12" KISS Action figures KISSONLINE Exclusive Sneek Peek



This is another favourite band of mine apart from The Beatles. Yeah, they had their problems of bandmember changes, crappy attitudes of some members and stuffs like that. But hey, it's a rock band....their supposed to be full of controversies and dilemmas. For the record, I prefer the 70's line-up of the band. That's how I choose to remember them at their best. The current line-up (sans original members Ace Frehley and Peter Criss) is a bit lame IMHO. Sure, some said that the 2 new members are better technically than the original members (that's another story) but excluding the original/founding members by the 2 remaining members is seen as being selfish by most fans. Ok, enough of that, more on KISS history (or KISStory to the KISS fans!) here.
On the 12" action figure news, the Medicom RAH line is due to release new Paul Stanley (the lead singer/rhythm guitarist) and Gene Simmons (singer/bassist) action figures. The top image below is a just approved ad for the Japanese market, and the bottom images are photos of the actual action figure prototypes. No official release dates were announced yet. All I can think of at this point is..."Where the heck are Ace and Peter's action-figures?". Both figures look pretty decent and interesting enough for any KISS fans to pick up, but I think I'll pass on these 2 and wait (patiently) for Medicom to release an "Ace" figure instead (being my favourite KISS member AND guitar hero!)

My wish-list for Medicom, kindly immortalise the "Spaceman" in all his 1/6th scale glory please!

Imagine kalau Medicom buat The Beatles! From different eras!
