Tomenosuke has teamed up High Bros. Production to release this prop replica model of the dinosaur - named Fatty - from the 1981 film Caveman (starring Ringo Starr - and where he met his wife Barbara Bach). Similar to the Blade Runner blaster, Shinji and Tomenosuke had trouble trying to track down the license holder. So, due to ambiguous ownership rights, they had to produce Fatty without any reference to the film Caveman. Nonetheless, they have released a limited edition of 12 pieces of th...

Tomenosuke teases Fright Night Vampire Skull

Tomenosuke has dropped this photo of the paint test version of their upcoming prop replica release - the Vampire Skull from "Fright Night" . For those unawares...Fright Night is a cult classic horror film from 1985. It's also one of the few horror films from that decade to be critically appreciated and acclaimed. I love that Tomenosuke is producing these replicas for those of us still in love with classic (ugh...1970's and 80's are now classic) cinema.
