Eddie's Head is a box set by Iron Maiden, in the shape of the head of their mascot, Eddie and containing their first 12 albums remastered, from Iron Maiden to Live at Donington, each with bonus multimedia material, plus a limited In Profile CD. The spine of each CD has a part of the original cover art for Iron Maiden.

This set has been out of print for years, prompting the price to skyrocket. However, all of the individual CDs that make up the disc have all been reissued on their own, making them easily attainable.
