Bif Bang Pow! to Produce Star Trek™ Art Program Collectibles
November 30, 2012

LOS ANGELES, CA (November 29, 2012) – Bif Bang Pow!, under a license from CBS Consumer Products, will produce tins, drinkware and other items derived from the Star Trek: The Original Series Art Program.

The program includes inspiration from Star Trek: The Original Series with 80 movie-style pieces of art eclipsing every episode of the initial Star Trek television series, including the first pilot.

Starting today, fans can pre-order the first 16 pieces of art beautifully displayed on high-quality shot glasses. Each month a new set of four additional pieces of art will be available to order.

“For close to 50 years, the characters of the Star Trek universe have taken us where no one has gone before, and now Bif Bang Pow! will be transporting all-new collectibles into homes and offices all over the world,” said Jason Lenzi, CEO of Bif Bang Pow! “We couldn’t be more excited for fans to seek out what we have planned for the final frontier. Look for additional Star Trek news from us in the months leading up to Toy Fair 2013.”

Star Trek: The Original Series Art Program merchandise is available to order at Entertainment Earth® and other fine specialty retailers.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
