From the press:
TORONTO, Ontario, Canada (October 1, 2009) – Conveying the strength, elegance and awesome power of The Dark Knight, UD Replicas – the officially licensed division of Universal Designs Ltd. – has begun production on a replica Dark Knight Motorcycle Suit, and orders are being taken at the company’s website, www.udreplicas.com.
Produced under license from Warner Bros. Consumer Products on behalf of DC Comics, the Universal Designs Dark Knight Motorcycle Suit is a stunning recreation of one of the most iconic movie costumes of all time. The Dark Knight Motorcycle Suit comprises a full-leather jacket that includes lightweight interior lining, as well as molded-leather and Kevlar armor sections; pants that include heavy-duty, four-way stretch Spandex inserts and CE-approved armor; authentic gloves and boots that replicate the amazing on-screen design.
Each Dark Knight Motorcycle Suit can be customized to fit sizes ranging from XXS to XXL. Orders can be placed exclusively at www.udreplicas.com, and each Dark Knight Motorcycle Suit retails for $998 U.S. (or $1,149 CDN for orders placed in Canada, United Kingdom and Australia). A maximum of 1,000 Dark Knight Motorcycle Suits will be created.
“No film of the 21st century has been as visually stunning as The Dark Knight, and we’re proud to be working directly with Warner Bros. Consumer Products to ensure accuracy and authenticity in every custom-made Motorcycle Suit,” said David Pea, owner of Universal Designs. “The Dark Knight is one of the highest-grossing movies all time, and continues to spark the imagination of fans everywhere.”
The Dark Knight Motorcycle Suit is an intricate, complex design, he added – one that has required the company to invent entirely new ways of working. “Although we are strictly limiting the quantity to 1,000 suits worldwide, we want each one to be of extraordinarily high quality, and that has meant creating new machinery and new production methods,” Pea said. “We couldn’t be bigger fans of Batman and the world in which he lives and we know fans share that passion and the expectation of extremely high quality, so we’re very proud that Warner Bros. Consumer Products has given us such remarkable access to the original suit and the designs used in the production of the movie.”
