Figures Toy Company continues their series of KISS figures with the release of the Destroyer figures today!
This 7th series are for now only released as 8" figures, unclear if they ever will be released as 12" figures.
Coming this fall are the KISS Dynasty figures.

As their previous 6 KISS series, KISS, Love Gun, Sonic Boom, Monster, Dressed To Kill & Alive!, these figures will be aviable in resealable plastic clamshell.
There aren't any updates about the 18" Love Gun figures edition!

Bruce Kulick NY Meet & Greet And Live Show!

During our stay in New York for the Peter Criss Meet & Greet and Landmark Tour Experience, we also went to the NY KISS Expo!
There we had our Meet & Greet with Bruce Kulick aswell his wife Lisa! Bruce was one of the special guests and as soon as he saw us he said: here are my friends from The Netherlands. He remembered that we also have meet him at the Los Angeles KISS Expo in januari and he & Lisa found it really great that we were now in NY. We let them signed a promo photo of them together and talked about several things, like the NY traffic, the Pennsylvania hotel and his first live performance with Lisa later that day. We looked forward to it. Then it was time for our photo and it turned out great! Bruce also mentioned that he will be on the KISS Kruise VII and this was great news to us, we were waiting for years for Bruce on the Kruise!

Around 6:30 PM it was time for the first live perfromance of Bruce & Lisa ever! We've made sure that we had a seat front row so that we wouldn't miss a thing. Before they began Bruce explained to the fans how this collaboration with Lisa came together. He talked about the christmas song they did performed in their living room for the fans last year. The responce on this song was great and so the idea was born that they maybe should do some recordings together. So they recorded If I Could Show You earlier this year, what resulted to this performance today.
Here's our video of the song: If I Could Show You, enjoy...

Also they played some KISS songs and it was great to hear Lisa sang and Bruce playing accoustic guitar, even the solo's and he explains these were sometimes not easy to do. And we thought it was a special moment for us when they played Forever on our 7th wedding anniversary today, because this song was played when we got married!

Other songs that were perfromed were: Reason To Live, Who Wants To Be Lonely, Reason To Live, Crazy Crazy Nights & Every Time I Look At You.
Bruce & Lisa did a great job and they had fun on stage. We had a great time to see them perform and have enjoyed it!
We're looking forward to see Bruce on the KISS Kruise VII soon...
Here is a selection of our photo's, enjoy...

New York KISS Expo!

When we were in New York for the Peter Criss Meet & Greet and Landmark Tour Experience we also attended the KISS Expo!
The expo was located on the ballroom top floor of the Pennsylvania hotel, once arrived we checked out the vendors. As a KISS collector for more than 37 years, it's not easy to find items you don't have, but we managed to find a copple of cool things.
Besides Bruce Kulick as special guest, also Big John Harte, Ken Kelly, Dennis Woloch, Lynn Goldsmith & Robert Conte were some of the guests.

Around 4 PM it was time for the Q&A with Big John, Ken, Dennis, Lynn & Robert and they all had some cool stories to tell. As we knew from the LA KISS Expo, Big John was working on a book (release mid december) and with all the stories he told today we know his book is a must have! Also photograper Lynn Goldsmith is releasing a photo book, called KISS 1977-1980 (release september) and she told a lot about it, we think it will be a awesome book. Robert Conte talked about his work for KISS during the release of the KISS remaster CD's and Dennis Woloch had also great stories to tell and we wanted to hear more from him. Funny fact was that Dennis contacted Ken Kelly to paint the Destroyer album cover and they talked about this during the Q&A.
As a fan it's always great to hear those kind of stories from these guests and we're thankfull we got a chance to meet them.
Here's a selelection of our photo's, enjoy...

Our Peter Criss Meet & Greet Experience NY!!!

When we had a awesome meet & greet experience with Peter Criss in Los Angles, we never thought we had a chance to meet him again. So when the KISS New York Expo was announced, including to meet Peter and a KISS Landmark Tour, we knew we had to be there!

The location of the expo was on the top ballroom floor of the Pennsylvania hotel, right accros the Madison Square Garden and only 2 blocks from our hotel. We arrived around 9:30 am because with our platinum tickets we had early entry. Once at the Penn top we checked out the vendors, talked to other fans untill it was time for our meet & greet with Peter.

The meet & greet was in another room and once we got in we saw the original Catman in a great mood. When it was our turn to meet him, we were welcomed by his wife Gigi, who regonized us right away and gives us a big hug! She asked us; how we are doing and if we are doing the tour on sunday? But before we could answer she said; of course you are, if you coming over from The Netherlands. She was happy to see us. Also she told us that she visited our blog and loved it!

Then we walked over to Peter and he regonized us, we talked about meeting him in Los Angeles was so special for us. He was so thankfull and he couldn't believe that we travelled so far once again to see him. We told him that it was our 7th wedding anniversary today and Peter gives us a warm hug and said he was married for 18 happy years. Peter took all the time for us, he's such a sweetheart and really nice person and he kept smiling to us!

Then it was time for our photo with Peter and as you all can see it turned out great! After our photo was taking and we had to leave, he gives us another big hug and a few moments later Gigi did the same, saying to us; see you both tomorrow. Once again we had a incredible time meeting Peter and Gigi and we looked forward to see them again on the KISS New York Landmark Tour tomorrow...

Our NY KISS Landmark Tour With Peter Criss!

After having such a incredible time on the KISS Landmark Tour with Peter Criss in Los Angeles in januari, we decided that we would do it all over again! This time with Peter in New York!

