Stone Says: Metal be thy name!! I just don’t have enough loot to keep up with my KISS Kollectibles collection! These KISS Dressed To Kill action figures are very cool too. I do own a few of the KISS McFarlane (Toys) action figures from years back; as well I have the KISS (Super Stars) mini action figures, which were released in the last few years. I wish I owned the first line of KISS (Mego) action figures from the 70’s! Whoa.

KISS - Mini-Lunch Box - ornament - frontside!

KISS KOLLECTIBLES – That’s it at the top! That’s my really cool KISS mini lunch box Christmas ornament! I was fortunate enough to have received this KISS Kollectible as a Christmas gift from my family, along with the KISS PEZ gift tin. I’m going to keep the paper tag attached to this whiz-bang KISS Kollectible; the klassic KISS logo on that paper tag makes it too difficult to take off and throw away!

Here’s what the other side of this KISS mini lunch box looks like:

KISS KOLLECTIBLES – It just feels right to end 2012 here at Metal Odyssey with a Rockin’ fun KISS KOLLECTIBLE post! Check it out at the top! That’s my KISS PEZ (candy) collectible gift tin! All four of these super cool KISS PEZ dispensers are safely secured inside that sturdy tin box! The issue year of this KISS PEZ is 2012 and is a limited edition.Whoa!

I received this whiz-bang KISS KOLLECTIBLE as a Christmas gift from my family. I thank them for it, from the bottom of my METAL heart! Fun stuff it is. No, I won’t be actually using these KISS PEZ dispensers to eat the PEZ candy from them; the KISS Kollector side of me won’t allow it! Metal be thy name!

KISS - Gene Simmons Ornament - front pic - 2012

KISS KOLLECTIBLES – That’s it at the top! That’s my really cool Gene Simmons Christmas Ornament! Whoa! My family bought this KISS Kollectible for me a couple of weeks ago; they found it at Walgreens (a large retail & pharmaceutical store).

It cost $5 (U.S.) if you buy 2 of any similar kind; otherwise the ornament costs $5.99. Apparently, this was the only KISS ornament left for sale! Metal be thy name! The box measures approximately 3.5″ x 5.25″.

For those who’ve never seen a Walgreens, here’s a look:

KISS KOLLECTIBLES – Wanna See My KISS “Rock And Roll Over” Neon Clock? It’s Really Cool…

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Music, rock music, rock music collectibles, rock music news with tags , , , , , on November 12, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

KISS KOLLECTIBLES – That’s it at the top! That’s my KISS Rock And Roll Over neon clock, lit up in all its kisstastic glory! I bought this very cool KISS neon clock a few years ago at Hot Topic. Guess what? It set me back just $10.00 (U.S.) cause I found it on a… markdown shelf! The original price was more than double that too. Metal be thy name!

This neon clock can either be hung on a wall or stood up on a shelf. The diameter measures approximately 11.5″. I have a choice of using 1 AAA battery or just plugging this neon clock into a socket. Not too shabby.

I threw away the original box this KISS neon clock came in. What the hell was I thinking? Sometimes Stone brain farts… big time. It’s like that elder Metal troll told me recently: “Stone, y-y-you c-c-can’t fret over c-c-chucking away t-t-that KISS neon c-c-clock b-b-box.”

Here’s all the boring info (regarding who made this neon clock):

Made In China

Produced by Rabbit Tanaka Corp. Ltd

2007 KISS Catalog, Ltd – Under License By Signatures Network

Check out my KISS neon clock unlit below! Whoa!

By the way, if you haven’t yet bought MONSTER, you absolutely, positively, 100%, certainly should! Yes, I am quite ecstatic over this new KISS album. Metal be thy name.

KISS Kollectibles – Wanna See My PETER CRISS Johnny Lightning Die-Cast Race Car? It’s Really Cool…

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, hard rock albums, Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on October 14, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

KISS KOLLECTIBLES – That’s it at the top! That’s my KISS Peter Criss (Johnny Lightning) die-cast race car I bought many years ago. Each member of the Klassic KISS lineup was featured on a die-cast in this Johnny Lightning series. This series was featured as “Racing Dreams” and referred to by Johnny Lightning as “the greatest race cars that never were!”

Stone Notes: Yes, as any loyal visitor to Metal Odyssey knows, I keep most of my KISS Kollectibles sealed in their original packaging… unless they’re CD’s, magazines, comic books or books. Uh, you get the Metal point.

A (Johnny Lightning) KISS trading card was also a part of this package (see above photo). My Peter Criss car came with an Ace Frehley trading card; it is #20 of a 50 card set. Along with being card #20, “Ace… ready for a good time!” is the card designation within the set. I do own 1 die-cast of Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons and Ace Frehley from this Johnny Lightning series as well.

I don’t own the complete trading card set from this line; maybe someday I’ll track the set down (for a reasonable price) and buy it. The year of issue for this really cool die-cast was 1997 (the date is found on the back of the packaging). Remembering which retail store I bought this KISS Peter Criss die-cast is fuzzy; Walmart or Kmart would be my best guesses for I’ve bought many die-cast cars at both locations, over the decades. Metal be thy name.

