Piggy-backing the recently announced “Moltuss” 8-Ball colourway, John Santagada over at Radioactive Uppercut has just revealed that the awesome soft vinyl figure will be making an appearance in not 1, but 2 new translucent colourways this week! Titled “X-Ray” (crystal clear) and “Pink Eye” (trans pink), the pair have been left unpainted for the release, coming complete with a GID eyeball that has ingeniously been inserted into the head cavity. Due to go up for preorder via the Radioactive Uppercut store over the next few days for a limited 2 week period, expect both X-Ray and Pink Eye 8-Balls to come in at around $40-$45 each plus shipping…

With the last of the Kickstarter 8-Ball sofubi making their way out to pledgees last month, John Santagada over at Radioactive Uppercut has wasted no time in readying the next colourway for the stunning figure, proudly presenting the jaw-dropping Moltuss! Sprayed in a mix of faded orange and yellow and layered with a coal-like matt black, the glowing lava beast stands at mid-sized 5″ tall, coming articulation in the neck and arms. Hopefully making an appearance in the RU store soon for around $50 plus shipping (TBC), keep track of John’s Instagram feed here for more news on the release over the coming weeks…


MAN-E-NEWS// The custom 8-Ball “Radioactive Rumbler” sofubi from Topheroy…

eee

With the first batch of Radioactive Uppercut‘s 8-Ball sofubi finally making its way into collectors homes following a successful Kickstarter campaign last year (check it out here), customiser Topheroy has wasted no time in giving his a full lick of paint! Standing at around 4.5″ tall and coming with 3 points of articulation, the “Radioactive Rumbler has been treated to a similar paint scheme as the previously featured Cadaver Kid custom, replacing Toph’s usual rainbow fades for a more subtle mix of purple, pink and blue sprays with glossy black, white and silver hand painted detailing. Coming packed with the original header and inserts, the custom 8-Ball can be found in the Customantics store right here alongside a whole host of other recently completed pieces for just $70 plus shipping…

Whilst the recent 8-Ball Kickstarter shattered it’s target funding, creator John Santagada over at Radioactive Uppercut has bowed to the requests of fans who missed out by offering up the figure in both “Standard” and “DIY” colourways one last time! Standing at around 4″ of Japanese produced soft vinyl and coming with articulation in the neck and shoulders, the pair are currently up for grabs in the Radioactive Uppercut store for just $50 and $40 respectively. Those interested are going to need to act quick though, preorders will be closing this Sunday, February 23rd at 11.59pm EST! Check out our extensive coverage on the project right here


MAN-E-NEWS// The Bite-Size Radioactive Rumbler sofubi revealed…

JMS_BiteSize-FullReveal1

Hot off the radioactive heels of the successful 8-Ball sofubi figure Kickstarter campaign, John Santagada over at Radioactive Uppercut is ready to unleash the second figure in the Radioactive Rumblers monster toy line… the undead wolfman known as Bite-Size! Teased online through close-up detail shots over the past month or so (pictured below), the stunning figure has finally been given a full reveal ahead of making his way over to Japan for production. Expertly realised by the ‘titan of the Collectible Toy Industry’, Jean St. Jean Studios, based on John’s original design, the piece will make a perfect sparring partner for 8-Ball, standing at a similar 4″ tall, and coming with the same 3 points of articulation… Exact details on the release are still pretty scarce at the moment, but with reveals of the first 2 colourways planned for early next month, and a preorder for late January/early February, it really won’t be too long until we can get to see this bad boy in-hand! Stay tuned to the Radioactive Uppercut Instagram and Facebook pages for full release details and pricing soon…

MAN-E-NEWS// New one-off customs for the Radioactive Uppercut “8-Ball” Kickstarter campaign revealed…

Blurble-8Ball

With just 2 weeks (and 27% funding!) left until the end of the 8-Ball Kickstarter campaign (extensively covered here), Radioactive Uppercut‘s John Santagada is proud to present not 1, not 2, but a staggering 11 new one-off resin customs to be added as incentives starting from tomorrow, August 9th at 8pm EST! Featuring the return of Motorbot and DuBose Art & Design, the pair have been joined by Monster Island, Johan Ulrich, Manny X, Tim Stephson, Blurble One, SeriouslySillyK, Tony Simione, and 8-Ball’s original fabricator, ERA Sculpture. Better pics, pricing and info on the various pieces can be found on the campaign page right here, although we will impart one piece of advice before you head over- the original 13 customs sold out within a matter of minutes, so if you’re looking to bag one from the second round you’re going to need the F5 skills of a ninja… Still haven’t bagged either the DIY or OG painted sofubi versions of the figure yet? Then you’ll be glad to know that both are still up for grabs until the end of the campaign (August 24th) for just $35 and $55 respectively.
