Figures Toy Company
is about to introduce KISS
Series 2 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 very first KISS
album from 1974, titled "Kiss"

CFO Anthony Balasco
states, "I never understood why eight-inch KISS
action figures were not produced back in the 1970s when the Mego Toy Company
had already released the 12-inch versions. Our second release will have the retro look from the 1970s but updated with more detailed costumes. Future releases will cover all time periods in KISS
' 40-year musical career from 1972 to 2012."
Look for a Demon "Hotter Than Hell" and Starchild with "Bandit Makeup" exclusives and limited-edition releases. Collectors will be able to find KISS
Series 2 at toy stores, comic shops, music stores and on-line retailers starting in late October.
