It's my "Happy Place"!
I am really excited I never had the 12" kiss Catman back then but I always wanted one now I just have to decige which I want 8 or 12 in.
I nver thought anyone would be able to pony up the $ to get the license from Gene
This is quite the unexpected and happy surprise!
I will get the 8" for sure. I hope they do well enough to come out with more of the era costumes.
Did anyone else notice their names are not used? The catman and spaceman look like Tommy and Eric. I want a Dynasty era Ace, is all I will say
I noticed that these 12 inchers were manufactured in China and not India. Hopefully that will ensure some type of quality control.
I did not see that that the 8" figures were China made.
I fear the worst for the 8."
But hey, cool that they're back in the game.
I'm not much of a KISS fan, but I really do think these figures look great. I'm hoping I can use the new CTVT 12" body to repair a few of my 12 inch Megos.
I think this is great news. OK CTVT Bring on the new 12" Fonz figure that Mego thought about making back in the late 70's.
This is just awesome with a s****ful of sweet whoop ash on top!
Why couldn't they update them and make them look more detailed. It was nice to bring them back but update them with better sculpt and outfits. They look too cheesy to me. But sorry guys with Hot Toys, DID and Sideshow making great looking figure these Kiss figures would look out of place on my shelves. Look at Mattel they made retro Super Hero figures (great Idea) but what I hear is line is canceled. That is because they looked too cheesy and cheap looking. Mattel didn't want to spend any money making them for today's standards. Today's collectors are spoiled with toy companies making life like figures. I look at them as knock offs of a company the made cheap figures. And that was Mego. Dont get my wrong. I love Megos. I have about 150 of them in my collection. But that was 1970's and there wasn't much action figures then. Today is another world in collecting
^^^^ Either you like the Megoish retro style or you don't. Real simple. To expect a line called retro heroes to have modern design and sculpts is really not too bright. They wouldn't have called 'em that if they weren't going to look like that. What killed the line was poor distribution and QC, and probably poor character selection with the GL wave.
Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.

It's not how hard you hit, but how hard you can be hit and still move forward.
