Mezco Presents Breaking Bad Limited Edition Challenge Coins
November 13, 2013

New York- Mezco presents a series of limited edition of Breaking Bad challenge coins that are sure to be prized by fans and become the focal point of any collection.

Challenge coins have a rich history, extending back to WW1 they have been used to show allegiance and build camaraderie.  The producers of the renowned, award winning television series Breaking Bad distributed a limited number of coins to the cast and crew each year as a keepsake to commemorate producing another season of what some was hailed and the best tv show ever. These coins have become highly sought after collectibles, with some selling for thousands of dollars each.

Each of Mezco’s brass coins is crafted by skilled artisans who are experts in coinage.  Each layer of colored enamel is applied by hand before the firing process, the finished coins are durable hard finish, and a protective crystal clear case is included to keep each coin in mint condition.

Altogether, six different styles of coins will be produced.

Each is a limited edition of 200.

All will feature the Breaking Bad logo on the reverse (tails) and a unique design on the obverse (heads)

MezcoToyz.com will be offering a Heisenberg style skull along with a logo often seen on some well-known 55 gallon drums. They can be pre-ordered individually or as a set here:

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.
