As if the secret batch of “Stealth” Oozeballs revealed earlier in the week weren’t enough, Jon Malmstedt over at Rampage Toys has been hard at work on yet another hand painted run of the Disarticulators‘ debut sofubi – the Oozeball – proudly presenting the “Frankenruge” edition! Produced in the standard OG super-squishy “Ooze-It” green vinyl, the limited batch of 3 figures have been treated to a paint app inspired by Barom-1’s infamous villain “Frankenruge”, coming with a whole host of white, red and blue sprays and hand painted detailing. Created for Rampage Studios’ impromptu group show with Skull Head Butt and Leo Sofvi Bouya this evening (3/27), any remaining “Frankenruge” Oozeballs will – fingers crossed! – be heading to the Rampage Toys store at some point over the weekend…
