MAN-E-XCLUSIVE// The Disarticulators’ OG “Ooze-It Green” sofubi Oozeball preorder…

Oozeball Preorder Promo

Debuting at the Rampage Toys x Tru:Tek NYCC booth in prototype form a couple of weeks back, The Disarticulators are proud to reveal that their sofubi Oozeball will finally be available to preorder this week as part of our HUGE post-NYCC sale! A follow-up to last years hugely popular keshi-ball release, the DA’s Tru:Tek has completely redesigned the figure from the ground up for the new medium, opting for a more organic, Ooze-It like face, paper clay-style textures and the pièce de résistance… a hidden face inspired by Georges Méliès iconic 1902 silent movie, Le Voyage dans la Lune! Beautifully sculpted by none other than Zectron, the 2-part design has been upscaled from the original 2″ diameter to little over 3″- making it both more in-keeping with the classic Madball scale, and, more interestingly, compatible with a wide variety of mid-sized kaiju with the capped base removed… Currently undergoing wax prototyping over in Japan, the figure is set to be produced in a super-squishy soft vinyl mirroring the original Ooze-It doll, with this first “OG” release coming in an unpainted, pantone perfect deep green (artist interpretation subject to change). Up for preorder in the Man-E-Toys store for a month starting this Friday, October 24th at 9pm GMT until Monday, November 24th, the OG sofubi Oozeball has been priced at just $50 shipped worldwide. ETA for the figure has been set for late January/early February 2015…

Note: This will be your one and only chance at bagging the figure through preorder, all future runs will be super-limited exclusives so be sure to snag one whilst they’re readily available!

MAN-E-NEWS// The “Despair” rubber mini figure from Adam Quesnell and Stand Up! Records…

unnamed-96

“Despair is a demon from the 10th Circle of Hell; the level where people who make bad cinematic adaptations of classic toy properties are flayed for eternity. Not your average demon, Despair suffers from severe anxiety disorder and crippling depression. Satan himself even banished Despair from Hell for being a major bummer…

Cast out upon the earth in a fiery geyser of lava and tears, Despair landed in the parking lot of a comedy club that was hosting a weekly open mic night.  Despair put his name on the sign-up sheet, got on stage, and told his story. Since then, he has been punishing himself, night after night, on comedy stages of varying quality throughout the Midwest. He dances and lashes himself for audiences with hopes of selling t-shirts and CDs to drunk people who will not wear or listen to them.”

Originally teased a few weeks back, we can now bring you full release details of the debut figure from comedian and avid toy collector Adam Quesnell… Behold, DESPAIR! Created to celebrate the recent release of his album “Can We Afford This Much Despair?” on Stand Up! Records, Adam has teamed up with illustrator Terence Brown II, October Toys, and our very own Tru:Tek of the Disart Toylabs to bring you the 3″ rubber toy of your saddest nightmares… Standing at around 3″ of 100% UV resistant rubber, the super squishy figure was designed by Terrance and sculpted by the OT team, coming cast in a multitude of colors and finishes by Tru:Tek, including; Marbled Orange/Blue (ltd 20), Stealth (ltd 10), GiD (ltd 10), Neon Green (ltd 20), Neon Purple, (ltd 20), Neon Orange (ltd 20), Hot Pink (ltd 20), Flesh (ltd 20), Red (ltd 15) and Blue (ltd 20). Touching down in the newly opened FAQ Comedy store on Halloween night (10/31) at 6.66pm CDT, Despair will be up for grabs “open bag” style, coming packed with a download code for the album at just $25 each plus shipping… But that’s not all! On top of the many, many different colorways on offer from day one, Adam has also teamed up with Stand Up! to provide the label with their own exclusive releases. First up we’re promised a red/black marble with a super-limited clear blue to follow shortly after- expect more details on both of those soon!
