“Casual & Collectible Card Game Available October”

New York, N.Y. (October 27, 2016):  Captain Action Enterprises, in cooperation with veteran game designers Harold Sipe and Meg Stivison, is proud to announce the release of the new 50th Anniversary Captain Action Card Game.

The collectible card game celebrates the 50th anniversary of the character by featuring all the characters from the Captain Action mythos: Action Boy and Khem, his pet black panther, Lady Action and the diabolical Dr. Evil.

The new game features classic art from legendary comics artists such as Murphy Anderson and Carmine Infantino. Fan-favorite comics artists, including Jerry Ordway, Paul Gulacy and Kerry Callen, have also contributed new artwork to this celebratory collectible.

“Drawing Dr. Evil was a fun experience, made easier because I still have my childhood era Dr. Evil action figure plus the Dr. Ling face mask! Captain Action was my number one favorite toy to play with as a child, and it is an honor to be a small part of this game, ” said comics superstar Jerry Ordway.

The casual card game is for three or four players and three different games can be played with the deck and is can be played by ages 12 and up. The game is available online from the tabletop retailer, The Game Crafter. The game can be purchased at www.TheGameCrater.com, and will available via select retailers in time for the holidays.

“We are beyond proud to be part of Captain Action’s 50th Anniversary,” says game producer, Harold Sipe. 
”We believe the game will be a blast for Captain Action fans and a great way to 
share the characters with the next generation.”

This new game has a historical precedent. In 1967, General Mills’ frozen confection, Kool-Pops (a Kool-Aid brand extension) offered fans a Captain Action card set for mailing in 3 boxtops. These playing cards, featuring Captain Action and other heroes, are a prize collectible for today’s Captain Action fans.

The 50th Anniversary Captain Action Card Set, in many ways an homage to the Kool Pops mail-in premium, has suggested retail price of $25.99 and will be on sale via www.TheGameCrater.com on November 1, 2016.

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, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.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.
