DIAMOND SELECT TOYS AND 20TH CENTURY FOX LICENSING & MERCHANDISING SIGN OFFICE SPACE LICENSING AGREEMENT
October 31, 2006

Office SpaceDiamond Select Toys & Collectibles, LLC (DST) is pleased to announce its signing of the license for Twentieth Century Fox’s 1999 movie Office Space.  Under the terms of the license, DST is able to produce a wide range of collectibles from the classic workplace comedy created by Mike Judge (King of the Hill, Beavis and Butt-head).

 

"Now everyone will have the opportunity to own their very own Office Space collectibles, as well as other items based on the characters and situations in the movie." said Diamond Select Toys Marketing and Sales Supervisor, Michael Leavey. “The specific details of this product line are still under development, but fans of the movie will have several great items to look forward to. We promise everything Office Space will be done with flair.”

 

Office Space has established itself as one of the icons of the comedy genre—we refer to it  as a ‘generational discovery’ film—where new fans are finding Office Space year after year and it’s fan base continues to grow almost exponentially. DST is an ideal partner to create products based on the comedic pedigree of Mike Judge and will no doubt satisfy its legion of fans” said Michael Peikoff, Vice-President Domestic Licensing for  20th Century Fox.

 

Office Space marks the latest addition to Diamond Select Toys’ growing portfolio of diverse licenses – including sci-fi hits such as Star Trek and Stargate, Marvel Comics, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Street Fighter and films such as X-Men: The Last Stand, Ghost Rider, Joss Whedon’s Serenity and the Rocky series. 

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.
