Toy manufacturer Knucklebonz will release a limited edition Angus Young statuette later this year.
At $US149 Angus’ price is larger than the man himself. Only 3000 pieces will be made and all will come with a certificate of authenticity.
Knucklebonz will also release statues of Jim Morrison of The Doors, Jimi Hendrix and Marilyn Manson in the Angus Young batch.
They recently releases statues of Ozzy Osbourne, Deborah Harry, Rush, Megadeth, Motley Crue and Yngwie Malmsteen.
Knucklebonz was established in 2003 to make high-end collectibles. Founder Tony Simerman says, I grew up loving things like clay-mation and the Muppets, combined w/ a love of the harder side of rock music. My dad was manager at the Kenney Center Concert Hall so was lucky enough to be backstage at shows like Queen and Mahogany Rush and any great rock event that came through Washington, DC. I was the kid sitting behind the stacks at most of these major rock shows. Also, our head of Customer Service was at every important hard rock & metal show in the 70s and 80s, making many friends over the years including some names on our roster.
Put those things together and you come up with a company focused on creating ultra detailed collectibles that bring back those special things we watched and listened to when we were growing up.
