Bif Bang Pow! and Entertainment Earth Offer 4th Series of Twilight Zone B&W Figures

BifBangPow LogoA fan-favorite at San Diego Comic-Con, The Twilight Zone 3 ¾-inch Action Figures Series 4 in Color captured the attention of collectors new and old at the show this year. And although we’ve sold out of the colored convention exclusives, you can still complement your collection with Don Carter, Hansen, Jerry and Willie, Alicia, and Marsha White “as seen on TV” in black and white – now available for pre-order at Entertainment Earth.

Designed similar to the action figures released in the ’70s, each retro-styled figure features 5 points of articulation (neck, shoulders, and hips) and showcases a classic character with episode-specific accessories.

The Twilight Zone Don Carter 3 3/4-Inch Action Figure celebrates The Twilight Zone episode “Nick of Time” – featuring William Shatner as Don Carter. This unique figure comes complete with a miniature Mystic Seer inspired by the same fortune-telling machine shown inside the famous Busy Bee Cafe.

The Twilight Zone Jerry and Willie 3 3/4-Inch Action Figure pays homage to The Twilight Zone episode “The Dummy”. This rare figure of the persecuted ventriloquist appropriately comes with his deranged dummy – which also includes 5 points of articulation. But that’s not all… Willie also features a hand slot in the back, so you can pose Jerry and Willie together!

The Twilight Zone Hansen 3 3/4-Inch Action Figure salutes The Twilight Zone episode “A Quality of Mercy” – featuring Leonard Nimoy as Hansen, the radio operator. This exclusive show-inspired figure of the World War II character comes complete with his battlefield accessories: removable helmet, rifle, and field radio that opens to reveal a pull-out phone.

The Twilight Zone Alicia 3 3/4-Inch Action Figure showcases the female robot companion in the heart-wrenching episode “The Lonely.” This rare, limited figure showcases Alicia in her worst moment, after being shot leaving her mechanical facial wiring exposed. Is she just machine or something more? Only you can decide.

The Twilight Zone Marsha White 3 3/4-Inch Action Figure pays tribute to the well-known department store episode “The After Hours” starring Anne Francis. Complete with a stand accessory, you will have to look closely to see if this figure celebrates the female shopper, mannequin… or both!

“Star Trek” 50th Anniversary Collector’s Edition Beer “The Trouble With Tribbles” Nationally Launches at “Star Trek Las Vegas”

star_trek_combadge Following the incredible debut of Star Trek Golden Anniversary Ale: The Trouble With Tribbles at Comic-Con International in San Diego, Shmaltz Brewing Company boldly goes to the “Star Trek Las Vegas” convention at the Rio Hotel & Casino from August 3 – 7, 2016. The national rollout of Golden Anniversary Ale: The Trouble With Tribbles is now underway to 25 states across the country, including California, Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Washington, and many others. At Comic-Con, Golden Anniversary Ale: The Trouble With Tribbles received critical praise from news outlets such as CNET, Nerdist, Eater, and countless others; as well as the brewery’s hometown Albany, NY ABC affiliate station News 10.

This summer and fall, Star Trek celebrates its 50th Anniversary and Shmaltz captures the TV show’s indelible spirit that so many science fiction fans have come to love over the last half century. With The Original Series debuting on NBC in 1966, Star Trek has grown to become the #4 all-time movie franchise broadcasting in over 200 countries and grossing $2.4 billion all-time sales at the box office. CBS Studios has teamed up with Shmaltz Brewing for the only officially licensed Star Trek beers in the United States.

Trekkies attending “Star Trek Las Vegas,” Golden Anniversary Ale: The Trouble With Tribbles will be available at the Rio Hotel & Casino, The Rebel RePUBlic (3540 W Sahara Ave), The Millennium Fandom Bar (900 S Las Vegas Blvd), Lee’s Discount Liquor locations throughout Las Vegas, and Shmaltz will host a special press tasting event on August 3 at the American Bar & Grille within the Rio Hotel & Casino. Please RSVP for the tasting event directly to press@jpcutlermedia.com. In fall 2016, Shmaltz brings their second Star Trek Golden Anniversary Ale: Voyage to the Northeast Quadrant to “Mission New York” at the Javits Center from September 2 – 4, 2016.

Star Trek Golden Anniversary Ale: The Trouble With Tribbles (5 Malts, 5 Hops, 5% ABV)
In the original Star Trek series episode “The Trouble with Tribbles,” the U.S.S. Enterprise is called to protect a shipment of a genetically engineered four-lobe grain that is a hybrid of wheat and rye, called quadrotriticale. Since the year 2269 is still about 250 years in the future, Quadritriticale has yet to be conceived. Thus, Shmaltz brews with triticale for Golden Anniversary Ale: The Trouble With Tribbles.

The first commercial release by Drew Schmidt (Shmaltz Lead Brewer), the longtime Shmaltz brewer comments about the beer, “Light Carastan malt gives some residual sweetness in the form of very light toffee. A dose of Munich adds a slight bready quality, and wheat malt lends to a slight crisp character. Mashing at a moderate temperature gives this beer a medium body. In keeping with the intergalactic theme, hopping is comprised of Comet, Polaris, Aurora and Admiral (Kirk) hops. This beer is only loosely filtered to clarity, in order to preserve the ambiguity of good and evil.”

Star Trek Golden Anniversary Ale: Voyage To The Northeast Quadrant (5 Malts, 5 Hops, 5% ABV)
Recipe designed by 2nd Shift Supervising Brewer Ivan Dedek, Shmaltz’s second offering for Star Trek 50 harnesses a crisp, clean malt character showcased by the use of light Munich malts and brewer’s maize. The aroma is accented by fresh citrus fruits such as lemon and lime with subtle notes of white wine. The crisp malts and fruity aromas are elevated by maintaining a mild bitterness allowing each selected ingredient to offer its individual qualities without being overshadowed by any single ingredient. With 5 malts, 5 hops and 5% ABV, Voyage To The Northeast Quadrant is the perfect brew for any beer lover to toast the 50th Anniversary of such an iconic piece of popular culture.
