Factory Entertainment has completed a deal to take over control of the Master Replicas Brand and IP from previous owner Hong Kong-based Corgi International. In addition to the brand and IP, it will also control certain designs and tools used for products previously produced by Corgi under the Master Replicas brand name.

Factory Entertainment, a new collectibles entity formed by Darren Epstein, founder of Cards Inc. will attempt to grow the Master Replicas brand with authentic, relevant prop collectibles with strong secondary market appeal.

Epstein commented: "The brand continues to resonate as the market leader in its field and we believe that a new team of people can reboot the brand with a fresh approach and new licenses as a part of the Factory Entertainment family. We intend to announce new licenses for the Master Replicas brand as well as certain others that the company will release under the Factory Entertainment brand name. Our goal is to bring collectible product to market with a broad appeal across a broad price range."
