Neat! A new Creature board game sounds like a really cool idea!

We finally secured the licensing from Universal, that was the first hurdle. Seems like it's a bunch of soccer moms over there doing licensing and even though I was handing them money up front they just didn't want to license Universal Monsters. They kept telling me that the monsters were not great money makers.

Well after a lot of going back and forth we licensed a lot more than the board game so we don't have to go back to them for a while. As per the license we have to get one piece out within six months, so the original board game will be first since it's ready to go. I'd say mid summer release.

What kind of price range might we be looking at?

Interesting business strategy.  Tell the people handing you money not to.

Sigh.

I have a pathological hatred of soccer moms. They've been the bane of society and everything I hold dear for at least the last 25 years.

What size edition is this going to be? Will we find these in stores such as TRU?

Will it be made by machines (like the original), or by hand, like repro toy boxes?

All machine made by a current game producer. We are doing a limited run and they should retail around $40-$50 for the repro. They will be available through Diamond and comic retailers and direct through our website. I'll make this promise, I will offer free shipping in the USA to any UMA board members and will offer it here first.

We got around some of the marking issues with Universal by placing their modern logos on the plastic wrap. So the only thing visible will be a legal line on the outside lid where the original legal line was located. We did however put a TELL on every piece in the game which will be revealed at some point. i didn't want anyone putting repro parts in an old box and claiming it was all real. It will be very subtle and unless you had the two side by side you'd never know.

The repro looks great from what i've seen so far.

Excellent! I had assumed this project was long dead. I'll pick one up as soon as they're ready, and it might be something I can feature on our newly Rondo nominated website!

Put me down for one as well. Another Creature item added to the collection is always a good thing.
