Further proof comes with the news that toy makers KnuckleBonz are releasing a range of Metallica statues in early 2021. According to the blurb, the 1/9th scale figures are “officially licensed, limited edition collectibles. Each piece is hand-cast, painted and numbered; only 3000 are created.”
In fairness, they do look like a pretty cool addition to any shelf, assuming you can find a space amid all the other Metalli-merch you’ve shelled out for over the years. And the price? Just $149 each or a snip at $536.40 for the full set (that's just four S&M2 deluxe box sets, two-and-a-half Seek And Destroy watches or around one-third of a limited edition Hetfield-style ESP guitar).
If your wallet can withstand the battering, check out the full range over at KnuckleBonz.
