Originally teased as a work in progress sculpt at the tail end of last month, the incredible “Grinning Death Ball” (originally the Sludgie Mad Ball) from Chris Dondin and Mutant Vinyl Hardcore has just received it’s first paint test ahead of it’s debut release soon! Designed and sculpted by Chris based on MVH’s original Sludge Demon – along with a little nod to the DX in the form of a skull located on the back – the piece, around the same scale as the original Madball figures at 3″ wide, has been cast up in a similar latex, coming painted in layers of subtle earthy sprays and hand brushed detailing. With just a few alterations needed to the paint app before production ensues, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for the Grinning Death Balls first release over the coming weeks…

Featuring a stunning one-off Flying Freak DX and Toxigon, our personal favourite has got to be the “Leviathan”; an ingenious mash-up Krawluss and Ollie said to be the sworn enemy of Toxigon! Available alongside a whole host of painted runs from Rampage Toys as well as customs from some of sofubi/kaiju’s elite, expect more reveals as we get closer to this monumental event…

As 2014 comes to an end, Rich over at Mutant Vinyl Hardcore has decided to finish up strong with one last monster from the depths, proud presenting the “Toxic Goldfish” Toxigon! Produced in a bright orange soft vinyl, the lumbering beast has been treated to a paint app that pays homage to the vintage toys of yesteryear, coming with a minimal selection of burgundy, gold silver and black sprays that highlight the stunning figure’s many textures and folds. Coming complete with a “fish stick” omake/weapon, sticker and pin – sadly no Mackrel Mouth this time around – the limited run of 25 signed and numbered figures have been priced at $200 each plus shipping. Currently up for grabs via the usual lottery system on the Mutant Vinyl Hardcore site right here, close has been set at 11.59pm Eastern time tonight (12/12), so be sure to head on over and get your entry in quick!

MAN-E-NEWS// The “Unpainted Glow” Toxigon from Mutant Vinyl Hardcore…

After over a year since it’s initial reveal, the first release of Toxigon from Mutant Vinyl Hardcore is finally upon us! The first 100% brand new, hand sculpted figure from MVH since the DX back in 2011, the incredible figure draws inspiration from classic kaiju right through to cult b-movie horror, looking, in MVH’s words, like the lovechild of the Toxic Avenger and Godzilla! Standing at a monstrous 11″ tall complete with 9 points of articulation, the beast also comes with 2 awesome accessories- a massive battle mace and his trusty buddy/omake Mackerel Mouth, a recast figure direct from the original moulds of 80’s gross-out Breath Blasters! Up for grabs in an unpainted GID vinyl for this first run, it’s important to note that this will be 1 of only 2 runs to be pulled from the current mould. Due to a slight shrinkage issue in the original casting, the figure has been left with a slightly shorter tail as a result- and whilst it’s surely not going to affect the overall quality, it’ll certainly make these first couple of runs highly sought after! Up for grabs via the now standard MVH lottery, starting this Thursday, May 29th at 12am EST and running for a 24 hour period, successful applicants will be chosen and notified on Friday. Those lucky enough to bag one can expect to pay just $165 plus shipping…
