Figures Toy Company toy company is about to introduce KISS action figures, reminiscent of the action figures first released in 1977-1978 by the Mego toy company. These figures will have rooted hair, cloth clothing, 16 points of articulation and for the first time will be available in 8-inch as well as a re-release of the 12-inch.
Figures Toy Company CFO Anthony Balasco states, “I never understood why 8-inch KISS action figures were not produced back in the 1970s when the Mego toy company had already released the 12-inch versions.
“Our first release will have the retro look from the 1970s, but future releases will cover all time periods in KISS‘s almost-40-year musical career from 1973 to 2012.”
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.
Each 8-inch KISS action figure comes with a mini replica “Love Gun” album cover, and each individual 12-inch figure comes with 1 of 4 retro mini KISS concert T-shirts!
The “Love Gun” action figures will be followed by “Sonic Boom”, “Dressed To Kill” and the first KISS album figure series!
