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…

Touching down in the Rampage store earlier today for just $85 each, unfortunately all 3 have long since sold out, so be sure to keep your ear to the ground (and follow the Rampage IG feed here) for details of the next round of hand paints 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. Touching down in the Man-E-Toys store this coming Thursday, March 12th at 9pmLondon time, the silver “Vintage OG” Oozeballs can be yours for just $50 each plus shipping…

photo 1 (74)

With the sofubi Oozeball preorder proving to be a huge success last month, we thought we’d give those early adopters of the figure a little update on its progress. Having been recast in wax and retooled for jointing over the past week, the ball is now in the hands of the factory over in Japan for the final stages of mould making… So not long now! One thing that we neglected to mention during the preorder was our choice of a vintage-style matt finish over the typical gloss of most modern sofubi, which – along with the super squishy soft vinyl that’ll be used – will create a look and feel more akin to the original 1970’s Ooze-It doll. Stay tuned for a reveal of the first test pull over the next few weeks…
