GreenLight Starts the New Year in Hot Pursuit of Collectible Success

GreenLight Collectibles releases 1:64 Hot Pursuit Series 9 as the first new series of 2012

Indianapolis, IN (December 28, 2011) In order to set the mood for a successful 2012, GreenLight has one of their best sellers leading the pack into the New year – 1:64 Hot Pursuit. This law enforcement themed product line was the sell through spectacle to watch this past year. It performed exceptionally on every level of the supply chain and kept cranking out the superior standard on which all other police collectible die cast replicas are measured.

Each department replicated in Hot Pursuit has to grant GreenLight the permission to produce their name and likeness. Acquiring the approval through direct contacts within the department allows for GreenLight to obtain official photos for use in authentically replicating the fleet vehicle. Sometimes acquiring this permission can cause a problem, but as Hot Pursuit has gained more popularity, more police departments have been approaching GreenLight to replicate their vehicles. Making sure that Hot Pursuit stays hot will entice more departments to grant their permissions in the future.

Series 9 is expected to perform in the same sell through spectacular manor as its predecessors as it is packed with brand new departments and castings. 1:64 Hot Pursuit Series 9 will include the new 2011 Ford Explorer. This is the first use of this tooling in Westfield Indiana Law Enforcement livery.

These 1:64 die-cast replicas feature detailed engines, real rubber tires, metal body and chassis, detailed graphics, custom license plates and are officially licensed by the respective auto manufacturers. The release is scheduled for January 2012 and will be available through official GreenLight official hobby shops and wholesale dealers, as well as at Toys ‘R’ Us and Meijer.

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.
