Whilst not strictly a toy, the latest release from horror merch industry leaders Creepy Company was just too good for us Ooze-It obsessed collectors to ignore… proudly presenting the “Oozing” enamel pin! A perfect homage to the cult classic doll, this high quality hat pin perfectly recreates old Oozie’s face to a tee, coming complete with real “working” ooze holes, a tub of ooze to play with, plus a card backer that faithfully recreates the original Ooze-It packaging. Currently available through the Creep Company store right here for $19 plus shipping, a cheaper variant (top right) that comes without ooze can also be found for just $12… As with most of Creepy Co’s releases, we suggest heading over to the store quick if fancy picking them up as they certainly wont be around for long!
Originally going on sale at SDCC ’16 last week, the remaining “Faceless” Zinewolf sofubi from Hateball is now available online!

Priced at an unbelievably cheap $50 plus shipping, the remaining sets can currently be found residing in the Hateball store right here…
