WETA ANNOUNCES RANGE OF DISTRICT 9 COLLECTIBLES

Weta Collectibles announced that they are very proud and excited to be able to announce a range of limited edition collectibles from District 9, Neill Blomkamp’s acclaimed 2009 movie.

The collectibles are of course created by the same artists and craftspeople who created the original designs, props and creatures in the movie.

Further detailed announcements will follow shortly.

For you folks not familiar with Weta, there are two distinct arms to their company, Weta Workshop and Weta Digital. Below is a blurb from their web site.

Each business has its own website. This site is for fans, friends and artists, as well as clients of Weta Workshop. You can visit Weta Digital’s website here.

Weta Workshop is a five time Oscar winning conceptual design and physical manufacturing facility servicing the world’s entertainment and creative industries”

Well, that’s roughly how we sum up our company to our clients. And it’s correct. That’s what we do.

  • We’ve enjoyed a long and highly creative relationship with filmmaker and Weta co-owner Peter Jackson since the beginning of his career, working on films from Meet The Feebles through to The Lord Of The Rings trilogy (Fellowship Of The Ring, The Two Towers, Return Of The King) and King Kong.

  • The Weta Workshop team designed and crafted the armour, props, weapons and cultures for The Chronicles Of Narnia.

  • We built miniature ships for Master & Commander

  • We’ve built a fully functional Warthog for Microsoft’s Halo3 game promotional films

  • And much more – check out all the movies we’ve worked on.

But Weta is so much more than that…

  • Our artists created Dr Grordbort’s Rayguns. And a whole range of limited edition collectible sculptures, crafted by the very same artists who work on our movies.

  • We make award winning children’s TV shows.

  • We make public art and displays for events, exhibits and concerts

  • If it’s fun, creative and challenging, we’re into it!

And we love to engage with fans and other creative people…

That’s why our website is quite different from other companies in the filmmaking business. It includes a lot of stuff for you. The fan. The one who watches the movies. We’re all fans of something in here, be it movies, gaming, TV shows or beautiful art. So we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
