GreenLight Collectibles Partners with Lifestyle Brand the Busted Knuckle Garage
April 12, 2019

INDIANAPOLIS (April 11, 2019) – GreenLight Collectibles is excited to announce their collaboration with The Busted Knuckle Garage, an automotive gift company specializing in garage gear, furniture, clothing, and collectibles.

The Busted Knuckle Garage lifestyle brand was coined back in 1996 by founder and president, Warren Tracy. At the time, Tracy was working as a manager of Phantom Ranch at the bottom of the Grand Canyon when he woke up one night with a vision of the injured hand holding a wrench. He quickly sketched it down before going back to sleep, and the rest is history. After quitting the ranch, Tracy’s entrepreneurial drive turned his dream brand into a reality.

There are over 250 different items for sale to date, and The Busted Knuckle Garage is sold through their online store (www.bustedknucklegarage.com), automotive catalogs, national chain stores, and their brick-and-mortar store in Prescott, Arizona.

Warren Tracy was happy to get out from under the hood and express his excitement about the new Busted Knuckle Garage collectibles being produced under license by GreenLight. “Still having most of my own collectibles from the mid ‘60’s, I’m delighted to know that anyone who’s busted a knuckle wrenching on their favorite vehicle will now be able to celebrate mechanical mayhem with a desktop memory of their own. The quality, workmanship and detail of these new models are just simply world’s apart from what was made in the old days. The appeal to both young and old looks to be without limits,” said Tracy.

GreenLight is set to release the Busted Knuckle Garage branded die-cast vehicles in their first series this coming summer. The line-up consists of the following:

  • 39010-A 1:64 Busted Knuckle Garage Series 1 – 1955 Cadillac Fleetwood Series 60 Special “Motor Medic”

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.
