Fanattik celebrates its 15th anniversary in Blockbuster style.

Fanattik, the award-winning gift and collectibles company, celebrated its 15th anniversary in style this week with a special screening of the all-new Jurassic World Dominion, a film for which the company is also a merchandising partner.

The North West pop culture company has taken over the Art Deco cinema ‘The Rex’ near its UK headquarters for private screening. Attendees included studio reps, vendors, and influencers who all enjoyed seeing various franchise props during the event.

It is no coincidence that the film Jurassic World was chosen for the event. “It was signing our licensing deal with Universal Studios all those years ago for the Jurassic Park franchise that set Fanattik on the path to where we are today, and I wanted to pay homage to the franchise on our first anniversary. Anthony Marks, Fanattik MD

Award-winning Fanattik is an official licensing partner for some of the biggest film and video game studios in the entertainment world, including Konami, Universal Studios, Bethesda, Capcom, Paramount Studios, Microsoft and many more. The company also creates exclusive products for retailers across Europe and distributes gift ranges featuring Star Wars and Marvel.

Before the start of the film, Anthony took the stage where, in a moving speech, he thanked the entire Fanattik team, his colleagues who helped the company grow from a sole proprietorship working in a spare room to what is now a global player in pop culture.

We really love what we do, fans can see the effort we put into every product we create”. – Melissa Tudor, Creative Director, Fanattik

AFi’s founder and editor, Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett, has been surrounded by toys his entire life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Superhero line in the 70s. He’s been surrounded by collectibles ever since. In 1999 he was baffled by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite lines of toys he collected. Since he couldn’t find the information, he decided to search for it himself, thinking that other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and an action figure for a toy news site and within a year he tripled the site’s daily traffic with his updates, reviews and features. of products. He has established relationships with all the major toy manufacturers and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He has turned his hobby into a global expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they started their own website Daniel has been quoted both in the industry and in the mass media. Over the years, Daniel and AFi have been sought after as experts in the field. Daniel has been featured regularly on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 Network as a top contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our homepage has been linked to USA’s “Pop Candy” blog twice.
