This incredible set features each KISS band member in character-specific clothing from the Love Gun album, along with his own signature instrument accessory.

Each exceptionally detailed figure was prototyped by Gentle Giant to capture every costume and likeness detail. They all feature 11 points of articulation and come in their own individual full-color diorama packaging that folds out from the back to form half of a KISS stage display piece! The Demon and Starchild’s packaging combine to form one of the band’s iconic stages, while the

Spaceman and Catman’s diorama packaging forms the other. Each figure also includes character-specific temporary tattoos and a unique paper-craft drum set piece. The four paper-craft pieces join to form a full KISS drum set!

KISS is a hard rock band founded in New York in the early 1970s. Known for their outrageous makeup and costumes, each member of the band adopted his own unique comic book style persona. However, their unique look isn’t the only thing they’re known for. Since its formation, KISS has put on very extravagant live performances that include fire breathing, blood spitting, levitating drum kits, rockets, and other crowd-pleasing pyrotechnics.

Daniel Pickett

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since.

In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features.

He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced.

In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com.

Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s
“Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com,
Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official
Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many
others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows.

But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
