New toy distributor DNA Toys will be supplying KISS action figures to the UK and Europe.

Aimed at collectors and rock fans the detailed figures, by the Figures Toy Company, will be available in eight-inch and 12-inch sizes.

These little rock gods are inspired by toys made by The Mego Toy Company in the ‘70s. They have 16 points of articulation and have rooted hair and cloth clothing. See the promo video below.

Figures Toy Company CFO Anthony Balasco said: "I never understood why eight-inch KISS action figures were not produced back in the '70s when The Mego Toy Company had already released the 12-inch versions.

"Our first release will have the retro look from the '70s, but future releases will cover all time periods in KISS's 40 year musical career from 1972 to 2012."

DNA Toys is a toy distributor started by independent toy retailers David Middleton and Alan Caswell. Their maiden toy line was Sooty.
