Iron Maiden's Eddie Rides the Chinese Dragon with XM Studios

Iron Maiden are rocking out with XM Studios as a new statue has been announced. This statue comes from the band's artwork from their The Book of Souls World Tour in China 2016. This collectible combines heavy metal with pop culture with this highly detailed and unique statue. The statue shows off Iron Maiden's mascot Eddie riding The Chinese Dragon in glorious metal fashion. XM Studios and Divine teamed up to bring rockers a cold cast porcelain statue that has been hand crafted and hand painted to perfection. From the deep scales on the dragon to the Chinese armor that Eddie is wearing, this is one statue Iron Maiden fans will not want to miss out on. To stay in the spirit of heavy metal, XM Studios has limited this piece to only 666 units.

The amount of detail in this statue is truly remarkable. It is not often that iconic heavy metal bands get collectibles, let alone masterpiece statues like this, and XM Studios is doing right. The idea of using Iron Maiden tour artwork is a great idea and would love to see more come from this. Bands like Metallica bring their music to life with some of these tour posters and it's fantastic a company is bringing some of them alive. The Iron Maiden Eddie and Chinese Dragon Statue are priced at roughly $1557. Pre-orders are not live yet and will go up April 29th at 11 pm in GMT.

"XM Studios is excited to present our first collaborative project with Divine. As one of the most influential bands that helped to shape the 80s Heavy Metal music scene and with a career spanning four decades and over 100 million records sold, Iron Maiden needs no introduction. We are proud to present this unique 1:4 scale statue which is inspired by The Book of Souls World Tour 2016 artwork created for their Beijing and Shanghai leg."

"As most of XM's licenses and products reside in the entertainment and pop culture realm, we are excited to also have the chance to delve into the area of iconic music properties. Immortalized in amazingly detailed Cold Cast Porcelain, Iron Maiden fans we hope you love this piece, even for collectors who are not familiar with Iron Maiden, there is no doubt that this artwork will look badass in your collection."
