    ANOVOS picks up the high-end Star Wars Costuming License!

    I can be nearly 100% certain of one thing. Disney did NOT "infuse" Anovos with a single cent. I know someone that signed a Disney contract for her employer 10+ years ago and maintains contact with the account. I'm told Disney is frugal, exacting and scrutinizes every expenditure. That has been...

    The Wand Comp: Star Trek Communicator. Sold Out?

    Agreed and if it is on par with the Phaser and Communicator, it'd be a winner. They could make it an "MP4" media player to avoid being labeled as a prop.

    The all black non-canon kit Anovos put out a while back. what would be involved in making it 501st approved? I have one and while it's still boxed, I will eventually get around to it.

    Does the ruling apply to RS naturally and by default or would they hope to seek shelter under it through legal argument? If it is the aforementioned, then the wider issue is anyone can reproduce any prop so long as its 15 years old. I wonder, does that clock start when it first airs or in the...

    ANOVOS picks up the high-end Star Wars Costuming License!

    At the end of the day, it comes down to what those that are eligible to be in the CA want out of it. Some want Anovos to burn, in hell is my guess. Others want their money back and could care less what Anovos does afterwards. Others still want to wait for what was ordered. I would like to have...

    Then how is it 501st approved? I am NOT a sw fan but if there is one thing I've read a billion times, if it get's their approval, it's golden.,

    ANOVOS picks up the high-end Star Wars Costuming License!

    That is both good and bad I suppose. The UK court decision would disturb me as an IP, I'd almost view the UK as I would view china. A hotbed for unlicensed knock off product. I wonder if Lucas or Disney legal explored the angle of going after Ainsworth about shipments sent to the US...

    I wasn't addressing his credibility, the accuracy of his offerings or his level of film involvement. I am only asserting that due to his film involvement, it isn't as clearly black and white as in the case of RS and countless others. For all we know, Ainsworth could have had an agreement similar...

    I read about that but that situation is unique in that it is less defined because Ainsworth isn't just a fan producing them like RS is. I should have clarified, I was referring to high end replica collectibles more so than the Diamond Select variety or non prop related licensed merchandise...

    ANOVOS picks up the high-end Star Wars Costuming License!

    You don't think that Disney/CBS or any other IP might look at the failures of MR, EFX and should it happen, Anovos and decide it is too risky or that the market cap too small? The risk factor just went up after being named in a lawsuit along with their licensee. Granted, Disney and CBS have...

    ANOVOS picks up the high-end Star Wars Costuming License!

    I have a hard time imagining this leading to a smoking gun. I'm not saying one exists or doesn't, just that I have a hard time imagining it being revealed as a result of this lawsuit. I've been closely following another CA suite I could be a party to with the 2016 Z06 overheating at the track...

    You missed a crucial step although I doubt very much it would be decided against the plaintiff given how many customers have been waiting years for their order(s). The judge has to decide there is merit to advance the case to trial. Then and only then is anyone subject to giving a deposition or...

    That is not practical for a business. A garage kit maker? sure. A business with licensing fees and a host of other costs? its impractical.

    Thanks. I had seen this somewhere but lost the link. This one is plastic though, no? They don't say but I recall reasing elsewhere it's not metal.

    Very cool costume. Thanks for the details and the picture..it looks like the costume that was on display recently in Philadelphia at a Marvel event. The one in the listing is 19". That seems small plus the promo video they use for advertising has the Marvel prop master speaking about the prop...
