Post Randy Rhoads Sculpture
KnuckleBonz has created a second sculpture of late guitarist legend Randy Rhoads (OZZY OSBOURNE, QUIET RIOT) in association with the Randy Rhoads estate. The figure is sculpted and hand-painted and available only in a very limited edition of 3,000 worldwide. Each is hand-numbered and has a certificate of authenticity on the base of the sculpture.

The Randy Rhoads II figure is officially licensed through the Randy Rhoads Charitible Trust. The sculpture has already been completed and approved by the family and KnuckleBonz is in the paint-production phase now. A fall release is expected.

A number of photos taken at Randy Rhoads's gravesite at the Mountain View Cemetery in San Bernardino, CA on March 19, 2007 to mark the 25th anniversary of Randy's passing have been posted online at this location.

With the blessings of the family of Randy Rhoads, Dakota Pictures and director Peter Margolis began filming the "Randy Rhoads Documentary" last year at the Mountain View Cemetery. In hopes to fully capture the significance of the 25th anniversary of Randy's passing, the filmmakers interviewed as many of Randy's fans as possible.

In 1982, Rhoads, the then-lead guitarist for OZZY OSBOURNE, and two others were killed at Flying Baron Estates, just outside Leesburg, Florida, when their small plane struck Osbourne's tour bus, then crashed into a mansion.

It looks like shit. It looks like David Bowie in a Rod Stewart wig, dressing up as Randy for Halloween.








Of course it could just be a bad photo so lets take a look at it from another angle...

Nope. now it looks like Carlos Cavazo


BTW the strap is not right color (it should be black), his hands are way too big and are completely out of proprtion with the rest of his body, his V is too small, and the painting job on the studs on his vest look sloppily done. I wouldn't be so critcal if it was a $15.00 figure, but it isn't! Knucklebonz is asking $130.00 plus shipping!!!! No thank you, if I am going to pay that much for a Randy figure I expect it to look like Randy! :roll:
