Greenlight – GreenLight and STP® are Gearing Up Together!
January 24, 2017
INDIANAPOLIS, IN (January 2017) – GreenLight Collectibles is proud to announce that it has entered into a license agreement with Spectrum Brands’ Global Auto Care Division to manufacture, market, and sell STP® die-cast collectibles.
In 1954 Charles Dwight (Doc) Liggett, Jim Hill, and Robert Dehart began packaging STP® Oil Treatment in a backyard garage.  Since then, for over 60 years and countless miles, STP® has become one of the most trusted names in automotive care.  Everyone from the casual driver to professional racers have relied on STP®’s proven products from oil and fuel additives to brake fluid to motor oil.  Besides providing high quality automotive care products, STP® has also sponsored some of the most recognizable names in racing, which allows GreenLight to produce some of the most requested and sought out die-cast vehicles.
With this licensing agreement GreenLight will be able to continue to provide collectors and fans with new and exciting high quality die-cast vehicles. One vehicle currently in the product line-up is the STP® decorated 1971 Dodge Charger – item #41010-E in the Running on Empty Series 1.
With the news of the new GreenLight and STP® licensing agreement going around, GreenLight employees are excited to produce some great brand-new STP® die-cast collectibles. GreenLight VP of Licensing and Product Development Matt Elliott said, “Collectors have been requesting STP® vehicles for a while now, we are all excited to see what new products will be made available with this recent licensing agreement.”

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 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,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, 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.
