Hey gang, finally getting a minute to check in and I wanted to share a few things with you here, first. I've been pretty busy with a great group of guys over at Paragon FX Group. Paragon is a new replica company and I think you're gonna really like how they're doing things.

For starters, No Pre-Orders. Crazy right?! A company that actually won't take your cash and leave you waiting. Paragon won't even announce a given run until the primary engineering has been completed. Items will not go on sale until they are physically landed in the country. Period. We've all seen how the pre-order model works and we've seen where it's gone wrong. Time for something new and simple. Sign up if you like something with no obligation at all. No partial deposits, either. Just your hand in the air. This is what we all wanted, so win!

With that, the new site (up and still a work in progress) serves as a 'coming Soon' catalog of sorts. All you have to do (if you like something) is join the interest list for whatever items you dig on. This is important because when the product is available for purchase, Paragon will go down the list in the order in which people joined and offer them the opportunity to buy before a product is made available to the general public. With such low numbers being produced on the majority of their first items, one can see how some replicas may well be spoken for before a sale date is actually announced. This is covered in depth on the site's FAQ Frequently Asked Questions

Like I said, I've got a little time this weekend so I want to share some thoughts after I show a few things off...you can visit paragon at Paragon FX Group

Soooo, let's start here.

The 89 modular utility unit ranks right up there as one of the more complex pieces I've been involved with over the years. It took about 6 months to get this factory master all worked out. What you see here is nothing but machined metal... The grapple will feature multiple attachments. This fully licensed piece will be released with the grapnel hook and the bolo attachment in a custom equipment case.

Next up, The 66 Bat-Shield...I'm actually sitting next to the first product sample of this piece right now. More to come soon on this. This thing is so large and heavy that it's going to come in a custom equipment case...with things being so slow overseas right now, a number of these items will have their edition sizes and prices announced after they're on the water and in route.

Click on the thumbnail. Trying not to blow the page out, lol.

Another fun one. "The Goonies Adventure Set" is currently in production. More pics to come as the map and final factory samples are wrapped up. The Copper Bones key and the doubloon will be in metal and the map on heavy parchement. A good time working with the studio who provided a wrap-map for this project.

Not that you're soliciting for product requests, but if there's ANY WAY you guys can do a screen accurate folding batarang, that would be tremendous. Every single offering out there is a recast or a retool of the SDStudios piece, which makes a couple egregious errors, all of which are replicated out on each instance. Makin' me crazy!

Please do this iconic piece of batman weaponry justice. SOMEONE HAS GOTTA DO IT!!
