The Rotten Ones are proud to reveal that they’re the latest to jump in on the recent Madballs revival with their latest figure, the Rotten Ball! Whilst the specifics aren’t available at present, it would appear that the piece comes in a little smaller than the classic 80’s gross-out toys at around 2.5″ wide, coming hand sculpted by TRO and cast in a solid tinted resin. With an official painted release planned soon, anyone looking to bag the figure early can contact the team through the TRO store or via Instagram with their enquiries…


MAN-E-NEWS// The “My Pet Madball” resin figure from Motorbot…

PSX_20140822_084523

Originally teased here as a near finished sculpt a couple of weeks back, Motorbot‘s “My Pet Madball” resin has just been released in the Meathead store! Based on an illustration the artist created a couple of years back, the cycloptic beastie has been inspired by classic 80’s plush “My Pet Monster”, perfectly realised in 3D as an Madball-scaled, 3″ wide ball. Cast in solid resin, the figure has treated to a simple, flat paint job for this first run- which whilst in-keeping with the vintage Madball paint apps, is sadly lacking in the vivid hues of the original toy, or the detailed washes of Motorbot’s usual output. A minor flaw really, and one that both the impeccable concept and sculpt more than make up for… Residing in the store right here, My Pet Madball comes complete with handcuff display base (not pictured) for just $45 plus shipping… Here’s hoping for a blank run of these soon!
