The crew over at NECA has long been providing a healthy dose of "rock" to the toy aisles with previous licenses including AC/DC and IGGY POP. Their longest-running series is that of IRON MAIDEN, and while several action figures of their iconic mascot "Eddie the Head" have been produced, there's still some ground to cover. Now, Eddie is making his way into tabletop gaming with the first series of IRON MAIDEN miniatures for HeroClix. Check 'em out below.
You know... IRON MAIDEN is doing a short run of tour dates with MEGADETH this summer. That means that Eddie will be running side-by-side with another metal icon - Vic Rattlehead. I'd be interested in an action figure of ol' Vic should NECA be so inclined to make one...
