BifBangPow’s Flash Gordon Wave II up for preorder
November 14, 2008

Our friends over at BifBangPow just updated their site with the following news on their awesome Flash Gordon line: 

After the success of Bif Bang Pow!’s ‘Flash Gordon’ Wave 1 figures of Flash and Ming, we got asked all year, "Hey, what about the rest of the gang? I want them all! I want to save the universe!" Ok, well maybe it doesn’t get THAT serious, but never let it be said we here at BBP! Headquarters don’t listen to the fans.

Wave 2 of our Alex Ross designed action figures from ‘Flash Gordon’ is now available for pre-order over at Entertainment Earth. They’re made to Mr. Ross’ exacting details, and the line up includes Flash in T shirt (which all good fans know debuted at San Diego Comic Con last summer), Prince Barin as portrayed by Timothy Dalton, Melody Anderson as Dale Arden and the inimitable Peter Wyngarde, as the sleaziest right hand man in sci fi, Klytus. All feature multiple points of articulation, exclusive new Wave 2 packaging, and Dale even comes with the floating security droid! (Floating ability sold separately). Hurry over now and get ‘em while you can, they’ll be as limited as Wave 1′s Flash and Ming. Collect them all, and yes, Save the Universe!!

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,,, 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.
