Casting Call: Collectors Documentary

March 2013 - We've gotten word of another casting call for collectors! This particular show is casting in Denver and several other cities in the United States. If you are interested in being featured on the show, contact [email protected].

I work for a television company that is making an exciting new documentary series that celebrates fascinating collectors and collections from across North America.

In the 14 episodes of "Collectors" we pay tribute to private collections and the dedicated people who assemble them: anything from rare sports artifacts to vintage salt and pepper shakers, from antique clocks to action figure memorabilia - and everything in between.

I am reaching out to you because we would love to feature an avid toy collector and his/her collection.

"Collectors" is hosted by Andrew Zegers, an appraiser and collector from "Antiques Roadshow Canada." Our first episode showcased a broad range of collections from vintage toys to high-end hats, from all kinds of Wonder Woman memorabilia to several hundred snow globes amassed by actor Corben Bernsen of "L.A. Law."

Marvel Select Nightcrawler Bamfs into New Packaging Photos!

March 2013 - With the Marvel Select line delivering hit figure after hit figure, Marvel toy collectors have eagerly awaited the next comic-style Select to come out from Diamond Select Toys. And it's almost here!

The offspring of a mutant and a demon, blue-furred acrobat Kurt Wagner has shown the signs of his mixed heritage since he was born, and sculptor Jean St. Jean has brought out the scarier aspects of the X-Men's resident teleporter in this new figure. Nightcrawler stands approximately 7 inches tall with 16 points of articulation, and he comes with a "bamf" cloud base, representing the purple cloud he leaves behind when he teleports.

Check out the new packaging below and pre-order him from your local comic shop, specialty store or your favorite online retailer! Shipping in April!
