Iron Maiden lead singer Bruce Dickinson joins McFarlane Toys and spawn.com founder Todd McFarlane to unveil McFarlane's latest rock action figures of Eddie, the faithful mascot of the British heavy metal band since their 1980 debut.
Two versions of Eddie will be on display. The first figure, in stores now, is based on artwork from the seminal 1981 Killers album. The second figure is based on artwork that accompanied the single "The Trooper", from the 1983 Piece of Mind album. The Trooper figure will hit store shelves in fall 2002, and will be publicly unveiled for the first time at toy fair.
