ARTEFACTS

… Ned Kelly’s life and myth have inspired paintings, novels, films and songs. One cannot understand the Australian spirit without coming to terms, like it or not, with his life and legend.

Sydney Morning Herald 1988

Ned Kelly Inc. is an ever expanding industry encompassing merchandise, collectables, apparel, toys, foodstuffs, beverages, and numerous other commodities, articles, and objects. This section in no way claims to be a complete collection of Kellyana. Instead, we have chosen specific and pertinent [and some irrelevant] items which reflect the story of Ned and his wider folklore.

Bunnykins Ned Kelly

Hand made and hand decorated in England, this limited edition Bunnykins collectable was released in 2006 with 1,000 units worldwide. Designed in Australia, the Ned Kelly imagery was an instant hit. The series sold-out quickly and collectors now demand prices up to ten times above original retail prices.

Ned the Bushranger

Before Funko began their POP! world domination there were 4″ high Nooks. Made from solid PVC, each figurine had an individually numbered ‘Nook tag’. Before the company disappeared you could log in to www.my-nooks.com and record your tag online [like a toy adoption process].

ROM The Space Knight

To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the iconic ROM The Space Knight toy, Hasbro released this special edition Mighty Mugg! Since the release of the original Parker Brothers toy in 1979, ROM The Space Knight has built a devoted following, and now toy fans will be able to purchase the first Mighty Mugg ROM The Space Knight figure, featuring 5.5 inches of 100% recycled awesome!

Originally ROM was a toy co-created by Scott Dankman, Richard C. Levy, and Bryan L. McCoy. To promote the toy, the creators licensed the character to Marvel, who created the series ROM: Spaceknight. While the licensed character and name belong to Hasbro, most of the background and development of the character belongs to Marvel. This convoluted ownership may explain why we haven’t seen ROM in any Marvel live-action movies to-date.

Manufacturer: Hasbro
Range: Mighty Muggs
Height: 5.5″

Johnny Romeo Zeroday Beer

In collaboration with Australian pop artist Johnny Romeo – this Tropical IPA with lactose, tangerine, and guava is a limited do-not-miss release. Up front, the beer feels soft then there is a tangy note from the tangerine. The lactose gives body and sweetness to support the balance and the hints of guava play a key role in the tropical vibe we were going for. There is minimal bitterness from the mosaic hops, but lots of bright aroma and flavour. The mosaic plays so nicely with the citrus and tropical flavours of the fruit.

Ned Kelly Pendant Light

Of all the icons in Australian history, to many none are more dramatic than the helmets of the Kelly gang! The Kelly gang lighting collection is a contemporary series of tubular sculptural lights inspired by the forms of those helmets. The lights are laser cut from extruded aluminium tube, hand prepped and then powder-coated outer finish and an anodised or powder-coated inner finish. The Kelly gang lights emit a soft, warm light through the slotted visor with a more abundant warm glow flowing from the bottom which will reflect the interior gold or other colours, enhancing the contrast against the exterior. Bushrangers, folk heroes or revolutionaries, the exploits of the Kelly gang increasingly attract world attention.

The Bold, The Bad and The Ugly

As Australia’s colonies developed, bushrangers roamed the countryside: they were the scourge of police and troopers who struggled to uphold the law in the rapidly expanding settlements. The bushrangers came from a range of backgrounds: some were anti-establishment heroes to the common people, whilst some were forced into a life of crime. The nefarious Kelly Gang led by Edward ‘Ned’ Kelly are among Australia’s most notorious bushrangers: their distinctive iron armour inspiring an entire Australian folklore. With this Uncirculated Mintmark and Privy Mark Coin Set, the Royal Australian Mint recalls Australia’s bushrangers and their legacy in art, folklore and identity.
