Alright, of all the things Metallica has released in the past few years, this is probably the best of all of them. Behold the band's Master of Puppets skateboard, which I'm not sure anyone in their right mind would actually ride given the apparent craftsmanship that went into the creation of this thing. Observe!
Here's the band's description of the board.
Created by Strght in conjunction with Novelli Creations, features the artwork from Master of Puppets on a "Diamond Tail" style cruiser. It is sand carved by hand on thick three ply bamboo and measures 28.5" x 7". It's not just a piece of wall art! Bolt on a set of trucks and wheels and you're ready to cruise down the street or along the boardwalk at the beach.
These skate decks are limited to 250 pieces with each deck featuring a hand etched number. Since these are sand carved by hand, we have 100 for sale now. Look for the remaining 150 pieces in early 2016.
You can go get one as a Christmas present to yourself over at the band's website for $199, which for once is a price I can totally agree upon. Just look at that damn thing!
