    you guy's seen this ?

    Earlier today, eFx Collectibles announced that they will release a new line-up of replicas based on the properties of Marvel Comics, starting with this year's The Avengers.

    eFX Announce Avengers Collectibles

    Looks like we'll be getting a few gems here

    THOR HELMET!

    Apparently they'll also be displaying them at WonderCon

    [​IMG]

    The article related to this said that prices for their replicas will range from $49 - $ 1500!!!

    So I'm glad I got Chris' shield!

    Looks good. The only thing I would have hoped for is the leather liner for the Cap mask (it looks incomplete without it)

    I see they have the Cheek details on the Ironman - nice.

    Wow, very cool, I'll be on the look out for these. I knew that eFX has the license to make the Avengers shields (the main reason I could not get a license I think), but I was told their shield would be made from resin, not aluminum... I guess we'll see.

    Edit: keep in mind, that the shields in Avengers are all resin or rubber, so what they are making will be accurate i believe. :) I look forward to seeing them.

    Yeah, if these are anything like the quality in their Vader helmet, which I am sure they will be, I think I'll have to get each of them :)

    I posted it on different boards as well

    I'm so excited for Thors helmet. I think that may be the stand out piece that people will want

    I'm not sure I'm digging the idea of a resin shield. I'm just waiting for that tracking number from you! It's close. I can feel it (I'm right, aren't I!!!?) :lol

    Then of course I'll have the inevitable custom fees. Ugh

    Yep, this weekend she'll finally be done since the new harware is in. :)

    The nice thing about the resin shield, is that they'll be able to capture the proper detail in the front star, and it will be flush with the rest of shield. I think it will look just like you see in the pics that are coming out from the Avengers sets and behind the scenes stuff.

    We are really excited to be the new worldwide licensee for MARVEL prop replicas and collectibles. Our license does not only include the upcoming Avengers movie, it includes some of the previous MARVEL films and the comic book universe!

    Let me give you a little insight into our new line of prop replicas. These fall into our "Legend" series since all of the props and helmet prototypes were made from the ORIGINAL molds from the ORIGINAL prop makers! So, we would like to extend a very special thank you to Studio Art and Technology (Thor Hammer - Avengers version and the Captain America Shield including all of the straps and hardware), Ironhead (Thor and Captain America Helmets) and Legacy (formerly Stan Winston Studios) (Iron Man helmet original molds)

    More to come!

    Oh, BTW, the Captain America helmet will come with cowl, unfortunately, we did not have time to finish it for this picture. It is actually made from a silk screened nylon (not leather) like some of the other details pieces on the costume.

    Forgot to mention . . Don't you think that our Captain America Shield and Helmet will go great with UD Replicas's motorcyle suit? That is how I am going to display mine! I already talked to David about this a while ago! :p

    Now, the legal disclaimer, since I said this. . . the helmet is NOT made for head protection!

    We are using the actual molds that made the screen used helmets. So please note that Robert Downey Jr has a very small head, so it may not fit everyone!

    Thanks!

    And Chris is correct, our first shield will be made in fiberglass. The fiberglass version was the primary prop used in the filming of the Avengers. The aluminum ones were too heavy and they were too easily damaged!

    Thanks!

    You said 'first shield', does this mean can expect battle damaged shields as well? Or even shields from different materials?

    So psyched!

    Bryan as a long time fan, first let me say this is awesome. Now that the company is expanding though, I really hope some money is put into the website and communication between company and customer. With the long delays and lack of updates with just the Star Was line, I fear that will become even more strained with the addition of a giant property like Marvel.

    Bryan, congrats again on the License! The items look fantastic. I look forward to seeing some in person sometime. Thanks for the clarification on the shield materials, it will definitely save weight. I can't wait to see the display with David's suits :) .. I need to get my butt out to more conventions!

    Yep, the rep I spoke mentioned they were planning on making them out of stamped steel. We talked for a bit and I tried to hook them up with the spinning shop down in Miami that I sub some jobs out too, they said they would call, but I never heard from them.

    Re: eFX Announce Avengers Collectibles

    In fact, it's probably best to close this thread as the other has more comments and is getting details from Bryan from eFX, so it's quite useful and there's no point in starting again here

    Do the mods close it?

    Mjolnir looks terrible on that pic but the prototype over SSC looks a 100 times better

    That's one prop I've always liked since the end credits of Iron Man 2, and that was only a small glimpse!

    Definitely getting MR's Thor hammer in the future, it looks better on the retail websites. Among the newly announced pieces, I think the only one I may be interested in is Cap's new helmet, but depends on price.
