Iron Maiden Mascot Figure Coming in 2002

October 5, 2001

EDDIE (click images for details)

One of the most recognizable, er, faces in heavy metal - Iron Maiden's Eddie - is coming to a toy store near you in early 2002 courtesy of McFarlane Toys.

    Based on the artwork of the seminal 1981 Iron Maiden album Killers, this action figure stands 6 1/2 inches tall, dressed in a rotting shirt and jeans, and armed with an ax. Eddie has eight points of articulation (neck, shoulders, biceps, waist and hips) and includes a custom base.

    From their pioneering early- and mid-80s material (Powerslave, Somewhere in Time) to Y2K's Brave New World, Iron Maiden is classic British heavy metal. And their skeletal sidekick Eddie has been along for the entire ride. Maiden fans have been screaming for an Eddie action figure and their wishes have been granted. McFarlane and Maiden: the real number of the Beast.
