Figures Toy Company Announces 8″ and 12″ KISS

 

Figures Toy Company to Release Retro 8 and 12 inch KISS Action Figures
Tampa, Fl- January 27, 2012 – Finally!! “You Want It You Got It”  “The Hottest Band in the World”  “KISS”

 

KISS Collectors, Rock Fans get ready. 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.

 

CFO Anthony Balasco states, “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″. 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.

The deal was brokered by Live Nation Merchandise, KISS’s Global licensing agent.

    I would have loved to have had these as a kid. I saw the commercials for the 12-inchers but they were never carried by stores we shopped at.
