2018 will be another behemoth year for KnuckleBonz with even more new products to be announced.  Along with these new additions to our Rock Iconz™ series, there will be a price increase, our first in almost a decade. This is needed to allow us to continue to deliver the same great official licenses from top bands and artists, statue quality, and level of detail we have been creating since our founding in 2003. On March 20th, all shipping Rock Iconz as well as any Pre-Order statues will increase to $149.

Take this time to lock in at our current $125 price and add any Rock Iconz that are missing from your collection.

KnuckleBonz products are all hand-crafted. They are now (and will always be) created in very limited editions. It’s a way for super passionate fans and collectors to connect with our music past and present. We do our best to create value for our customers, yet still have a product that is accessible to all. That said, we know our work is not for everyone and is not meant to be. A Rock Iconz Limited Edition is an investment; a factor that we take very seriously. Each limited edition brings together never more than 3000 people worldwide as part of the brotherhood and sisterhood who honors the great music performers in music. 

We are so pleased and privileged to continue the Rock Iconz Series into our 15th year.

Thx and Rock Hard ! Kbonz

Here’s a quick production update for Live KnuckleBonz Rock Iconz projects....

King Diamond – Production is wrapping up next week and the King Diamond Rock Iconz™ Limited Edition Statue will begin the trip to our US warehouse. Looks like and end of February or early March ship. King Diamond has signed all the special certificated and statue bases for the pre-sales give away. They are being set aside now. Looks like and end of February or early March ship date. Stay tuned here for updates next month.

GHOST Papa Emeritus III – GHOST is in final paint revision and will finish production over the next 10 days. Drop testing on the package design was completed this wee and all is go to ship. Looking like early March for Papa. There’s still time to have a chance to get one of the hand-signed Certificates of Authenticity with a pre-order. That will end sometime next month. 

Janis Joplin – Janis production is complete, and the statue is being boxed for shipping now. Janis should ship at the end of February. Thanks for your patience on this production.

Billy Idol – The newly announced Billy Idol statue is complete and will begin shipping the US warehouse at the end of this month. Looks like an early March ship. This production captures Billy Idol from his debut album era in 1982/83. We have taken some grief on this one from KnuckleBonz fans saying, “we are moving away from metal”. Just because we create something that is, or is not, in a certain musical genre does not say anything about us. We are music fans and will continue to create Ltd. Editions for great music artists. Artists we like and that fans around the world want to see.

Billy Gibbons – The founder of the “Texas Trio” ZZ Top is in final paint and production will wrap up at the end of this month. We has some delay with all our final approvals from Billy because of the holidays, but all’s good and looking like an early March ship date.

Thanks to all for your continued support for KnuckleBonz…we are turning 15 years old, seems like s minute ago we were meeting with Mrs. Rhoads about creating the first KnuckleBonz Ltd. Edition.

Syd Barrett, co-founder of Pink Floyd Rock Iconz®
 Ltd. Edition Statue production in in final stages.

Syd Barrett perhaps had more impact on rock music, over a shorter span, than any song writer and frontman in history. Syd’s life began with a simple and pleasant childhood in Cambridge, England. He then gained prominence as a local art and musical bohemian figure, who would become the original creative genius behind of one of the world’s greatest bands, Pink Floyd. In 1965, Syd joined former school mate, Roger Waters, in the band that Syd named Pink Floyd, along with Richard Wright & Nick Mason. Syd immediately emerged as the main creative and songwriting drive that would lay the groundwork for the UK psychedelic music scene. This would grow beyond an underground movement and become the massive musical genre we know today. Syd’s early compositions “See Emily Play” and “Arnold Layne” were the original Floyd tent poles, and their first UK chart singles. The epic “Interstellar Overdrive” fused a long musical jam session and an elaborate live visual performance, these elements forming the road map Pink Floyd would follow over the next decade. After appearing on only the first two Pink Floyd albums, Syd began to show serious signs of mental illness that would challenge his creative and personal life going forward. Syd split from Pink Floyd in 1968 and released the well-received solo album “The Madcap Laughs” followed by “Barrett”.  After this period, Syd’s interest and ability to focus on his music waned and he withdrew to Cambridge. He was occupied by his painting and other creative endeavours, far away from the spotlight, never to re-emerge. He had become and would remain the “Crazy Diamond” until his
death in July of 2006. Shine On…

It's Thrash Tuesday at KnuckleBonz! Megadeth

Rolling out our Megadeth Rock Iconz(R) Limited Edition statues for Dave Mustaine with his Angel of Deth Guitar. It's a timeless image of Dave in a signature military top and the black and yellow radiation logo. Our 2nd design brings the Peace Sells, But Who's Buying? album cover art to life. Vic Rattlehead is hunched of the "For Sale" sign atop a pile of war rubble..."It's Still WE, the people right?"

These statues have been almost 2 years in the making. We originally contacted  Dave 2 years ago and agreed to create these Rock Iconz limited edition statues. For various reasons, most of which we had no control over, it's taken that long to get these ready for all the Megadeth and KnuckleBonz Rock Iconz faithful. Dave approved our prototypes a couple of weeks ago just before Megadeth headed our on tour for their dates throughout Asia Pacific.

We hope to catch up with Mustaine to present the finished 1st castings in the Megadeth limited edition Rock Iconz statues sometime  later this summer. Will try to capture some video from that for you. 

More Rock Iconz announcements coming literally every week for the balance of the year and we are listening to your feedback. Tell us what you want to see us create in 2017. #Megedeth #DaveMustaine #KnuckleBonz

Rock Hard!
