Factory Entertainment, Inc., announced this week that the company has entered into a multi-year licensing agreement with Apple Corps Limited to once again produce collectibles based on the legendary musical group The Beatles and their landmark animated film, Yellow Submarine.
In the past, Factory produced some really cool items like the Alex Ross Yellow Submarine tin totes (seen right), and that relationship has been renewed. Factory Entertainment expects to release its first new Beatles collectibles in early 2019. Product categories include: Collectible metal miniatures; Plush (seen below in prototype form); Statues; Tin Totes; Towels; Bath Toys; Keychains; and Bottle Openers.
All products will be available on Factory Entertainment’s website as well as from various online and brick and mortar retailers.
“We are incredibly proud to again be working with Apple Corps to produce a line of high-quality Beatles collectibles” said Jordan Schwartz, President and CEO of Factory Entertainment. “Not only do we plan to revisit some of our ”greatest hits,” but we will be debuting new items that are sure to please Beatles fans of every age. As fans ourselves, we consider the opportunity to produce Beatles products a tremendous privilege.”
Not content with that, Factory has also entered into a multi-year licensing agreement with CBS Consumer Products to produce collectibles for all Star Trek movie and TV titles.
Factory Entertainment expects to release its first new Star Trek collectibles in Summer 2019. Product categories include: KUZOS™ Collectible Metal Miniatures; REVOS™ Stylized Vinyl Figures; Pawzplay™ Collector Plush; Desktop Environments; Bottle Openers; and Wine Stoppers. We don’t have any images for these yet, but they may unveil some at Toy Fair this weekend.
“As lifelong fans, we are incredibly thrilled to be partnering with CBS Consumer Products to create new Star Trekcollectibles,” said Jordan Schwartz, President and CEO of Factory Entertainment. “We’re particularly excited to bring the iconic Star Trekcharacters and imagery to Factory Entertainment’s proprietary KUZO™, REVO™ and Pawzplay™ lines.”
Factory Entertainment’s Star Trek collectibles will also be sold on their website, and at various retailers.
