Gordon's Alive!!


Hey true believers-er, I mean, Bif Bang Pow-ers, Jason Lenzi coming at you with some more out of this world news (see what I did there?). Our boys, Mr. Gordon and Mr. Merciless, have gone and done it: they've made it onto a list of their own. Obviously a little tired and a fair bit jealous of all the press Lebowski and Sobchack have been getting of late, they've headed on over to the offices of Sci Fi Magazine and made their presence known. Yes folks, the warm vibes of the BBP train keep rolling through the ether, 'cause in the brand new October issue of Sci Fi Magazine (the official publication of the Sci Fi Channel, don't cha know) Flash and Ming action figures have placed in the top ten of their monthly Watch List. And look who we're rubbing shoulders with: JJ Abrams, Optimash Prime and Supes himself. Once again, we find ourselves in esteemed company, and we couldn't be more proud. Until, of course, all of YOU get your sets of Flash and Ming, when we'll really know we've made it! Run out and grab a copy of the ish when ya can, it's a super cool mag and always has plenty of hip stuff to put on your radar. Like cool new action figures, for example. 'Nuff said.

SCCC 2007: They came, they saw, they took the Dude..


Hey True Believers and Achievers of all ages and sizes, Lenzi here, back at BBP headquarters after an exciting and fruitful Comic Con experience. Each year it seems to get more and more hectic down there, and 2007 was no exception. This was our first year with an exclusive, the Dude Talking Bobble head, and I'm happy to say it was a success. We sold out of him by Saturday! Now, fear not, because there's still a chance to get your grubby little hands on him, but ya have ta hurry. What little we have left are over at Entertainment Earth, so follow the link ( www.entertainmentearth.com) and snap one up. Or how's about getting two, Labour Day is coming up, I'm sure there's someone on your gift list that needs the Dude's words of wisdom. And while I'm at it, I should mention that our Alex Ross edition Flash and Ming are a limited run, so pre-order now! I also wanted to take a moment to thank as many folks as I can for making BBP's time down at SDCC a great experience again, including all the fans that came by to give praise and wish the lines well, Daniel Pickett over at Action Figure Insider for inviting me to be on his panel on Friday, and all the other guys on said panel: (you made a newcomer to the game feel very welcome, thanks for the compliments), Zach Oat of Toy Fare Magazine for always showing support, and last but not least, Daniel, Tricia, and Frank for helping us get to where we're at. There's alot that's going to be happening in the coming year, so watch this space to see all the tricks we have up our sleeves. And if you thought this year's exclusive was cool, just you wait......
