Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammet is launching an exclusive Zombie Action Figure of himself at this year’s San Diego Comic Convention.

The musician, self-confessed horror film fanatic and man behind Kirk Von Hammett Toys, has teamed with Famous Zombies Jr. to create the limited edition figure.

Strictly limited to 300 pieces, the Zombie Action Figure will be available from the Nuclear Blast booth where Kirk Hammett himself will be on hand to sign autographs.

“I am stoked to be bringing more exclusive wares to the San Diego Comic Con,” said Hammett.

“Nuclear Blast has been a friend for quite some time, so I am happy to be able to bring one of my exclusives to its booth.

“Being a fan of comics and movies since I was a kid, it’s just a huge honour to be at Comic Con on both sides, selling and buying.”
