October 25, 2007

HOLLYWOOD – KnuckleBonz announced they are finalizing production on a second limited edition sculpture of “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott. The figure is fully licensed with Getcha Pull, Inc. the licensing arm which represents Rita Haney-Abbott and the Dimebag Darrell Estate.
“We were all very proud over here in the Dimebag family to learn that KnuckleBonz would be busting out another brilliant piece in the Dime collection,” explains Rita Haney-Abbott. “They did such an amazing job in capturing the persona of such an all out, guns blazing, Texas tornado, known to many, as the one and only Dimebag!”
“Watching Dime onstage was always such a one on one experience,” describes Haney-Abbott. “He had a way of reaching you no matter where you were located in the crowd. Dimes trademark squeals and gut wrenching power grooves captured you as he had the magic! After playing his heart out, drenched with sweat, he’d stand there breathless and raise those arms. The crowd would just erupt so thunderously. Dime has the most amazing fans; those were amazing moments and I think KnuckleBonz has captured that image with this second sculpture! When I look at it I can almost hear the crowd.”
The Dimebag II figure stands 9″ tall on top a wooden display base. Dime is featured with his iconic tobacco Dean guitar. He is shown in his signature cammo shorts and is shirtless to display his all his tattoos work. This 2nd sculpture captures Dime during his “Far Beyond Driven” era. The sculpture comes with a certificate of authenticity and is hand-numbered. Each sculpture is hand-painted and is a limited edition collectible. Only 3000 are created.
