marble screwball 3

As promised in our unveiling of The Disarticulator “Marble Madness” Lucky Bags earlier in the week, we can now reveal yet another round of figures that’ll be dropping in the Man-E-Toys store next Wednesday, the one-off SKC “Strange Kid” Screwballs! Based on an illustration for Strange Kids Club’s ongoing Circle Jerks sticker line, the stunning gross-out sculpt was originally undertaken by artist Jose David Cifuentes Ulloa as a fan project, quickly sparking the interest of SKC editor, Rondall Scott III, and ultimately leading to a full scale toy release. 3D printed, prototyped and produced courtesy of Tru:Tek over at Disart ToyLabs, the 3″ x 2″ rubber figure has been cast in a variety of 2, 3 and 4 color marble mixes this time around. Limited to just 10 figures priced at $35 each plus shipping, the one-off marbled Screwballs will be joining the Lucky Bags – plus a few other soon to be revealed goodies – in the Man-E-Toys store next Wednesday, January 28th at 9pm London time

With Wonderfestival Winter ’15 coming up in just a couple of weeks time, the guys over at Zoomoth have revealed the first 1 day license they’ve secured for the event, once again taking on Konami’s classic run-and-gun platformer Contra! Focussing on one of the game’s main protagonists Bill Rizer – a follow-up to the previously released Lance Bean – the sub machine gun totting commando has been perfectly realised in Zoomoth’s oversized keshi-scale, coming in at a super-detailed 2.5″ tall. Due to be produced in the now standard palette of flesh, red, green and blue, the rubber minis will be up for grabs at the Zoomoth Wonderfestival booth for around 3,000yen ($30) each- time to get a reliable toy mule sorted, or face those steep aftermarket prices!

The Necrolossus backstory-

“Man’s reliance on nuclear power, ultimately, was the very dependency that would destroy everything. Humanity was notorious for it’s avarice. Every enterprise known to man employed penny-shaving tactics in business, and construction was certainly no stranger to that principle. When a construction company won a bid for a Pacific shoreline reactor, the cost-cutting practices went in effect immediately, affecting everything from materials to staffing. The job was finished before deadline and far under budget, resulting in promotions for those in charge of the project, and a hefty profit for those financially invested in it. Things were good… For a while… The cheap materials and rushed craftsmanship didn’t hold up for long, as five years later, the reactor was put to the test during a meltdown… And the reactor failed, miserably. What came next was expected, and unstoppable…

Death. On a grand scale. Radiation touched everything within a 50 mile radius, polluted the waters, and poisoned the air. The irradiated and necrotic flesh of not only the humans that died in the area, but every living thing in the area, gained a hive-like sentience and began to reconstitute itself. The aggregate monster took pieces of destroyed buildings, automobiles, trains, and whatever else it needed to create a corporeal form. The moment it learned to stand, the colossus made out of radioactive death emptied it’s lungs and nuclear effluvia filled the skies. Cable news media named it “The Necrolossus”, and he stomped towards civilization looking to feast…”
