This may set the record for an Aurora kit being reissued by different companies. Aurora ran the kit, and then it was repopped by Cinemodels. Then it was out via Polar Lights/Cinemodels. Now Moebius/Cine will give it a run.

Cinemodels is only the current owner of the Aurora logo. They are not a partner in this project. We licensed the name from them. As Tom mentioned, we also licensed the Famous Monsters logo for the standard Forgotten Prisoner kit. We wanted to get it as close as possible to the original package.

If all goes smooth, we'll try to follow up with more of the monster kits. Hitting early next year is a short run of the Jekyll in the Aurora box with the box graphics more closely reproduced. Limited run on this, there will be chase kits included as well!

On the Frightening Lightning Prisoner, these are nearly sold out. They didn't go through our regular distributor channels. We have less than 100 left. If they haven't appeared in your local shop, they may not! It seems that mostly the mail order shops got them, even though ordering was open to all retailers. If you can't find one, contact us direct and we can point you in the right direction.
