For Those KISS Collectors………

If your a fan of KISS, then you probably know that their new album “Sonic Boom” will be sold exclusively at Wal-Mart starting on 10-6-09.  Press Pass has created a product that will be sold right next to their new CD/DVD.  KISS  “Tour Edition” is a 33-card set that features a ton of KISS stuff from the last 35 years.  There are three collectible boxes and posters.  This set should give collectors a great look back at the band.  Each set will cost around $10.00 each.  KISS is one of those bands that understands the term “merchandising”.  The world is filled with a ton of KISS collectors that will scoop this stuff up.

On a side note, maybe this is something other manufacturers should think about doing.  A few days ago I wrote a post about how current manufacturers should try and work their way into the video game industry, which sparked quite an interest.  If its too costly for a manufacturer to actually get in the game somehow, perhaps they could package some cards with the game.  Would anyone be opposed to having a pack of 2009 Topps Football attached to their new copy of Madden?

  1. The first thing that comes to mind when I think of sports cards coming with video games are the cards that they included with the Backyard Sports games. I don’t think there was ever a huge demand for them since it was a card from a children’s game with a picture from the game of the player. I remember seeing the cards advertised on the front of the games, but I don’t recall ever seeing any of the singles.
