KISS Logo

Toyark forum member ukmu pointed us to this cool piece of news. Bif Bang Pow has announced plans to create a line of KISS 3.75″ Figures! They will also be producing a few other KISS related items as well. Here’s the snippet directly from Bif Bang Pow:

Bif Bang Pow!, the world-renowned manufacturer of licensed consumer products, will create the first-ever 3 3/4 inch scale KISS action figures. Bif Bang Pow! will also produce KISS stationery products, tin totes, drinkware, license plate frames, nesting dolls and other products as part of its special KISS collectibles line. Slated for release in early 2015, Bif Bang Pow!’s 3¾” scale KISS action figures and collectibles will be distributed exclusively through EE Distribution, a division of Entertainment Earth, Inc. and sold directly to consumers via its website, www.entertainmentearth.com, and other fine specialty retailers.

No word on if these will be retro inspired, similar to Bif Bang Pow’s Twilight Zone Figures, or if they will go a route offering more articulation.

Super Fan Art

For a few years now, toy companies (especially Hasbro) has seen rising competition from fan created toys and figures. The ever growing access to 3D printing has completely changed the game and Shapeways has been one of the most recognizable names in the on-demand 3D printing market. Now, it seems we’re set to see a game changer as Hasbro and Shapeways are teaming up.

Through a new agreement, Hasbro will grant Shapeways and their customers to not only print, but sell some custom designs. It’s called Super Fan Art and they will kick things off with the My Little Pony franchise. This is going to debut at San Diego Comic-Con later this week. Right now, they are granting a limited number of artists the right to do this. They are also looking to expand this beyond Ponies to include other Hasbro properties in the future.

You can catch up on all the details at Shapeways. Check out Super Fan Art as well to browse through and purchase some of the, now, officially licensed designs. Let us know what you think by joining in on the discussion.
