WAR MACHINE MARKETING OFFICIAL, EXCLUSIVE PANTERA MERCHANDISE AT SDCC 2018

SAN DIEGO COMIC CON RUNS FROM 7/18 TO 7/22 IN SAN DIEGO, CA – WMM BOOTH #1415

 

Los Angeles, CA – “I’ve been a huge PANTERA fan since 1991.  Their records hold such a unique place in my heart and were there to help me through the ups and downs of life.  I not only wanted to make a tribute to this band I love so much but to also honor Dimebag Darrell and his legacy in music. However, now with the passing of his brother, Vinnie Paul, we feel that this tribute is even more important than for fans. It has made what was going to be a celebration of the band and their meaning to everyone into a bittersweet tribute to the Abbott brothers,” explains CEO of War Machine Marketing, Ro Kohli.

The tribute he speaks of is War Machine Marketing’s special San Diego Comic Con run of PANTERA mini guitars, made in conjunction with AXE HEAVEN, themed to some of the band’s most popular albums.  The following officially sanctioned and numbered mini-guitars, based on the titles of PANTERA albums, will be available in the following quantities.

These are available individually…
VULGAR DISPLAY OF POWER: Qty: 333
FAR BEYOND DRIVEN: QTY: 333
GREAT SOUTHERN TRENDKILL: QTY 333

These are only available as part of an entire set…
FAR BEYOND BOOTLEG: QTY: 150
GREAT SOUTHERN TRENDKILL (ALT COVER): QTY 150

There will be 30 sets of all 5 guitars available and 36 each of the 3 main guitars available each day.  Due to the extremely limited nature of these guitars, a raffle will be held each day to determine the order of who can purchase them.

In addition to these limited-edition mini-guitars, an even more limited-edition tribute item is being created for all the dedicated fans that buy a set of the mini-guitars at San Diego Comic Con.

“We had been working on these guitars for the last 3 months and are so happy with how amazing they look. My goal has been to make an exclusive item that no one’s ever made before to tie us all back together to THE MUSIC. No matter what your political affiliation, your ethnicity, your background…PANTERA’s music ties us ALL together and looks beyond all the trivialities of our differences. We feel that this is now the ultimate tribute to the band, to the brothers, and to the world they opened up for their fans.” says Kohli.

He concludes with “REST IN PEACE VINNIE PAUL & DIMEBAG DARRELL…Gone but never forgotten.”

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.
