Weta Workshop Collectibles will soon be more accessible to a bigger audience of fans and collectors around the world.
Alliance Entertainment inked a new deal with Weta Workshop for the exclusive wholesale B2B distribution rights to its growing line of film-inspired licensed collectibles, including figures, prop replicas, and more. New Zealand-based Weta Workshop was founded in 1987 by Richard Taylor and Tania Rodger as a motion picture effects operation that has worked on hundreds of projects ranging from Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Xena: Warrior Princess to Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films, Thor: Ragnarock, Power Rangers, and more.
“Collectors love Weta Workshop’s film work, and the same artistry we bring to film is in our collectibles,” says Kelly Tyson, acting head of consumer products, Weta Workshop. “From-limited edition made-to-scale figures and prop replicas from Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit trilogies to mini and micro vinyl collectibles from The Dark Crystal, District 9, Ghostbusters, and Middle-Earth, we pride ourselves on the quality of our products.”
Under the new agreement, Alliance Entertainment begins shipping Weta Workshop Collectibles to retailers across North America, Central America, South America, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia, The Middle East, and African territories this week.
“Weta Workshop brings a passion and creativity to their products that have made them a favorite of collectible fans worldwide and Alliance Entertainment intends to give more customers than ever before access to Weta’s magical world,” says Tony Moyers, vice president of consumer products, Alliance Entertainment.
