The action figure--which looks, it should be noted, incredibly detailed and articulated--is of Vic from the cover of Megadeth's 2016 release Dystopia, on which the band's symbol of corporate greed and silence appears as a metallic cyborg in a police get-up, complete with a vest (that looks bulletproof on the album, but more dapper on the figure) and his sleeves rolled up. The image gives an extra level of menace to Vic, making him look more like a terminator than some thrasher skeleton.
This isn't NECA's first foray into metal action figures--the new Vic Rattlehead figure appears next to NECA's articulated action figure or Anthrax's Scott Ian. But this isn't even NECA's first Megadeth figure. The company also created a stylized version of Vic from the band's immortal Peace Sells...But Who's Buying? cover.
When the Dystopia figure will be available to the public, and how it ties into Megadeth's upcoming new album or new greatest hits collection, remains to be seen.
