Figures Toy Company to Release Retro 8 and 12 inch KISS Action Figures


Tampa, Fl- March 7th, 2013 - Finally!! "You Want It You Got It"  "The Hottest Band in the World"  "KISS"

 

KISS Collectors, Rock Fans get ready to rock again. Figures Toy Company is about to introduce KISS Series 4 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 are based on the highly successful 2012 “Monster” album.
         
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 third release will have the retro look from the 1970's but updated with more detailed costumes. Future releases will cover different time periods in KISS's 40 year musical career from 1972 to 2012". Look for a first release action figure of Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer. Collectors will be able to find KISS Series 3 at toy stores, comic shops, music stores and on-line retailers starting in Late January 2013.

The deal was brokered by Live Nation Merchandise, KISS's exclusive Worldwide licensing agent.

About KISS

KISS remains one of the most influential bands in the history of rock and roll. As one of America's top gold-record champions, KISS has released 44 albums and sold more than 90 million albums worldwide. Decades of record-breaking tours around the globe have included high-profile appearances at Super Bowl XXXIII, the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, the Rockin' The Corps concert dedicated to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, and special guest appearance on the 2009 American Idol finale that boasted 30 million viewers and a 2010 Dr. Pepper Super Bowl commercial and advertising campaign in support of their Hottest Show On Earthtour.

The KISS legacy continues to grow, generation after generation. The unparalleled devotion and loyalty of the KISS Army to the "Hottest Band in the World" is a striking testament to the band's unbreakable bond with its fans, and just one of the reasons KISS was nominated for induction into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.  Monster is the 20th studio album by KISS, the follow up to their 2009 chart topping album "Sonic Boom". KISS is currently on a worldwide tour which started summer 2012.
