Here it is!!! Perhaps the RAREST KISS Collectibles up for auction right now. This 6'5" Lifesize GENE SIMMONS Mannequin. This mannequin is part of a full set of FOUR KISS Mannequins and were directly from the Aucoin Warehouse. The face is molded to GENE'S likeness and features extraordinarily life-like glass eyes, Tongue extended too!!. NOTE the "GENE" inscription on the inside of the limbs, this was confirmed by Gary Danko to be written GENE SIMMONS himself!!! The hair is attached and he is mostly intact. His right Hand is Missing a thumb and pinkie and has some chipping damage. The Gene is in GOOD Condition and is in the Dressed to Kill/ALIVE Costume. There are some chips, he is missing a thumb and has some body damage shown in the pictures. All elements of the mannequins are  ORIGINAL....The Zippers are in Working condition on the boots and the back Zipper is also in working condition. This exact mannequin was on display at numerous KISS Expo's between 1991-93.I've included photo's of the GENE at a KISS Convention during the 91-93 era from the scrapbook of Gary Danko! THIS MANNEQUIN ALSO HAS A PROTOTYPE ORIGINAL ONE OF A KIND PIN! THIS MANNEQUIN ALSO HAS A 5 SECOND APPEARANCE IN THE KISS MY ASS VIDEO. Please check out further details and a discussion with GARY DANKO of the Rainbow Rockatorium at www.kissmannequins.com ...

Below is some historical details of the origin and previous owners, from Aucoin, to Fat Vinnie Gonzales, To Rainbow Rockatorium. The History of these mannequins is truly extraordinary. 


These mannequins are from 1976-77 and directly from the AUCOIN Warehouse. The band themselves had a direct hand in producing these one of a kind pieces. Several sources have suggested this set may very well be the only one around right now. These were most likely produced to be used in Venue lobbies for a display, and possibly in Record Stores. This particular set went from the Aucoin Warehouse directly to the Collection of Fat Vinnie Gonzales. At one time Fat Vinnie was world renowned for the largets collection of Kiss memorabilia around. Most of his collection was given to him directly by the band. Right around 1990-91, He began selling off most of his collection and through Danny Stanton, these Mannequins arrived at Gary Danko’s Rainbow Rockatorium in Brick, NJ. Rainbow Rockatorium was also known around the world for having one of the largest selections of genuine Kiss memorabilia. Most of the items that went through the doors were also directly from the collection of Fat Vinnie and the Aucoin Warehouse. Please take the time to watch our recent discussions with Gary Danko about the memorabilia, the Mannequins and Rainbow Rockatorium at www.kissmannequins.com. Gary kept the mannequins from 1991-1993. He displayed them in the store and at dozens of Kiss Expo’s and Conventions before parting with them in 1993. He sold them to the previous owner who has had them for the past 18 years until ultimately we got our hands on them. They are not in mint condition but for being roughly 35 years old and 6’ tall, they are in very good condition. The faces seem to have been molded from the faces of the members themselves, and have exceptionally detailed eyes and makeup. 


All Sales are final, no returns. The Mannequins are sold in "as is" condition.
