KISS by Kubrick

11 Jan

The Japanese toy company Medicom makes Kubrick and Be@rbrick figures in the likeness of famous pop-culture characters.

Click here to see my post about the Star Wars Be@rbrick figures.

Well, thanks to Eric In Sendai that I found out about the KISS Kubrick figures.

When I looked at the Medicom Toy website (click here to visit it), I found that they have KISS Be@rbrick figures, as well:

kiss-genebear

kiss-paulbear

kiss-ace_peterbear1

The Be@rbrick figures can be bought at the Love Gun KISS goods store in Tokyo. (I have been to that store a number of times).

I won’t be buying the KISS Kubrick figures nor the Be@rbrick ones. They’re expensive.

    I was given some of the McFarlane figures as a present when they came out. But, I personally wouldn’t have bought them for myself.
    I don’t need the action figures myself.

    I liked the McFarlane comic books though. I bought a stack of them.

    Have you ever gotten any of the guitar picks that they throw at their concerts?

    I got one each of Gene’s, Paul’s and Ace’s guitar picks off the Tokyo Dome floor after the concert for KISS Reunion tour.

    My poison is dolls/action figures…so these are right up my alley.
    I really wanted (but couldn’t afford) those last 2 or 3 sets of giant KISS actions figures. THOSE had me drooling…but depending on which model/when/where, they all started at $75 each and up.

    Sir Pent…

    You gotta have everything KISS-related, huh?

    You’ll be in trouble if you ever come to Tokyo…there are quite a few Japan-only KISS items.

    Unfortunately I probably will. I’ll wait until this weekend after I do this month’s bills.

    Sir Pent…

    I just looked online…in Japan, the Be@rbrick KISS figures are ¥3990 for the set of four (not ¥5040 each)…

    and I found a site from Hong Kong that ships them to America (they go from Japan to Hong Kong to America, so the price is higher…)
    They ship the set of four Be@rbrick KISS figures to America for US $50.99

    Their site is:

    >I wish Pepsi would do it too.

    These are more expensive…so don’t guess they’ll be giving them away with bottles of cola (like they’ve done with some of their other lines).

    I think these are available in Japan only…or via the internet.

    >What do you mean by “expensive”?

    The Kubrick KISS figures are ¥5040 for the set.

    The Be@rbrick KISS figures cost ¥5,040 each! ¥3990 for the set of four.

    The U.S. dollar is weak now…so at today’s exchange rate ¥5040 is US$55.55

    Yeah, I wish Pepsi would do a KISS Be@rbrick campaign like they did with Star Wars.

    I agree they’re really cool but much too expensive. 😦 Too bad.
