lime green mad promo blog

Originally seeing a limited resin release at Toy Art Gallery back in May, the Mad Wrestlers from Monster Island are finally getting a release in rubber courtesy of the Disart ToyLabs this weekend! Heavily inspired by the Weirdballs mini figure off-shoots, these ingenious little guys feature modified KO Madball popper heads that have been kit-bashed with a number of different M.U.S.C.L.E bodies. Featuring a total of 6 different designs from Monster Island’s Paul Bas – 3 more than the original release – the group have all been recast by the Disart ToyLabs’ Tru:Tek in a flexible, UV resistant rubber. Coming packed on authentic, hand cut “Madballs Vs. M.U.S.C.L.E” cardbacks featuring art from AshMadeThis, the figures will be making their keshi debut in 2 different limited edition colorways – a vibrant “Lime Green” and the standard “Flesh-tone” – both coming in at just $55 a set plus shipping. Dropping as part of a unique, cross-Atlantic release, expect to see the flesh set touch down in the Man-E-Toys/Disart store on Sunday, September 6th at 3pm GMT (10am Eastern), whilst the lime will be making an appearance in the Monster Island store on the same day 5 hours later at 3pm Eastern… Look out for details of the next DCon exclusive release soon!

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…
