MAN-E-XCLUSIVE// The Disarticulators’ sofubi Oozeball proto revealed in full…

oozeball sofubi proto promo

With NYCC just a couple of weeks away now, our very own Disarticulators have decided to reveal one of the many projects they’ll have on show at the event… the long-awaited sofubi Oozeball! 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 base removed (see pic below)… Due to be produced in soft vinyl by Rampage Toys soon after NYCC, the guys will be offering up an open pre-order at the event, as well as a super-limited batch of hard resin protos. Stay tuned for the full lowdown – including details of the first online release – early next week…

Designed by Gabe and sculpted by the hugely talented Zectron, the 2″ ball – roughly the same scale as the previously released Oozeball – has been inspired by a Manga short story compilation (name forthcoming), blending a macabre, exposed flesh design along with elements from Cure’s Thorn Ball Boogieman to devastating effect. Currently undergoing rubber production courtesy of Tru:Tek, expect to see the first edition at the Rampage Toys x Tru:Tek NYCC booth (#402) next month, with an online release through the Leucotomy store soon after… Stay tuned for the full lowdown on the figure as we get a little closer to the event!

Release details on the figure are still to be confirmed at present, but with a successful test-shot in place, we’re guessing we should only have another month or 2 to wait…
