Just saw this "out there"...
...and thought a few of you might like it:thumbsup:

Quote from Frank:

How about a full glow Frightening Lightning Forgotten Prisoner? Shot in the original Aurora tooling here in the US. Aurora logo as licensed to us by Cinemodels, paperwrap box like the originals. Limited to 720 copies, available direct through our club store, or from many of the webshops selling our kits. You may not find it locally, as this is such a short run item it won't go through our normal distribution channels.


There has never been an all glow FP in a Styrene kit...
....until now!

Sounds cool. But "limited edition" means I'll probably not be lucky enough to get one. Just to be clear, this item is in addition to the "unlimited edition" Prisoner kit, right?
720 is a lot of kits!, Should be no problem in getting one...and yeah the regular one will be plentiful! I have no idea how long Cinemodels has the Aurora logo licence for?

Glow, shmo, long as I get a kit in any form of one of my favorite childhood memories! I LOVED that kit. I was sooo into the monster kits when they first came out. Remember The Witch in black plastic? If you do, then you're dateing yourself. And nooo, I don't mean driving yourself to the driven in!

Can I play with it when you get it built? PLEASE?

I can tell you exactly where I played with it outside. One of the fondest memories I have is of the Witch and Forgten Prisoner.

Remember the creepy board game you played in the dark? Can't remember the name but the parts glowed. Loved it. That was my malevolent years!

The Glow prisoner and regular version will up for preorder today at www.Megahobby.com
Keeping my eye on your site :thumbsup:
When it's up...I'm in!
(ordered 2!)

Here are some cool facts about the Frightening Lightning series...
The 'frightening Lightning' kits only came out for 1 year, 1969...and just 6 kits were called 'frightening Lightning'...Frankenstein,Wolfman, Phantom, Mummy, Dracula,and the Forgotten Prisoner...
After that (in the 70's) they were packaged in the Square boxes with the round (starburst) Glows in the Dark logo...where King Kong, Godzilla,Witch,Hunchback, Creature and Dr.Jekyll/Mr.Hyde were added to the Glow series.
The only kit never done in Glow ,of the Original 13 by Aurora, was the Bride of Frankenstein.

I remember the witch the most of all the original Auroras. I've told this story before but myself and two friends bought it soon after it came out. (I guess I am dating myself!!!) Then we all got together at one of their houses and sharing paints built our models. That is a particularly fond memory. I have a Forgotten Prisoner which I built a couple of years ago. I believe I picked it up off a dusty shelf at a hobby shop in Tampa about 4-5 years ago. That was actually the first I knew of it but when I saw it I knew I had to have it. A really great kit with such a great theme. As for this glow kit, I'm not really into glow kits at all but this one does seem like a very good one to release a limited glow production of.

A wish come true answered years later by Polar Lights. Paired with Gary Makatura's terrific what-if box, the glow BoF completed the line.

I can't wait! How long does Cinemodels have the license for the Aurora logo?
Forever.
Unlike copyright, trademarks don't have a time limit.

Copied from Wikipedia
"Unlike other forms of intellectual property (e.g., patents and copyrights) a registered trademark can, theoretically, last forever. So long as a trademark's use is continuous a trademark holder may keep the mark registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office by filing Section 8 Affidavit(s) of Continuous Use as well as Section 9 Applications for renewal, as required."

So, as long as a company keeps the paperwork filed on time, they can keep a trademark forever.
