Pimp my Flash!


Just to prove we've well and truly 'arrived' on the scene, here's a ringing endorsement from UK Flash Gordon fan, Guy (actually a pseudonym for 'pathetic earthling'), along with the result of his work:

"I'm awaiting series two with baited breath - in the meantime thought you might like to see my attempt at a Flash custom from his whip duel with Barin. He'll do until you make an exclusive..."

Thanks Guy! What about the rest of you? Any pics you wanna send in of BBP! figures "in action"?

The opinions are coming in...

"Just wanted to drop you a line and say congratulations on your Flash Gordon figure line (which finally hit UK specialty stores this month). It's one of my all-time favorite films and you guys have really outdone yourselves on the sculpting, paint and quality of these figures. And you gave Flash proper articulation! Please do the same for Prince Barin!" - Gordon A.

"You and your team's hard work is definitely paying off. Flash Gordon fans have been dying for collectibles for nearly thirty years, and BBP has made it worth the wait. I don't know that a line has captured an artist's style and actors' likenesses as perfectly as this series." - S Walden.

Iconic Endorsement

"As a company that has experienced 10 years of fighting to bring to market products from cult film and TV shows, we were only too aware of the struggle that lay ahead for Bif Bang Pow!. Well, the guys stuck with it – and thank God they did! The results are fantastic.

The first release of Ming and Flash are beautifully realized models of these two classic characters. They didn’t compromise along the way and their attention to detail and exhaustive research has really paid off.

If this is an indication of the quality of future releases, then I for one can’t wait!"

When Alex Ross talks, we listen...

"It's always satisfying when the final product you've collaborated on comes out as beautifully as I feel the Flash Gordon figures have. Bif Bang Pow! and Entertainment Earth put a lot of time and energy into making this product one of the more exciting payoffs of my interaction with toy-making." - Alex Ross

Joe Trohman Rocks with Bif Bang Pow!

"Bif Bang Pow! has already made some of the most amazing (and some of my favorite) toys I've come across in the past years. The attention to detail is amazing, and the fact of the matter is, they're fans of what you love, and they take it to the next level by making toys you genuinely want to have in your collection. They have the fans in mind, which is a huge deal." - Joe Trohman, Fall Out Boy

Flash Gordon Wave 2 Approaching!

Hello everyone, Jason Lenzi here again with some news many of you have been waiting for. After lots of discussions and much character debate, Wave 2 of our Flash Gordon: The Movie action figures are going into production. Alex Ross has feverishly toiled away on detailed design sheets for the next four (yes, four!) figures in the line. Wave 1 has been, by all accounts, a success, and folks are chomping at the bit to know about the next characters. We couldn't keep you in suspense much longer, so I get to spill the news. Wave 2 will consist of: Prince Barin-rightful heir to the throne of Mongo, and played by the dashingly handsome Timothy Dalton (star of two of the best Bond films ever made, and 'Hot Fuzz'); Dale Arden- played by the lovely Melody Anderson, Flash's main squeeze will be in her wedding dress from right off the poster; Klytus- Ming's Dr. Doom-ish right hand man, played with sleazy relish by Peter Wyngarde; and of course, Flash Gordon himself, this time in his iconic FLASH t-shirt. So now that you know, we suggest you pre-order these beauties right away, because Wave 1 is almost a distant memory (25 sets of Wave 1 remain - that's it folks). Get over to EE now! If you need any convincing, have a gander at Alex's drawing of Dale (coming soon...). Need we say more??
