MAN-E-NEWS// The “Gourdon” treasure box keshi from Hateball…

“The treasure box is alive and well. Gourdon is alive and well… The *real* story of this little fellow is fairly nebulous: he could actually be the brains behind Mr. Zinewolf after all. Or he could be a cute little buddy. Or both. Regardless of all that, this miniature Halloween-fiend has everything it should take to make you smile and ask him questions about your life and what you should do…just like you presumably already do with Therefore Ghost. These are scions I’m sending you for life-guidance… You may recognize Gourdon’s hat, sure, but you may also be interested to know that you’ve seen his legs before too. This toy is a 100% bootleg-mashup of Zinewolf parts, a glowstick topper from All Hallows-past, and the legs of a costumed young boy who just cannot catch a break.”

Hateball is proud to present the latest figure in his mysterious series of “treasure box” style toys, the crowned pumpkin, Gourdon! As mentioned above, the 3.5″ tall figure has been kit-bashed from a variety of miscellaneous figures including Hateball’s own Zinewolf, working as both a companion and a fully-working “crown” accessory to the highly popular sofubi (see below!). Prototyped and produced by our very own Tru:Tek over at the Disart ToyLabs, Gourdon has been cast up in a rather apt bright orange rubber for his first release. Available in strictly limited numbers through the Hateball store right here, Gourdon will set you back just $18 plus shipping… Look out for more colorways coming very soon!
