Dynamite Entertainment has announced a creative partnership with the merchandise development company, The Brewing Factory. New three-dimensional merchandise will be created including collectible statues and toys. The first series of creations that will be coming out of this new partnership is Women of Dynamite which features some of Dynamite Entertainment’s female comic book characters. The first statue will be Vampirella.
The Brewing Factory is run by Georg Brewer, an award-winning creative and production expert as well as former Vice President of Design & Production Development at DC Comics. He founded the Brewing Factory back in 2011. The company has a wide range of creative, design, franchise development and brand management consulting services for products and brands. According to Brewer, “I’ve been really fortunate to work on some great projects these last few years, but my first love will always be comics… Working with Nick and Joe at Dynamite, and their talented comics creators, has been a blast! It’s certainly been a fantastic way for me to get back to where it all started, and along with sculptor Jason Smith, we are creating an amazing line of statues.”
The CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment, Nick Barrucci, goes into more details about the Women of Dynamite statues: “We are extremely fortunate to work with someone of Georg’s knowledge, skill, experience, and sterling reputation… His passion and expertise in the development and manufacturing of cool fan collectibles is second to none, and our being able to work with Georg is going to help bring fans additional great product lines featuring Dynamite’s extensive library of characters. The debut product line resulting from our creative partnership will be Women of Dynamite statues inspired by J. Scott Campbell artwork, and from there, we will continue to delve into our expansive library of intellectual properties.”
The statue of Vampirella will be released in June 2015. What statues can you see being made in the Women of Dynamite line? I think we can expect to see the likes of Chastity, Purgatori, and Red Sonja in all their 3-D glory in the future! What line do you think Dynamite should do next?
