Kirk Hammett 's latest project has nothing to do with music. The Metallica guitarist is getting ready to unveil a new, limited-edition action figure courtesy of his own Kirk Von Hammett Toys. The figure, part of the the toy company's Famous Monsters Jr. line, features a green-faced, scarred, undead Hammett in a sports coat and bare feet.
Only 300 copies of the collectible will be released, sold exclusively at San Diego Comic Con later this month in conjunction with Nuclear Blast records. Hammett himself will be on hand to sign them from 1 to 2 p.m. on July 25 and from 2 to 3 p.m. July 26 at the Nuclear Blast/JSR Merchandising booth.
Fans can get more information and check out the figure itself on the official Nuclear Blast Facebook page .
Hammett says, "Nuclear Blast have been friends for quite some time, so I'm happy to be able to bring one of my exclusives to their booth. Being a fan of comics and movies since I was a kid, it's just a huge honor to be at Comic Con on both sides -- selling and buying!"
