...dreamed of becoming the most iconic heroes and characters from the world of imagination like BATMAN™, Captain America™, SUPERMAN™, Luke Skywalker and more. Now, UD Replicas brings those dreams to life with a constantly-expanding line of official movie replica garments inspired by some of the finest filmmakers, videogames and musicians in the world, including Warner Bros., Marvel, Disney, Hasbro, Livenation, Microsoft and Lucasfilm.
The dreamer behind UD Replicas and parent company Universal Designs Ltd. is David Pea, a fashion designer and leather craftsman who creates screen-accurate replica garments based on some of the most enduring heroes (and villains!) in popular culture.
“Since these are screen-accurate replicas, officially licensed by their respective studios, our research and development process is uncompromising. Frequently, we work directly from the source material, engineering our UD Replicas garments from the original suits worn on-screen by such actors as Christian Bale, Olivia Wilde, Ben Affleck and others,” says David.
Formed painstakingly from the finest leathers and materials, David's designs are functional works of art, never to be confused with traditional costumes. With the addition of Kevlar and other CE-approved body armour and protective features, each garment is a fully-functional protective motorcycle suit, bringing a unique style to riders never seen before.
UD Replicas…where craftsmanship meets inspiration and dreams become realities...
UD stands for Universal Designs. That was the name of the company when David founded it back in 2001...and at the time was a costume making company. Once we began with studio licensing in the leather world, David did not want to confuse the public so he started a licensing division called UD Replicas...and yes Universal Designs Ltd is the parent company. David is not only the President...but our fearless leader too. - UDR
Yes. All of our Motorcycle jackets have removable CE Approved Body Armor in the Forearms/Elbows, Shoulders, and Back Spine Protector. Pants have removable CE Approved Body Armor in the Knees/Shins and Side Thigh Protection. Gloves feature 'either' Anti-Skid Kevlar in the Glove Palm or Studded Palms. This depending on glove design however all details are listed in their respective product pages.
It looks Like the most important part in the Description in my Opinion is "however all details are listed in their respective product pages."
The Reason for that is we have now learned from a post by another Facebook poster on UD Replicas Facebook page, there is A difference Between many products as This Cobra Commander Trench coat is listed as a Movie Replica but it has no Armor. That's Right this is not a Motorcycle Jacket, like maybe one would expect like I did. so although I went in to try on Jackets it may turnout that was both useful and not useful as I was trying on "Armored", "More Ridged" Jackets than This Cobra Commander: Movie Replica Leather Trench Coat May turnout to be. So unless things change should you be reading this I hope I have helped you to make sure not to only rely on what you have Heard or may think you have heard about UD Replicas, and if it matters to you that It have the Armor That would be more likely to make this product a Functional Motorcycle Jacket. Make sure to Read the Product Description, and FULL Product Tittle, because although this is listed as a Movie Replica much like the "Batman Begins™ Movie Replica Motorcycle Suit" and other items, and possible future items to come from UD Replicas in the Both their Movie Replica line and their other lines. The biggest difference in my Opinion is what type of Movie Replica is it?
See did you catch it?
The "Batman Begins™ Movie Replica Motorcycle Suit" and the Cobra Commander: Movie Replica Leather Trench Coat are Both Movie Replicas but only one of them has the word Motorcycle.
So when it comes to UD Replicas Movie Replicas line remember to ask yourself what Kind of Movie Replica is it?
- Is it a Motorcycle Jacket/ Suit?
- Is it outerwear?
so When the time comes for you to Buy Your UD Replicas Items make sure if it matters to you to Not only READ the Item Tittle carefully, and to read the Item description as well. Even Items not listed with the word motorcycle in them could still end up with the Armor, an Example of that is their The Dark Knight Rises™ - BANE™ Leather Jacket with Vest although not listed as a Movie Replica or a Motorcycle jacket it does still list in its Item description
- Removable CE Approved Body Armor in forearms/elbow,
- shoulder and back spine protector.
So Yeah I am Bummed that My New jacket does not have the Armor? Of course I am, only since it is what I had heard of UD Replicas, and it is what I had convinced myself was the case.
Am I still Grateful? Of course I am, even with not yet trying on my jacket. I know how lucky I am as if not for the Help of my Husband Michael, My Best Bud Dave, my Great Mate Christian, others, and of course UD Replicas I would not be here doing my best to learn how to get better at this website (sorry if your experiencing my learning curve, and my hiccups, but thanks for hanging in there:) I know this is most likely a once in a lifetime chance, and I am so Grateful to UD Replicas, David, the team at UD Replicas, and let us not forget to thank the ones actually making my jacket, and the other commanders I have seen sharing their excitement in having a Cobra Commander: Movie Replica Leather Trench Coat.
Dave, Christian, and Michael know I have always tried to find connections, in some ways it's not what I set out to do when I first decided to start making Videos, but in someways it was. I was hoping to connect to people that both know me, yet at times don't really know me.
As well as those that don't know me, but now thankfully do know me like Dave, christian, and others I could list that do know of me.
