MAN-E-NEWS// The custom Madball of Death from Joe Whiteford…

One of the hottest customisers in the scene right now, Joe Whiteford has just revealed yet another masterpiece now winging it’s way to a very lucky private collector- a hand painted version of The Disarticulators‘ Madball of Death! Designed/sculpted by Zectron and produced by our very own Tru:Tek, the split-design 2″ rubber ball has been treated to Joe’s signature mix of decaying skin and bloodied, glistening flesh, coming finished with a photo-realistic, blood shot eye. Unfortunately just a privately commissioned one-off at the moment, word has it that The Disarticulators will be teaming up with the artist for a special run of figures very soon- more news on that as soon as it’s been confirmed!

It’s been an age since we last featured any Muscle Things figures here on Man-E-Toys, so it came with great pleasure today to find that the long awaited Nitro Ball series is now in full swing, with the second figure, the awesome Freddyball now up for grabs! Based on A Nightmare on Elm Streets’ lead character Krueger, the Madballs-style figure was digitally sculpted by Muscle Things, coming cast in his “Official” White Magic stretch rubber. Currently available in 2 different colourways, a UV reactive Electric Blue and Orange Glow, the 2″ wide balls can be found in the Muscle Things store right here for just $22.50 each plus shipping…

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.

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…

Thanks once again to our good friend Jon Malmstedt over at Rampage Toys, the Disarticulators will be featuring at Design Fiesta next weekend! With a nice sized box making it’s way over to Japan as we speak, the guys decided to focus on just 2 of their most recent pieces, the Madball of Death and Oozeball. Coming in limited numbers of both Rampage exclusive Neon Green and Pink, (with a few extra surprises thrown in for good measure!), both balls will be going on sale at the Rampage Toys booth starting Saturday, November 2nd for around $50 and $25 a piece, with any remaining stock likely to head online the following Monday. Keep track of the Rampage Instagram feed here for details of post-event sales soon!

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…

Madball of Death promo1

Following the debut (and sell-out!) of our latest release at Clutter’s Toy Mafia over the weekend, we’ve decided to treat you guys to a closer look at the one and only Madball of Death… Inspired by AmToys’ classic 80′s gross-out toy line, 50′s sci-fi and a dash of neo-kaiju, the incredible 2″ tall figure was designed and sculpted by Zectron, with production duties handed to Tru:Tek. Replete with a number of ingenius design features including a lenticular skull/cyclops head, exposed brain, and hollowed out eyes, the pièce de résistance has got to be the figure’s central mechanism… featuring 2 magnetically joined halves that split open to reveal a grotesque tentacled parasite lurking inside!

Cast in a super-bouncy polyurethane rubber, each ball comes packed with a Disarticulator button, plus some jaw-dropping header art from the collaborative minds of Zectron and Ralph Niese… Whilst the Toy Mafia exclusives have unfortunately already sold out, we will be running a number of others in the run up to the general release in August (including the pictured Test Shot Blue), so be sure to keep your ear to the ground for more exclusive details soon!
