San Diego, CA – For years now, Masked Republic’s LuchaShop.com has been the official online shopping site where fans could order the company’s logo t-shirts and DVDs along with officially licensed merchandise the company manufactured for lucha libre stars including Konnan, LA PARK and Solar. Now, as the popularity of the AAA luchadors who star on El Rey Network’s “Lucha Underground” series has grown, fan demand for access to their official merchandise has as well. Recently, Masked Republic has bridged the literal gap between luchadors in Mexico and their fans worldwide being able to obtain their t-shirts, masks and other collectibles.
LuchaShop.com currently features nearly a dozen official shirts for AAA/Lucha Underground stars including Pentagon Jr. (6 designs), Fenix (2 designs), Drago (1 design) and El Hijo Del Fantasma (1 design). Additionally, the site carries commercial masks of Fantasma and Fenix. But, the crown jewels of the site’s merchandise offerings are the professional grade lucha masks that come directly from the personal collections of Pentagon, Fenix and El Hijo Del Fantasma.
“Since day one, a key of Masked Republic’s mission to expand lucha libre beyond the borders of Mexico has been to ensure that luchadors were able to benefit financially from sales of t-shirts and masks that bear their resemblance,” Masked Republic CEO Ruben Zamora said. “Now, we have created a system that allows fans across the globe to order official merchandise directly from the luchadors and have the orders fulfilled and shipped from our offices in San Diego and San Francisco. Fans know they are getting official merchandise. The luchadors are being paid directly by Masked Republic for their apparel and masks. It is the ultimate win-win.”
Currently, Masked Republic is taking orders for t-shirts and masks which will be picked up from the Lucha Underground stars in Mexico on August 9th when the company’s representatives attend AAA’s TripleMania event.
In addition to coordinating distribution of merchandise manufactured directly by luchadors, the company continues to sign stars to licensing deals for apparel that is manufactured in the United States and keep in stock for immediate deliver. Recent additions include AAA/Lucha Underground star Brian “Machine” Cage and for the company’s Lucha PopCouture line, TJ Perkins (seen currently on TNA/Impact Wrestling on Destination America and in Evolve on WWNLive.com). The company has also started manufacturing and distributing the most demanded lucha libre apparel of the past five years, official Perros Del Mal logo merchandise, under official license from the Aguayo family. Additional lucha stars who’s officially licensed apparel will be launching with the company soon include Jack Evans, Taya Valkyre, Sexy Star, and Ivelisse.
