[singlepic=746,320,240,,left]Master Replicas, the company formerly known as Corgi, formerly know as Master Replicas, must currently though of as defunct is still alive and kicking. Sure, they lost the Star Wars license, and the whole Corgi deal wasn’t what they wanted it to be. Then there’s the layoffs, and the press black out. Well, apparently, they have not given up the fight and they will be coming out swinging with a potentially great license. Check out their press release:
Master Replicas is pleased to announce its forthcoming line of prop replicas based on Columbia Pictures’ hugely popular film franchise, Ghostbusters.
“We are extremely excited to be able to enter the Ghostbusters paranormal world”, explains CEO Michael Cookson “If you’ve always dreamed owning an officially licensed “unlicensed nuclear accelerator” or are just looking for innovative collectibles that will remind you of the legendary antics of Ray, Egon, Peter and Winston, the Master Replicas range will offer a wealth of choices.”
Working closely with Sony Pictures Consumer Products, Master Replicas will work its magic to ensure authenticity and accuracy. Master Replicas initial Ghostbusters product range will include authentic limited edition prop replicas as well as a few “surprises” just in time for the 25th anniversary of this pop-culture property.
The “keymaster” and “gatekeeper” are conspiring to release the first wave of products in May 2009. For a complete listing of products and a few “sneak peek” images, please visit us at http://www.masterreplicas.com/ on Halloween (October 31st) 2008.
