ABOUT IRON MAIDEN:
With over 90 million album sales, more than 2000 live performances in 63 countries, millions of fans worldwide and 16 studio albums of unerring quality and power to their name, Iron Maiden have more than earned their proudly-held status as one of the most influential and revered bands of all time. The band has recently extended its legacy in a couple of other areas of particular interest to them: their own beer, Trooper, widely acknowledged as the most successful international British beer launch of the past twenty years with Cheshire family brewers Robinsons and; a mobile game entitled Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast - a free to play, fantasy RPG where players combat the legions of darkness across time and space as the band's mascot 'Eddie'. The game is both inspired by, and features, the art & music of, Iron Maiden.Iron Maiden: Legacy Of The Beast has partnered with Incendium to design and manufacture its physical line of collectible toys, statues, and accessories to bring the immortal Eddie to a wider audience through new digital, print, and physical collectibles.

ABOUT KIRK HAMMETT and KIRK VON HAMMETT TOYS
Since he was a young boy in San Francisco's Mission District, Kirk Hammett has been fascinated by all things "monster" and "sci-fi." From early years spent watching Creature Features to his present status as one of the foremost collectors of horror memorabilia in the world, the METALLICA lead guitarist's passion for the macabre and mysterious has only grown deeper. In 2011, Kirk formed KVH Toys to enable him to create custom horror collectibles for like-minded fans, and in 2012 he published his critically-acclaimed first book, Too Much Horror Business (now in its third print run via Abrams Press) which documented the highlights of his famous collection. Hammett has also hosted special event screenings of his favorite classic horror movies at venues such as the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood and the Balboa Theatre in San Francisco. In February 2014, Hammett launched his inaugural horror convention, Kirk Von Hammett's Fear FestEvil, at the historic Regency Ballroom in San Francisco. Featuring a wide array of guests from the worlds of horror & music (The Walking Dead's Greg Nicotero to British legends of extreme metal Carcass and fellow Bay Area thrashers Death Angel) as well as some of the most creative vending yet seen (including a taxidermy class), Fear FestEvil was lauded by horror fans and critics alike as a unique entry into the world of horror conventions. Further products, events and publications are forthcoming, details of which can be found at KVHToys.com
