Via Mezco Toyz:
Breaking Bad fans will have a lot to give thanks for on Black Friday (11/29) this year. Mezco will be revealing not only a limited edition Breaking Bad figure, but a new set of limited edition challenge coins, and two sets of ultra limited “platinum” challenge coins.
The new action figure will be limited to just 500 pieces worldwide and will be available exclusively through MezcoToyz.com.
Each set of “platinum” coins will be limited to 100 sets worldwide, and will also be available exclusively at MezcoToyz.com.
Mezco’s first set of Breaking Bad challenge coins were released in early November and sold out within 24 hours. Mezco’s Black Friday sale items will go “live” for online shoppers shortly after midnight(eastern standard time) the morning of Friday 11/29.
Although Mezco cannot yet reveal images or further details of the Black Friday items, Mezco’s director of Special Projects said “These are sure to become some of the most sought after Breaking Bad items that Mezco has ever done. One of the coins has a design that was considered too risqué for retail, but I know it will be a fan favorite so I’m ecstatic that we are able to offer it for Black Friday. The figure is also something the fans have been clamoring for so I am certain the cheers from fans will be audible when we reveal the figure on Black Friday”.
Mezco presents a series of limited edition of Breaking Bad challenge coins that are sure to be prized by fans and become the focal point of any collection.
Challenge coins have a rich history, extending back to WW1 they have been used to show allegiance and build camaraderie. The producers of the renowned, award winning television series Breaking Bad distributed a limited number of coins to the cast and crew each year as a keepsake to commemorate producing another season of what some was hailed and the best tv show ever. These coins have become highly sought after collectibles, with some selling for thousands of dollars each.
Each of Mezco’s brass coins is crafted by skilled artisans who are experts in coinage. Each layer of colored enamel is applied by hand before the firing process, the finished coins are durable hard finish, and a protective crystal clear case is included to keep each coin in mint condition.
Altogether, six different styles of coins will be produced. Each is a limited edition of 200. All will feature the Breaking Bad logo on the reverse (tails) and a unique design on the obverse (heads).
MezcoToyz.com’s offering of Heisenberg style skull along with a logo often seen on some well-known 55 gallon drums has already sold out, but additional designs are available from select retailers while supplies last:
BB Toy Store is offering coins featuring the logo of Walter White’s car wash:
Vegas Dead Dolls is offering coins featuring Saul’s license plate as well as coins celebrating a popular chicken franchise
and Fugitive Toys will be offering coins paying tribute to everyone’s favorite pink teddy bear
The coins will be delivered mid-December, making them the perfect stocking stuffer for lucky Breaking Bad fans! But with editions of only 200 of each coin, fans will have to act fast!
