Factory Entertainment, a manufacturer of entertainment collectibles, has announced the latest addition of its range of pop-culture offerings: a studio scale model of The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine.
More than 200 artists worked to create the style of 1968’s “The Beatles: Yellow Submarine” animated movie. No physical models of the Yellow Submarine were ever created for the production.
“We’ve been lucky enough to create several versions of the Yellow Submarine over the years,” says Barry Eldridge, creative director, Factory Entertainment.” This project is intended to be the ultimate homage and for me, a culmination of a journey that started decades ago, as a young child playing with a small diecast toy of this iconic undersea vessel.”
Officially licensed and approved by Apple Corps, each studio scale model is 27 inches long. The main body is crafted from fiberglass and polyresin; plastic and diecast metal are used for the fittings. The conning tower section is removable, revealing a detailed interior inspired both by real-world naval architecture and the submarine interior scenes seen in the film. Each studio Yellow Submarine comes with a limited-edition numbered plaque, display cradle and certificate of authenticity.
This project will not proceed until at least 100 orders are received by the end of the presale period, which ends Feb. 29. A maximum of 250 models will be built. Models are expected to ship in fall/winter 2024.
When 125 preorders are received, Factory Entertainment will include, at no extra charge, a “Sea of Holes”-inspired light-up display base with every model. This internally illuminated base features more than 150 color patterns and speed options, all operated via remote control.
