The firing model prop blaster was made at the firearm specialty studio, ISS (Independent Studio Services) in Hollywood, which combines the real Charter Arms Bulldog and the receivers of the Steyr Mannlicher Rifle into the Tomenosuke blaster. Only three of these blasters were made for the shooting scene in the film.

Billy Ray Valentine showcases the extremes as two Pop! figures, one a successful businessman and the other Special Agent Orange, or Billy Ray Valentine panhandling. Louis Winthorpe III is so successful he’s waving money although Santa Louis looks decidedly bedraggled. In addition, Louise Winthorpe III has definitely seen better days as a Target Pop! exclusive.
