Gory Hole’s Warui Zonbi: Series 1 sticker and pin sets revealed…

With news a little slow today (read: non existent!), we’ve decided to share an upcoming toy-related release from our very own Tru:Tek’s Gory Hole imprint… the Warui Zonbi sticker and enamel pin packs! Featuring Series 1’s SS Wolfgang and zombie baby Selwyn, the pair have been reimagined by famed Japanese horror illustrator Kotobuki Man in his instantly recognisable style, with a group Bikkuriman-style holographic sticker and an SS soft enamel lapel pin marking the first release. Going on sale alongside a plethora of Warui Zonbi one-off sofubi, new Gory Hole t-shirt preorders as well as a number of other pin designs over the next couple of weeks, we suggest keeping a close eye here and on the Gory Hole Instagram feed for the full, exclusive lowdown soon…

They’ve been months in the offing, but we can now reveal that Gory Hole‘s first painted run of Warui Zonbi: Series 1 figures will finally be touching down online later this week!  Inspired by MaBa’s 80’s toy line “Zombies” (ゾンビーズ), as well as cult horror flicks from the 80’s and 90’s, the first series of finger puppet-style figures feature 2 designs; “SS Wolfgang”, taken from the classic nazi dream sequence in American Werewolf in London, and “Selwyn”, the zombie baby seen in Peter Jackson’s early b-movie classic Dead Alive.

Designed by Tru:Tek with control art from fellow horror toy aficionado John Santagada of Radioactive Uppercut, the pair were both sculpted by the legendary Makino-san of TTToy, coming in scale with the original Zombies at 3″ tall, and featuring a similar split torso, capped bottom design. Produced in a flesh-tone soft vinyl for their first online release, an “OG” painted version from Tru:Tek will be joined by a much-requested blank run, both coming dual-packed in a deluxe display box with matching gacha-style purple keshi (find out more about these little guys in our previous post right here).

MAN-E-NEWS// Gory Hole’s “SS Werewolf” Warui Zonbi sofubi prototype revealed…

maba ss werewolf turnaround2

Our editor-in-chief Tru:Tek will be resurrecting the Gory Hole brand in time for a relaunch at DCon in November, bringing along the long-awaited first issue of the ‘zine, new apparel, a follow-up to last year’s bootleg monster rings, plus the debut of the brand’s first ever toy line… Warui Zonbi! Heavily inspired by cult horror toys the Ma-Ba Zombies – albeit with a modern twist – the series is set to feature a whole slew of soft vinyl finger puppets inspired not by the silverscreen’s classic monsters, but instead by the more obscure cult horror creatures that we ourselves grew up with throughout the 80’s and 90’s. With Series 1 featuring a total of 2 figures, we’re very proud today to be able to share with you the first… American Werewolf in London’s SS Werewolf! Heavily inspired by the cult horror flick’s strange dream sequence, the little guy has been re-imagined to closely resemble the “split torso” Ma-Ba aesthetic with help from Radioactive Uppercut‘s John Santagada, coming sculpted in-scale by the legendary Makino-san of TTToy at around 2.5″ tall. Due to be produced in sofubi alongside another soon-to-be-revealed design over the next couple of months, be sure to stay tuned for the full lowdown – including Tru:Tek’s HUGE plans for future releases – soon…
