    Yes, Lick It Up did indeed come out in 1983.
    If you have any other KISS questions, feel free to ask, I love talking about them.

    I enjoyed your wild chats and memories on the KISS Mego dolls and growing up in the 70s! At least I had a mom whom would let me enjoy KISS and be a kid. We were really poor and never got the Mego dolls but today is a different story! I have the 12inch (actually 13.5 inch) figures and getting the 8inch to display and dance like a crazy fool in my room. I LOVE your podcasts and info! You guys are GREAT and keep on sharing your memories,you are NOT alone
