MY TRIBUTE TO !
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
I've been a fan of KISS since 1983 and it's been 29 years I've listened to the band every day. It´s only fair that I should put on my skin the name of the band that´s grown along with me!!

KISS fans ready to paint the town (and their faces) at Sunday’s KISS Off at Hard Rock Hotel

By John Katsilometes

There will always be a forum for anyone blessed with a lengthy tongue, musical acumen, and a willingness to slather on layers of face paint.

KISS By Monster Mini Golf is making certain of that.

This weekend marks the “KISS Off” finale, scheduled for 2-6 p.m. Sunday at Body English at Hard Rock Hotel. The free-admission, open-to-the-public contest is to award the top KISS tribute band on the planet, or at least the top KISS band among the 200 entries submitted to company officials, who then tracked more than 29,000 votes online to determine the top four entries.

That fortuitous four, and their representative countries/states are KISS Forever (Hungary), Mr. Speed (Ohio), Rock and Roll Over (Texas) and KISSteria (Australia). Opening will be Las Vegas’ own Las Vegas KISS. The finalists will be judged on talent, performance, appearance, showmanship and, of course, evening gown competition (hashtag-sheckykats).

The latter is a joke, yes, but there is a serious prize awaiting Sunday’s contest winner. The victorious band will perform at the opening of KISS By Monster Mini Golf on March 15. Those who don’t win will need to find their own gigs that night.

KISS By Monster Mini Golf is more than just an 18-hole, glow-in-the-dark, indoor putt-putt course with a giant tongue leading to the 18th hole. Also featured will be an arcade game area, a gift shop, a wedding chapel and a cafe. See, KISS is no longer just a band. It is a way of life.

NEW RETRO ACTION FIGURES
KISSONLINE.com
Figures Toy Company to Release Retro 8 and 12 inch KISS Action Figures

Finally!! "You Want It You Got It" "The Hottest Band in the World" "KISS"

KISS Collectors, Rock Fans get ready. Figures Toy Company is about to introduce KISS action figures, reminiscent of the action figures first released in 1977-1978 by the Mego Toy Company. These figures will have rooted hair, cloth clothing, 16 points of articulation and for the first time will be available in 8 inch as well as a re-release of the 12 inch.

CFO Anthony Balasco states, "I never understood why 8 inch KISS action figures were not produced back in the 1970's when The Mego Toy Company had already released the 12 inch versions. Our first release will have the retro look from the 1970's, but future releases will cover all time periods in KISS's almost 40 year musical career from 1973 to 2012". Look for special exclusives and limited edition releases. Collectors will be able to find these at toy stores, comic shops, music stores and on-line retailers starting in March 2012.

Each 8" KISS action Figure comes with a mini replica Love Gun album cover, and each individual 12" Figure comes with 1 of 4 retro mini KISS concert T-shirts!

The Love Gun Action figures will be followed by Sonic Boom, Dressed To Kill and the first KISS album Figure Series!

ACTION FIGURES VIDEO CLIP

All KISS Action Figures manufactured by Figures Toy Company will come in a resealable plastic clamshell protective case! For the first time ever, collectors can take the figures out of the package without tearing anything away. This preserves the mint condition of the figure and its packaging. You can display the figure just the way it comes in the plastic clamshell (which stands up by itself), or take it out to display individually. This is what collectors have always wanted, and is now available through Figures Toy Company! Check out our video below to see it in action!

COMMUNISM COULDN'T STOP SLOVAKIAN FANS!
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Hi KISS fans!!!

Sending you a picture of my cousins that was taken back in 1981 when Slovakia was still under communism. We could not listen to any foreign bands or wear jeans, and KISS LPs were not available in the stores. Despite everything being ”illegal”, we still managed to get access to your music through our relatives in the US. In this picture, we were just boys, but now we are 40-50, have freedom in our country, and continue to be fans and enjoy going to your shows.

My cousin's family totally surprised me with this birthday card. I have seen the Hallmark cards that play Rock and Roll All Nite but had no idea this one was out there until I opened it. Perfect card for this KISS fan!
