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.
Tomenosuke has released a few new details about their KillKat "Too Much Sake" Tomenosuke Exclusive. Fans of artist Andrew Bell will be able to get their hands on this exclusive piece at STGCC 2018 (50 of the 150 pieces will be brought there). On September 12th 2018, sales will begin simultaneously in Tomenosuke Stores for Japan and Tomenosuke International for overseas. A small amount will also be reserved for DCon in November 2018 and Tokyo Comic Con in December 2018.

The Piranha Prop Replica Model Resin Cast Kit is produced under the permission of Chako Vanleeuwen, a film producer of the New World Pictures "Piranha”, by Tomenosuke.
