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!


Oriha Kat’s “Pizza Face” Killer Ball…

Japan-based toy artist Oriha Kat  has just revealed a follow-up to his first Killer Ball release “Da Ma Fukuwarain”, proudly presenting the super-gross “Pizza Face”! Once again inspired by cult 80’s toy line Madballs, the suitably “loose” looking sculpt measures in at an authentic 3″ wide (around the same size as a softball), coming hand cast in a squishy latex rubber and treated to a bootleg-style paint app in acrylics. Coming housed in an ingenious package inspired by Domino’s take out pizza boxes, we’re told to expect Pizza Face’s first release in these at Wonderfestival Winter 2016 early next month… But that’s not all! Joining the full-sized release, Kat will also be unleashing both “Da Ma Fukuwarain” and “Pizza Face” in mini keshi-form. Around half the size of the standard balls, these reduced versions have been produced in a bouncy rubber, coming both painted and blank in a variety of neon colorways. Here’s hoping Kat will finally start offering these amazing figures up to western customers soon!
