Do You Want this Scream Bloody Gore Bobblehead or Nah?

Important questions.

Relapse is at it again with siqqq reissue packages of another classic record in Death‘s discography. This time around, it’s Scream Blood Gore. To sate your thirst for limited edition Death merch, go ahead an look at everything Relapse has to offer here. Do it. I won’t judge you.

If you will notice, in addition to the luxurious vinyl packages and silly all-over print t-shirts we’ve come to expect from Relapse, there is now a limited edition Death bobblehead you can purchase. This presents a new question: Do I wanna buy this, or nah?

It might be cool to own these lil’ drinky skeletons. On the other hand, maybe we don’t need to add this to our ever-growing collection of junk. But maybe we need it? Let’s create a pros & cons list.

Pros
1. Bobblehead giveaway night is one of the few things that can make a bad baseball game better.
2. These bobbleheads are limited edition, hand numbered from 1 to 1000. Maybe your purchase will appreciate in value.
3. It features Ed Repka’s classic artwork.

Cons
1. Bobblehead giveaways are free. These are $29.99.
2. If it does appreciate in value, you shouldn’t take it out of the box and play with it.
3. It features Ed Repka’s classic artwork. Kinda.

Do you want this bobblehead or nah? That answer is up to you. And maybe your CPA.

    They’re kinda cute.

  • COAL ROLL

    This would look cool next to my mousepad

  • Nah.

    • COAL ROLL

      I’m with you upon closer inspection. $9.99 and the paypal is sent, but $30 is too much

      • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

        10 bucks? Hell yes.

  • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

    I’ll just take the reissue.

    • COAL ROLL

      that deluxe LP set is sexy AF…and includes the back patch and slipmat

    • RJA

      I’m glad to be done waiting on the reissue – seems like the others have been out for some time now.

  • Spear

    spoopy

  • YourLogicIsFlushed
  • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

    It would look cool next to my Piece of Mind Eddie bobblehead

  • BobLoblaw

    Well, my immediate reaction is no, but I’m having kind of a yessy aftertaste.

  • megachiles

    That spoopy skelton on the right is having a fucking blast.

    Like he’s bringing the party and is preparing to chug his chalice of ichor, even though Alpha Skelton is trying to be all srs on his eldritch throne. That’s dedication.

  • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

    I’d rather have a Leprosy bobble head.

    • Eliza

      That’d be weird af.

      • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

        I think it would translate better.

        • Eliza

          I don’t know about that. The art from Leprosy is pretty realistic, I think I wouldn’t look right. Making these bubbleheads is pointless anyway.

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            The Eddie ones turned out pretty rad.
            Rfi

          • Eliza

            I guess it’s a matter of budget and resources. I like the “Somewhere in Time” one.

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            Definitely.

            Yeah, i really want that one. Its my favorite Eddie.

          • Eliza

            My favourite Eddie is the Powerslave one, but the Somewhere in Time one is second in my top 5.

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            Good choices. Not that there is a wrong answer.

          • Eliza

            Yes. All of them are awesome.

          • megachiles

            Whelp, I know what I’m listening to today.

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            Judas Priest?

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Can’t go wrong with some Painkiller.

            Aw man, awk I posted the same song 🙁

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            Different songs

          • megachiles

            Bullet dodged. Youtube links on disqus are blocked on my work comp for some reason.

          • megachiles
          • COAL ROLL

            they missed the one from their very best album

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            Killers or Powerslave?

          • Dance of Death, obviously.

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            What was i thinking? The answer is clear and obvious now.

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            Fear of the Dark, duh
            *takes cover*

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            Ha! I’m just trying to figure out Coal Roll’s pick

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            Seriously, Fear of the Dark is a pretty underrated album. Especially Be quick or be dead.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I don’t think the album is THAT bad. What came directly before and after it…oh

          • Eliza

            No Prayer for the Dying was mostly uninteresting, but The X Factor was downright boring.

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            Tailgunner rules though

          • Eliza

            It’s a pretty good track.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I like the Blaze era. It’s nowhere near as good as the Bruce era but it gets too much flak.

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            JJD plz!

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            It’s not bad. I enjoy it.

          • COAL ROLL

            we know.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Angel And The Gambler is a great workout song.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls
          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            There’s always way worse music out there.

            Meat Loaf for instance.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Why do you torment me so?

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            JJD plz! Humor is the spice of life!

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls
          • COAL ROLL

            or Blue Cheer

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            Woah woah woah, Blue Cheer is good.

