Return from Comic Con

Holy Shmoly Batman, what a show! That SDCC will really tire you out, but in a good way. We had a great time meeting all of you that could make it and it was a super mix of people too from the 501st, our stores and newbies to our line. It was all quite exciting, even if we did have to scream over the Old Republic trailer all day (which was way cool BTW).

Thanks to all of you for the great and encouraging comments. We're glad our hard work is being noticed and we can't wait to start shipping all the cool products from Star Wars, Marvel (the RT unit & Wolverine jacket were smash hits) plus Conan.

NEWS!
We're absolutely thrilled to announce (to those who follow our awesome blogs first) that we have secured an 8 picture deal with Warner Bros for the Harry Potter franchise. I'll wait for you to sit down...catch your breath...there, now isn't that better? Every character from every movie given the same meticulous treatment to screen authenticity for costumes/clothing that we're giving to Star Wars. Even you Muggles can buy these official Hogwarts replicas. Beginning spring 2010.

Soooo, I guess it's time to get to work huh? These great pieces won't make themselves and we certainly want them (a few at least) available for Xmas!

Off to Comic Con!

Luuuke, I am your tailor...

"Nooooooooooooooooo!" It's true, and we're so proud we could pull the ears off a Gundar.

Excited isn't the word, we can't wait for you to see the Star Wars world come to life like never before. Add in Hyboria and the Marvel Universe and you've got a pretty lethal combination. Speaking of lethal our Terminator jacket will be there too. The best part about our costumes and props are that they are REAL and you can wear most of the items for total immersion. Yep, we think it's cool too. I'll try to give updates while we're at the show, but you know how it is once there, nothing but work, work, work. =)

Well we're off to SDCC to show the world the galaxy has a new tailor.

Museum Replicas and Atlanta Cutlery Alive and Well!

We've gotten a bit carried away telling you about all the great licensed stuff coming from Conan, Marvel, Star Wars, Assassin's Creed 1&2, World of Warcraft, Braveheart...gasp...must...catch...breath...Sleepy Hollow, Tudors, Prince Valiant...gasp...Flash Gordon - OK you get the idea, that we failed to tell you about all the new historical and original fantasy clothing and weapons.

While perusing the site take a look at Blacksword, the Spear of Destiny, Celtic Skull Dagger, Necromancer, jewelry and many new gowns for you neglected ladies. Looking regal was never easier and you deserve it. When was the last time your man bought you something nice?

And on ACC don't forget we have great originals and replicas from our own history from the Civil War to present. From clothing, knives and genuine military, current issue sabers to holsters, belts and a myriad of accessories.

Hey our other items need love too.

So here we are again and loving every minute of it!

SDCC:
We know tickets are scarce and even if you could find one you may not be able to go. We feel your pain and will be updating our website with pre-order pages for cool items like Star Wars that will debut at the Con. Each year we'll try to bring a bit more of the show to you at home.

A small reward for visiting us though will come in the form of a Museum Replicas gift card. We'll be giving them out FREE to anyone coming by our booth (one per person, yeah I see you plotting...) which will have a value anywhere from $10-$100, no choice. Kinda like playing the lottery except everyone wins. It's good on any purchase until used up and is even good on your pre-orders!

WOW Progress Report:
There are some Horde & Alliance tabards and battle flags ready to roll for this fall and possibly a weapon or two. Fun for all ages, stay tuned and we'll keep you updated right here.

ACC & MRL:
If you happen to be new to us (which I can't imagine since we've been around since 1943 and in the US since 1971) don't forget to contact our Atlanta Cutlery / Museum Replicas catalogue companies to get some free catalogs sent out to you. We really do some amazing historical clothing for men & women, weapons, armor, etc. and the catalogues cover periods from early Greece through WWII. That includes the Crusades, Vikings, Renaissance and much more. Call 800-883-8838- wow, we cover the call too? Guess your excuses just got used up.

San Diego Comic Con & Other News

Did you miss us? We told you we'd be back and hope you find our little info source a good daily fix not only for our products, but with news of all sorts that is mostly relevant.

NEWS:
We are proud to announce our latest partnership with Paramount Pictures! We have secured the license for props and clothing/costumes from the classic Braveheart and Sleepy Hollow hits. Yes, we know a few things have drifted out through the years, but you'd be surprised when you do your homework how, ah, not entirely accurate they are in either design, materials or both.

If you want what Mel Gibson, Johnny Depp or Christina Ricci really wore (in the movie that is) you'll get it here. Plus Simon Atherton, the prop armorer who did the set work for Braveheart, has worked hand-in-hand with us to make our sword the best and most definitive version available. FREEDOM!

We didn't fully realize how cool all the outfits were in these movies and we couldn't wait to get our hands on this project. The Sleepy Hollow items are great for Victorian and Steampunk as well. Coming late 2009. Don't make me send the headless horseman after you, just buy the stuff alright?

San Diego:
If you didn't get your ticket for Comic Con in San Diego July 22-26 this year you can't get it now either. It sold out ages ago, but at least let me tell you what you would have seen if you could go:

MARVEL - Tony Stark's RT unit (light-up "heart"), his Iron Man 03 helmet and Hugh Jackman's incredible leather motorcycle jacket & dog tag from X-1. Each replica made absolutely real, in authentic materials and cool as $#$%^!

STAR WARS - fully approved outfits for pre-sale, yep they'll see their debut. Imperial Officers (green & black), Obi-wan, Luke, Padme and some teases as well.

CONAN - our newest polyurethane armor and weapons made specifically for the greatest barbarian of all time! The first, one and only officially licensed Conan set endorsed by the Robert E. Howard Estate. Whooooooo!

Of course you'll see more as well if you're one of the lucky ones to make it out, but best of all you get the chance to meet our great staff including me. Who wouldn't want that? At our booth you'll meet Pradeep & Ranit Windlass, two owners of the Windlass companies, Dave DiPietro Products & Marketing Director and Robin Chaudhuri VP of Licensing and National Sales Manager. Booth 2913N in the Lucasfilm pavilion, but enough about us...

Have a grrreat weekend.

We're back!

Hello all you patient, patient, patient fans of movie collectibles, history, TV and blah blah blah. Did we mention patient and how much we appreciate that?

We've fixed our watches, bought new calendars and well, we've got our $#@% together and have brought our blogging in-house from the tech side of things, which means we can bug you regularly with updates on new products, licenses and other exciting news you need to know.

Did You Know?
The 25th anniversary of The Terminator is this year (yeah, you're that old) and the amazing jacket replicas are now shipping. Remember that these are limited to manufacture for this year only. It's the very first time an accurate, screen worn version has been properly researched and made so if you like The Terminator, Arnie or just cool motorcycle jackets act soon. Unlike The Terminator, these won't be back.


Gen-X:
For all of you gamers we're there for you. We've secured the rights to Assassin's Creed 1 & 2, Age of Conan and World of Warcraft. Great props, costumes & LARP items will bring these worlds to life like never before.

Tease:
Wow, that Iron Man 2 stuff is amazing...don't worry we'll bring it out for you soon. Like Stark Industries we're doing our R&D now. We can't wait to launch the new line in 2010.

So you see, we haven't been sitting idle (OK, sometimes we have), but the point is we've got some amazing stuff coming and you need to stay plugged in to know about it.

Stop blubbering, we missed you too.