On sunday june 11th we arrived early at the Pennsylvania hotel, to make sure we had a good spot on the bus. We were first in line and all we could do is wait for the tour to begin, in the mean time we talked to fans from all over the world. Around 11 am Peter Criss and Gigi arrived at the hotel and they both welcomed all the fans personal! When te bus arrived Peter got in first and we followed after him. First we looked were's Peter, but he went upstairs. So we did also and we got seated almost next to him, we were very happy with our spot!

We had the chance to talk with him for quite some time. We talked about his career, his music, albums and of course KISS. One of the questions we asked him if he would consider to do some final shows in Europe too, like in The Netherlands. He loved Holland and he would see if it could be done, so who knows?
Our first stop was Madison Square Garden and Peter talked about playing there with the boys and what a big deal it was to finally play there.
The next location was the famous Loft, were it all began for him & KISS. So cool to finally see it for real.

The next stop was the Dressed to Kill corner, this photo was used for the Dresssed To Kill album cover. Getting there Peter was wondering if the phone booth was still there, I suggested to him he should go inside and maybe he would come out all dressed up as the Catman, he said; maybe I'll (but the booth didn't excist anymore) Once arrived at the corner we got out of the bus to check out the spot and we took photo's from us at this famous location. Also here we had our first group photo with Peter! Of course he told some cool stories about it.
Here are we walking & talking with Peter (thanks to Masami):

Our next stop was Electric Lady Studios. Peter said that the last time he was here was 5 years ago. He talked about how it was recording here and that Eddie Kramer still works here! He also told that Eddie still has some unreleased KISS recordings? At the studio we had our second group photo and we were lucky enough to get into the photo with Peter (they split us in a few groups) because suddenly we could get inside of the Electric Lady Studio's, we couldn't believe it! This studio is one of the highlights in KISStory! We went to studio A and Peter shared some cool stories to us. Inside we got another photo with Peter and we also shoot some photo's from us inside. What a incredible experience was this!
Here's our video of Peter talking about the studio, enjoy...

Our next location was the Fillmore East, but it didn't longer excist. Peter said they played here with KISS and it's sad that all these venues aren't around anymore like the Diplomat hotel, that was our next location.
During the ride Peter talked about that Gigi wants to put a DVD out of his career, from the start (or pre-KISS) till today. He talked about Sean Delany and to our suprise that he isn't longer in touch with Gene, Paul & Ace for a long time!
Our last stop was Madison Square Garden, here we got our last photo with Peter. But first we were singing Beth together to and for him and he sang along. Here's the video:

With taking the group photo, our New York Landmark Tour came to a end. We said goodbye to Peter and he gives us a big hug!
What can we say about our tour with Peter? It was a incredible experience, we had the chance to spend some time with him and talked about all kind of things. To get inside the Electric Lady Studio's was priceless, all the stories he told, priceless!
We are happy we had the opertunity to do the KISS Landmark Tours in Los Angeles & New York. We wouldn't have missed it and are thankfull to be a part of them!
Here's a selection of photo's we took during the tour, enjoy...

Our KISS-Peter Criss New York Sightings!

When we did the New York Landmark Tour with Peter Criss on june 11th, we also planned to do our own KISS/Peter Criss sighting tour, as we did in Los Angeles! There are even more KISS sightings in New York than in LA, so we did our best to see as much spots as we can.

Our first sighting was the Madison Square Garden were KISS played several times. It was always a dream for each member of the band to play there one day and they played their first gig there in 1977! Our next stop was the Loft, were it all began for KISS, finally we saw it for real. This place has so much KISStory! Wished we could get in there. Our next location was were they shoot the album cover of Dressed To Kill. We think this is the most photograped lamppost in NY. Of course we had to take some pictures from us with it, lol.
If we wouldn't went to the Electric Lady Studio's a day before with Peter, we would have visited it, but nothing can top our experience to get inside the studio with Peter!

Our next stop the location of the glass tunnel photo shoot, we couldn't believe it that it still was there! Of course we had to make some pictures with us of the "tunnel of love" as we called it. Up next was the Diplomat hotel, but it doesn't excist anymore (it's a bank now). On july 13th 1973 KISS played their debut gig at the Diplomat. Than we headed over to the location of the wall fountain, well-known of the photo shoot with the band in 1974. Such a great spot we could have stayed there for hours. Then we went to another fountain were the band was photograped in 1974, near Central Park.

Our next sighting was Radio City were KISS performed in 1993, followed by the next KISS spot the Carnegie House, were KISS was photograped while walking to Central Park. Wasn't easy to find, because it was around the corner, lol. As we came closer to Central Park we visited the location were the cover of the Early Years book was shoot in 1974. Then we headed over to the park for our next 2 locations: the well-known photo of KISS on the stairs and the photo with the band on a field in Central Park. This last spot seems not easy to find, but we found it right away!
Next location was the Jimmy Fallon TV studio were KISS performed in 2014. Then we headed over to one of the famous KISS spots in New York: the Empire State Building! They did a photo shoot at a platform almost on the top of the building in 1976. So we had to find the exact spot were the photo was made and we found it it wasn't easy because some of the buildings are gone or have another colour, lol. Of course we took some pictures with the same buildings behind us, such a thrill to be here!

We also took a boattrip on the Hudson river and we sail under the Brooklyn bridge were KISS performed in 1996. Our last KISS spot was the USS Interprid were KISS announced their reunion tour, also in 1996.

We had such a great time visiting all these cool KISS sightings in New York. Sometimes we couldn't believe that some of these spots still excist and on the other hand it's a shame that some are gone for good. But we had a blast, it's all KISStory!
Here are the photo's of our KISS/Peter Criss Landmark Tour in New York, enjoy...
