Across the frozen wastes of the northern most reaches of the globe, through the primeval forests and valleys, lurking in the darkest recesses of man’s forgotten histories, the creatures of nightmare and legend are shambling out of the shadows to reclaim a world that has forgotten the true meaning of fear…
Creatureplica, the toy world’s newest purveyor of original monster creations is full bore into their series one pre-order! As production revs into high gear they’ve released packaged pics of the Himalayan Yeti, North American Sasquatch, Louisiana RuGarou, and HorrorHound, and teased a wave of variants to follow series one throughout 2016.
Creatureplica is an amalgam of creative and professional expertise headed by toy industry veteran sculptor/designer Jean St. Jean, in association with creative/financial collaborators, Jeff Beyers, Craig Deere, and Nick Epley. The project, spotlighting cryptozoological mysteries and folkloric beasts, has been in development for 3 years with a projected ship date of January 2016. The figure line flies in the face of the current trend toward low detail “retro-style” mini figures, offering a highly detailed, realistic vision of iconic creatures with extensive articulation in a range of 7-9 inches tall. The figures will retail at 34.99, available though their website, cretureplica.com. Wholesale pricing is also available upon inquiry. And various websites are running their own pre-order deals on sets and individual figures.
