This worldwide agreement will allow Corgi International to do territory specific programs utilizing iconic Beatles imagery on a range of die cast collectibles at different scales.
Corgi International CEO Michael Cookson commented, "Corgi as a company has had a long association with the Beatles having produced the original Yellow Submarine die cast in the 1960’s and it was a priority for the company to re-initiate a program with Apple Corps/Suba Films for an innovative range of product, that people will once again enjoy purchasing. With the 40th Anniversary of Sgt Peppers, it was a perfect time for the deal to have been agreed, and we are truly excited to be partners again.’’
