    Aug 7, 2017, 4:52 AM - Tomenosuke get worldwide Blaster rights #1

    Tomenosuke have announced they have been granted a worldwide licence for the 2049 Deckard blaster, possibly just the high-end authentic version from what I read in their blog post below. This looks like good news for continued production of the good version in the future without rights issues rearing their ugly head. They also make reference to an October release so looks like another batch to queue up for...

    Interesting. I wonder if it will be simply be the 2049 with different box design making it look more official.

    Given the fact that they just spent 10's of thousand of dollars on aquiring the licensing rights, I am inclined to believe they need to recoup some of that money. So they will probably keep costs close to the same if not a little more.

    SO does this mean more US availability? Possibly not restricted by Japanese gun laws anymore with the metal barrel?

    This.

    I am personally Tomen'd out. Having bought two at no small cost of course as we know, the second one advertised as the final word only for them to continue production with minor imperceptible tweaks with more iterations. That pissed me off.
    I'm looking for a game changer at this point.

    They can keep making their $1K+ replicas. Just come out with a cheaper budget line (of toys?) for the rest of us who don't want to spend that much on their high end version..

    The way I read it their licence is just for high-end screen accurate replicas. I don't think Tomenosuke will be doing cheaper 'toy' versions like Rubies do with Star Wars. Someone else will have to fill that niche like Takagi are with their PKD water blasters..

    The metal kits (unassembled) were $550 US shipped for the 2049 version last go around. I think like 575 shipped to Europe. So that's like 400 pounds sterling ?

    So does this mean we will more than likely see another run of blasters from them? If so, how long do you think before we see it? I missed the run this last go around, so I'm really hoping for another run.

    I think the going opinion is they will continue to find reasons to do runs as long as there is demand.

    Glad to hear it! Do you know how long they usually take between runs?

    With the movie coming out. I would think they would hop on the band wagon and produce a move series gun. and ride that wave till the end. but there selling techniques escape my primitive thinking....


    Small edit. I guess the 2049 was the move version....

    So I have a chance to get a Tomenosuke Pro Retail version for $1,200 (the one with the green and brown art box with foam inside). From my understanding it is the one that was released right before the newest 2049 version? Is this a "good" deal or should I take my chances and wait for a new release? Still in very early stages of researching here, and am a bit overwhelmed. There are so many versions, it's tough to tell what is most accurate, etc.

    If this is going to be a newer version than the current 2049, I am likely going to buy it out of compulsion since I already bought the Hollywood Collectibles Pro and only have two payments left to go on the Hollywood Collectibles Tomenosuke 2049 model.

    The Pro and the 2049 blasters are very similar in finish and appearance. Just the box packaging different. Wonder if the next Tomenosuke will be different to the past recent releases. The packaging will most likely be updated and different.
