Manufacturer Releases the First in a Line of All-New Action Figures and Bobble Heads Based on the ABC Series
LOS ANGELES, CA (June 25, 2009) – Bif Bang Pow! unveils the first in a line of collectibles based on the immensely popular ABC series Lost at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2009. And there's more to come with a special array of bobble heads and articulated action figures with story-specific accessories already in the works.
The creepy and enigmatic Benjamin "Ben" Linus is the first to be released in bobble head form, available exclusively at the Entertainment Earth booth (#2343) at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2009, July 23-26. Based on recent storylines from the show, he comes bruised and bloodied with his arm in a sling… but you wouldn't want him any other way! He stands on a Dharma Initiative logo base and comes in Dharma Initiative packaging. Only 1,008 pieces of this Comic-Con Exclusive will be produced. (Retail price: $17 including tax - while supplies last - limit two per person.)
"The twists, turns, and multiple threads that characterize Lost give rise to a host of distinctive and unforgettable characters. These characters lend themselves to the creation of unique figures and accessories that have terrific fan appeal and serve to memorialize this exceptional TV series," said Jason Lenzi, CEO of Bif Bang Pow! "We're thrilled to be bringing new bobble heads and poseable action figures to market in the vein of what Bif Bang Pow! has done with licenses in the past. As always with Lost and Bif Bang Pow!, expect the unexpected!"
Lost stars Naveen Andrews as Sayid, Henry Ian Cusick as Desmond, Jeremy Davies as Daniel Faraday, Michael Emerson as Ben, Matthew Fox as Jack, Jorge Garcia as Hurley, Josh Holloway as Sawyer, Yunjin Kim as Sun, Ken Leung as Miles, Evangeline Lilly as Kate, Elizabeth Mitchell as Juliet, and Terry O’Quinn as Locke. Lost was created by Jeffrey Lieber and J.J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof. Abrams, Lindelof, Bryan Burk, Carlton Cuse, Jack Bender, Edward Kitsis, and Adam Horowitz serve as executive producers. Lost, which is filmed entirely on location in Hawaii and premiered on September 22, 2004, is from ABC Studios.
