Limited edition figures of Dave Mustaine and Megadeth mascot Vic Rattlehead are to be released later this year.

Mustaine is modelled playing a flying V guitar, while the Rattlehead figure is taken from the cover of the band’s classic 1986 album Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying?

Both statues stand at nine-inches high and will be made available via KnuckleBonz, with each of the 3000 pieces individually numbered, hand painted and packaged with a certificate of authenticity.

They’re both available to pre-order now and come after KnuckleBonz announced a Lemmy figure last month.

Megadeth will join Scorpions on the road later this year on the Crazy World tour in support of their latest album Dystopia, which came out in 2016. Find a list of the tour dates below.