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            Frank plz! Meat Loaf does anything for love!

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Meat Loaf would do anything to see paradise by the dashboard light.

          • more beer

            That’s because. Bob had bitch tits!

          • Eliza

            It’s OK if you do, but I personally think Bayley’s voice didn’t fit well with Iron Maiden’s sound.

          • Eliza

            I agree that it’s not as bad as some people say, but it’s not good either.

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            That’s a solid album and my favorite track from it

          • Eliza

            I hope it’s not Virtual XI.

          • COAL ROLL

            that’s my wife’s favorite.

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            What’s your favorite? You’re not answering and is driving me crazy.

          • COAL ROLL

            VIRTUAL

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUdge.

          • Eliza
          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Virtual XI has a very scary Eddie on the cover. I love the album though.

          • you would. and you proved it by submitting a song from there to your Iron Maiden RotW. and i can never let you live that one down.

          • ME GORAK B.C.™

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Powerslave, definite. I’m not big on the Di’Anno years.

          • Eliza

            Is it Brave New World?

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Everybody knows Seventh Son of a Seventh Son is the best one.

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            You mean Seventh Son of a Seventh So o o on!

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            THE EVIL THAT MEN DO LIVES ON AND O O O O O O O O ON

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            Dickinson is so awesome.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            That is an irrefutable fact.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            In fact, I think they should make a Bruce Dickinson bobblehead.

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            I would buy that.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Can Frank play with madneeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeessss?

          • but “Can I Play With Madness” is such a dumb track with its skimpy 3-second guitar solo. WHY AM I THE ONLY PERSON BUGGED BY THIS?!?!

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Well, I have to say…that song is pretty cringe.

          • Caught Somewhere in Time for me this month. I was hooked with Powerslave, but Caught Somewhere in Time is racing for the first spot right now.

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            I like your answer the best.

          • The chorus in Caught Somewhere in Time is a very epic moment. I love when Dickinson’s voice goes up and he twists it with the vibrato, I think is one of his best moments in the studio recordings of Iron Maiden. Bruce can overuse the vibrato sometimes, but in that song is perfectly spotted.

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            Very well put Link! I completely agree with you.

          • Thanks, man. I try to pay attention to the little details on the voices. I don’t know about vocal techniques, but I like to hear it.

          • ME GORAK B.C.™

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            SIT was the first cassette I ever bought, actually.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            The cyber-Eddie looks hilarious as hell! I saw a couple of those at their vastly overpriced merch booth when I saw them live. Only thing I could afford was a $20 coffee cup, which got broken during one of my whiskey-fueled antics.

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            $20 coffee cup? damn. I picked up my bobblehead for maybe 15 bucks years ago at some store i can’t remember.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Everything was overpriced as fuck there. They had a shirt of Eddie dressed up as Al Capone (because, Chicago) that was $65.

    • Sound of Perseverance lego set

      • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

        HELL YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • RJA

        I have an 8 year old son – the day he decided he didn’t like legos was a sad day. What am I supposed to do? Play legos on my own? As an adult?

        • kids these days don’t know Legos, they have a different, unique part for every situation. we used to have to be creative!
          oh no, i’m THAT guy.

        • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

          Yes, do that exactly.

        • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

          Wow, first time I’ve ever heard of a kid not liking Legos!

          • RJA

            Oh, he liked them for a couple years – but apparently grew out of them much sooner than I did! One of the lasts sets we put together – it’s badass.

  • Part of me wants to buy it and put it on my desk at work, but part of me knows that I would only get “haha it’s not halloween what’s up with the halloween decorations?

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    The more I look at it the more I want it, and the more I know I will never, ever waste my money on a stupid-ass bobblehead almost featuring a classic artwork.

    • Eliza

      In my opinion, these would be OK as gifts you receive for buying a package or something, but on their own, they’re not worth it.

  • That looks stupid as shit and I think I need it.

    • These line art t-shirts actually look pretty rad, though.

      • If I were a gringo millionaire, I would def buy all those T-shirt models.

        • If your government wasn’t such a fuckin’ dick, I would buy one and send it to you.

          • Venezuela knows that one of its citizens would get all kinds of gifts for being a #goodguy and they can’t allow it

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            bastards.

          • If I weren’t a broke Venezuelan, I would accept all physical gifts.

        • Would that make you a Latino billionaire?

          • That would be impossible. There’s no Latino trillionaire.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            El Chapo, maybe. Or Ronaldo.

