Tomenosuke has announced the 3DRetro Exclusive "MIMI The Cannibal Girl" Candy Pink Edition. It will be the first coloring version, using spray mask, in the MIMI The Cannibal Girl series. All we are getting now, information-wise, is the above teaser image. But this one was designed for 3DRetro and will be available from them at a later date.
Tomenosuke will be releasing their latest prop replica - the Vampire Skull from the 1985 horror classic Fright Night (by Steve Johnson). The pre-order starts today - October 24th 2018 - at 11:59PM JST (Japan) or 10:59AM ET. Measuring in at 11.8 inches long, and weighing 4.85 lbs, each Vampire Skull includes a certificate of authenticity signed by FX man Steve Johnson.
The Skeleton White Edition is limited to a run of 30 pieces. And if that version sells out, Tomenosuke is planning on producing a Burnt Black Edition (also of 30 pieces).
Tomenosuke has announced that the Rick Deckard's Gun - from Blade Runner 2049 - the Harrison Ford Signature Edition will be launched today - October 16th 2018 - at 11:00PM ET. Limited to 75 pieces, the customized Tomenosuke blasters for the "Harrison Ford Signature Edition" will are slated to be reproductions of the Deckard Blaster used for the firing prop model in the movie "Blade Runner 2049". 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.
These have bee custom made with the help of original Tomenosuke blaster gunsmith, Nobutaka Toku, and a custom gun craftsman, Toshihiko Sato. The brass plaque, each autographed by Harrison Ford, is screwed inside of a commemorative wooden case handmade by Hida Takayama's wood craft workshop, which contains a special custom blaster and wooden blaster stand together.
You'll be able to pick these up at the Hollywood Collector's Gallery Web Store.
Tomenosuke will be releasing their MIMI The Cannibal Girl - Toxic Green Edition on Friday October 12th 2018 at 10:59AM ET. Designed by artist Utomaru, and based on the classic horror film Cannibal Holocaust, the spear in this Toxic Green Edition glows in the dark. Since MIMI is translucent, you can vie the glowing stick through the sofubi vinyl.
The spear measures about 11.5 inches tall, while the vinyl MIMI is about 7.5 inches in height. This color variant is limited to a release of 30 pieces. It will run 13,500 JPY (about $120.00).
Tomenosuke has revealed the MIMI The Cannibal Girl Toxic Green Edition by Utomaru. This Toxic Green Edition will features a clear green body where you can see the spear piercing the heart of MIMI's body. Similar to the previous two editions, only 30 pieces will be made for sale. The release date will be announced soon.

The Crazy Purple Edition, by utomaru, features hand-sprayed purple on the head and lower half of the green cast body. Also, there's a thin layer of silver metallic sprayed on top of that.
As with the previous edition, the run will be limited to 30 pieces. Each one includes a metal display stand, and comes inside a window box printed with the artist's artwork. If you're outside of Japan, you'll need to head to Tomenosuke's International Store.
Tomenosuke has revealed the newest colorway of their MIMI The Cannibal Girl. The MIMI The Cannibal Girl Crazy Purple Edition by Utomaru will be the second version of the figure to be released. While a few pieces were available at STGCC 2018, this past weekend, details of the general sale will be announced in the near future.
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.
