Iron Maiden fans have had their own community and fervor for the band since the early days in the UK before they were recording and touring. That commitment only grew when they began to release studio albums and we got our first glimpse of Eddie the Head. Since that time, every true Iron Maiden fan has a favorite album cover and can remember where they 1st saw the art, bought the record, and dropped the needle. The interesting thing here is two of Iron Maiden’s most popular versions of Eddie, and favs here at KnuckleBonz®, where not album covers at all…they were covers on singles. “The Trooper” off Iron Maiden Piece of Mind 1983 and “Aces High” from Powerslave 1994 were released first as sleeves on these amazing single tracks, back when there where singles on Vinyl. We must admit, we never really bought singles so the first time we saw these iconic images was in the press and on tour merch going to the shows…so much to enjoy from Edward the Great and Iron Maiden. Drop the needle today!
Hopefully you saw the launch the newest additon to our Rock Iconz On Tour® Ltd. Edition Collectible Series, Pantera Cowboys from Hell Road Case and Stage Prop. This limited editon is a super short production run of only 500. It’s almost SOLD OUT as we write this blog.
Thought we would share the package design artwork that was approved by Pantera managemnt last week. Note the snap shots on the back from the Pantera Home Video 2. If you a Pantera from fan “the day,” you know these videos by heart. But in case you came to the party late and have not seen them, these were home videos taken by the band, a bunch by Dimebag Darrell, he was VLOGGING before there was such a thing. The snap shots show the band buiding the huge MF Leaf stage props and some of the live shots from the show here they brought this on stage…so cool and goofy fun.

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.