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        I plan on buying the 3 CD set and the T shirt bundle.

  • Wasn’t Scream Bloody Gore already remastered at some point? I’m confused.

  • Dave Vincent’s Perm

    Not sure whether to preorder the 2CD or 3CD shirt bundle.

  • COAL ROLL
    • I’d be all over that if I still played my guitar.

    • Dave Vincent’s Perm

      ALL OF THIS IN MY FACE NOW

    • The tab book seems a little… outdated when there’s Ultimate-Guitar

      • Eliza

        It still would be a cool thing to have.

      • COAL ROLL

        for old dudes like me the nostalgia of the page feel is what’s most attractive

      • Dave Vincent’s Perm

        4 quid a month to look at numbers on a screen? Sure, sign me up!

        • What? I’ve never had to pay to look at a tab….

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            UltimateGuitar’s Pro service costs, Songsterr is essentially that Pro service for free.

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            That’s what it is for the Songsterr mobile app. Besides, it’s kinda like the difference between downloading something and owning the cd.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I bought it.

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            What, the app?

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Yes.

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm
          • EsusMoose

            Always used guitarpro because I have terrible time, also as a bassist it makes a lot less drab to play alone

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            Timing is up and down for me. I can play Slit Your Guts to the beat fine, but Summon the Antichrist fucks me up.

      • Eliza

        Btw, Songsterr is better.

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          It is

      • Spear

        You’re not always ensured accuracy with UG, though. It’s almost always better just to learn it by ear than to try some rando’s shitty tab.

        • This.

        • Pentagram Sam

          Hell yea. Alot of tabs I’d end up editing a bit for better fingering, and sometimes they had repeating chorus parts when there weren’t any. My ear on guitar def isn’t as good as I’d like it to be, but with a bitta guidance from tabs, it gets where it should be. Mostly. But hell, right now I’m still on the synthwave and just got a full version of the Fruity Loops so curious to see how the ear works on that. So far, so good (SO WHAT!) ayyyyyyyy

  • Edward/Breegrodamus™

    If I had a CPA I suspect he would be against this purchase. CPAs are no fun.

    If I had money to burn, definitely.

    If I had money to spare, probably.

  • Rob M

    Pass…looks like some shit Id buy at Spencer’s Gifts

    • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

      Lol, I’ve never bought anything from there, but me and my best friend used to steal tons of stuff from there back in the day.

      • Rob M

        Dont think Ive ever bought anything from them either…used to be a great place to kill some time before a movie, in a “who the hell buys this shit?” kind of way

        • Dubs

          I bought truck nutz there to hang on a friend’s car as a prank.

  • Super Nintendo Chalmers

    I bought it. When it arrives, I can do a video of unpacking it so you can all see how I just pissed away 30 bucks.

  • RustyShackleford

    Buying a bobblehead is never a bad decision. Yup.

  • IronLawnmower

    Bop bloody gore

  • Sir Tapir The Based

    I have a Scream Bloody Gore coffee mug.

    • IronLawnmower

      Bet it doesn’t bobble. Poser

    • You’re great.

    • Super Nintendo Chalmers

      That cup is as based as you are.

    • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

      I had an Iron Maiden one way back when, until it got broke.

      • Sir Tapir The Based

        I also have a Transilvanian Hunger mug, which you would love.

        • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

          I wouldn’t mind having it, if I really needed something to piss in.

          I saw some NON coffee cups when I saw Death In June. Would’ve bought it if I could stand NON. Gah, Boyd Rice was boring as fuck live, and DIJ obviously didn’t want to be there.

  • Count_Breznak

    Cons:
    4. It will collect dust and looks like it’s a bitch to clean.
    Nah.

    • Super Nintendo Chalmers

      Yea, because people who buy Scream Bloody Gore bobble heads are obviously meticulous neat freaks.

      • Count_Breznak

        People buying collectibles usually are. On the other hand, they probably won’t ever unbox it.

  • Scrimm

    I’ll save my money for even more Phantasm memorabilia

  • Waynecro

    That bobblehead is sort of swell, but I try to avoid buying useless clutter. Plus, if I added bobblehead collecting to my list of hobbies, I might become dangerously attractive to the opposite sex.

  • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

    LMAO, The skeleton second to the right on the album cover looks like he’s confused by his cup, and the skeleton on the far right looks like he’s yelling “Wassup!”.

    This bobblehead I’d buy if I actually had a desk. Great for the dinner table though!
