Pantera Miniature Road Case Can’t Hold Much Gear but Comes With Fake Weed
A miniature Pantera road case collectible, complete with a small stage backdrop and two accoutrements made to look like marijuana, is being manufactured in limited editions by the collectible maker KnuckleBonz.
Part of the company's Rock Iconz On Tour series of music memorabilia, the tiny Pantera collectible is based on the influential metal band's Cowboys From Hell era. It opens, much as a real road case would, to hold its included "stage props" — an imitation pot leaf, fake joint and the 14" X 14" banner. It probably can't carry much other equipment, though, as even with the props atop the assembled case, it stands just 10" in height.

"The Pantera (Cowboys From Hell) Road Case 'On Tour' series collectible is available for pre-order," KnuckleBonz says. "Only 500 in this extremely limited edition. Ship date TBD; estimated late 2021/early 2022."
The keepsake is an "officially licensed, limited edition collectible; only 500 are cast," it adds. "Each is hand-detailed and comes with a certificate of authenticity on the base. The Rock Iconz 'On Tour' series brings music fans and collectors moments in and around the world's great live performances and world tours."

Former Pantera vocalist Philip Anselmo and his solo band, Philip H. Anselmo and the Illegals, will be performing his "A Vulgar Display of Pantera" tribute set at several European dates this summer before bringing the show to the Blue Ridge Rock Festival in September.
