Chris Grondin aka Cryptodude has teamed up with music collective Tobacco to transform the Black Moth Super Rainbow mascot into a fully fledged, Madballs-style toy! Designed and sculpted by Chris based on the bubble gum blowing rainbow (albeit with the artist’s signature “siamese face” twist), the approximately 3″ wide ball has been produced in a similar soft latex foam as the original 80’s gross-out balls, coming with layers of vivid sprays and hand brushed detailing. Going on sale through Black Moth Super Rainbow soon, interested parties are going to need to sign up to their mailing list here to be in with a chance at bagging one of these beauties!

Whilst we rather impatiently wait for the release of Chris Grondin‘s latest collaboration with Scumbags & Superstars – the “Melting Man” Slimeball – the king of gross-out foam balls is proud to reveal another figure that’ll more than fill the gap for the time being… the incredible Belial Ball!
