The Mego KISS Ace Frehley action figure is an action figure based on Paul Daniel "Ace" Frehley, lead guitarist with the American rock band KISS.

Background

The figures were released by Mego in 1977 during the band’s most successful period. The same year they appeared in a comic book for the first time (issue 12 of the Marvel title Howard the Duck), and later featured in their own Marvel title which was printed with red ink mixed with samples of the band’s blood.

During this period the band’s fan club, the KISS Army, had a six-figure membership worldwide and KISS merchandise appeared in the form of everything from pinball machines to a board game.

The figure measures approximately 12 ½” tall, and is dressed in Frehley’s 1977 ‘Love Gun’ era costume. This includes a black glittering body-suit with a double-breasted silver sleeveless ‘space’ jacket, silver arm and leg cuffs and silver platform boots. The figure also has Frehley’s signature ‘Space Ace’ make-up featuring blue eye-shadow and black lipstick.
