Just saw this on the King Diamond site, figured there might be some interest here. If you pre-order one you have a chance to get a signed one.

https://knucklebonz.com/product/king-diamond-rock-iconz-statue/#&gid=1&pid=1

The King Diamond limited edition collectible is hand painted and numbered and produced as a fine arts piece. There are only 1777 created and sold worldwide.

We estimate the King Diamond Rock Iconz statue will ship early 2018.

If you pre-order now, you will be included in a random drawing to receive a statue autographed by King Diamond himself. There will only be 77 of these signed statues, which also come with a special autographed certificate of authenticity.

Fans who were randomly drawn for the signed version will be notified just prior to shipping. Get updates on this drawing as well as the latest production updates at FaceBook/Twitter.

Reserve yours now to ensure you receive one of these limited edition collectibles.

King Diamond asked us to include this note from him directly to you:

“If you place this statue in a room where you sleep

I will show you a glimpse of another world

a world you are not supposed to see… yet.”

----------------------------------------------

Ordered mine already. I have several of these things and think they are pretty cool. Pricey, but very cool.

These things are neat, but way too expensive for me. I wanted to get the Lemmy one, but no way I was paying that much for a statute to sit and collect dust on a shelf.

Yeah they are expensive, but the detail and overall quality is very nice. Once we get moved and into a house I own, I plan on building a wall that I can put all my cds and records together. I plan on using these as a sort of bookmark for the bands. So far I have a Dio, Lemmy, Jimi Hendrix, Halford, Tipton, and Downing. Going to look great when I get it done.

Cool item, but that's something I'd never get. Hell, I can't keep up on my music buying because there's just too much stuff I want. I don't need to start collecting other music related items.

For anyone interested, they have finally released the date for the new DVD that has been talked about for over a decade now lol They have a ton of different vinyl versions available, and box sets and stuff. As much as I really wanted the deluxe box set, I had to settle for the vinyl and dvd/cd set. Wish they would have waited until AFTER Christmas! Oh well just glad it's finally being release:

https://www.kingdiamondcoven.com/dvd-info

On January 25th, King Diamond will release a new DVD/Blu-ray, Songs For The Dead Live, via Metal Blade Records.

There is only one King Diamond, and for more than thirty years the great Dane has been dropping classic albums and putting on shows fans remember for the rest of their lives. Perhaps the only downside to having such a formidable catalogue is that there are just too many great songs to fit into a single set. However, you would be hard-pressed to find a fan who wouldn't want to hear 1987's seminal Abigail in its entirety, and Songs For The Dead Live captures this, twice, and in very different locales. Boasting eighteen songs per set, each of the two shows - Belgium's Graspop Metal Meeting in June 2016 and Philadelphia's Fillmore in November 2015 - feature a brace of classic King Diamond and Mercyful Fate tracks including "Welcome Home," "Halloween," and "Eye Of The Witch" before launching into Abigail. The performances of the all-star lineup of musicians, comprising of guitarists Andy LaRocque and Mike Wead, bassist Pontus Egberg and drummer Matt Thompson, are absolutely ferocious, hammering home every single moment.

For a preview of Songs For The Dead Live, a video for "Sleepless Nights (Live at The Fillmore)" can be viewed at: http://metalblade.com/kingdiamond/ - where you can also pre-order the release in the following formats:

--2DVD/CD 6-Panel Digipak

--Blu-ray (includes audio digital download of Philadelphia Show)

--special edition box set with 5 discs (2DVD, 2CD, 1 Blu-ray) plus poster, flier, laminate, setlist, ticket, sticker, and guitar pick (limited to 3000 copies)

--opaque blue with white splatter vinyl (US retail exclusive - limited to 600 copies)

--opaque red with black splatter vinyl (US webstore exclusive - limited to 200 copies)

--opaque white with black splatter vinyl (US webstore exclusive - limited to 200 copies)

--180g black vinyl (EU exclusive)

--transparent amber marbled vinyl (EU exclusive - limited to 700 copies)

--clear ghost white vinyl (EU exclusive - limited to 500 copies)

--orange-brown/black marbled vinyl (EU exclusive - limited to 300 copies)

--black/purple melt vinyl (Nuclear Blast exclusive - limited to 200 copies)

--orange/red marbled vinyl (Napalm exclusive - limited to 300 copies)

--clear lavender marbled vinyl (EMP exclusive - limited to 200 copies)

--clear ash grey marbled vinyl (Bengan exclusive - limited to 200 copies)

--pink blue marbled vinyl (Ebay exclusive - limited to 200 copies)

Captured on film by director Denise Korycki for Wild Wind Studios, she worked closely with King on every aspect of filming, and throughout the viewer finds themselves front and center as the shows unfold. This includes some inventive camera placement, such as riding in on the back of the wheelchair as it is wheeled out to "Out From The Asylum" at the start of the show, or looking up from the coffin at the commencement of Abigail opener "Funeral", which adds an extra dimension to proceedings. Naturally, the theatricality that has become synonymous with King Diamond is there in full force, making for an even more immersive experience. The gothic stage set and the participation of actors playing out certain scenes tying into the songs definitely increases the drama and the sense of complete disconnect from the trappings of reality, ensuring that the shows remain riveting from start to finish.

While the setlists are virtually identical, the drastic difference in the two venues make for distinctly different atmospheres. The sweeping, epic scale of Graspop and the virtual sea of baying metalheads makes for a particularly thrilling spectacle, King holding them all in the palm of his hand. The Fillmore show is immediately more intimate, and rather than a mixed bag of metal lovers drunk on a weekend of the heavy stuff, the audience is comprised entirely of the King Diamond devout, screaming back every word, their love for their hero bleeding from every frame. Songs For The Dead Live gives those who missed out on seeing these shows in the flesh a chance to vividly experience them, offering so much deeper an experience than your run of the mill live DVD.

“If you place this statue in a room where you sleep

This is somehow supposed to appeal to grown men? Shocked

If anyone is interested - type 'King Diamond statue' - youtube -
I think it's the coolest statue yet - from the ones I've seen.
Something about him and his bands - that I have ALWAYS admired.
I liked Alice Cooper - when I was young - Sabbath -
I LOVE how the statue is holding out the lantern -
It's like Dark Shadows tv sitcom vibe.

Cool on you for getting into these and sharing about them. I'm not into them, but hey that's me.

Are they resin? Just curious.

For a buck fifty I'd rather find something signed by King that can be framed and hung... Or just by the discography and headphone out.

Those statues are awesome, and I have slept next to mine since the day it arrived in the mail, and nothing happened! However, I resurrected this thread, because of the DVD finally being released. You can read all about it a couple posts up lol

And btw, for even more money, you can get a Mercyful Fate statue they have on sale now, set to be released in a month or so. And yes, I ordered one, I don't care the cost.

https://knucklebonz.com/product/special-bundle-15-off-mercyful-fate-set/

Yes, I spent over $300.00 for the set! I have a problem, and I don't care lol

Was kind of hoping, instead of two Abigail shows, they would have released one Abigail show and the previous tour before it. I didn't get to see them do Abigail, but saw the tour previous to that one, and it would be nice to relive that experience again. Guess Youtube will be my friend whenever I get the urge to revisit it.

I agree with you. They should have put the best Abigail show as a dvd. And then put another different show as dvd 2. I didn't get to see the Abigail tour either. In fact, I haven't seen KD since the House Of God tour.
