Are you a die-hard Slayer fan? Well, get ready because KnuckleBonz has just announced the release of limited-edition statues featuring none other than Kerry King, Tom Araya, and Jeff Hanneman.
These officially licensed collectibles are not your run-of-the-mill memorabilia. Each statue is painstakingly hand-cast and painted, making them true pieces of art. And they come with a unique number and a certificate of authenticity on the base, so you know you're getting the real deal.
But here's the catch – there are only 3,000 of these bad boys made. So, if you want to secure your spot in the pantheon of Slayer fandom, you better act fast. The statues are set to ship in the spring of 2024, and you won't want to miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Now, you might be wondering why KnuckleBonz chose this particular era of Slayer for their statues. According to KnuckleBonz: "When we begin design of a new statue set, we hit up the band with our ideas and general era we would like to create. In this case we wanted to go earlier with Slayer, as our last set had them later in their career when Jeff was still with the band. We settled on this early to mid-'90s era. The band did not want to back any further for this set."
But some fans might be asking, "What about Dave Lombardo, the original Slayer drummer?" Well, KnuckleBonz explains: "As an officially licensed product with Slayer, they dictate what lineup they want us to create. We don't have any creative license here. The band lineup is what the band says it is…that's always the final word." So yeah – no Lombardo, no Paul Bostaph, and no Jon Dette. Just the dudes with the strings.
You can pre-order them now on KnuckleBonz's website. Hurry, before they're gone forever!
