8- and 12-inch KISS Action Figures
KISS rocketed to stardom in the '70s with their explosive stage shows, memorable costumes and fan-pleasing line of merchandise, including their own comic book series and line of action figures. Now thanks to Figures Toy Company collectors can reignite their KISS rock 'n roll nostalgia with a "new" series of KISS action figures, reminiscent of the action figures first released in 1977-1978 by the Mego Toy Company.
Featuring rooted hair, cloth clothing, and 16 points of articulation, the KISS figures will be available for the first time in 8-inch scale, as well as a re-release of the original 12-inch size. Figures Toy Company CFO Anthony Balasco commented, "I never understood why 8 inch KISS action figures were not produced back in the 1970's when the Mego Toy Company had already released the 12 inch versions. Our first release will have the retro look from the 1970's, but future releases will cover all time periods in KISS's 40 year musical career from 1972 to 2012".
As a bonus, each 8-inch KISS figure will include a commemorative "Love Gun" mini 2x2 inch album cover while the 12-inch figures will pack an extra mini t-shirt - just like those worn by fans in the '70s.
Look for special exclusives and limited edition releases. Collectors will be able to find these at toy stores, comic shops, music stores and on-line retailers starting in March 2012. KISS fans can pre-order the figures now at FiguresToyCompany.com.
