Spin-offs is Blog@Newsarama’s weekly wrap on licensing. Today, new DC Keepsake Ornaments, some Conan news and Spider-Man on the green.
Little DC costumes at Hallmark
Decorate your tree this year with Hallmark’s new Keepsake Ornaments representing super-hero closets.
When Clark Kent goes off to bed, he always hangs up his super clothes in just this way. With this clever Hallmark Keepsake Ornament, the guy in your house can have his own set of superhero duds hanging right on the tree (just in case a villain shows up for holiday dinner). Comes with a full-sized Hallmark greeting card, with your personal message. 5″ W. x 3 1/2″ H.
Know someone who’s truly a Wonder Woman? Then this ornament was designed for her. It’s a real fabric replica of the superhero’s cape and trademark star-studded suit, complete with her golden crown, all neatly hung on its own hanger. Comes with a full-sized Hallmark greeting card, with your personal message. 3 1/2″ W. x 4″ H.
The ornaments are shipping in October and will retail for $12.50 USD each. These and other ornaments, including Spider-Man and Batman, can be found in store or online.
Conan News Wrap
Funcom announced the MMORPG Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures will be delayed yet again, this time to March 25, 2008. This is the fourth time the game has been set back.
Meanwhile, NECA issued a press release announcing their massive licensing agreement with Conan Properties International via Paradox Entertainment. The agreement will spawn products based on the current Dark Horse comic series and the Arnie movies.
NECA will be producing a line of collectible action figures, resin busts, resin statues and other consumer products using artwork from both the classic Universal film Conan the Barbarian and from the current Dark Horse comic series. NECA plans to have a full line of products available in 2008, some of which will feature the iconic Arnold Schwarzenegger, the epitome of fantasy heroism, as he appeared in the 1982 film.
