@EAGLEMOSS INTRODUCES U.S. TO LATEST CONCEPT IN POP CULTURE COLLECTING
July 30, 2017

First “Build Up” Invites Fans to Build the BACK TO THE FUTURE™ DeLorean!

(July 26, 2017 – New York, NY) For close to a decade, collectors around the world have enjoyed the opportunity to deepen their fandoms through Eaglemoss Collections’ innovative “Build Ups.” These subscription programs furnish fans with regularly delivered plans, parts and behind-the-scenes insights with which to build their very own oversized scale models of some of the most famous icons of popular culture.: 007’s Aston Martin DB5 from Goldfinger and the Batmobile from the 1960’s TV series were among the most memorable – and popular. Now joining the fleet is Eaglemoss’ first “Build Up” offered to U.S.-based fans, collectors and die-cast enthusiasts – The BACK TO THE FUTURE DeLorean!

Officially authorized by Universal Studios, this easy to build 1:8 scale precision die-cast model is a highly detailed replica of Doc Brown’s DeLorean Time Machine as customized for the first BACK TO THE FUTURE movie and featured prominently throughout the next two films in the trilogy. It builds up issue after issue and is over 20” long, with metal body panels and a wealth of working lights.

No detail has been overlooked. All of Doc’s modifications and personal touches have been reproduced inside and out – from the light up flux capacitor and folding seats to the rear end reactor and mess of cables on the floor.

Fans who visit www.deloreanbuildup.com may subscribe risk-free for the special introductory price of only $1.95 for the first two issues and parts kits – including free shipping. The next four issues and parts kits will be delivered monthly for only $10.95 plus $1.95 shipping per issue. Subscribers are also eligible to receive exclusive gifts worth over $95 and may cancel any time.
Noting the year that the Back to the Future saga started – and returned to at least a few times – the first 1,985nsubscribers to the collection will also receive a limited edition, officially authorized DeLorean exploded diagram poster absolutely free – perfect for display in one’s own garage or secret lab.

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.

    This seems awesome! I wonder how many issues it’s going to take to complete it though? Any idea? Thanks in advance for your time.

    They have a habit of starts and stops on these things, I think its funny they advertise the Batmobile. They cancelled it after part # 4.

  • Daniel says:

    Just FYI – I called them today to ask how many issues it is going to take to complete the car. They told me 120 issues…yes, 120!
