One of the most prolific and popular touring bands in the history of rock music, KISS has agreed to conquer a smaller stage — the figure collectibles market. In a landmark licensing agreement with Signatures Network, KISS's exclusive licensing agency, rock's grandest ghouls will be rendered as premium format sculptures by Sideshow Collectibles, of Thousand Oaks, CA. Sideshow, the world's premier manufacturer of licensed and proprietary figure collectibles and prop replicas, will release 1:4 scale recreations of all four KISS musicians-in full makeup and stage regalia.Sideshow's Creative Director, Tom Gilliland, anticipates limited editions for each Premium Format KISS figure, with an MSRP of $249.99. The KISS line will begin shipping with "The Spaceman" figure in fourth quarter, 2006. A new figure will be shipped every other month thereafter, until all four band members have regrouped in your collection. Sideshow is the premier source for highly collectible figures, statues, busts, framed art, prop replicas and figure-study maquettes. Sideshow products are available online at: www.sideshowcollectibles.com, as well as through specialty shops, comic book stores, and via collectible web sites worldwide.
