Round 2 Releasing KISS Model Kits

Just in time for the 35th anniversary of the Destroyer album by KISS, Round 2 is releasing model kits that bring the album cover to life. The individual model kits for Starchild, Demon, Spaceman, and Catman can be joined together to mirror the rockers’ exact poses featured on the iconic album art. The kits come unassembled and include detailed pre-painted parts, allowing builders to assemble the figures quickly. The figures stand nearly a foot tall when placed on the included base stand.

For an additional bonus, each kit also includes a unique mini poster. When all four kits are collected, the posters can be combined to form a large 2.5-foot by  2.5-foot poster of the Destroyer album cover.

Bringing Back Captain Action

Captain Action is making a comeback this October. Round 2, LLC and Captain Action Enterprises have enlisted Joe Jusko to design the packaging of toys in the new Captain Action line.

Jusko, the current cover artist on Dynamite’s Warlord of Mars series, was picked to maintain the authentic comic book feel of the packaging by developing a new illustration for the lead character. In addition to producing numerous covers over his 35-year career, Jusko was also a big fan of Captain Action as a child in the late 60s.

Captain Action is a 12-inch action figure who has the ability to transform into various comic book and pop culture icons by changing into different costumes. The new Captain Action toys, produced by Round 2, LLC, will feature a Captain Action figure and costume sets for Marvel comic book heroes Captain America and Spider-Man.

The new line will debut at New York Comic Con, to be held October 13-16.
