MARKHAM, Ontario, Canada, August 16, 2010 – The past, present and future of the UFC, in and out of the cage, will be on display – literally – as attendees of UFC® Fan Expo™, August 27-28 at the John B. Hynes Convention Center in Boston, will get the first look at the Round 5 “Ultimate Collector” Series 4 collectible figurines.  Fans can see new standard and Limited Edition sculpts representing seven different UFC personalities, including Royce Gracie, Brock Lesnar, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, Cain Velasquez, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, Dana White (regular only) and Bruce Buffer (Limited Edition only).

Round 5 can be found at Booth No. 2524 on the convention floor.  The “Ultimate Collector” Series 4 displays are in addition to the previously announced “3-packs” featuring Buffer, exclusive to Expo in the U.S., and prototypes of its high-detail “Live” series with Randy Couture and Chuck Liddell.

“We are pleased to be introducing our latest series of new figurines to fans at UFC Fan Expo,” said Damon Lau, Round 5 president and co-founder.  “There are some completely new athletes, including Royce Gracie and Cain Velasquez, and our first ‘Ultimate Collector’ non-fighters in Dana White and Bruce Buffer.”

“Ultimate Collector” Series 4 is expected at retail in time for the 2010 Holiday season.

Fans will also be able to purchase the new “Ultimate Collector” Series 3 figurines at the Expo, including new representations of Rich Franklin, Anderson Silva, Antonio Nogueira, Diego Sanchez and both UFC and PRIDE versions of Wanderlei Silva.

“Ultimate Collector” Series 1 and 2 are now available at leading retailers across North America, and Series 3 will be available shortly.

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.
