Grizlli Atom’s Madballs-inspired wrestler keshi revealed…

Joining the new wave of similarly themed patches that have just touched down in his store, Grizlli Atom is proud to reveal the first of a series of figures inspired by infamous wrestlers of the 80s and 90s! Whilst we have very little info to go on at present (even the name is still to be decided!), we can confirm that the piece has been directly inspired by James Groman’s cult classics the Madballs, featuring a two-sided head that resembles the one and only “Baby Bull”, Big Van Vader. Designed by Grizlli with the aid of CheapPopShop, sculpted by Macsorro and currently undergoing keshi-style production courtesy of our very own Tru:Tek, interested parties won’t have long to wait until they’ll be able to get there hands on these beauties… More news on the first release as soon as we have something confirmed!

Photo-bombing our recent coverage of the “Psychedelic Swamp” and “Sherbet” Bostyrants a few days back, the latest sofubi from Snatch Punch – rather aptly named “Tit-Tot” – is now up for grabs in a super-limited mixed part colorway! Designed by Snatch Punch’s Joe Truck and sculpted by Grizlli Atom, the disturbingly ample-chested infant stands at around 7″ tall and features 5 points of articulation. Produced in a mix of unpainted blue and yellow soft vinyl, the limited run of just 2 figures can currently be found in the Snatch Punch store for $120 each plus shipping…

Originally teased here earlier in the week, the “Goon Squad” mega collab from GNOSIS, Monster Island and Pop Soda had just been revealed in-full! Unlike originally thought, the previously posted sculpts WON’T be used for a Madball-style release, but are in fact heads for a series of full-size, Rat Fink inspired figures! Loosely based on the (sadly canned) E-Ball-A figure revealed a while back, the trio – Electric Finkinstein, Shroom Goon and Pop Soda – have been sculpted by GNOSIS’ Grizlli Atom, coming in at around 8″ tall with articulation in both the arms and head. Prototyped in a white, black rubbed resin by Monster Island for a limited release at the GNOSIS group show at TAG tomorrow (4/18), we’re told to expect the gang in soft vinyl courtesy of Pop Soda later in the year. Look out for more news on these guys soon…
