Mindzeye Studios has announced it has entered into a licensing agreement with Epic Games to produce a full line of collector cold cast bronze statues based on characters from the Gears of War universe. The initial Gears of War product line will be released in 2008, with additional products becoming available following the introductory launch.

“Gears of War is extremely unique in that it offers stunning visuals, compelling characters, and a storyline that captures the imagination. We instantly realized that the options available to us to produce incredibly dynamic products based on that world were basically limitless,” said Pete Jirles, President and CEO of Mindzeye Studios. “We’re thrilled to partner with Epic Games on this project. With their attention to detail and story-driven approach, Epic is setting a new standard for the video game industry. Focusing on a compelling game narrative, as well as utilizing the impressive Unreal Engine 3 for incredible cinematic visuals, it’s obvious that they’re concerned with producing a quality product, which echoes our own philosophy.”

“We're really excited by Mindzeye joining forces with us in the Gears of War universe.” said Dr. Michael Capps, President of Epic Games, Inc. “You can tell by looking at their statues that they're artists, and perfectionists -- they spend the time to get it right. We're psyched to see what they can do with Gears characters and monsters, and we hope Gearheads are just as excited.”
Epic announced earlier this year that a Mac version of Gears of War is currently in the works. Keep an eye on IMG for updates.
