eFX Unveils NY Comic-Con “Agents of SHIELD” Exclusive
September 13, 2013

With the debut of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC just days away, eFX Inc. is marking the historic occasion with a New York Comic-Con exclusive edition of its replica Phil Coulson S.H.I.E.L.D. agent badge and ID card.  As a New York Comic-Con exclusive, fans can join the ranks of S.H.I.E.L.D. – at least, they’ll have the credentials to prove it.  (Getting past security may be a whole different matter.)

The metal badge is made from the original master molds of the screen-used badge, and the ID card is made from the original digital files.  It comes in a real leather ID wallet, which is embossed with the S.H.I.E.L.D. emblem.

In addition to the replica of this incredible prop, the NYCC-exclusive convention edition includes a personalized S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent ID card.

Beginning 9 a.m. Pacific time (12 p.m. Eastern) Tuesday morning, Sept. 17, at www.efxcollectibles.com, a limited number of the badges and personalized ID cards will be available for pre-order to attendees for pick-up at New York Comic-Con, which will help avoid waiting in line during the convention.

Fans who order can send a photo of themselves, along with their name and birth date, to eFX for their personalized S.H.I.E.L.D. ID card.  (Personal information will be kept private and will not be sold or used for marketing purposes.)  Each badge is $50.  Personalized, pre-order ID cards and badges must be picked up on site during New York Comic-Con (October 10-13).

The Exclusive, personalized edition will also be available for purchase on location at the NYCC eFX booth, #1869.

As a unique collectible or as an early holiday gift, the limited edition of 1,500 pieces of the New York Comic-Con Exclusive Edition ensures that the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. personalized badge will be truly one of a kind!

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.
