Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine + Mascot Vic Rattlehead Collectible Figures in the Works
KnuckleBonz has created a lot of collectible figures of rock icons over the years ranging from Lemmy Kilmister to Ronnie James Dio to Rush. The latest additions to the Rock Iconz line will be Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine and the band's skull-faced mascot Vic Rattlehead.
The mini Mustaine statue, which you can check out below, stands about nine inches tall and is officially licensed. It's a limited edition, with only 3,000 being made.
The Vic Rattlehead figure features the mascot as depicted in the Peace Sells...But Who's Buying? album art, as you can see above. Like the Mustaine statue, it's a hand-painted limited edition collectible of 3,000. They cost $125 each, and are expected to be available this fall. You can pre-order them at this location.
As for the real-life Dave Mustaine, he and Megadeth will be hitting the road later this summer. They have a tour planned with Meshuggah, Tesseract and Lillake that kicks off June 23 in Big Flats, N.Y. Later this year, they'll be part of the "Crazy World" tour opening for Scorpions beginning Sept. 14 in Reading, Pa.
When it comes to new Megadeth material, Mustaine tells Full Metal Jackie, "We’re trying to start the songwriting process this year while we’re out on the road, which will be good for us to start putting pen to paper and writing stuff."
