Ready For The Zombie Apocalypse? Factory Entertainment Unveils A New Soft Weapons Concept Which Will Help You Get Ready

Concord, CA – Factory Entertainment, Inc., the Concord, California-based producer of licensed toys and collectibles, announced today that it will be unveiling a brand new and proprietary concept February 14th through the 17th at New York Toy Fair 2015 (booth #4952) called SWAT™: Soft Weapons and Tactics.

SWAT™ captures the fun of thematically stylized fantasy weapons, but executed in soft, safe for work and play materials, with sounds specifically tailored to each piece and is intended for ages 8+. MSRPs range from $9.99 to $39.99.

Factory Entertainment plans to release a wide range of genre-specific SWAT™ items, the first of which, Zombie SWAT™, will be shown at New York Toy Fair and capitalizes on the global pop-culture phenomenon of zombies. The initial arsenal consists of the following zombie-fighting weapons:

  • Buther Knife
  • Machete
  • Nail-Studded Bat
  • Chainsaw


Each Zombie SWAT™ soft weapon features a series of sounds created specifically for each piece. When activated, the Chainsaw roars to life, while the sound of the undead is heard in the background. The “thwack” of the Nail-Studded Baseball Bat is pleasingly present while warding off the nearing apocalypse and the Machete, “swooshes” cleanly through a broad path of carnage. For close range, the Butcher Knife’s sharp, “snikt” delights as it chops down those who seek to chomp, “BRAAAAAINS!”

“One of our goals is to anticipate demand,” said Barry Eldridge, Creative Director of Factory Entertainment. “We’ve all read headlines of various diseases running rampant and we believe that it’s only a matter of time until the zombie outbreak hits!” Eldridge continued, “With our Zombie SWAT™ soft weapons, training to defend yourself from all things, ‘Z’ has never been more easy and fun! Wait, do you hear that? Something’s coming… AHHHHHH!”

Mr. Eldridge was unavailable for further comment.

For more information, be sure to stop by Factory Entertainment’s booth at New York Toy Fair, #4952. The invitation is open to anyone brave enough to take up the call to soft-arms.

Concord, CA – Factory Entertainment, Inc., the Concord, California-based producer of licensed toys and collectibles, announced today that it has entered into a multi-year licensing agreement with Sony Pictures Television to produce a wide range of products from the STARZ Original Series Outlander.

The series – which spans the genres of romance, science fiction, history, and adventure in one epic tale - is adapted from Diana Gabaldon’s New York Times bestselling Outlander book series. Outlander follows the story of Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945 who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743 and thrown by circumstances beyond her control into the arms of Jamie Fraser, a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior.

With the first eight episodes having already garnered critical and popular acclaim, Outlander is due to return to Starz for the second half of its first season on April 4, 2015. A second season is already in pre-production.

Factory Entertainment will be offering a wide variety of Outlander products across several categories including: Pillows, Towels, Stationery, Lithographs, Drink Bottles, Jewelry Replicas and Costume Accessory Replicas.

These and a number of other products are currently in development with a planned release starting in the summer of 2015. Initial prototypes will be unveiled February 14th through the 17th, 2015 at New York Toy Fair in the Factory Entertainment Booth (#4952).

“We’re huge fans of the series and a line of licensed merchandise is the perfect opportunity for us to create quality products that appeal to every type of Outlander enthusiast, whether Highlanders or Sassenachs” said Jordan Schwartz, President and CEO of Factory Entertainment. "There’s something captivating about a love story that spans centuries,” Schwartz continued, “it’s a privilege for us to be able to honor this wonderful saga.”

The television series adaptation for Outlander was developed by executive producer and Peabody Award Winner Ronald D. Moore (2005, “Battlestar Galactica”), best known for his contributions to the Star Trek franchise. Tall Ship Productions, Story Mining & Supply Company, and Left Bank Pictures produce outlander in association with Sony Pictures Television.

The licensing agreement was brokered by Knockout Licensing, as the agency appointed by Sony Pictures Television for Outlander: The Series.
