Booth #8808

10 years in business 
10 years exhibiting at Transworld

Transworld is almost here. I am excited because we really developed some products that I think will knock your socks off.

However, You will just have to come by our Booth # 8808 at Transworld to see everything. But don't worry. You won't miss us. Just look for the Giant Blood Splat in the sky.

And here is a run down of what you will find, and all items we bring to the show we are selling off the floor. All sold items will be marked "Sold" and we have already sold many of them.

We have added 6 new My Pet Zombies to the product line and we also have the ability to costume these Zombies any way you wish. So you need a Cowboy, Pirate, Butcher, Doctor, Chef, Red Neck, Inmate etc... Anything you want we can do.

You will see and hear the Scream Cube. Our insanely loud Portable actor worn or costume mounted multi track MP3 player system. The only thing I worry about is the Convention telling us to not activate it. It is over 90 decibels and might bother some of our neighbors.

I am very excited to announce a new product that I have wanted to do for 5 years. The Bunrakboo Puppet Illusions. This allows us to take any one of our My Pet Zombies and turn them into Life size puppets. Used in the dark with the Custom made Black velvet suit. You will completely freak out your patrons. Because they can tell it is a prop and not a person. They will never suspect it is alive. And when you combine this with the impact with the Scream Cube you will have some wetters guaranteed.

Lets not forget about the Weapons of Mass Destruction. This is a full line of latex and foam Bone handled hand hammered Hand held Actor Weapons. Say that three times fast, and they are like nothing else on the market.

And of Course we have several costumes we have developed

First of is the Scare "O" Jack. This is a 11' Scarecrow with a Jackolantern Head that turns left and right and has built in lighted eyes. It is perfect in a corn maze or any outdoor event. And it is huge.

Next is the Cathulu. It is 9' tall with a skull and moving tentacles. It should be interested to see how people react to this piece.

Lastly is the Tree Beast. This is a nod to our history. We started in this business building Parade puppets, and this is built the same way. It stands 13' tall and will make a huge impression coming out of the woods. And we have developed Scream Cube sounds exclusively for this system.

You have already heard about our revision of Art for our website and Sounds of Gore CD library. We will have our entire library available for sale at the show along with many promotional items from pens, keychains, Gore Galore t-shirts, and Gore Galore Gas attendant shirts.

Every buyer over $500 will receive a Free T-shirt, or Gas attendant shirt, keychain and pen. 
Plus all who come by our booth will Receive a Catalog with DVD for your viewing pleasure.

So, come by our Booth (#8808) and Getcha Some Gore!

In the Dark Zone

3 years in business 
2 years exhibiting at Transworld

Transworld - known by several other names - is the largest Haunt show in the country. This year it is in Las Vegas from March 15-19. We'll be there in the Dark Zone and also in Smoothons booth.

SkullTroniX now consists of a team of very talented and dedicated haunters from a variety of disciplines. We have Chuck Sommerville doing electronic and LED circuit design. Mike Fox does all the great voices, sound effects, music and animation. Kathryn Jewell is running production. Bryan Davis is handling design and production of the MoCap and Exorcist product lines. I, Jerry handle new product design, sales and marketing. Bryan Patterson is here on a temporary basis doing mold design and after that he will be handling production of the new Skeletron product.

It has long been our desire in our own haunt to have a totally integrated control system that would handle all lights, video, animatronics, sounds and props. We have achieved that goal and we call it "Intergated Haunt Control". With a single PC running VSA and our Exorcist system you can control up to 8 rooms in a haunt. The system has a short learning curve and the software is very easy to setup and use. No programming language to learn. Everything is controlled with simple pull-down menus. Come stop by the booth and we'll be happy to show you how it works.

So what's new for Transworld?

GhostBust - a 3D bust projection system. Includes palm size projector, bust and custom animation and voice by Mike Fox. Similar to the busts in Haunted Mansion..

SkeleTron - animated free standing 5'6" skeleton to mount our SkullTroniX on. The mechanics are hidden from view. You can walk around it while it operates and not see any wires or mechanisms. Arms move 180 in 2 directions, elbows bend 90, wrists turn 180, torso turns 180. We're hoping you will think this is the hottest product at the show! If only it could walk!

Exorcist - 8 room input system for haunts. When used with VSA it allows control of video, lights, props, and animatronics all from one PC.

MoCap - Live motion control of the SkullTroniX and other servo operated props. Let an actor control your SkullTroniX and interact with the crowd live! Mocap includes Data Capture for saving sound and animations to VSA files for later playback. It also works with other servo driven props.

Sequencer - multiple VSA routine software controller.

Board of Chuckee - 16 channel DMX fully software programmable servo and LED controller. Comes complete with cables, power supply, LED RGB lights and configuration program. This is THE most advanced servo controller on the market. The fact that it is also DMX compatible means it can be up to 1000' from the controller or even run wireless with appropriate transceiver/receiver..

Of course we'll also have the award winning SkullTroniX, Torture Cages, DMX Lighting and more!

We'll have daily product awards (see your coupon book).

And finally, if you have a Rev3 SkullTroniX and wish to upgrade to the DMX version, we are offering the upgrade for $300. If you don't have the DMX light kit then you will also need the $60 DMX adaptor for your PC.

Best regards to all - hope to see you all at Transworld!

As always - you can call me on my cell at 916 600-2295 to ask questions, complain or share jokes anytime!
