NEW KISS Mego figures in 2019

By Bob Suehs

Exclusive KISS “Target” Mego Figures will be available via Entertainment Earth in 2019.  The pre-sale officially started on February 5, 2019 with an expected delivery date of April, 2019.

 These figures were originally an exclusive item for retailer Target.  The Target version was numbered and limited to 10,000 worldwide.  Each figure had a distinct number which made each packaged figure distinct.  The packaging for the Target version looks identical to the Entertainment Earth/non-Target version so one wonders how the numbering will differ and “if” this new Gene/Paul set are Target left overs or a brand new set with brand new numbers.

 Target had a distribution issue with their line of Mego figures which caused collectors to go in a frenzy looking for these figures.  Random allotments would post on the Target website and would sell out within seconds.  The secondary market was often selling these figures for double and triple the price due to very limited supply.  

 Based off the photos Entertainment Earth have posted, the “new” Mego figures look identical to the Target figures so collectors will have to wait until the new ones arrive to see if there are any true differences between the Target and non-Target figures.
