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.

Toymaker Bif Bang Pow! has revealed the fourth series of its Kenner style action figure line for The Twilight Zone.  The new series will be sold as San Diego Comic-Con exclusives.  Partnering with online superstore Entertainment Earth, the figures, limited to a run of only 672 pieces each, will first be sold during San Diego Comic-Con next month at the Entertainment Earth booth #2343.

The new figures include color versions of William Shatner’s Don Carter (“Nick of Time”), Jerry and Willie (“The Dummy”), and Leonard Nimoy’s Hansen (“A Quality of Mercy), plus the almost-a-borg female robot Alicia from “The Lonely” and Anne Francis’s Marsha White from “The After Hours.”

Landstrider and Jen The Dark Crystal

We first discussed Funko’s announcement of a line of The Dark Crystal action figures from the company’s popular retro-Kenner style ReAction figures here at borg.com back in December 2014.  Finally, this year at San Diego Comic-Con we will get our first chance at purchasing one of these figures.  One of the first exclusives announced for SDCC 2016 is the Landstrider and Jen figure set from The Dark Crystal:

Dark Crystal ReAction SDCC 2016 Funko

From the first image released this week from Funko (above) the sculpts look superb, especially for the seemingly difficult to balance Landstrider.

And if Funko Pop! figures are your jam, Funko has already released images of several exclusives for SDCC 2016.   Check them out after the break, with even more to be announced.
