“Dynamic Forces has been awarded a license to produce collectible merchandise based on Valiant Entertainment properties, the company announced. The merchandise categories include resin statues, dioramas, bookends, full-size head reproductions, busts, lithographs, and posters.
The first product to be released under the new agreement will be an X-O Manowar lithograph, featuring the Marko Djurdjevic art from the cover of X-O Manowar #12 in an over-sized 18″ x 24″ format. It will be released in July.
New Valiant Entertainment President of Consumer Products, Promotions, and Ad Sales Russell Brown described his roots with Dynamic Forces. “I worked extensively with Dynamic Forces during my time at Marvel and, true to form, they have a wide array of exciting plans in store for Valiant’s universe of characters,” he said. Brown was EVP of Worldwide Licensing Promotions, and Ad Sales at Marvel Enterprises for five years in the late 90s and early aughts.”

VALIANT and QUARANTINE STUDIO Partner for Deluxe Statue Line
Valiant is proud to announce that it has partnered with Quarantine Studio for an exclusive array of high-quality limited edition statues, realizing the greatest heroes of the Valiant Universe in three dimensions for the first time anywhere!
The first Valiant/Quarantine release, scheduled for 2014, will be the X-O Manowar Deluxe Edition Statue, based upon the art of superstar artist Marko Djurdjevic. Sculpted in polyresin and standing 14 inches high on a 9 inch by 10 inch base, the first-ever sculptural representation of Valiant’s signature hero will recreate Djurdjevic’s iconic cover art to X-O Manowar #12 – a key centerpiece of the “Planet Death” storyline currently being published the X-O Manowar monthly series. The hero then begins a brand new adventure this July in X-O Manowar #15 – the first issue of an all-new story arc by New York Times best-selling author Robert Venditti and fan favorite artist Lee Garbett.
