Digital Action Figures and Virtual Play Sets Based on Stasys and Kaze: GhostWarrior Properties from Declaration Pictures Inc.
LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / November 4, 2014 / Dalton Industries Inc., (http://www.daltonindustries.us) (OTC Pink: DALT) (DALT), announced today that it will produce and distribute the world's first line of Digital Action Figures and Virtual Play Sets based on the Declaration Pictures Inc., properties, Stasys: The Series and Kaze: Ghostwarrior.
Dalton Industries Inc., President - Kelly Lee Myers, who is also the creator of Stasys, will be serving as Executive Producer of both productions. Mr. Myers made the announcement in Los Angeles this morning stating the two companies recently announced that they would partner to produce Stasys and Kaze simultaneously with pre-production starting now, in the fourth quarter of 2014. The first episodes of the two highly anticipated series are expected to debut in 2015 and will be produced for Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality devices in addition to being made available in HD, UHD(4K) and stereoscopic formats.
"The concept of merchandising action figures and play sets has a long and successful history over the last four decades. We are essentially adapting this form of merchandising to tie-in to 21st Century technology and distribution platforms. Kaze and Stasys will be the first properties in history where the release of the episodes coincides with the release of the digital toys and these toys will be enjoyed on the same devices that our audiences watch the shows on; yet another first," said Myers, referring to Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality devices coming onto the market from a number of companies.
He continued, "Meta's MetaPro glasses and Epson's Moverio BT-200 will be ideal for the Augmented Reality based products while Samsung's GearVR, Sony's Project Morpheus for the Playstation 4 and the Oculus Rift for PC are our intended targets for Virtual Reality versions. Monetizing the digital assets from both productions in this way gives the company an additional revenue stream that would normally be overlooked by other studios. We feel this has massive potential and could eclipse the revenue pulled in from the sale or licensing of the episodes themselves to conventional viewing platforms such as NetFlix, Hulu or a major broadcast network."
"Kaze and Stasys are being specifically made for viewing in these mediums so it makes sense for us to distribute the Digital Action Figures and Virtual Play Sets in the same manner. We wish to truly engage our customers, our growing fan base by maximizing their use of these hardware products. It is our intention to make our toys collectable as well and in some cases available limited in number. This gives the digital assets value and in this way mirrors as closely as possible a market environment normally reserved for real world toys, which in itself is a multi-billion dollar a year industry," Myers stated.
Each of the main character kits will range from $20 - $50 USD with accessory add-on packs released as the shows progress through their respective story lines. Vehicles, sets, weapons and more will contribute to an expanding toy catalog for each property.
