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.
