KISS 1:6 Medicom Gene Simmons & Paul Stanley

Medicom finally gives Kiss fans what they want; 1:6 versions of both Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley in Destroyer era gear (and with Destroyer-era physiques), complete with painted / molded chest hair.
It's been 30 years since Mego introduced the first Kiss figures in the 70's, yet since the Kiss reunion/licensing resurgence of the mid-90's, no one has made articulated 1:6 figures with soft goods.
Hopefully Medicom will fix the obvious costume issues before production and give us Peter & Ace as well, but in the meantime, this is long-overdue, and a good start. Certainly much better than we could have expected from Sideshow, who briefly flirted with the license in their bizzare large scale figure line and will probably be the official distributor of these in the States.

These are leaked images from upcoming advertisements for the figures, courtesy of Toy World HK. No release date or price point announced yet.
