Action Figure of Anthrax Guitarist Scott Ian Coming This Fall
The National Entertainment Collectibles Association (NECA) has upped the rock star action figure game in a big way, announcing the fall release of a Scott Ian action figure - with three heads! The eight-inch figure includes one noggin paying homage to the Anthrax guitarist's 2014 turn as a zombie on The Walking Dead.
"Paying close attention to detail recreating my tattoos and overall look, the wizards at #necatoys nailed it," Ian writes on his official Instagram page. "This awesome fully poseable action figure comes with an extremely accurate tiny version of my signature @officialjacksonguitars King V."
The highly detailed and poseable figure is depicted in a promotional image, which can be viewed below, with Ian leaping through the air while performing in front of the Anthrax For All Kings stage setup. One of the heads has him in mid-yell and another with a straight face, but it's the one depicting him as The Walking Dead zombie which is the most exciting for many - likely including Ian himself!
"I was always just like, 'Goddamn, it would be the coolest f--king thing if I could ever get to be a walker,'" Ian said in 2014 regarding his appearance on the long running AMC horror show. "I got to do the webisode thing and that was awesome and I remember Greg [Nicotero] telling me at one point that everyone in the business wants to come be a walker, so we kind of put the kibosh on all of that. I didn't think it would ever happen."
Obviously it did happen, and now the appearance is immortalized in the action figure! Pre-orders for the Scott Ian action figure are being taken at the guitarist's official store here.
