with signature colors for each member. The KISS predominantly black and silver schemes were replaced by Red for The Demon, Hot Pink for The Starchild, Blue for SpaceAce and Green for The Catman. The photos and videos from this era are amazing.
KnuckleBonz has expended our license with KISS through 2023 with the band and we are hard at work on a new set of Rock Iconz.
Here’s a collectors list of the things we have created with KISS: KnuckleBonz and KISS
- KISS Alive II Rock Iconz (Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss) * These were essentially the Love Gun costumes w/ some minor tweaks)
- KISS Alive 1975 Rock Iconz (Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss) * From the costumes fro that era 1975)
- KISS Rock Iconz Hotter Than Hell (Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss) * All 4 band members, Gene is sporting the Skull shirt
- KISS Debut Album 3D Vinyl (The band from that famous black cover and the glowing makeup.
- KISS Destroyer 3D Vinyl – The most aggressive 3D Vinyl design to date sculpting all 4 characters in the illustrative style of Ken Kelly’s famous cover painting.

Rock Hard today!
“HEY HO…SOLD OUT!” .Always a bitter sweet day when on of the Rock Iconz ® comes to the end of the production and is SOLD OUT. Johnny Ramone’s Rock Iconz Limited Edition Statue is gone as of today…never to return. As you know if you have followed KnuckleBonz over the past 18 years, we have never re-released a Rock Iconz, 3D Vinyl® or On Tour® Ltd. Edition Collectible once it is gone.
This production was difficult with multiple sculptors working to get things just right on the Punk Rock Titan Johnny Ramone. We worked directly with Linda Ramone, Johnny’s widow on many revisions. We got to talk about Johnny, the state of music in general and a lot about baseball. Johnny was a huge baseball and NY Yankees fan. We are not, so that was a source of some good natured shit-giving. We learned that Johnny Ramone and George Thorogood, both huge baseball guys, had a beef that lasted for a few years over their baseball fandom. All ended up ok. All were all really happy with the final production.
A number of Rock Iconz will have similar fates this week. 3 other Rock Iconz are now gone and have moved to the SOLD OUT KNuckleBonz Hall of Fame. #staytuned here for updates on that.

The bundles will include the actual Vinyl LP that was the inspiration for our 3D Vinyl statue design. Up first will be KISS Destroyer and Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here…
KISS Destroyer Resurrected was released in 1976, and many KISS fans believe this is the high water mark for the band’s studio recordings. This classic KISS album is revisited and resurrected on 180g virgin vinyl by original producer extraordinaire Bob Ezrin. The album also features the amazing painting by the master Ken Kelly of Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss in the amzing stage costumes from this era. “staytuned here and via our email list for details…check out KISS Destroyer 3D Vinyl Here: KISS Destroyer 3D Vinyl Limited Edition Statue
Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here 3D Vinyl will also be offered as a special bundle with this 1975 release. The 3D Vinyl design pulls from the inner sleeve design by Storm Thorgerson of the robotic hand shake. At this point, Pink Floyd is in the vacuum created by the once in a lifetime release of Dark Side of the Moon and all of the success and fame that followed. Wish You Were Here’s title track as well as “Shine on You Crazy Diamond“ is a tribute to founding member Syd Barrett which by this time is firmly in the grips of mental illness. It also touched on the alienation and disillusionment with the music business experienced by David Gilmour and Rogers Waters via “Have a Cigar” and “Welcome to the Machine.” Check out Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here 3D Vinyl Here: Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here 3d Vinyl Limited Edition Statue
