Jon Malmstedt over at Rampage Toys has revealed that he’ll be exhibiting at Mandarake‘s Siryosei Expo in Nakano, Tokyo, this Sunday, bringing along a whole host of one-off customs and painted runs… including this rather awesome “Snack Pack” sofubi mini set!

Packed in an authentic “snack foods” box with a header designed by Walter P, each set comes with an all-new holographic sticker created by Bikkuriman enthusiast Kanayama-san. Edition size is still to be confirmed at present, but we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that at least a couple sets remain for online sales early next week…

Due to make their debut via open preorder at Design Fiesta in just a couple of weeks time, expect a full, painted reveal of the pair very soon…


MAN-E-NEWS// The Disarticulators’ “Oozeball” sofubi at ToyCon UK ’15…

final tcon oozeball promo

With ToyCon UK ’15 open it’s doors tomorrow morning (4/25), we thought it was about time to give you guys a little recap on the various Oozeball sofubi our editor-in-chief Tru:Tek will have up for grabs at the event! Guesting at the Toy Shack booth between 11.30am – 1pm, here’s a quick rundown of what you can expect from the Disarticulator

Rampage Toys one-off customs// The Disarticulators have joined forces with Rampage Toys‘ Jon Malmstedt for a trifecta of one-off customs! Produced in a non-squishy flesh-toned soft vinyl this time around – sadly sans squeaker – the Tru:Tek-designed, Zectron-sculpted balls have been treated to layers of unique sprays, rubs and brushwork. Rather aptly titled (from left to right) “Red Planet”, “Funfetti Ooze” and “Golden Sludge”, the trio will set you back just £65 a piece.

ToyCon UK exclusive “Predatooze”// Produced in a squishy clear matt soft vinyl this time around, the vintage-style “squeaky toy” has been filled to the brim with custom tie-dyed pom poms to resemble the infamous thermal imaging effect from cult 80’s flick, Predator. Limited to an edition of just 8 – including a “Deep Heat” chase – alongside just 2 variants in a “Stealth” colorway (without pom poms), the “Predatooze” Oozeballs come packed with a deluxe double sided header for £35 and £32.50 respectively.

Non-squishy “GID” and “Flesh”// Joining both Predatooze and the Rampage one-offs, Tru:Tek will also be bringing along a super-limited batch of Oozeballs in both GID and flesh-toned non-squishy vinyl. Capped at just 2 of each and never to be repeated in this format (i.e. unpainted!), these come packed with custom header cards for just £30 each.

Any leftovers will be making their way to the Man-E-Toys store on Sunday, April 26th at 9pm London time!

Due to be produced by Rampage Toys‘ Jon Malmstedt (TBC) – the guy responsible for Justin’s first sofubi release, the Manotaur – be sure to keep a close eye on the Imps and Monsters Instagram feed here for more info on the project soon…

MAN-E-NEWS// The “Vintage OG” Oozeball sofubi painted run from The Disarticulators…



Whilst it was great to see The Disarticulators’ Oozeball sofubi receive a limited painted run at Wonderfestival Winter 2015 a few weeks back, we know that a few of you guys were a bit disappointed that the release was limited to Japan only- well fear not, as we’re proud to reveal that an alternative “silver” version of the said “Vintage OG” edition will be touching down in the Man-E-Toys store later this week! Here’s the blurb on the figure for the uninitiated few “A follow-up to last years hugely popular keshi-ball release, the Oozeball has been redesigned by The Disarticulators’ Tru:Tek from the ground up for the new medium, featuring a more organic, Ooze-It like face, paper clay-style textures, plus a cheeky little extra… 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…” Produced in a super-squishy “Ooze-It Green” soft vinyl and fitted with the previously unannounced squeakers on the undercarriage (yep, you read that right!), the limited run of 15 balls have each been treated to simple, vintage-style silver factory sprays courtesy of Rampage Toys.
