A limited-edition set of replica props from The Goonies, the 1985 Richard Donner classic, is being produced by Paragon FX Group! The artists at Paragon worked what Warner Brothers to use only the most screen accurate references and surviving original props to make sure that you get top-quality replicas as a fan of the film.
Paragon’s Goonies box set will include One-Eyed Willy’s map, the Copper Bones Key, and the Doubloon. Each replica is fully licensed and is limited to only 1,500 pieces. The estimated release date is Spring of this year, and the box will be priced at $199.99.
Numerous versions [of The Copper Bones Key] are purported to be from production have surfaced over the years. In the end, we were greatly inspired by a surviving key that remains with a prominent actor from the film. The decision was then made to cast this piece in metal and finish with a proper patina, befitting of a relic of its age and origin.
The Spanish Doubloon is also cast in metal and was sized from an original prop. As with the key, the proper patina ensures this piece becomes a cherished part of your collection.
Last year Factory Entertainment introduced a metal replica of the Copper Bones key, which sounds based on the same original prop Paragon FX Group is using. FE was selling the replica for $99. That makes the Paragon set above well worth the $199.99 asking price since you get three props.
After extensive research, Amblin provided Paragon FX Group with the reference for Willy’s map. A surviving map that was given away as a ‘wrap gift’ at the film’s completion serves as the base for this replica. As with the original, additional text and misc. indicia was added to complete the replica which is offered here on quality parchment-like paper.
