Purple Toy’s “Death Melon” soft vinyl figure…

Originally unveiled back in November of last year, it would appear that the newly titled “Death Melon” from Purple Toys will finally be seeing the light of day soon! Pictured here in a variety of different colorways, the huge Unbox-produced figure (approx 9″ tall) has been inspired by a number of cult 80’s staples as far ranging as Madballs and Nightmare on Elm Street, coming with a beautifully organic textured surface that’s juxtaposed with a industrial looking control tower on top. With package prototyping currently underway, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for the first Death melon release within the next few weeks… Keep a close eye on Purple Toys co-owner Chairman666’s Instagram feed here for more info soon!

MAN-E-NEWS// The Disarticulators’ Oozeball release revealed in full…

oozeball promo nu

As promised at the beginning of last week, we’re proud to reveal the full line-up for tomorrow’s Oozeball release! Designed/sculpted by Zectron and produced in a super-bouncy urethane rubber by Tru:Tek, the hugely popular Madball/Ooze-It send up will be touching down in ’open run’ editions of both “Bootleg Neon” and “OG” vintage green for $25 each, a batch of 10 in “Midnight” black again priced at $25, plus a super-limited run of custom hand rubs- available either on their own at $30, or as a set with the Deathball for $80… But that’s not all! Intentionally obscured in the above promo image, there will also be a number of unique versions too, including one-off, never to be repeated colourways and custom vintage-style hand sprays. Heading to the Man-E-Toys store this Friday, November 22nd at 9pm London time, be sure to head over early to avoid disappointment!

NOTE// Until the kinks are worked out with the fully playable Oozeball (softer rubber, complete with OOZE!), these will remain in the same harder “display only” rubber used in previous releases.

It’s been a couple of months since the debut of The Disarticulators‘ Oozeball at Superfestival 63, so it comes with great pleasure today to reveal that the general release will finally be happening at the end of next week! Designed/sculpted by Zectron and produced in a super-bouncy urethane rubber by Tru:Tek, the hugely popular Madball/Ooze-It send up will be touching down in ‘open run’ editions of both “Bootleg Neon” and “OG” green, a batch of 10 in “Midnight” black, plus a super-limited run of custom hand rubs (pictured)- available either on their own, or as a set with the Deathball. Touching down in the Man-E-Toys store next Friday, November 22nd at 9pm London time, expect a full reveal with prices later in the week…

NOTE// Until the kinks are worked out with the fully playable Oozeball (softer rubber, complete with OOZE!), these will remain in the same harder “display only” rubber used in previous releases.

BEST PROMO LONG 2

With Superfestival 63 fast approaching, the Disarticulators are proud to reveal their latest figure debuting at the event courtesy of Rampage Toys… the slime-tastic Ooze-Ball! Designed and sculpted by Zectron, the follow-up to the insanely popular Madball of Death pays tribute to yet another cult classic from our misspent childhoods, the Ooze-It doll, featuring the same instantly recognisable ‘nub’ design replicated recently by the likes of Longneck and Target Earth, albeit with the dark, meticulous approach to sculpting that Zectron is quickly becoming known for. Due to come cast in a slime-friendly super soft rubber for future releases (complete with a tub of ooze!), this initial ‘display only’ preview run has been produced by Tru:Tek in the Disarticulators’ standard urethane stock, available in either flesh or neon green for this release (just 8 in total)… Word has it that these will be making an appearance via the Monster Island NYCC booth next, so we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that production issues with the new rubber can be resolved in time. Keep track of the Disarticulator (Tru:Tek) IG feed here for up to the minute developments…