Depicted on the hood of this die-cast car is the Peter Criss solo album portrait:

KISS Peter Criss – Casablanca (1978)

KISS Kollectibles – Wanna See My KISS Puzzle Cube Key Chain? It’s Really Cool…

Posted in classic rock, classic rock bands, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, Music, rock and roll, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on September 30, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

KISS KOLLECTIBLES – That’s it at above! That’s my KISS Puzzle Cube Key Chain! I bought this kool KISS Kollectible at a mall store called SPENCER’S about a year or so ago. This store specializes in selling Rock Music memorabilia, (adult/naughty) gifts, gag/humor gifts, body jewelry and tons more of oddball and pop-culture items. I paid $1.50 (U.S.) for this KISS Puzzle Cube Key Chain, finding it on a clearance hook. I only paid $1.50! Whoa!

As you can see in the above photo, I had a difficult time getting the price sticker off the blister package; so I just gave up on removing it. Obviously, I’m going to keep this KISS Kollectible sealed in its original package for my KISS Kollection!

On this puzzle cube, each KISS solo album portrait is shown, along with the Klassic KISS logo and the KISS character symbols.

The manufacturer of this fabulous KISS Kollectible is Rabbit Tanaka Corp. Ltd. and under license by Signatures Network and KISS ONLINE. The date printed on the back of this package is 2007. Here’s what the package back looks like:

There seems to be countless KISS Kollectibles out in the marketplace! Whenever I cross paths with a KISS Kollectible that is this inexpensive, I buy it!

KISS KOLLECTIBLES – Wanna See My KISS / Gene Simmons Phone Card From 1996?

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , on June 9, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

KISS – Back in 1996, I received this very cool KISS Kollectable PrePaid Phone Card as a Christmas gift. This phone card is the Gene Simmons version. As you can see from the top photo, I never opened the packaging to use it. I did have a cell phone back in ’96, therefore, this card was more valuable to me as a KISS Kollectible than anything else.

This is the only KISS phone card I have from this particular series. If I remember correctly, one of the large book seller chains was selling these KISS phone cards back then. I can’t recall if any record store chain was selling them or not. This phone card set commemorated the 1996 KISS reunion of the original four. Creative Communications is the company that appears to have released these phone cards.

Check out the back of the packaging:

It appears from the photos on this flip-side of the packaging, that there were 10 different KISS phone cards to kollect in all. It would be cool to own the entire set of these KISS phone cards. For now, I’m content to have just this Gene Simmons phone card in my KISS Kollection. Metal be thy name.

Some Metal and Rock ‘N Roll Thoughts – Saturday, April 21st, 2012

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , on April 21, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

This past week the Rock ‘N Roll world had to sadly say goodbye to Rock ‘N Roll icon Dick Clark, along with Greg Ham (multi-instrumentalist -Men At Work) and Brian Jack (vocalist , guitarist – Child’s Play). That’s three too many. May these gentlemen of Rock ‘N Roll rest in peace. Metal Odyssey expresses heartfelt condolences to each of their families, friends and fans.

Dick Clark was and forever will be a prolific Rock ‘N Roll legend. I, like tens of millions of other Rock fans, grew up with Dick Clark. I remember watching and enjoying American Bandstand as a young lad. Just watching the people dance was fun for me, back then. It will forever be “Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Years Eve” for me. That “other dude” that has been hosting it will NEVER be Dick Clark.

_______________________________

I cannot believe my eyes! Well, that’s what I was thinking recently, when I walked into the CD aisles of my nearest Best Buy. The shelves were stocked. Really stocked. It felt like the clock turned back a full decade! Older and new releases galore! Tons of independent labels too. Hopefully this is a trend. I hope Best Buy, along with other large retailers, see that there still is a widespread and hungry market for the dinosaur we all call… the CD.

_______________________________

Look for a really, really, cool interview to surface here on Metal Odyssey soon. Hint: It’s an interview with the lead singer/guitarist of a… Metal band. A kick-ass Metal band too. This interview will simultaneously launch on another world known and widely respected website too! Stay tuned for more details!

Yes, I recently found another KISS Kollectible! The photo at the top of this post tells all! It’s a 1998 KISS The Second Coming tour book. There are 36 full-color pages in all and it measures 8″ x 7.5″. This tour book documents the #1 tour of 1996-1997 and that was… KISS. That is Ace Frehley and Peter Criss on the cover of this tour book too! All four original members of KISS were together for this tour.

There is plenty of KISS Kisstory, concert photos, anecdotes and merchandise offers in this tour book to put a smile on the face of any KISS fanatic. I know it put a smile on my face; especially since I only paid $2 (U.S.) for this little KISS gem. Yup, I discovered this KISS Kollectible at an antiques mall and was amazed at both its incredible condition and price.

_______________________________

On a closing note, March 1st, 2012  had marked the Three Year Anniversary Of Metal Odyssey. I am proud of the content that I have delivered to the visitors of Metal Odyssey. Hopefully you, the visitor to Metal Odyssey, are enjoying what has been featured here. From one day to the next, I honestly don’t know what I will slap up on Metal Odyssey. Holy shit, that is true!

I strive to have all Heavy Music genres represented here, at one time or another; with some Classic Rock and roots of Rock ‘N Roll thrown in for good measure! There are countless albums, press releases, random news items and tour dates to chase down for posting on Metal Odyssey. Sometimes it feels overwhelming… and I’m not complaining, cause Metal & Rock ‘N Roll is embedded in my Metal soul. Metal be thy name.
