Love Gun KISS album     Unmasked KISS LP

You Wanted the Best.  You Got the Best.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band KISS is known to everyone as one of the classic hard rock bands, but the band members are also unique as businessmen in their own right.  Probably second only to George Lucas the band created a marketing empire that no one has equaled.  In part due to their make-up and the fantasy world characters the real-life rockers created, the band’s financial success has never been better than today, and they are still rocking venues today more than 42 years after their first appearance.

Online superstore Entertainment Earth is offering limited, numbered quantities of a convention exclusive that was a big seller at San Diego Comic-Con last month–the KISS Alive II stage with action figures from toymaker Bif Bang Pow!  In the same vein as the retro-style, Kenner influenced action figures from the classic era of action figure toys, no KISS fan will want to miss out on this great playset.  It features adjustable rising stage platforms and a lit-up logo, plus a wireless speaker that allows you to literally rock-out the stage recreating one of KISS’s elaborate stage shows, plus it includes a page of fake tattoos like those that came with the band’s Alive II LP album.  The Starchild, Spaceman, Demon, and Catman figures are all included with instrument accessories.  Check out the Entertainment Earth website here to learn more and to order before the limited run is no longer available.

Entertainment Earth is also offering another exclusive from KISS, this Gene Simmons variant figure:

KISS Demon

Pick up yours here at Entertainment Earth.  And EE has one more SDCC exclusive, this Unmasked era set of the band as action figures:

KISS Unmasked

You can get your own Unmasked KISS action figure set here.

Or just grab a set of the four band members as action figures from their Love Gun era look.  It’s not an exclusive but is offered at a cheaper price point for those who don’t want the Alive II stage playset.

Love Gun KISS figures

Get your Love Gun action figure set here.  This set has already sold out once before.  And with all the band members swapped out over their four decades, you can pretend each character is the band member of your choice, whether the original members Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley, and Peter Criss, or later members including Eric Singer, and Tommy Thayer.  No figures are planned for the late Eric Carr (The Fox) or Vinnie Vincent (The Wizard) and Mark St. John and Bruce Kulick were from the “no make-up” years of the band.
