Consider yourself repulsed!



No not repulsive, repulsed...oh never mind. Iron Man was the talk of Comic Con and rightly so, Marvel isn't holding anything back in its production. And you know with Stan Winston Studios behind the FX that this is going to be amazing.

Heading into its release this Spring 2008, the prop replicas company heading the charge of must-haves is our very own Windlass Studios division. You will be able to own in a few months what it took Tony Stark years to accomplish (sorry Tony).

Don't let our other Iron Man LE helmets fly by without you grabbing one though. We're taking pre-orders now (shipping in Sept.). You aren't a true fan of Iron Man or a history buff of the Marvel world unless you have the original steel or gold version of the very first helm developed by Stark Industries.

Maybe we should call it the Iron Man collection since for the first time you can own the most iconic pieces in a chronology of development from start to finish. A very unusual opportunity to show the continuity between then and now that we're proud to give you access to.

Remember this is all Top Secret, so keep these props to yourself. There's no telling what this technology could be used for in the wrong hands!

Comic Con 2007



Wow, I hope they're standing in line to see me, uh I mean us! Sold out for the first time ever, Comic Con was a huge success, and we want to thank all you fanatics who visited our booth and for the patience the rest of you showed being dragged along for the ride.

For those of you who couldn't make it, I don't have to tell you how much fun and excitement and great times and all the cool new stuff you missed...do I? (By the way, how do you feel now?) As usual, there were phenomenal products- most from our booth, amazing costumes, beautiful women and handsome men (I suppose).

Start planning your trip for 2008, we'll be there and we fully expect to run into you for more product fun and hectic good times. Geeks unite! Remember, if you missed us, you'll get a second chance at Dragon Con in Atlanta, GA Aug. 31-Sept 3, see you soon. Or visit us at www.windlassstudios.com

The mighty Thor! (plus others)


OK, you've all heard by now about many of the new things being released in the next few months from Marvel and Frank Miller by us, but here is some advanced warning at other products coming in the next wave including World of Warcraft and The Tudors (up for an Emmy for costuming by the way).

Wolverines claws from X2/X3

Iron Man the movie props
Submariners trident
Captain America 1942 shield
Moon Knight crescents
300 & Sin City:

Greek warriors armor
Miho swords and throwing ah, crosses.

Weapons and armor
Clothing, war flags and banners will be first for Xmas.
The Tudors:

They're heeeere...

Well, my Jury Duty is now complete and it's not as easy as it looks. Those of you who've been on criminal cases know what I mean.

Anyway, we're off to ComicCon and you better get out there or at least get those tickets soon, because it's nearly sold out.

You'll be the first to see our new Marvel line, Frank Miller's 300 line, teasers for World of Warcraft and other items. If that doesn't excite you, well then that Viagra booth may have your name on it.

Not only do you get a first peek at these cool new collectibles, but you'll be among the first to order them and get show special pricing. It's a great chance to meet the staff, harass them and talk shop. Really, harass them. I won't be there, so do your worst. (Don't tell them I said that.)

I miss you too...


See what happens when you get me into a court room? Sorry I haven't been around, but I'm currently on Jury Duty and probably will be through Friday. Fun things to report when I get back so take a peek over the weekend.
Off with his head! Just practicing, wait they don't do that anymore do they?

Things have taken a turn...


Let me know if you see us on the map anywhere, because we're lost (in our computer woes). OK, it's slightly better than that, but we do need to take the next few days and work out the kinks. We thought we could do it on the fly, but whoa, were we wrong. Thursday and Friday of this week and through the weekend, we'll be pretty much shut down to focus on things (including new websites). We're very sorry for the inconvenience.
Thanks so much for your understanding and patience. Once we work through the bugs and so forth over the next 4-5 days (we're working through the weekend) everything should be better for you and us. Trust us, all this will be better for the long haul...won't it?

The Attack of the New Software...aaaahhh!!



Hide the women and children, make sure your Wills are up-to-date, kiss your loved ones one last time or love the one you're with (sorry about that last one), we're unleashing the dreaded New Software Monster!

Monster is definitely the right term and it's going as smooth as you might expect. Sooooo, I'm beggin you to be patient while we run the beast to ground. Hopefully you won't ever see the beast rear its ugly head, but if you are one of the unfortunates, just don't look it in the eye.

We're doing our best and should be running smoothly in just a few short months, uh weeks... What? Stop hitting me. Oh, I should tell them days? OK.

Thanks for your understanding, we really will try to get through this with as little disruption to your buying experience as possible, so take heart.

Happy 4th of July!!!!!

First,we'd like to wish a very happy and safe 4th to you and yours from all of us at Atlanta Cutlery, Museum Replicas and Windlass Studios.

For those of you who haven't heard, Windlass Studios is our collectibles arm and responsible for all the super cool licensed products coming from Marvel, World of Warcraft, Frank Miller and others. As if that wasn't fun...I mean work enough, this division will be responsible for historical limited edition pieces too! Some of the greatest conquerors and warriors of our past will be given treatment like never before in strict limited editions forming a cohesive collection that will knock the socks off any fan of history. Will we take a liberty here or there to create a beauty you'll be bragging about for years to come, probably, but only if it enhances the items appeal and/or functionality.

Windlass Studios & Comic Con right around the corner...


Join us for Comic Con out in San Diego if you can, you won't regret it. You'll see our latest prototypes from various licenses and get sneak peeks at future concepts. Hey you can even talk to us! Unfortunately, I won't be there (with Uncle Sam needing me for Jury Duty and all), but you'll probably have a good time anyway.
If you're in the mood for some light reading (bloody, graphic, adventurous, magical, etc.) make sure you visit our friends at Dark Horse Comics. Some of the best titles around like Star Wars, 300 and Hellboy to name a few. Now for something completely different.
Hope you had a great weekend visiting our newest divisions website...what, you don't know about it?
It's still being tweaked, but you can sneak a peak at http://www.windlassstudios.com/
Windlass Studios is our license division and really takes showing our items off seriously. Enjoy.
