KISS Is ALIVE at @BifBangPow and @EntertainmentEarth
January 6, 2015

BifBangPow and EntertainmentEarth.com are releasing a bit more information about their recently announced KISS 3.75″ action figures.    EntertainmentEarth.com now has a teaser mock up image and a write up about the first wave as part of their new pre-order they just posted.  As you will recall, when we sat down at talked with BifBangPow back in October they were coy and would not say which  incarnation of the band they would use to kick off the action figure line.  With this new solicitation comes the news that the first wave will be based on their costumes from the Alive IIalbum.

The image below is just an artwork mock-up, but you can see the outfits, the instruments and we can get a hint at the articulation.   I suspect we will see actual figures for this wave next month at Toy Fair.

Here is the write up on the EE page:  (you can see it and pre-order them HERE!)

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, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.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.
