Death, Taxes, and Unchecked Aggression


Well, the Bif Bang Pow! love fest keeps rolling on. As if a nod of approval from New York magazine wasn't enough, our Urban Achiever Vinyl Dude and Walter have just been featured in the July/August issue of Death + Taxes magazine! We're number 2 on their list of 'Toys of Summer', and once again we're in good company with an unbreakable flask and a six pack of Newcastle. Hmmm, wonder if they're trying to tell us something....Anyway, run out and get your copy and be like the rest of the cool kids. It's a great magazine, and obviously it's editors have exceptional taste.

Lebowski takes Manhattan


Lenzi here again, with a bit more info for the masses. Now I don't want this blog to turn into 'Stan's Soapbox' or anything, but there's a little bit of Lebowski Buzz that's occured recently that we here at BBP have been too modest to mention. But gosh darnit, I think it's so flippin' cool that I can't contain myself any longer. In addition to the numerous websites, action figure magazines and comic publications that have been spreading the gospel of Bif Bang Pow! and it's two fantastic first properties in recent months, there's one notable publication that has put us on a map of a different kind. In the May 14th issue of New York Magazine, The Big Lebowski action figures made it onto their Approval Matrix, in the LOWBROW: BRILLIANT section, natch. And we here at BBP are bursting with pride. The Dude making it into the same category as the Sandman, Elliot Smith and 'Heroes'? I'd say, without hesitation, that we've definitely arrived......
