BifBangPow Announces New Licenes – EastBound and Down
May 27, 2010

We’ve got a 2-fer in the news this morning.  Our friends at BifBangPow! are letting us make two big announcements this morning.

The first news is that BifBangPow! have secured a new license- That license is for the hilarious HBO series Eastbound and Down, the comedy from the minds of comedians Will Farrel and Danny McBride.  This crude, but very funny show tells the story of burned-out major league baseball pitcher Kenny powers who, years after he turned his back on his hometown, must return to teach phys ed at his old middle school. The series wrapped up its first season last year and is currently in production on its second season, coming soon to HBO.

Jason Lenzi of BifBangPow! said "BifBangPow! is thrilled to welcome the characters from Eastbound and Down to our roster of products and personalities.  The characters in Eastbound and Down should feel right at home with many of the other irreverent products from other popular movies and TV shows  found in the BBP stable of licenses." 

Lenzi adds "We are constantly looking for new licenses and properties that we know BBP fans will enjoy, and Eastbound and Down falls squarely into our wheelhouse."

As for what is up first from BifBangPow! and Eastbound and Down, that leads us into our next announcement:


The SECOND announcement of the morning is

The first product from the Eastbound and Down license will be the  Kenny Powers talking bobble-head!  This limited edition of bobble-head of Danny McBride as Kenny in his baseball uniform will be be available in limited quantities at the from the BBP/Entertainment Earth booth at Comic Con 2010.

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 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,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, 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.
