Figures 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!
